GROSVENOR CASINO TO STAGE BULLS POKER EVENING

28 Apr 2015

WE are delighted to announce details of the inaugural Bradford Bulls Poker Evening, taking place next month at Grosvenor Casino, Bradford.

On Monday May 11, from 7.00pm, you can join the entire first-team squad for an evening of luck, chance and excitement at the casino based within the city’s Leisure Exchange.

The event forms part of ‘Robbie’s Big 10’, in association with the Bradford Bulls Foundation (Charity No: 1106608) and The Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice (Charity No: 1110457), and all proceeds made on the evening split between the two charities.

Grosvenor Casinos are acting as the main partner for the event, playing a key role in its hosting and organising of the evening.

The Foundation would like to thank Bradford Bulls, Smarta Environment, Credit Resource Solutions, O’Hara’s, Partnership Business Services, FN Bishops, R&R Ice Cream, Narangs Wholesalers, BullBuilder and School ICT Services – who have all agreed to support this exciting and unique event.

Robbie Hunter-Paul said: “It is fantastic to have Grosvenor Casinos supporting what looks set to be a tremendous evening of poker – and entertainment.

“In the name of charity, we would love to see the Bradford Bulls family secure tickets and take on their favourite players away from the field!

“As a trustee of the Bradford Bulls Foundation, I am proud to be working with so many fantastic partners and the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, who do fantastic work to support children and their families when they need it most.

“With over 100 tickets already secured, I would urge anyone who hasn’t already got a ticket to hurry and buy now. This will be an evening to remember!”

Charlotte Scoular, Grosvenor Casino’s events and sales manager, added: “It is always a pleasure to work with any business that has the City of Bradford and its community at its heart.

“Grosvenor Casino Bradford is keen to support local projects and charity fundraisers in and around Bradford and have really enjoyed working with the Bradford Bulls on the fantastic challenge they have set with Robbie’s Big 10.

“Forget me not is working equally as hard in their fundraising efforts around the Kirklees district and across the region and we are especially proud to be affiliated with such a worthwhile organisation.

“Grosvenor Casino is very excited to be host for the Charity Tournament and I know that our members are waiting in anticipation for the Bulls to make their appearance at the poker tables.”

CROSSLEY: 'I FEEL A SENSE OF PRIDE'

28 Apr 2015

RETURNING front-rower Steve Crossley has spoken of his pride after pulling on a Bradford Bulls shirt for the first time in four years during Sunday’s victory over Doncaster, which provided his second club bow.

Crossley, 24, confirmed a return to his boyhood club last week, putting pen to paper on a two-year deal to become a Bull once again.

He spent three years in the Kingstone Press Championship, enjoying successful spells with Dewsbury Rams and Featherstone Rovers, before joining Castleford Tigers for this season.

However, with first-team opportunities proving few and far between, Crossley opted to return the Provident Stadium, Odsal.

And he was in back in Bulls action over the weekend, as Bradford downed winless Doncaster at the Keepmoat Stadium.

“It was fantastic to get back out there, pulling on the Bradford jersey again was a very proud moment,” said the former Clayton amateur.

“When I walked into the dressing room and saw my shirt with my name on, there was a real sense of pride.

“In terms of the game itself, I think we made it a lot tougher than it needed to be but Doncaster played well.

“I am familiar with this division, though, it is incredibly tough and every game is a challenge.

“But we have shown we can score a lot of points. Granted, defensively there are areas to improve on but, offensively, we looked lethal at times.

“Winning ugly is a good habit to have but we will be striving to improve in order get back into First:Utility Super League, competing with the game’s very best.”

Crossley and his fellow Bulls return to Kingstone Press Championship action on Sunday, welcoming in-form Sheffield Eagles to the Provident Stadium for a crunch second versus third clash (kick-off 3.00pm).

Tickets for the round-eleven tie are now available and can be secured by CLICKING HERE

You can also secure stunning hospitality, from as little as £24.95, by calling 08448 711 490 – full details HERE.

LOWES CALLING FOR FURTHER IMPROVEMENT

27 Apr 2015

HEAD coach James Lowes is calling for further improvement from his Bradford Bulls, despite seeing them overcome basement strugglers Doncaster – in their ninth-successive Kingstone Press Championship triumph.

Man of the match Lee Gaskell bagged an impressive hat-trick, with Etu Uaisele and Dale Ferguson notching up braces in a contest which saw front-rower Steve Crossley make his second Bulls bow. 

Bradford led 34-16 at the break but were forced to battle hard late on in order to seal success at the Keepmoat Stadium.

“We did not operate at the levels we have set ourselves in previous weeks  and that was disappointing,” said Lowes, who is sponsored in memory of Joyce Dobby.

“We got the win and, in some respects, got out of jail because Doncaster performed admirably.

“There is certainly room for improvement, aspects of our game were way off the mark.

“We have looked to pride ourselves on our defence this year and, in most games, have kept our opposition to one score.

“But I felt we tired during parts of the game, coming off the back of a huge effort against Hull Kingston Rovers and a tough week of training.

“We will learn, though, and at the end of the day we came away with the win, which is the important thing.

“With Sheffield on the horizon, we have got to come some way in terms of getting our game right.

“But I am confident in our players’ ability and expect us to do so.”

Tickets for Sunday’s visit of Sheffield Eagles can be secured by CLICKING HERE, or calling a member of our team on 08448 711 490 (option 1).

Meanwhile, hospitality packages are now available for the round-11 clash, priced at £24.95 for members of The 1863 Club and £44.95 for non-members.
