RFL allow Mark Moore to continue Bradford Bulls role

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Mark Moore, right, has been given the green light to carry on as acting chairman Mark Moore, right, has been given the green light to carry on as acting chairman

Mark Moore was yesterday given the green light to continue as acting Bulls chairman as the club edges closer towards a change of ownership.

The BedzRus owner resigned as a director of OK Bulls Limited last month, leaving Ian Watt and Andrew Calvert as the company’s sole directors.

RFL rules state that a club chairman can only assume the role if they are a director, although Moore looks certain to return to the board once the club’s ownership has been transferred from Omar Khan into the hands of the current regime.

And after a positive meeting with the governing body yesterday, Moore was given the go-ahead to continue to lead the club.

Bulls chief executive Robbie Hunter-Paul said: “The RFL were happy that Mark can function as acting chairman to allow us to continue to move forward.”

The ownership saga appears to be drawing to a positive outcome with Moore revealing on Monday that “contracts are being drawn up and we are moving towards a swift conclusion on that front.”

Hunter-Paul said he was “upbeat” after yesterday’s meeting with the RFL and also paid tribute to the club’s administration team for “going above and beyond the call of duty” during the past few weeks.

Will be so pleased when khan is gone. He used the club for his own means and then bailed.

I don't believe he used it for his own means. He put a lot of money in and now looks like he's agreed to write most of it off so the club can move forward He took over because nobody was willing to do so. He underestimated what was needed to run the club financially. He overestimated the support he would get from the Bradford public. Hoping to sell 10,000 season tickets was never going to happen. He also overestimated the support he would get from the other 13 SL clubs who all agreed to take money off him.

What would have happened if he hadn't got involved we'll never know. But we probably wouldn't have a club at the moment.

Yes and if Omar had not stepped in we would not be in SL now. He held his hand up and did something, unlike negative bloggers on here. Also paid with his health!

I also believe it is unfair to start having a go at OK now. Yes he was naïve and clearly wasn't fully aware of what he was getting into and can’t afford it. We should at least give him some credit for giving us another year and now hope these three chaps have better ideas at running the Bulls. OK has probably lost a lot of money. I am pleased he is moving on as he isn't the man for the job but a “small” thank you wouldn't go amiss. Good luck to the new owners, we need sound financial management for a few years.

Some believe anything. For health reason read made a pigs ear out of the job by letting Whitcut have free reign on the running of the club.
He appointed him so he has to take a share of the blame.
As for no other bids availible, there was it's just Gerry and Omar put themselves in pole position by giving up half of their central funding only to go back and cry it unfair after using it to secure the deal to buy the club.
Ever since Gerry called out Akbars begging him for money you could see trouble was ahead.

Well if you Believe that London you must believe in fairytales too ! there were 3 parties willing to take over the club , there is no evidence what so ever Omar put any money in the club from his own pocket however there is plenty of evidence to show how much he took from the club. The club is 900k in debt from Omar’s reign including the loan from Bradford council we still have to pay back.

On top of that he used club funds to pay for club functions at his restaurant had suits made for all his family including 6 for himself paid for my the club from Greenwoods he took linen & silverware from the corporate suite & paid for flights to Dubai through the club masked with tails for finding sponsors.

So you are quite right London he`s a top bloke!

The only naive people are those who believe OK is some kind of philanthropic benefactor whose only interest was saving the club

Whilst he may be known for his 2 restaurants he derives most of his income from his property portfolio

When it appeared the club was going to be dissolved by the administrator he stepped in a bought it for a pittance typical of a property speculator

His aim was always to flip the club for a quick profit & in Whitcutt he had a willing victim (the last venture he bought from OK closed because it could not finance its debts)

When the club was in need of extra cash to pay wages unlike the likes of Davy, Lenagan, McManus, Moran OK made sure the money he put in was in the form of a directors loan which he expects to be repaid in addition to any settlement he has agreed for the transfer of shares

From the outset his motives have been entirely self centred yes he took a gamble on retaining the superleague franchise for the 2013 + 14 seasons but that is what speculators do & with his crony Sutcliffe at his side it was'nt that much of a gamble as no doubt he used is position as an MP to bring pressure to the RFL

I dont know what the next chapter in this saga will bring or if Moore Watt & Calvert can deliver the business model we have heard so much about

At this stage they seem to posses the integrity skill & vision needed they see the club as a business first which is essential given they do not have the personal wealth of some other chairman & they have already taken steps to ensure the club is not run beyond its means

True Bradford fans will understand this & stick with them as for the rest of the glory hunters they will either go somewhere else or convince themselves that watching the odd match in the pub makes them a fan!


Either way we are in better hands than we ever were with OK at the helm

Alot of sense in this. Might be a good idea for many to take their heads out the sand and give this a good read.

Please tell us the other bids on table. ABC, BCFC, Ice lolly, greenwoods bradford Park Ave all lost interest after RFL imposed sanctions or asked for more info. Only other bid on table was from SL Europe.

If you know otherwise please give details

Aye one player sold for a figure that would wipe out the Bulls debt with cash to spare. Sad times.
So true, but it has not wiped out city's prophesied losses, even tho Wembley twice in season!!!
Don't beleive all Mr Lawn says in the paper. The hard up tale was to soften the blow regarding Nakhi leaving, which now he has gone has been switched to he demanded to leave.
is there such as thing as a BCFC forum anywhere else?

This is not a forum, it is an online newspaper with a comments section aimed at the public of Bradford and district. Many City fans have a big interest in the Bulls, some a passing interest, the two don't have to be separate or at odds with each other.

With all your inside knowledge of both teams maybe the T &A should do away with the two correspondents for the Bulls and City!!!!

I'll step in here if I may.

Guilfoyle confirmed he has received "a number" of bids for the Super League club and would be meeting with the Rugby Football League on Tuesday.

Don't believe the way Omar and Gerry have painted this as theirs was the only bid.
The only bid acceptable by the RFL was the actual reason, because it was unconditional, is my understanding> The RFL turned the rest down, or they pulled out because of the conditions that were placed by the RFL for the sale.

Simple.

Because he will be a director as soon as the paperwork with OK is sorted,

Doubtless the RFL were mortified to learn what happened to the club on OK's watch.

Next?

Think the comments asked for were on the actual topic of the article. If you can be bothered reading about City then go away and do it. Anyway I've learned something new. I actually thought their ex centre forward was called Mackie Wells! Don't think my new found knowledge will ever be used again though.
