JOHNNY Wilkinson has become the latest player to rejoin Keighley.

The former Yorkshire under-19 player, who has been playing for Sutton in the Craven League, has followed in the footsteps of Paul Quinlan in returning to Lawkholme Lane.

Wilkinson, who has played for Keighley as a junior (from 2006) and senior (from 2010) and can also keep wicket, is looking to bat in the top five for the All Rounder Cricket Bradford League Championship Division Two club.

After only a year away, the 24-year-old is excited to be representing Keighley again.

He said: “It will be great to be back at Keighley for the upcoming season – it’s a fantastic club at which I have many friends, and it will be good to be back out on the pitch with them.

"There’s a real buzz at the club at the minute, with the previous signings of Quinny and Richard Gould, and I’m privileged that I will get to be a part of it.

"Also I’m looking forward to seeing Richard Gould score runs for Keighley, as I’ve seen him score enough against us!”

Wilkinson added: “Obviously the main goal for the season is promotion, and I hope that I will be able to offer something to the side to help them achieve this.

"On a personal note, I will be aiming to be in the running for the batting averages – not just for the club but also for the league."

Meanwhile, Keighley are still working hard behind the scenes and are hopeful of completing at least two more signings within the next month.
