Dewsbury Rams have recently announced their second new signing for the 2021 campaign.
Jordan Schofield has joined up with head coach Lee Greenwood’s men for next year.
The big bustling prop is looking forward to testing himself at Championship level.
On joining the club, Schofield said: “I got given this opportunity that is close to home and with such a good history and reputation, it was hard to refuse.
“I knew it was a well run club as my ex coach Liam Finn has always spoke highly of Dewsbury.”
Schofield didn’t start his rugby career whilst 14 years of age. The 19 year old has since gone on to play in the Wakefield Trinity academy and reserves.
On his career so far, Schofield explained: “I didn’t start playing rugby until I was 14, which is considerably late for most people in the sport.
“Amateur youth rugby I played at Eastmoor Dragons until I was 16. From there I was picked up by Castleford Tigers at 15 but then shortly after that made the move to Wakefield Trinity, where I have played for the last 4 years.
“I progressed from scholarship, acedemy then signed with the reserve side last year.”
On his main position on the field and his ambitions going forward Schofield commented: “I have always been a prop forward but can play any position in the pack.
“My aim is to become a starting prop for for the Dewsbury Rams first team and get plenty of game time under my belt.”
Schofield is excited at the opportunity to see what he can do in the Betfred Championship. He’s also looking forward to playing his first game in front of the Rams faithful at the Tetley’s Stadium.
Schofield said: “I am probably like everybody else at the club, itching to get back out there after this long year.
“It will be nice to soak in a different atmosphere to what I have experienced in the past.
“It will be a big step up from what I’ve experienced in the academy and reserve set up. Nevertheless it’s something I can’t wait to challenge myself with.”
