KEIGHLEY Cougars have announced the signing of Ben Blackmore following his recent departure from Bradford Bulls.

He will stay at Cougar Park until the end of the 2024 season.

Blackmore was recently released from his contract with Bradford Bulls due to a clash in his work schedule, however Cougars' training schedule has far less of an impact on the winger's work life.

The former Bulls man goes straight into contention for selection this weekend against Midlands.

Discussing his signing, Jake Webster DOR said: “Ben is a big strong thing and someone I’ve admired in the game for a long time.

"His carries out of back field really are Championship quality, so to be able to bring that to Cougar Park for the promotion push is something I am really excited about.”
