London Broncos have announced that head coach Danny Ward will be staying at the recently relegated club and has signed a new two year deal at the Broncos.
Having being a Broncos stalwart for many years he joined the club back in 2008 as a player and eventually became the club’s head coach. He performed miracles and got the Londoners promoted to Super League when they defeated Canadian side Toronto Wolfpack in the Million Pound fixture in 2018. He then went on to guide his side through a gruiling Super League campaign and took it to the final day for them only to fall short as they were relegated with a defeat to Wakefield Trinity.
Ward who has been praised by all corners of the Rugby League community has been rewarded with a two year contract.
On signing the new contract Ward said: “I am very happy to extend my contract with Broncos and a big thanks to the gaffer, David Hughes, for putting faith in me again. London is our home and I am truly privileged to coach RL in the greatest city in the world. What a job!
“It has been an incredible journey so far, suffering incredible highs and lows along the way, with a fantastic bunch of players and performance staff and I am really looking forward to next season and the challenges that come our way.”
Broncos chairman Hughes said: “Danny is almost a Londoner now and has done incredible things with the squad here in the capital.
“You can tell by the way the boys play that they have a huge respect for him and he has instilled a togetherness here that is second to none.
“I am delighted that he has decided to stay here for another two years and I have every confidence that he and his backroom team will be working harder than ever to get us back to Super League as soon as possible.”
