London Broncos is delighted to announce that former Catalans Dragons and Leigh Centurions player, Eloi Pelissier, has signed a new two year contract keeping him with the club until the 2021 season.
Pelissier joined the Broncos towards the end of 2018 and was an integral part of the squad that won promotion through the Million Pound game in the 2018 season.
Pelissier spoke to us and said, “The first reason that I have re-signed is the pleasure I have had since I arrived. I like the way we train each week and the philosophy behind that from the coaching staff. It is important that we all become better players and better people at Broncos and I like this too.”
He continued, “London is an amazing city but I have enjoyed it alone. Signing a two year contract now gives me the chance to bring my family here to enjoy the city as much as I do and maybe my son can even learn English!”
“I would like to thank Danny Ward and the coaching staff and also the Chairman David Hughes for bringing me here and for the confidence they have shown in me since my arrival. I also have to thank my wife and family for their ongoing support and for accepting the sacrifice we have all had to make.”
“To the fans. From my first day here I have given my everything to get the club from the Championship up into Super League and I will continue to do so for my time here in London. Now, we fight to stay up as we are all London!”
Having moved to London without his family Pelissier showed the intent that the club and especially Chairman David Hughes was looking for.
Hughes said, ” Eloi has been an outstanding signing for us here in London and has shown his commitment to living here from day one. It’s not often a player will move without his family to live in a foreign country but Eloi has done just that. He has shown in every game how passionate he is to wear the Broncos shirt and he has embraced our capital city as if it were his own.”
Head Coach Danny Ward told us, “Eloi is one of the most experienced members of the squad and we are pleased he has committed to the Broncos. He is a great professional and a real competitor in all he does. He had a big influence when he came in mid-season last year and played a big part in our promotion to Super League.”
