Kittrick signs for Thunder

Newcastle Thunder have completed the signing of halfback Josh Kittrick.

The former Doncaster star spent time on loan at Newcastle’s League One rivals Oxford last year, and also has Championship experience from his time at the Dons.

“I want to push on this year and try and do something in league and Thunder were very keen for me to come and join,” said Kittrick.

“It’s a positive place which has really good facilities and an ambition to achieve things in the game and I wanted to be part of that.”

“I know a few lads who are coming up here and the fact the Thunder wanted me made it very appealing.”
