BRADFORD Bulls has confirmed, following a short absence, Robbie Hunter-Paul will not be returning to the club.

Hunter-Paul, whose exploits as a player for the club are well documented, served as chief executive after joining Bradford from Huddersfield Giants in July 2013.

“I would like to thank everyone for their amazing support over the past three years. Following our recent addition to the Hunter-Paul household I am looking forward to spending some much needed time with my family after what has been an incredibly demanding period."

“Whilst I will no longer be involved in the day to day running of the business, I can never leave the Bulls, because how can you leave something which is intrinsically a part of your being and personality, and I look forward to attending games in a non-working capacity.”

– Robbie Hunter-Paul

The 40-year-old will continue in his role as a trustee of the Bradford Bulls Foundation and will continue to put together a team of ambassadors used to help support and promote the wonderful work both the Foundation and club do throughout the community.

“I am saddened to see Robbie leave, but understand his position and wish him and his family all the best.”

– Club chairman Marc Green
