London Broncos retain homegrown duo

London Broncos have retained homegrown duo Will Lovell and Sid Adebiyi for the 2021 Betfred Championship season.

Lovell – from Northampton - made his debut for the Broncos back in 2012 and has spent his entire professional career in the capital across spells with the Broncos and London Skolars. 

The 27-year-old is the Club Captain and impressed throughout the Broncos’ most recent season in the Betfred Super League during 2019. 

Broncos boss Danny Ward said: “It’s great news for the club that Will has extended his contract for 2021. Will is yet another academy product who has been at the club a long time now, an influential member of the squad and brings plenty of experience at the top level.”

Adebiyi made his professional debut for the Broncos back in 2015 and stepped up as a crucial player throughout the club’s impressive Betfred Super League exploits last season.

“We’ve seen Sid develop all the way from our scholarship program into a Super League player. He transitioned well from prop to back-row last season and came up with some fantastic performances at the top level. 

“We are really looking forward to seeing that progression again next season. Sid will once again head up the energy and enthusiasm department for the team.”
