Hardly think the opinion of a fan is going to change or encourage anything within the Bulls "management team".

However, I would hazard a guess that Chalmers will have a good idea of how next years funding will be distributed.

As for a fair distribution between the clubs - not sure if that has happened to date - its usually a results based reward.

I don't expect us to be pushing Toronto (ha ha!) - but 5th might be achievable and if I am proved correct - will help fill the coffers for next year.


Sorry that comment wasn't aimed at you. I just meant evening out the funding would generally help move away from clubs going down that route.

It was quiet on the terraces because the club allowed supporters to go and sit in the stand at no additional cost. The stand was far busier than normal.

Did they? I was charged £5 for upgrading and that was at about 14.40..

Hmm, it's only second hand info that I have but apparently they put an announcement out over the pa system about it?

I didn't hear that, tbh. It would be a strange thing to do though when the option of transferring must make a bob or two on rainy days. Long before I got a permanent stand seat I've availed myself of that option quite a few times.

There were a large number of junior players from various clubs who were all seated in the stand during the game, along with parents etc, so I guess that may have given the impression of it being fuller than normal. Around where I sit it actually seemed quite a bit less well populated than normal and the terrace looked very thin. To be honest I was quite surprised at 3414, though I guess the kids and entourage would have been included in the attendance even if they were invited for pre-match and got 'freebies'.

We lost Damian Irvine to Bradford PA and he immediately secures new sponsorship for them - with their owner (who WAS interested in Bulls) setting a budget of £1.4 million for a team!
..



Thought Irvine was in a joint role and split his time between us and PA.

It was but it seems now he's fulltime at PA.

Also need to note that next seasons central funding allocation is based on this years final position table - the lower we finish the less funding we receive.

As far as I can see - we need to increase attendances and finish in the top 5 to remain sustainable with the current setup we have.

Not an easy task!


That can't be right. This season we were getting a promoted team's central funding allocation. As long as we finish above 13th place, our central funding will increase next season. Why would our current setup become less sustainable when we receive more money?

We didn't "lose" Wilson, we received a massive cash offer for him which we couldn't turn down. Everyone has his price.

Ethan Ryan - don't know the ins and outs but his agent & Gledhill discussed his options on the podcast they do - about 2-3 episodes ago. The agent was saying his heart wanted to stay with Bradford, but every other variable meant this was the time for him to prove himself in SL.

Damian Irvine still works for the Bulls. He has an official capacity on gameday, in the concourse and at events, walking around. He is very approachable. Is he jobsharing perhaps with BPA?

All I’ve got to go on is the 2017 accounts which as expected didn’t make for pleasing reading. Someone covered the debt. I expect that will also be needed this year as we’re on a very low level of central funding.

Hopefully with around £350k or more for finishing in the top 5 that will ease matters, I think we had only about £100-150k this year can anyone confirm?

Kids taking part in on the day events get in free, but the parents still have to pay.

I never understand companies house documents - the debt you mention, is that the ~£600,000k figure at the end of the account?
