We’re thrilled to announce vastly experienced hooker Shaun Lunt has joined Batley Bulldogs.

A career covering Workington Town, Castleford Tigers, Huddersfield Giants, Hull KR and Leeds Rhinos has seen Shaun score over 160 Tries from the Number 9 spot, making over 300 career appearances.

A Grand Final win with Leeds Rhinos, 3 Challenge Cup Final appearances and international honours, Shaun brings a huge amount of quality and knowledge to the club. Chief Executive Paul Harrison told us “This is a massive signing for the club. To have a player with this level of  experience is invaluable and we’re excited to be welcoming Shaun to The Bulldogs.”

Head Coach Craig Lingard has beaten of a number of high profile clubs, all interested in the Super League star, and the signing has been made possible thanks to the support of club sponsor, Signature Resin Floors Ltd. Paul Clayton of Signature Resin Floors added “We’ve really enjoyed our time involved with Batley Bulldogs so far and we’re happy to be able to help wherever we can.”

As always BISSA have added their invaluable support to the deal and continue to back the club on a weekly basis.
