Joey Grima signs Broncos contract extension

London Broncos coach Joey Grima has signed a contract extension to remain at the club until the end of the 2016 season.

Grima joined the club in February this year as an assistant before replacing Tony Rea as head coach in May. His original contract was due to end at the conclusion of the 2014 season.

“I’m absolutely delighted that David Hughes has given me this opportunity.” said Grima.

“My wife and I are extremely happy at how the fans, the club and the Rugby League community have embraced us.

“Living in London, one of the best cities in the world, has created an enormous opportunity for my family. I’m so happy that the UK will be my adopted country for the next two years.

“I’ve had to make some difficult decisions, particularly with the player roster moving forward, and I felt that I needed to create the right winning culture. I’m delighted with the squad we have and the great cross section of youth, enthusiasm, experience and maturity. Not only am I taking on this role to build a successful rugby league firsts programme but also so we have a successful youth and scholarship programme.”
