Marc Green was today confirmed as the new owner of Bradford Bulls after his offer for the club was chosen ahead of four rival bids.

The Leeds-based businessman, the owner Safeguard Security Group Ltd, saw his bid accepted by administrator David Wilson ahead of offers from Richard Lamb, Mandy Koukash as well as consortiums from Bradford Park Avenue and Bradford City.

The Bulls said in a statement: "Mr Green, managing director of Leeds-based Safeguard Security Group, has acquired the club having agreed a fee and terms with the administrator, which was later ratified by the sport’s governing body, the Rugby Football League.

"Mr Green – whose bid was approved yesterday as the successful one – this morning met with staff and players in his new role as chairman.

"Robbie Hunter-Paul is to remain in position as the club’s chief executive and Mr Green has acted swiftly to bolster the Bulls’ senior management team, appointing Steve Ferres as managing director.

"The former Bradford Northern player and Wakefield, Castleford and York CEO is to bring vast experience to The Provident Stadium, driving the club forward into a new era."

Green said: “I am really pleased to have completed the takeover of this fantastic club.

“Bradford Bulls is a major sporting brand in the United Kingdom and I think this has been proven by the sheer volume of national media coverage which the club has received throughout the process of its future being secured.

“I have been working with the Bulls for the best part of six months, prior to this, and I think it is important for the supporters, stakeholders and staff to work towards restoring this club to its former glory.

“Now that the takeover is complete, the team and I are in a position to move forward with the business.

“We are confident, in a short amount of time, we can make a full audit of every business unit and prioritise the aspects that will make the biggest impact.

“We will be working extremely hard over the coming months, with our number-one objective and main priority being to ensure Super League survival for this historic club.

“I am fully aware of the club’s past successes and of its proud heritage, and am keen to build on it in the years ahead.

“I am using the expertise the club already has and I have brought in further knowledge and capability, with the appointment of Steve Ferres, highlighting my commitment to the future success of the Bulls.

“I am delighted to have Steve on board. He is highly regarded across rugby league and his expertise is going to bear fruit in the times ahead and he will help get this club back to where it belongs.

“Myself, Steve and Robbie are fully behind the head coach Francis Cummins and his backroom staff. We believe he is the man to deliver on-field success for Bradford Bulls.

“Finally, on behalf of the Bulls, I would like to thank David Wilson, of DFW Associates, and his team for all of their efforts throughout this process.”

The brand-new holding company, Bradford Bulls Northern Ltd, will now take full control of the club.

RFL Director of Standards and Licensing Blake Solly said: “We welcome the announcement that the acquisition of Bradford Bulls has now been concluded, a move which brings to an end what has been an unfortunate period of instability for a club that can now face the future with renewed confidence.

“We are sure Marc and his staff will receive a warm welcome from the club’s supporters and indeed the whole Rugby League family.

“We would also like to place on record our thanks and appreciation to the official administrator David Wilson for the professional manner in which he handled this whole process.

“Whilst the considerable interest shown in purchasing Bradford Bulls meant that the administrator was unable to effect the sale as quickly as would have been ideal, the interest was also of sufficiently high quality to have provided some compelling evidence of the attractiveness of Rugby League clubs to investors and is a further endorsement of the appeal of the sport."

Not the news many Fans wanted to hear to be honest.
This deal has been done with only the administrators pocket and Marc Greens pounds been put first.
This guy will not bring in any new players this season so i think its the championship for us next year. Its will be great stood on the terraces at the cougars and Batley rather than Warrington or Wigan.
Ferres may have experience but he is living in the dark ages. Maybe he can have a word with Brett to come back the Bulls .
Was hoping for a Lamb /Koukash team but maybe they can still get involved .

I said i was hoping for a Lamb / Koukash partnership but after the news that Lamb would not win his bid due to not meeting the RFL time scale i thought this was strange as the funds were in overseas accounts.
So i will say goodbye to lamb and Koukash.
We will still end up with second rate players coming to Odsal no high profile signings .

the bottom line is we aren't in administration any more
will be an experience in Super League 2. like the sound of the games at Halifax Fev Leigh Dewsbury. not far to travel and we can get behind the team
even fielding youth will be brilliant as they can play as a team and grow as a unit as apposed to new people coming in.
I for one am thrilled to be out of administration.
Can forget about the 2 points at widnes
lets just enjoy the games against the big boys as it could be the last time we see them for a while

You can't just make the admin disappear. You don't get points deducted for admin and points added back on for coming out of it.

Details are sketchy but if Lamb offered £300k to become the top bidder then by default Green offered less, probably the £250k owed to him for example. That means that at least £1.25m of debt has been written off in this administration so the chances of points being added back in my opinion on the information availible is nil.

Presuming if we go down we'll have to release 90% of the squad. Start with youth, we'll have same problem with gelling a new team together, low crowds etc.

Bradford City fell from the Premier League to the basement of English football before getting on the road to recovery after their admins. It sucks, but it's rewarding when you start to fight your way back up. Part of me actually enjoyed trips to Morecambe and Accrington as it made me appreciate the game much more.

3k Bulls fans at the Shay and Cougar Park isn't the end of the world. Infact it's better than having no one to support at all which was a very real prospect.

Obviously lets not write this season off even though it looks bleak, but if relegation should happen the Bulls will still live on which is all that matters.

While a lot of people have resigned to the fact that we are down already, with only 6 games gone, I say keep the faith sport has a funny way of working out...

Everyone should be just pleased the club lives. That's all it can have hoped for such were the circumstances. I would say he is probably a reluctant owner but everyone should be delighted a team in RAB will continue. Of course player are needed but not on the wages some have been on. Saved.

And a better question, will anybody support such moves?

Congratulations to Marc Green. Your first move Ferris as MD seems good so keep it up.
Personally I don't care who owns the club so long as they try to make it a success and remember its the supporters that deserve that after the past 2years.
A player or two would help as we are down to the bare bones.
May be in time BPA could ground share or even MK as an investor.

I do think something strange was going on with the RFL and Administrator agreeing and announcing this so quickly after Mr Lambs bid was found wanting but hay its the RFL so what do you expect.

Now we have the ownership settled lets concentrate on beating relegation by supporting FC and the team.

I agree with THEMANOFSTEEL and TVOR here. Let’s just be pleased we are out of admin and get on with the season. I am now readying myself for relegation as it will be unbelievably tough now to stay up. I have absolutely no qualms about having a season or two in the championship playing Fax, Fev and a few others while we re-build our disgraced reputation. If this had been another club going through what we have been through with the pathetic management we have had we would also be shouting for them to be relegated. So for now, enjoy the season. Give the new owner and Ferres a chance before pulling them to bits just to make you look clever when you are clearly not. If we stay up – great. If we go down see it as a fresh start and support them till we come back up.

Great news that this saga has finally been settled. Disappointed in the way the administrator and the RFL have conducted themselves, especially regarding their lack of communication - Dr Koukash has had a right go on sky sports news, I've just watched the video!

Nevertheless it is done now. Over the last couple of weeks both Mandy and Mr Lamb have been quoted as saying they would like to invest in the club even if they were to lose their bids. Lets see if either of them now stick to their word! If either or both did, and Marc green allowed it, then we definitely could have a good future to look forward to.

Very clever actually dont you think Andy. Take out an 11th hour debernture ,throw chaos into he mix dont pay HMRC who after previous write offs are straight in with winding up order,excercise rights as debenture holder secure control after ridding club of staff contracts in administration,take 6 point deduction not to pay ceditors of £1.5 million (and by now probably a lot more),seize control,recover Wonga typ loa with massive interest,cut costs,cut wages,survive 3rd bottom,get next year £1.8 million sky dosh as opposed to £650000,sell club as going concern for half million inside 12 months to the Doctors wife and................. ......hey presto the Bulls are OK . In fact its so good I might have even dreamed it up myself ifI was"nt as stupid as some on here think. With RFL approval for the the tight ar*e Ferris has a reputation as. Now I could not have done better myself. Things should be OK in the long term now. Fear not fans.The BOSS has sorted it The gypo"s can return to their pile of scrap to sort. Some people are clever in the world and patience not poker are virtues to add to.........perfect timing. Be happy fans.Its the best you could hope for now the lunatics have vacated the asylum.

DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON?
NONE OF THE OTHER BIDDERS SEEM TO KNOW.
FOR SOME REASON THIS BID SEEMS TO HAVE SNEAKED THROUGH THE BACK DOOR.
WHY ARE THE RFL SO IN FAVOUR OF IT?
WILL THIS GUY BE HIT WITH SOME PUNISHMENT FROM THE RFL THAT HE WASN'T AWARE OF, LIKE PREVIOUS OWNERS WERE?
DOES HE TRUST ALL THAT THE RFL HAVE TOLD HIM?
ARE THE RFL FINALLY GOING TO USE A CARROT RATHER THAN STICK ON THE NEW OWNER?
HOW DID THIS DEAL GO THROUGH SO QUICKLY?
WHY AREN'T THE RFL SAYING THEY WILL NEED TO RATIFY THE DEAL AND WILL MAKE A DECISION "EARLY NEXT WEEK"?
WILL HE STILL FACE THE 6 POINTS DEDUCTION THAT BRADFORD BULLS 2014 LTD FACED IF THEY TOOK OVER THE CLUB.
I HOPE THIS ISN'T JUST A WAY FOR HIM TO DO THE RFL'S DIRTY WORK AND RELEGATE THE CLUB WITHOUT CAUSING A FUSS AND ALLOW HIM TO GET HIS MONEY BACK.
I WONDER HOW LONG THIS GUY WILL STICK AROUND? PROBABLY WONT BE AROUND LONG ENOUGH TO SEE A ROOF OVER THE TERRACING!!!

I see Brian has been on Google again. He does not know anything about rugby and is not even the most knowledgeable on the subject In his own house.

Does that mean Mr green has already put 250 k into the club. If it does he has already put more of his own money than the last 2 sets of clowns did. Will we get our points back.
As an outsider and not knowing anything about all this, is this how it works? Does the fact that someone has bought the club now re-write history? If that's the case then there seems to be no penalty to financial mis-management at all, they could just keep going into administration every few months!

so we have a new owner but still more questions than answers. can we buy players,does he even want to buy players,will he invest in the club??.does anyone know if special measures lifted or any points back ???
how does all this happen so quick when all other bids took forever ???
are the rfl going to throw one of their many spanners in just when we think this is all over. so park the red hall JCB's up boys the hole you have dug is big enough.!!!!!
Look up (google) Marc Neville Green & Safeguard Security Group on free director check and company check. The man hasn't got a pot to pxxx in! Put us into administration bought the club from the administrators, what a whitewash considering millions were offered for the club from credible business owners. I feel we are destined for a period of nil investment and asset stripping, I despair that this man has his hands on this club. Watch this space.
