Bulldog legend Alex Brown has signed for Batley Bulldogs for the 2016 season after being released from Halifax a few weeks ago.
Alex has been a great favourite with fans since he scored two fantastic tries in the dying minutes of the match against Widnes Vikings in the Northern Rail Cup 2010 to bring the cup to Mount Pleasant, and always seems to save his best Rugby for Batley. In his last stint for the Bulldogs in the last season he scored 13 tries in 14 appearances. We will be hoping for this sort of form in 2016!
It is no secret that John Kear has long been a fan of Alex, and announced his interest long before his release. The signing adds further depth to the Batley squad, especially in the threequarters.
