Dewsbury Rams are delighted to announce the signing of Calum Turner on a 1 year deal.

The 22-year-old fullback joins the Rams after spells with Castleford Tigers, Featherstone Rovers and Newcastle Thunder.

Calum came through the Castleford youth set-up and made 15 first-team appearances for the Tigers. He brings plenty of experience from both Super League and Championship level rugby and can’t wait to get started at Dewsbury:

“It has been a bizarre 48 hours really! I had one phone call with Lee Greenwood and made the decision to sign for the club.

“It is the perfect opportunity for me with Dewsbury not currently having an out and out fullback.

“I really want to get back to enjoying playing rugby and Lee has got a hard working environment, even though it is a pretty young squad.

“Everybody at the club is trying to improve to the high standard needed to compete in the Championship this year.”

Dewsbury Head Coach, Lee Greenwood, is excited to see Calum in the red, amber and black shirt:

“It’s no secret we have been looking for a quality fullback, so when we knew Calum was available we acted quickly.

“He has always performed well whenever I have watched him and the players in our squad, that have played with him in the past, rate him highly.

“He will have a bit of catching up to do after missing pre-season, but once he is up to speed he will prove to be a great addition.

“Calum will enjoy it at Dewsbury and this will bring the best out of him. He ticks all the boxes of what we are looking for when recruiting.

“He is already proven and experienced, but being in his early twenties he has plenty of time to improve.

” Along with the other guys we have, that can cover the fullback position, we feel we now have good competition for places in every position.”
