BRADFORD BULLS are delighted to announce the appointment of Karl Pratt as the club's new lottery manager.

An ex-Great Britain international, Pratt spent three years with the Bulls – as a player – before being forced into retirement due to injury.

The former Featherstone and Leeds star played a key role in Bradford's 2003 treble-winning season, as the Bulls claimed the Super League title, League Leaders Shield and Challenge Cup - inside 12 months.

He was also crowned a world champion in 2004 as then head coach Brian Noble guided Bradford to World Club Challenge success over Penrith Panthers.

Pratt has returned to the club in order to drive 'The Big One' – the club's official lottery.

The Big One was formally reintroduced last week at 'An evening with the Bulls', an event which attracted more than 1,000 supporters to a packed out Cedar Court Hotel, Bradford.

“I am over the moon to be back at Bradford,” said the former Super League star.

“I feel I owe a huge amount to the club. The Bulls helped me realise my dreams, they provided me with a huge opportunity to shine and win trophies.

“Now I want to help give something back. I jumped at the chance to return and am fully committed to helping the club get back to where it belongs.

“The Big One has previously boasted over 16,000 members and it will be successful again. The lottery is a huge part of the club's foundations and we are excited about how far it can go towards aiding future success here.

“We are receiving application forms day in and day out and are setting high targets to ensure our numbers continue to rise.

“The response so far has been overwhelming and we are very much on track to meet our short-term goals.”

Pratt is to head up a four-strong team under the tutelage of 'legendary lottery guru' Alf Davies, which includes administration manager Jeanette Stow, collections executive Denise Krelle and sales executive Graham Murphy.
