Loyal Boults signs up for eighth season
Date published: 15 October 2013
FOLLOWING Neil Roden’s retirement, prop-forward Jason Boults will provide the old head in a young Oldham RL squad next season.
Boults (30) has signed a new deal to spend an eighth consecutive season with Roughyeds.
“It’s good to have Jason around because he has that vital experience the young props are lacking,” said coach Scott Naylor.
The former Halifax front-row manr is the fourth prop to go on the Roughyeds’ roster for 2014.
Added Naylor: “You can’t put a price on loyalty and professionalism. Jason has those qualities in abundance. He trains well, looks after himself and is always reliable.
“Despite his many years at the sport’s coal face, he still has a great engine which enables him to consistently produce quality work for long spells.”
Said Boults: “It was an easy decision to re-sign because I’ve always been happy at Oldham.
“Most of the lads seem to be staying and that says a lot about how well the season went.
“We had a disappointing end, but that will only motivate us as a squad to put things right next season.
Roughyeds’ end of season dinner and awards night is at Whitebank on Saturday (7pm for 7.30pm). Tickets (£20) on 0161 624 9630, ex 70552.
