Newcastle Thunder have added considerable experience to their midfield for 2020, as the Tyneside club have secured the services centre Ashley Gibson.

Approaching the double century mark of appearances since playing his first games in 2005, the former England A cap has enjoyed a highly successful career and will complement the youthful enthusiasm that currently resides in the club’s back division.

A product of Stanningley ARLFC where he started as a nine-year-old, the boyhood Rhinos fans joined that club’s scholarship programme at 15 before making his debut at 18 against Leigh Centurions, scoring a hattrick in a 74-0 thrashing.

Making over 150 Super League appearances with the Rhinos, Salford Red Devils, Castleford Tigers and Wakefield Trinity, Gibson moved to the Bulls midway through the 2017 season and was a key component of the 2018 side that earned promotion to the Betfred Championship.

Restricted to fewer than anticipated appearances in 2019 through injury, Gibson is keen to follow in the footsteps of Kieran Gill and bounce back to form in the Thunder cause
