Ace Freeman back on board for Coventry Bears

Craig Gibbons 22nd Nov, 2018

COVENTRY Bears have confirmed their top scorer for the last two seasons has re-signed for the new League One campaign.

Hayden Freeman has scored 32 tries in 55 games and head coach Tom Tsang was pleased to capture his signature for a further year.

“He has good top line speed and carries very well into contact,” he said.

“Towards the end of the 2018 season Hayden even spent some time in the centre position, adding another string to his bow.

“We still see him as a great winger first and foremost but we will work with him to develop other areas of his game to make him more versatile and increase his attacking threat further.”

Next season will be Freeman’s fourth with the Bears and he is looking forward to getting back into action.

“I’ve seen myself improve year on year and felt I had a strong contribution in 2018,” he added.
