BRADFORD Bulls Women's team joint head coaches Kirsty Moroney and Beth Sutcliffe have left their roles at the club.

The pair were part of that historic 2017 treble-winning campaign and took charge after retiring at the end of the 2018 season.

Bulls had a poor year last time out, compared to their usual standards, falling short of the playoffs, and getting knocked out at the quarter-final stage of the Challenge Cup.

The club have put on record their thanks to the duo, who have improved player development and help bring through talent for the future during their spell at the helm.

Bulls Foundation issued this statement: "Due to personal commitments, the Bradford Bulls Women’s team co-head coaches, Kirsty Moroney and Beth Sutcliffe have recently stood down from their roles.

"Both are former Bulls and international players, and they played key parts in the history making 2017 Bulls squad, going undefeated for the full year en-route to the Challenge Cup, League Leaders Shield and Super League trophies.

"They took the reins as joint head coaches after the 2018 season and have made great strides in player development and in helping to ensure new talent is identified for the future.

"Everyone at the Bradford Bulls Foundation and the Bradford Bulls thank Kirsty and Beth for the sterling job they have done and for representing both organisations with great professionalism and enthusiasm."

Moroney told Bulls Foundation website: “We have loved the opportunity to work together and develop the players.

"We wish the squad and the club all the best for the future.”
