London Broncos have retained prop forward Erjon Dollapi who has agreed a new one-year deal at the club.
Albanian-born Dollapi, 21, appeared eight times for the Broncos in 2014 having made his Super League debut in April 2013. Dollapi came through the Broncos Scholarship at Under-16s level and progressed to the Under-19s academy, he also played at West London Sharks as a junior and more recently during the past two seasons he has spent time on dual registration with London Skolars.
Head coach Joey Grima said:
“Dollapi showed some good promise in 2014 and I’m pleased to have him on board for the coming season. He is another player who has come through our youth set up and worked hard to make it to the first grade and should be applauded for that.
“The key for Dollapi this season is to work alongside some of the more experienced forwards in our pack to help bring his game up to the next level.”
“There are a lot of changes and Joey has really taken the club forward.
“Joey coaching is one of the main reasons I came back,” he said. “And the older players with mature heads that I can learn from. I’m still a young player and I’ve got a lot to learn.”
