Johnson commits to Oldham

Oldham have announced back Kyran Johnson has signed a new deal for the 2021 season.

Johnson has scored 12 tries in his previous 35 games for the Roughyeds. He joined Oldham from Rovers in 2018 and by scoring seven tries in 15 appearances in 2019 he helped Roughyeds to win promotion to the Championship, playing on the left wing in the promotion semi-final against Doncaster and the final against Newcastle Thunder.

On his new deal, Johnson said: “I’ve always enjoyed my time at Oldham and I’m delighted to sign a new deal.

“I’m a proud Yorkshireman but Oldham is like home from home even though it’s over the border.”

Head coach Matt Diskin, added: “We’ve got quality, depth and competition all across the board. 

“Kyran is a smart lad with a great attitude and a great work ethic. Like everyone else he will be fighting for a place in the backs but I’m sure he’ll be ready for that, both physically and mentally.”
