YESTERDAY we began a search across our social media channels to find a young Bradford Bulls supporter, who attended the game on Sunday.
The Bradford community responded in their masses, helping us to locate seven-year-old budding Bull Harry Smith.
Sunday's final score sadly reduced the youngster to tears, on what was an emotionally charged afternoon at the John Smith's Stadium, Huddersfield.
He was photographed in the Telegraph & Argus on Monday – and the image pulled on the heartstrings of Bulls supporters, directors and staff alike.
This prompted a search to find young Harry and put a smile back on his face!
Having found that Harry was a rising rugby league star himself, playing as part of West Bowling Under-7s side, we are delighted to invite him to live the life of a Bulls player for the weekend.
Harry will take part in the ‘Team Run’ – the infamous final training session before a game – on Saturday morning.
Then, 24 hours later, Harry will join the players for the pre-match warm-up, before leading the team out onto the Provident Stadium turf ahead of kick-off.
Harry will also be the honorary recipient of squad number 39 for the remainder of the season.
Speaking on behalf of the club, a spokesperson said: “While being the cause of many people’s grief on Sunday, we are delighted to be able to put a smile back on a child’s face.
“Harry’s emotions showed just how much our club means to each and every single supporter and, in a tough situation, reminded us why we are working tirelessly to bring back success."
