SUPPORTERS trust BullBuilder have organised a sponsored walk to help fund new changing rooms and equipment for the Bulls’ Academy.

BullBuilder are looking for a legion of over one hundred fans to join Marc Green and Robbie Hunter-Paul as they walk 10.5 miles to the Tetley’s Stadium for the Championship away game at Dewsbury on Sunday, April 10.

The raised funds will go towards supporting the work of the Bulls Academy and Scholarship system, as well as work on developing the changing rooms for the youth teams, as we look to produce future Bradford Bulls stars.

BullBuilder spokesperson Paul Butterworth said: “The next BullBuilder project is to raise money to refurbish the Academy changing rooms at Odsal to make them a fit and proper place for our emerging talent.

“The changing rooms are in poor condition but once renovated they’ll be suitable not just for our U16s and U19s, but will enable the club to host community teams at the Provident Stadium.”  

Hunter-Paul said: “It’s funny how I always get pulled into these physical challenges.

“Last year, I did the city run, slept rough and jumped out of a plane at 20,000 feet for the Bulls Foundation, as well as pushed a wheelchair ten miles and had my legs waxed for one of the players.

“Anytime we come together to support our club as a community collective makes us stronger.

“So I encourage as many people as possible to join the walk if you have the time and are physically able to.

“We can celebrate the journey we are currently undertaking and at the same time look forward to the upcoming match that afternoon. If you cannot make it personally, you can always show your support by donating to the campaign completely lead by the BullBuilder supporters group.”

The walkers will depart the Provident Stadium at 9.30am and make their way down the traffic free Greenway. They will also travel on a few miles of road before arriving at the Tetley’s Stadium in plenty of time for kick off.

There will be plenty of refreshment stations/checkpoints along the route and marshals at major road crossings. There will also be transport back to the Provident Stadium for those who need it.

To put your best foot forward and join Green and Hunter-Paul as well as your fellow Bulls supporters, email to get your registration and sponsor forms.

Meanwhile, Bulls U16s and U19s players are now benefiting from some of the most cutting edge sports science equipment in the world thanks to supporters trust BullBuilder.

The club has recently taken delivery of a highly engineered jump mat system from Australia that is used to measure agility, power and speed.  

Players perform a variety of exercises on the mat which are monitored and measured and can be assessed by the conditioning team to help improve performance.  

Head of Conditioning Gary Dempsey explains:  “The Jump Mat system allows us to test all the play-ers to develop their speed and agility whether they’re at full fitness or recovering from injury.  

"You can use the system to collect results and see if they’re improving.  

"We can watch the exercises on computer and slow things down so we can give feedback and improve performance.”

“Only a few Super League clubs have this technology and it can be used by all the playing staff.  

"It’s a piece of kit that keeps the Bulls amongst the leaders in the world for player development.”

Head of Youth Development John Bastian said “Once again BullBuilder have come up trumps for us.   

“The jump mat is a very significant piece of equipment that is going to be a real benefit to our young players but also to the 1st team squad. 

“I’d like to thank all the BullBuilder members for their contributions that made this purchase possible.”

BullBuilder spokesman Paul Butterworth said: “This equipment helps maintain the Bulls position of having a world class junior development setup.  

“The U16s and U19s will get great benefit out of it and it will help promote speed and agility that will have a great benefit on the field.”

“We’re hoping to provide more help to the club in 2016 and would like to recruit more members to help us do that.  

“Youth development is crucial for the club in the long term so this is a great cause to get behind.”
