AN EVENING with the Bulls saw long-serving supporter and member of Bradford staff Charlie Ebbage handed a Life Membership.

On Wednesday night, as over 1,000 Bulls fans packed into the Cedar Court Hotel, Bradford, Mr Ebbage was honoured by the club's board of directors, as chairman Marc Green welcomed him to the stage.

He spoke of fond memories, before being presented with his special membership card, which grants him access to all home games – every season, from here on.

Mr Ebbage featured in Bradford Northern's reserve grade during the 1960s and was a close friend of Trevor Foster MBE.

He spent a period on the club's supporters' committee and played a key role, alongside Foster, in raising the £8,000 required for the installation of floodlights here at the Provident Stadium.

Mr Ebbage also served as the club's timekeeper and on the ex-players committee, prior to retiring in 2009.

And we wanted to honour this true Bradford Northern and Bradford Bulls legend, by rewarding him with a Life Membership.
