Huddersfield Giants sign Olly Ashall-Bott

Huddersfield Giants have signed Olly Ashall-Bott on a ten-month deal ahead of the 2021 Betfred Super League season.

Ashall-Bott came through the ranks at Widnes Vikings whilst also spending time with North Wales Crusaders and London Broncos.

The 23-year-old most recently joined up with Ian Watson at Salford Red Devils, featuring three times on loan from the Broncos and scoring one try.

Huddersfield Giants Head Coach, Ian Watson said: “Oliver has shown massive potential over the last few years but has had a tough run of injuries to deal with.

“Oliver came to join Salford on trial last year lacking game time and fitness and he proved all the work he had done in rehab at London had put him in a great position physically and his performances against Warrington and Hull KR didn’t disappoint. 

“So, with the full pre-season under his belt and working with the backroom team at the Giants, Oliver is with the right group of players to prove he is a top fullback and will create even greater competition to our outside backs.”
