Bradford and Dewsbury announce link up

Bradford and Dewsbury have become the latest Super League and Championship clubs to announce a partnership.

Super League clubs with a “green” rated academy side have been allowed to twin with a side from the Championship, and Leeds, Hull and Warrington have already hooked up with Hunslet, York and Swinton respectively.

The partnership will see Bulls players who aren’t in their 19-man matchday squad and who are too old to play in the new under 19 academy structure to play for the Rams.

Bulls coach Francis Cummins: “We are delighted with this partnership with the Rams.  Glenn Morrison is a highly rated Coach and I am looking forward to working with him in developing players for both clubs.  

“There was a natural synergy with Dewsbury as we already have a partnership with them through our Lottery and I am sure the benefits of this arrangement will be felt at both clubs and in the amateur game.”

The Rams will also have access to the Bulls training facilities, and there will also be a link up with the local community clubs in the amateur game in Dewsbury and Bradford.

The Championship side are coached by former Bradford forward Glenn Morrison.

He added: “It’s something I am looking forward to.  The Bulls have a lot to offer the Rams and we too will be making a big contribution to this relationship.  It’s an exciting time for both clubs and I am sure it will beneficial to the Rams and the Bulls as well as the Community Clubs in both areas.”
