KARL PRYCE is hoping to relaunch his career at former club Bradford.

The Bulls have today announced they have signed their ex-three-quarter on a one year deal.

Wigan allowed him to leave at the end of last season when his contract expired. He made just 16 appearances for the Warriors between signing ahead of the 2007 season.

His first season was written off by a foot injury and he spent last season on loan at Harlequins.

He said: “To play for my hometown club again is special. When I was 15, and coming through the ranks at Bradford, I think I took that a little bit for granted.

“I’ve played in Wigan-St Helens derbies and I’m really looking forward to getting back into a Bradford-Leeds derby again. I’m just delighted to be back here because I’ve missed the place. I said a couple of years ago that I’d always love to come back to Bradford. In fact I said when I left the club five years ago that I’d absolutely love to one day return. I’ve taken the long way round, via Gloucester, Wigan and Harlequins, but I’m happy to be back.”

Pryce has been handed the Number 33 shirt for this season.

Wigan, meanwhile, have received an initial allocation of 1,150 tickets for the pre-season friendly fixture with Salford City Reds to be played on Tuesday January 24 at the new Salford City Stadium (8.00pm kick off).

Match tickets went on sale at 9am today.
