Brandon Pickersgill signs for Featherstone

Featherstone Rovers have announced the signing of Brandon Pickersgill for the 2022 season.

He played out his junior years at Stanningley and Shaw Cross before linking up with Leeds Rhinos between the age of 15 and 16.

He was then recruited by Bradford Bulls where he progressed from the club's academy and into the first team, a journey which included a loan spell at London Skolars. He also represented the u17s BARLA Great Britain side.

Commenting on Pickersgill’s signing, Rovers Football Manager Ian Hardman said: "We believe that this is a strong signing for the Club.

"Brandon has been one of the best young performers at this level for some time and we feel that his development will go to another level working within our environment.

"As a club we have always prioritised investing in some of the best young talent in the game and the recruitment of Brandon shows that we are yet again building a squad that can compete for promotion to Super League."

Pickersgill commented: "I'm really excited to be joining a great club, I can’t wait to get started and to contribute towards us having a top season next year."
