BRADFORD Bulls have confirmed the sad passing of long-serving club timekeeper John Tudor.

He was a popular figure within the community, who had supported Bradford for over 65 years.

He worked diligently at the club for a significant portion of that, having been officially involved there since 1980.

John had had some health problems in recent times, but was able to maintain his role as timekeeper right up until Bulls left Odsal in 2019.

He took over that role when Trevor Foster passed away in 2005, having previously been chairman of the supporters club too.

In an interview with Pulse 2 Radio ahead of Bulls' final game at Odsal Stadium last season, John said he hoped the club would return to Bradford as soon as possible, following their temporary move to Dewsbury.
