New winger set to join Bulldogs

Wingman Wayne Reittie has joined Batley Bulldogs to strengthen the club’s backline for 2011.
Formerly with Doncaster and Hunslet, exLeeds academy player Reittie signed from York City Knights after scoring a try in their promotionclinching Championship One playoff game last month.
Londonborn and still in his early 20s, Reittie is a Jamaican international with explosive pace.
He contacted the Bulldogs after a mixed season with York and said he felt a change of club would give him the chance to kickstart his career.
Fullback Alex Brown could also be back at Batley next season, after initially turning down a new contract with the club.
Brown, who scored two crucial tries in the Bulldogs’ Northern Rail Cup win, has been back in touch to tell officials that he’s still interested in playing at the Mount if interest from Super League clubs doesn’t lead to a deal.
Secondrower Tommy Gallagher has left to join Championship One side Swinton Lions while Johnny Campbell has turned down the Bulldogs’ improved terms, leaving his future still in doubt.
Flying Shaw Cross fullback Pat Foulstone also did his chances of a deal no harm after scoring another longrange try while Batley scouts were in attendance last weekend.
Due to the amount of players and coaching staff away on holiday the club has postponed the president’s dinner, scheduled for Saturday night, until a date next month.
