BullBuilder took the most decisive step in their relaunch after eight new committee members came on board at their annual meeting.

Simon Foster, son of Bradford legend Trevor Foster, addressed the audience, along with actor Duncan Preston, who is a patron of the supporters' trust.

Simon spoke movingly about his father’s involvement with the club and also presented some of his memorabilia in support of BullBuilder funds.

A BullBuilder spokesman said: “We were fortunate that a very high calibre of candidates came forward this year.

“Not only do we now have individuals on board with a wealth of experience and skill, we also have a fresh injection of ideas and enthusiasm.”

In the second half of the meeting, discussion focused specifically on the future of BullBuilder.

While acknowledging the difficulty of making concrete plans until the new ownership was in place, there was a strong consensus to carry on supporting junior players and to investigate the possibility of fan ownership - though not at the expense of the trust’s core activities.

There was also a keenness to ensure the continued availability of the club’s widely-envied training facilities at Tong, and some interesting ideas were mooted regarding possible links between BullBuilder and the local business community.

The spokesman added: “Once again, we are ready and willing to resume our activities in support of the club.

“What we, like all other fans, are looking forward to now, is finding out who the new owners will be.

“Whoever they are, we will be doing our very best to work with them, to represent the views and interests of the supporters and to take Bradford Bulls forward together.”

Another organisation that won't be detracted from saving our club, with Simon Foster, Duncan Preston along with I understand Henry Paul as honoury President. They are being backed all the way in their aspirations, all they need now is a Junior Bullbuider organisation to take care of our future.
