Jackson Extends Stay at Belmore
The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs can confirm that Josh Jackson has re-signed with the club, for a further four seasons, through until at least the end of 2020.
Jackson, first arrived at the club as an 18-year-old before making his NRL debut in Round 18 of season 2012 against the Melbourne Storm and has since gone on to play 107 games for the club at NRL level.
The 25-year-old didn’t see himself playing for anyone else in the future.
“It’s awesome, it’s always a privilege and an honour to pull on the blue and white jersey and to be able to do that for another four years, I’m over the moon,” Jackson said.
“To agree on the four years is really big and great for me, it’s a great commitment from both sides and I’m stoked it’s all done.
“I’ve been at the club for a fair while now, the club developed me and they showed a lot of faith in me when I was younger. The players, staff and fans make this club so great and I didn’t even think about going anywhere else.
“Coming from the country, the values instilled in you are to be a one club man and the next four years helps in hopefully being able to achieve that. I’d love to stay at this club for life.”
On top of his club achievements, the Gulgong junior has gone to the next level and represented Country Origin on three occasions, NSW six times and has also played for Australia twice.
“I put a lot of my success down to the team’s success. There is a great bunch of players here and coming into the side in 2012, we were in a really good patch and since then we’ve performed quite well. That has definitely helped with my developed.”
