Keighley add former Bradford utility

Keighley Cougars have announced the signing of utility back Alix Stephenson after a successful trial period.

The utility back arrives at Cougar Park on a one-year deal, and the Stephenson name will enter a third generation at the club.

He follows in the footsteps of his Grandad, John, Father, Andy, and Uncle, Phil, in playing for the Cougars.

“Alix has brought a sense of professionalism to the club,” said Head Coach Rhys Lovegrove.

“He has brought this professionalism ever since I first brought him into the club on trial for pre-season and it is a rare quality to find in a player as young as he is.

“Alix has a real thirst to learn and expand his knowledge and ability of the game and has improved in every single session since we began training in November.”
