Bradford legal issues with former players come to an end

Legal action between Bradford and former players has now been brought to an end.

The situation arose when players of the old club, Bradford Bulls Northern Limited, were left jobless following its liquidation.

A new company, Bradford Bulls 2017 Limited, was set up and ultimately took over the Championship club’s place despite technically being a brand new club.

That led to employment tribunal proceedings being sought by players and staff.

Rugby Football League Interim Chief Executive Officer, Ralph Rimmer, said: “The Rugby Football League are pleased with the outcome and in the interest of all parties will be making no further comment on the matter.”

FrontRow Legal representative, Richard Cramer, added: “Over the last 12 months FrontRow Legal have represented a number of individuals who were sadly made redundant on January 3, 2017 following Bradford Bulls Northern Limited entering into administration in mid-November 2016.

“Various claims throughout the period of the Employment Tribunal Proceedings have resolved themselves and following recent negotiations, we are pleased to report that the matter has been resolved amicably.”
