Sidlow signs new Bulls deal

ADAM Sidlow has put pen to paper on a new two-year deal with Bradford, meaning he will be with the club until at least the end of 2017.

The 27-year-old front-rower is in his third season at the Provident Stadium, after arriving from Super League Salford prior to the start of the 2013 campaign.

A former Widnes Vikings and Workington Town star, Sidlow has made 18 appearances this term, scoring six tries as James Lowes’ men continue their push for promotion back to Super League.

This announcement arrives as the first of many to be made in the weeks and months ahead – and Sidlow is overjoyed to be staying put.

“I love Bradford,” said the towering prop forward, who is sponsored by Gareth Rider.

“The Bulls reignited my career when I signed from Salford. Faith has been shown in me and, hopefully, I have been rewarded for serving up some good stuff this year.

“I did not look elsewhere. Bradford came in early and let me know that they wanted me, so I was happy to sign because I love it here.

“I am determined to play my part in ensuring this club returns to where it belongs – Super League. That, fingers crossed, will occur this season.”

Sidlow and his Bulls teammates return to Kingstone Press Championship action on Sunday when they host Batley Bulldogs in the Armed Forces Weekend clash.

The round-nineteen fixture is to be dedicated entirely to commemorate ‘Brothers In Arms’ and those who risk their lives to defend our country.

And we will be raising funds and awareness for The Royal British Legion during an action-packed afternoon of entertainment, which will see the British Military take over the Provident Stadium, Odsal.
