JASON Walton was a late addition to Jon Sharp’s 2017 roster, having arrived from Bradford Bulls, in January, after the former Super League champions became liquidated.
Walton, 26, is a key addition and could prove a great addition this year, having previously represented Wakefield and Salford in the sport’s top flight.
He debuted as a professional in 2009, aged 19, for the then Salford City Reds and moved to Batley Bulldogs prior to the start of what proved a fruitful 2010 campaign for the club.
After making more than 100 appearances for the Bulldogs, scoring 51 tries, Walton returned to Super League, with the newly-named Salford Red Devils, before daprting for London Broncos two years later.
Having spent 2016 with Wakefield Trinity, appearing 18 times, the talented three-quarter was signed by Bradford - on a two-year contract.
He never appeared for the Odsal outfit, due to their financial collapse, allowing him to make a much-desired move to Featherstone for 2017 and beyond.
