Hunslet make double re-signing

Posted by

Hunslet have completed the double re-signing of Jimmy Watson and Jordan Andrade for the 2020 season.

Watson will honour the second year of a two-year deal and will go into a seventh campaign with the Parksiders.

He told the club website: “I’m heading into my seventh season at Hunslet and I’m enjoying it here as much as ever.

“It felt as though I was coming home when I joined us from Leeds, especially as the fans gave me such a warm welcome. And that feeling’s never gone, nor has my rapport with our supporters.”

Meanwhile, Andrade joined the club near the end of the 2019 season, and Hunslet had to beat a few teams in a battle to gain his signature.

He added: “I’ve really settled in here. It’s good to be at a place where you feel valued.

“I think I played well in my four games towards the end of last season and I was very impressed by Head Coach Gary Thornton.

“Hunslet have good plans in place and are building for promotion from the Betfred League 1, with GT getting a strong squad together. I hope I can help the club achieve that goal, and I’ll be doing my best to play my full part in our bid.

“I also want to get a good year of Rugby League under my belt as I’m keen to cement my place in the Jamaican set-up ahead of the 2021 World Cup.
