THEY have helped secure the retentions of the likes of Jordan Lilley and Ebon Scurr, as well as the marquee signing of Dec Patton, and the Bradford Bulls Squad Booster Association were able to celebrate a monetary milestone this week too.

The BBSBA, which is an independent organisation raising funds to support first team recruitment and retention of players, have this week announced that they have raised over £10,000.

That money has gone a long way towards what has been a healthy turnover of players over the off-season, as well as the retention of some of Bulls' key men.

To commemorate the achievement, Bradford head coach John Kear and his assistant Mark Dunning this week presented some of the key members of the BBSBA with a five-figure cheque.
