London Broncos have confirmed the signing of pivot Matty Fozard from Sheffield Eagles on a two-year deal, the club have announced today.

Fozard, 23, is equally adept at playing hooker or in the halves and was viewed as one of the most talented players plying his trade outside of Super League and, after the Broncos secured promotion via the Million Pound Game, he will be turning out for the capital club in 2019.

Of the acquisition of the Welsh international, London head coach Danny Ward – voted the Betfred Championship Coach of the Year for the season just ended – said “we have kept a close eye on Matty throughout the season and he has performed consistently well.” The former Leeds Rhinos player added that “he is young, hungry and will benefit massively from being in a full-time environment.”

Fozard, who started his professional career with St Helens, was pleased after his move was confirmed. “I’m ecstatic to be given the opportunity to play for the London Broncos for the next two seasons,” he outlined.

Meanwhile, the Broncos have extended the contract of one of their star players, James Cunningham. Out of contract at the end of the 2018 season, the pivot was expected to move to a Super League club. However, the club’s surprise victory over Toronto in the Million Pound Game led to their promotion and, as a result, 24-year-old Cunningham has extended his stay with London.
