Adam Sidlow

Front-rower extends deal until the end of 2016 season.

Adam Sidlow has agreed a new two-year contract extension with Bradford Bulls, keeping him at The Provident Stadium until at least the end of 2016.

The 26-year-old's current deal was due to expire at the end of this season.

But having secured his long-term future, former Salford man has spoken of his delight, paying tribute to Bradford Bulls boss Francis Cummins.

"A big thanks must go to Francis as he gave me the initial opportunity and he has helped me gain a new deal here, which I badly wanted," he said.

"This is such a massive club and it really is an honour to play here.

"Despite what has gone on over the past couple of months, off the field, I would not change a thing. I absolutely love it here.

"I would like to think my best years are still ahead of me – I feel as though I am progressing as a Super League player.

Head coach Cummins brought Sidlow to Bradford in time for the start of last season, and he went on to make 19 appearances in 2013, scoring five tries in the process.

Cummins added: "I am delighted for Adam. He is a towering front-rower with, I believe, a huge future ahead of him.

"He gets better with every game he plays and given the fact he still has a number of years ahead of him, I am extremely excited about having him on board for a further two years.

"Adam is undoubtedly a key figure in our team and I am sure he will become even more integral this season."
