Giants sign promising English youngster

Huddersfield Giants have signed 23-year-old full-back Olly Ashall-Bott on a ten month deal. The former Widnes Vikings player had spent time at North Wales Crusaders on loan and London Broncos, and most recently joined up with Ian Watson at Salford Red Devils, playing three times on loan from the Broncos. 

Ashall-Bott is expected to join up with the squad when the Giants are cleared to resume training, which is hoped to be later this week.

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 a full preseason under his belt & working with the backroom team at the Giants, Oliver is with the right group of players to prove he is a top Full back and will create even greater competition to our outside backs."
