KEIGHLEY Cougars have made the notable signing of utility back Josh Martin ahead of the upcoming 2024 Betfred League 1 season.

The Australian has experience of playing in England before, having spent the 2022 campaign in the Championship with Whitehaven.

Martin played 19 times for the Cumbrians, helping himself to four tries.

The 26-year-old, who can play on the wing, in the centres or at full-back, has linked up with Keighley with immediate effect.

That means he could be in line to make his debut for the club in their Boxing Day friendly against Oldham at Cougar Park.
