Prime time for Adam Sidlow as he looks to hit peak form at Bradford Bulls

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: The signing of Adam Sidlow, top, is the final piece of the jigsaw as Francis Cummins’ squad rises to 27 The signing of Adam Sidlow, top, is the final piece of the jigsaw as Francis Cummins’ squad rises to 27

Bulls coach Francis Cummins reckons Adam Sidlow’s best days are ahead of him following his arrival from Salford City Reds.

The imposing prop last week became a Bradford player after signing a two-year deal, much to the delight of Cummins.

The Bulls chief had been eagerly pursuing the 25-year-old Wiganer for several weeks after it became apparent that the City Reds were willing to release him from the final year of his contract.

Prop forwards typically do not mature until their mid to late twenties and Cummins believes the Bulls will reap the benefits as Sidlow enters his prime.

He said: “Adam is 25 years old but he has already got plenty of experience from his time at Salford.

“I don’t think we’ve seen the best of him yet and I’ve talked to him about how he can improve his game and how he needs to take the next step.

“I need him to become one of my main men who I can rely on to help the likes of Ben Evans and some of the other young lads in the squad.

“People want to come here but they’ve got to be the right fit for Bradford and Adam most certainly is that. His attitude has impressed me from the outset.”

Cummins has admitted, meanwhile, that Sidlow is likely to be the final addition to his squad before the new season kicks off.

The Bulls coach has so far brought in Sidlow and Jamie Foster on permanent deals and signed Warrington duo Matty Blythe and Ben Evans on season-long loans.

He has also promoted three juniors in Sam Wood, Curtis Naughton and Oliver Roberts into his senior squad, with Sidlow’s arrival giving Cummins 27 first-team players to pick from.

The Bulls coach added: “I think the budget is spent now.

“Maybe things could happen further down the line with other clubs wanting to do certain things but at the moment that’s it.

“I’m happy with what we’ve got and at the end of the day once your money is gone that’s it.

“There maybe other things further down the line but we’ll have to see.

“I’m really happy with the players I have and the attitude and desire they have showed during pre-season.”

Seems like a decent enough signing and certainly in the position where we need more bodies.

Best of luck, Adam, and welcome to Bradford.

The person who writes as mrsraisemeup is an imposter and my wife does not and will not pass any more comments on this site due to this. In fact neither will I.

The person who has done this is easily traced via the site management.

My complaint will hopefully see them removed, but he/she is not worth the effort.

Thank you to the genuine Bulls supporters who have posted some interesting comments, (once we sorted the chaff from the mix). I hope you all have a good Christmas and a happy new year with the right results for our team.

Sorry one more, in spite of all that has been said FC has a squad of 27 which is not a bad result from what could have been none.

Well done Franny, and the new management at the Bulls. We are alive and kicking once more.

And as that most famous of all politicians said:

"Let them do their worst, whilst we will do our best."

No my deluded reprobate.
It is called the law of the land and in certain circumstances. The civil penalties can be quite severe.
Not that I am saying you have overstepped that mark...YET...but you will because you are a little on the stupid side.

By impersonating anyone alive or dead which also includes pen names, is a breach of a persons rights (or their families rights if that person is dead)

And once you post anything salacious that supposedly is the impersonated persons view. You can be held to account.

In spite of your protestations you are not practising the right of free speech.
You and your type are not funny, basically because you hide behind another persons identity, without knowing or caring what damage you do to that person.

Just in case you think either me or my wife are affected by your stupidity.
We aren't, but I ask what right have you got to abuse and castigate anyone else on this site, who may be interested or passionate enough in their team to express their feelings of hope or support for the future of the team, that nearly went under in the most traumatic of circumstances! Which not only affected thousands of supporters, but the people at the club who will suffer that undeserved indignity for a long time to come.

Your future comments will be ignored,
