Sawyer happy with squad

DEWSBURY RAMS chairman Mark Sawyer admits the club have reached their salary cap and suggests fans shouldn’t expect any more additions.

The Rams have signed five players in Hamish Barnes, Brad Foster, Gareth Potts, Aaron Ollett and Robbie Ward and Sawyer insists he is pleased with Glenn Morrison’s recruitment.

But the Rams boss will be without Dalton Grant (London Broncos), Joel Farrell (Batley) and Shane Grady (Halifax) next season, after the trio joined forces with Dewsbury’s Championship rivals in a move which left Morrison’s squad lacking depth.

“We’re right on our salary cap so we don’t have much room to manoeuvre at the moment,” said Sawyer.

“We have the eighth highest budget in this division so we are spending and want to do well.

“The Championship is really competitive, but no-one said it would be easy.

“Signing players you target is also a tough task when so many other club’s are chasing them as well.

“But a good pre-season and keeping players fit will see us improve a lot on last season.”
