NATHAN Conroy has become the latest player to leave te Keighley Cougars.

The Bradford-born hooker, who started his career at the Bulls, has quit Cougars Park to sign for fellow Betfred League One side Coventry Bears.

The 23-year-old, who made 19 appearances, scoring two tries during his two seasons with the Cougars, says he is looking forward to making the move to the West Midlands.

Conroy said: "I wanted to sign for the Bears to give me a new challenge in my career.

"The Bears have improved a lot over the past few years and are now seen as a very respected team within the competition.

"I am looking forward to helping them progress even further and I believe I have the qualities to do this.

"I am looking forward to ripping in during the 2019 season and try and guide the team to their most successful season - something I believe is more than capable of happening."

Conroy was involved in the Bradford Bulls scholarship system from the under-15s and was given a two-year professional contract midway through the 2013 season.

Conroy joins Scott Law to go out of the Keighley exit door, after the club's players and staff have still not received unpaid wages.
