Bradford have announced that local businessman Andrew Calvert has become a shareholder in the club and will be the Bulls Financial Director.
Calvert is a lifelong supporter of the club, and his appointment follows the recent changes which has seen Omar Khan step aside, and Mark Moore and Ryan Whitcut, along with Ian Watt, take over ownership of the Bulls.
Calvert said: “This club is a big part of my life and I’ve been coming here since the age of 10. That was in the Keith Mumby era and I remember all the dark times with Northern and glory days with the Bulls.
“Although I’m a lifelong fan, the main reason I’m on board is that I think I can help from a business perspective. I believe there are a lot of positive things we can do at the club and a lot of improvement to make.
“I believe we will get this business turned around very quickly because we’ve got people with different core skills sets. If you look at the successful club nowadays, they get their off-field activities right and that’s what allows them to sign better players.”
Bradford are still waiting to have the takeover ratified by the RFL, but Moore is confident the club can now move forward.
He said: “We had a really good meeting with the RFL yesterday and have further meetings on Friday and Tuesday. We’re hoping for some good news very soon.”
