Bradford Bulls have appointed joint administrators, after confirming they had been put into administration earlier today.
Gary Pettit and Gavin Bates, Directors of PBC Business Recovery and Insolvency, have been appointed joint administrators of the Bulls.
“A club like Bradford Bulls serves the local community and we will be working towards finding a solution that preserves the future of the club while also meeting the requirements of the Rugby Football League with whom we have already opened a dialogue,” said joint administrator Pettit.
“I appreciate the club has been in this position twice before in recent years and in my own view ensuring it does not occur again will be paramount.”
Early indications suggest there is interest in preserving the club, including protecting the position of creditors and employees, and this interest will be followed up by the administrators over the oncoming days.
