Dewsbury Rams can officially announce that they have signed Cameron Leeming from Betfred League 1 side Keighley Cougars.

Leeming has played for various clubs including Hunslet and Keighley.

The 23 year old insists he is ready for the step up to the Championship and is looking forward to joining the Rams.

He said on signing for the 2019 campaign for Dewsbury: “I’m really excited to be joining Dewsbury, I am looking forward to having a good pre-season and putting a shirt on in the friendlies already.

“I had a few other options of different clubs at Championship and League 1 level but the opportunity to play with top level players and work with a good young coaching staff tempted me. I know Rikki (Sheriffe) from my time at keighley and we worked pretty closely when he was there so I spoke to him prior to joining and he really sold it to me. He said I could develop my game to be the best it can be here.”

Leeming is familiar with a number of the Rams players already and says he is looking forward to joining up with them in training.

He commented: “I know a couple of the lads in the team, I played with Adam Ryder and Gabes (Andy Gabriel) last year at Keighley. When I first started out at Wakefield Lucas Walshaw and Kyle Trout were in their 20’s there so I’d trained with them a few times but that was it.”

Finally Leeming explained what his aims are at the club moving forward and what type of player he is.

He added: “My personal aim for this year is to cement a starting spot in the team, I’ve not come here to be a squad player. I want to be testing myself at Championship level week in and week out.

“I’m a hard running centre with a high work rate, I can play in the back row as well, but preferably in the centre. I am looking forward to working with Lee and the coaching staff to see how good I can be.”
