Relegated Super League side London Broncos have signed Sheffield Eagles centre Matt Garside on a two-year deal from the 2015 season.

The 23-year-old has scored 36 tries in 54 appearances for the Eagles since joining the club in 2013.

"I'm really excited to be joining and starting the hard work to take us into a strong Championship season," he said.

"It's a massive move for me and I am really happy that I have been given the opportunity to become full time."

Garside, who can also play second row, has previously had spells at Gateshead Thunder and York City Knights.

He was recommended to Broncos head coach Joey Grima by Eagles forward Andrew Henderson, who is himself joining the Londoners as assistant coach in November.

"Matt will bring some great Championship experience to the Broncos," Grima said.

"He came highly recommended by Andrew, who had nothing but good things to say about his work ethic and professionalism."
