Administrators appointed at Bradford Bulls

Bradford Bulls have announced that administrators have been put in charge of the club.

This follows this morning's announcement that the club has been placed into administration for the third time in the last four years.

Gary Pettit and Gavin Bates, Directors of PBC Business Recovery and Insolvency, have been appointed joint administrators of the Bulls.

A club like Bradford Bulls serves the local community and we will be working towards finding a solution that preserves the future of the club while also meeting the requirements of the Rugby Football League with whom we have already opened a dialogue.

The Bulls say early indications suggest there is interest in preserving the club, including protecting the position of creditors and employees, and this interest will be followed up by the administrators over the oncoming days.
