BULLS have named a 22-man squad for their game against Halifax at Odsal on Boxing Day.

And fans attending the 12:30pm kick-off will ge the chance to see plenty of new signings and upcoming teenage talent.

New signings Dec Patton, Elliot Hall, Kieran Gill and Sam Scott are all set to make their first appearances for Bulls, while young talent Coby Nichol, who joined from Leeds in the off-season, is in line to play too.

Nichol is not the only teenager in the 22-man squad either, with Joe Burton, Lewis Camden, Adam Horner and Sam Arundel all selected too.

Jordan Baldwinson, who has had two previous loan spells at Bradford, is due to play his first game as a permanent Bulls player.

Long-serving captain Steve Crossley has been selected, as have the club's two new vice-captains, Jordan Lilley and Rhys Evans.

Matty Dawson-Jones, who had his 2021 season ruined by injury, makes a welcome return to the squad too.
