Jamie Langley tells Bradford Bulls fans: I'll never forget you
"Bradford supporters really are brilliant fans and I’ll never forget all the backing they’ve given me", said Jamie Langley
Jamie Langley paid tribute to Bulls supporters after making an emotional farewell to the club on Saturday evening.
The long-serving forward’s 13-year association with the club ended after the 58-6 home win over Huddersfield.
Langley played no part after failing a head test after being knocked out against London the week previously but he, Michael Platt and Keith Lulia all said their goodbyes during a post-match presentation on the pitch.
Langley, 29, said: “I think I must have had about ten head tests building up to the game but it was just getting worse so I just had to call it quits.
“It wasn’t meant to be but it was great to be able to say thank you to the fans for all the outstanding support they’ve given me during the past 13 seasons.
“I was really humbled by it and I think the Jamie Langley song is the best song in Super League!
“Bradford supporters really are brilliant fans and I’ll never forget all the backing they’ve given me.”
Langley has yet to decide his next move and it is a similar situation with Platt, who bowed out after seven years at Odsal.
Platt told supporters after coming off the bench: “I just want to thank every single fan who has stood by me through the thick and thin, especially the ‘Barmy Army’. Stick with the team – they will come good.”
Lulia, who enjoyed a dream send-off with three tries, said: “It was awesome to get my hat-trick in the last game.
“To win by that much to makes it a game that I will always remember and I couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out.”
The Bulls finished the season in a respectable ninth position and coach Francis Cummins was delighted to bounce back from the humiliating defeat to London Broncos.
He said: “It would have been awful to end the season on that note but the players have showed a lot of character. They have worked really hard and it’s pleasing to see them rewarded.”
