Stuart Duffy told a supporters meeting at the Bulls last night that they were looking to link up with having Dewsbury Rams as a feeder club.

If it means we get afew decent lads on season long contracts then it cant be too bad but feeder club we dont want to be which imsure we wont be. Glenns still going to sign his own players and anyplayers we do receieve from the Bulls must be on seasonlong loans if possible, not a clutch of dual reg players who come and go everyweek because that is what we certainly dont want as it will not help us onebit becoming the Bulls reserves team! It would also lose us fans as why would us fans want to support the Bulls reserve team?

If its 2 or 3 players a season, which imsure is what it will be, like we had Singleton and Hood last season from Leeds then i dont see it been a big problem aslong as they stay the majority if not all of the season....

Personally I don't want us to be associated with any one SL team, If dual reg or loan becomes necessary, I would prefer the coach to be able to choose from available players at any club able to fill our player requirements. What makes duffy think we'd want to be tied to a club that's on parole anyway ? Tommy G has a job with the warriors hasn't he ? lets get in bed with them if it's necessary.

I like the link and assume you will take the nickname of both clubs and combine them to make

"bull-######"

@OLLOCKS no way will be a feeder club.The more the boards try to force it the more it will be resented.

I think it's just a few first teamers that don't make first team on game day, don't think its a case of us being bulls reserve squad.

Don't be fooled.

It'll be the crumbs they throw you.

Hmm maybe, I tend to read the local newspaper on a Friday in the school library and I think it was the press that said that.

A few years ago we were supposed to link with the Bulls, but it was no more than running the lottery and a per-season friendly. Can't see this amounting to much.

Wonder if they've told rochdale yet, who if memory serves correct, also had a special relationship with the bulls a couple of years back - fringe players to join them, promising young players being sent to learn the game with them blah de blah de blah - all bullocks. :angry:

The big announcement Tom was talking about early this week looks to be this news,swapping players,able to use the Bulls training ground in Tong.Maybe even going Rams and Bulls games at reduced cost.I'm sure Tom will put on the official statement later.It had to happen sometime soon with the Bulls.Anyone going to be part time Bulls fans ? :o

Another link up to go with the link up we already had ? Sharing players like Addy and erm...... Why on earth would we want to link up with a club that is on trial as far the SL are concerned? It's like Britain aligning it'self with the Greek economy. :huh: Wonder if we'll get discounted curries as bradbury ticket holders B)

So in 12 months Bradford could be announcing their own link up with a superleague club.

Our own players could join bradford if they have ambitions of SL?

Surely not in the middle of the season? This will be at the end of the season yeah?

If so the links not too bad but we dont want our best players joining bradford halfway through a season or for odd games, leaving us without keyplayers! That would be a disgrace. AND LOSE US FANS!!

After all the positives that have been coming out of the club, I'm not convinced this a continuation of the positive vibe!?

The futures bright, the futures RED AMBER & BLACK!
