Goulding Joins Academy Ranks
Bradley Goulding is another of the Wolves' young stars to join the club's u19 Academy.
He is a tough, young, outside back with heaps of potential and in recent years he has moved position from loose forward to centre and recently to fullback, where he will continue to develop his natural ability and strengths.
Danny Fullerton, Brad's head coach during his time on the Wolves' Scholarship, is excited to see Brad progress into the U19 Academy. "Through Brad's performances both in games and at training he has shown a real desire to work hard and challenge himself as well the group.
"If Brad continues to listen to the advice from his coaches and persevere with his development, I have no doubt that he will do well within the game of rugby league"
Brad played his community club rugby for Widnes St Maries and his previous coach Martin Scott has always rated Brad's ability and knew he would sign professional terms. "Brad is a 110% player who always looks for work either in attack of defence. His ability and strength with ball in hand makes him a real danger for any team. Brad is also a great person to have in the dressing room and is loyal to his team mates."
As a player Brad is a huge threat when running at a broken line and is certainly not afraid of the contact. Defensively there are few better for his age, Brad is fearless and prepared to get stuck in and as a last line of defence he will add a lot of confidence to the U19 Academy.
Brad was first introduced to rugby by his dad and since then he's had a great influence on his progression along with coach Danny Fullerton. "It's a great feeling to have been signed by Warrington. I've been waiting for this day a long time and have been working hard for it as well. I know the hard work starts from here though. The facilities at the club are brilliant as is every coach so I couldn't ask for more."
Brad's father and former player Bobbie Goulding, who is very proud of his son's achievement, said:
"As parents we are so proud and delighted that Bradley has shown the hard work and determination to gain a professional contract with Warrington Wolves. His willingness to win is second to none and we are confident he will excel even further under his new coach Gary Chambers."
