Hooker Highton Happy To Move To The
Capital

London Broncos latest signing for the 2004 season is Salford hooker Dave Highton.

The 23 year-old former GB Academy player will link up with the squad in Dubai on Monday.

Highton and Neil Budworth will be Tony Rea's two specialist hookers in the 2004 squad.

He has played with Salford for the past three seasons although spent five seasons with Warrington Wolves, where he made his top-flight debut in 1997. He said: "This is a great opportunity for me and I am really excited about next year and the time ahead in Dubai."

CEO Nic Cartwright believes with the influx of so much young British talent to the new squad, the Dubai experience will prove even more useful: "I've been really impressed with the enthusiasm these young guys have shown and I know the more experienced squad members will be impressed as well.

It's an exciting time for our club and our supporters and particularly those travelling to Dubai to watch us play."

The next couple of months will be so important on a longer term scale."
