Shaun Ainscough: Agreed Bradford Bulls contract extension

Bradford Bulls back Shaun Ainscough has agreed a one-year extension to his contract with the option for a further year.

The 21-year-old has made just nine appearances in an injury-hit first season since joining from Wigan Warriors, but five tries in that limited action have persuaded the club to offer him the new deal.

Ainscough said: "I'm really glad to have signed for another year because it's a good club to be at.

"My injury hasn't really helped but they've given me another year to show what I can do and I'm happy with that because I knew it was going to be hard to get a new contract after nine games. But the fact they have signed me is a positive because it shows they can see something in me."

Bulls coach Mick Potter added: "Shaun started the year very well but unfortunately got an injury.

"He's still very young, so he's still got a lot of learning. He's got speed and the ability to score tries and once he's got the ball in hand he's hard to stop."
