“Roco came in to work with us for a period last season and we kept tabs on him over the course of the summer.” MacFarlane said.
“He played for us against Salford and not only did he have a fantastic game, but he was also really good for the group.
“He’ll be a good addition as we continue to strengthen the squad. It’s a positive that he’s already been around the group and I think, like all of the goalkeepers that we have at the club, he suits our style of play and we look forward to working with him.”
