MANAGING DIRECTOR Steve Ferres is urging supporters to get behind Francis Cummins' men on Sunday as Bradford Bulls welcome Catalan Dragons to The Provident Stadium, in round five of the Tetley's Challenge Cup.
Ferres, who was appointed to the role following the club's takeover, last month, is working to strengthen Cummins' roster, today kick-starting a recruitment drive with the additions of Joe Arundel and Jay Pitts.
Victory would see the Bulls into the competition's quarter-finals and Ferres is calling on the Bradford faithful to back Cummins' side into battle this weekend.
“It would be fantastic to see a strong crowd getting behind the boys on Sunday, in what is a very important game for the club,” said Ferres.
“As a club, we have put Easter behind us and are now focusing our attentions on the remainder of the season.
“We are delighted to have secured the services of Joe and Jay for the foreseeable future and are hopeful of climbing the league ladder in the weeks and months ahead.
“I expect a response from the players on Sunday and, with your support, there is nothing stopping us from progressing through to the last eight.
“There is plenty to be positive about, with a host of players returning to action in addition to a pair of talented new signings.
“And we believe, with further additions, that we have a squad which is more than capable of ensuring a Super League future for the club.
“The players are totally committed to the Bradford Bulls cause and are ready to fight for survival. They will stop at nothing to achieve their aim and, likewise, neither will we.
“Away from the field, we are continuing to make huge improvements to the day-to-day running of the club, with a whole host of new initiatives and projects getting off the mark – designed to increase revenue and, above all else, profit.
“Following on from the launch of the brand-new Team Shop and a ticket office and reception, work is continuing to renovate the stadium's terracing.
“I am confident of a bright future for the Bulls and I would love you, the supporters, to stand with us as our fightback continues.
Tickets for Sunday's clash are still available, priced at £15 (adults), £10 (concessions) and £5 (juniors).
