Winger Dave Halley has signed a new contract with the Bradford Bulls which will keep him at Odsal until the end of the 2009 season.

The Welsh international joined the club in 2002 from Dudley Hill and has made 20 appearances for the Bulls, scoring nine tries.

"We're delighted Dave's re-signed. He's turning into a valuable member of the squad," said head coach Steve McNamara.

"He's a local lad from Bradford which is important too and it's great news."

McNamara added: "I'm really pleased he's around for another year. Dave's whole attitude is excellent and his game is really developing while he's a pleasure to have around."

The news is a big boost ahead of the Bulls West Yorkshire derby with Leeds Rhinos on Friday night at Odsal.

"This is the only club I want to be at. Bradford is where I'm improving year after year and it's the coaching staff here that is the reason for that," explained Halley.

"As much as the Bulls are a big club, I need to keep developing and they can help me do that.

"With brilliant players like Paul Deacon and Glenn Morrison around as well, it really helps and I'm delighted to be staying.

"I'm a Bradford lad and I'm glad to get it sorted. Now we're all looking forward to playing Leeds."
