YOUNG KEIR TAKES NO.18 JERSEY

05 Mar 2015

BRADFORD Bulls are delighted to unveil the 18th member of James Lowes' 2015 squad.

 

The No.18 jersey was up for grabs as part of The Big Kick-Off Raffle last month and 11-year-old Keir Claxton (pictured above alongside Robbie Hunter-Paul) has been unveiled as the winner!

 

Keir, who plays for Keighley Albion – an official Bradford Bulls Connection club, was gifted a raffle ticket by his parents.

 

And the youngster was last week named the winner of the top prize in a competition, which included a £500 cash prize and winners of various other fantastic prizes.

 

“We are delighted to hand over the coveted No.18 jersey to the very lucky Keir,” said a Bradford Bulls spokesperson.

 

“It is fantastic how the prize was won via one of the community clubs our foundation is currently working with.

 

“He will take his place in squad, both online and in print, and we look forward to welcoming Keir and his family to the Provident Stadium, Odsal, in the weeks and months ahead.”

 

Keir's profile will be placed on the official website as of this weekend and his details will also appear, alongside his Bulls 'team-mates' in The Bulletin – from now until the end of the season!

BULLS TO TURN UP THE HEAT ON GOOD FRIDAY

04 Mar 2015

BRADFORD Bulls will play host to local-rivals Halifax in what is sure to be a fiery encounter on Good Friday (April 3) – and the Bulls Foundation are aiming to increase the heat of the derby!

 

The Foundation is to stage a charity firewalk right here at the Provident Stadium, Odsal, as part of Robbie's Big 10, the 2015 charity campaign of Bulls chief executive Robbie Hunter-Paul.

 

In a bid to raise funds for the Bulls Foundation, the firewalk is supported by West Yorkshire's Little Heroes Cancer Trust, who provide support for children suffering with cancer, and Santander UK.

 

It will see participants attempt the ultimate challenge, walking across 20 feet of burning wood embers with a core temperature of over 1000°F.

 

The firewalk will take place pitchside and Hunter-Paul himself will be taking part.

 

The former New Zealand star is now calling on supporters to join him and help raise funds for the club's official charity.

 

A £25 registration fee is payable to take part in the event and we ask participants to raise a minimum of £100 each in sponsorship money.

 

If this sounds like the challenge for you then contact the Foundation TODAY by CLICKING HERE.

 

PLEASE NOTE: A one-hour seminar will take place prior to the firewalk, meaning you will need to be at the stadium before 5.30pm on the evening.

ROOLEY AVENUE TERRACE CLOSED THIS WEEKEND

04 Mar 2015

THE Provident Stadium's Rooley End will be closed to spectators this weekend.

 

Bradford Bulls officials are trialling the closure of the terrace in order to generate a greater atmosphere, by moving supporters closer together.

 

However, the main terrace (behind the tunnel) will remain open throughout the course of the 2015 season, providing high capacity levels in a popular area of the ground.

 

Admission prices are fixed for all terraced areas of the Provident Stadium, Odsal.

 

And we have some exciting news to share with you over the coming days, regarding what will be taking place at the Rooley End.

 

Bradford Bulls Media & PR Manager Ryan Sparks said: "We are trialling the closure of the Rooley Lane Terrace in order to focus on the concentrating of supporters into areas of the stadium in which we have invested extra resources into, in terms of matchday experience.

 

“This includes the earlier opening of certain areas of the stadium, improved bars and meeting areas and the all-new 'Incredibull' Family Zone.

 

“It is known in sport that supporters help create an atmosphere, which ultimately creates the overall experience.

 

“This measure will also avoid the diluting of an atmosphere within what is a very large stadium.

 

"Supporter experience is at the forefront of our minds, as we want our and our opponents' fans to enjoy the best-possible gameday.

 

"We want to create a better atmosphere and are lucky in the fact that we are part of sport where supporters do not need to be segregated.

 

"More so, we are committed to operating a viable business and as we hope supporters would agree, efficiency is vital in that. Again, this is the club showing that is it operating as efficiently possible while building on the matchday experience.

 

"Excitingly, we have some great things planned for the Rooley Avenue end of the ground, which we hope to launch this coming weekend.

 

"In order for supporters to get the most of out of what we are hoping to bring to the Provident Stadium, we believe bringing everyone closer together will be beneficial.”
