Bradford owner Omar Khan is stepping down after just a year in charge.
He rescued the Bulls from administration after a turbulent 2012, but is citing ill-health as the reason behind his decision, and will hand the reigns over to local businessmen Ryan Whitcut and Mark Moore, subject to approval from the RFL.
Khan said in a statement: “Following an exciting year, it is sad that due to ill health, I intend to hand over the reins to new owners, Ryan Whitcut and Mark Moore of Bedzrus, subject to RFL approval. Ryan and Mark both share the same passion as I do for the club.
“My objective, together with Gerry Sutcliffe MP, to move the club from the threat of extinction has been achieved and I have spent every single day for the past year at the club in order to reinvigorate it and bring it back to life. A lot of hard work and investment has gone into Bulls and now it’s time to ensure the longevity of the club, which is part of Bradford’s Heritage. The club is in a much stronger position and the time is now right to move it forward.
“Bradford Bulls will always be part of my life and I will never forget the kindness, loyalty and friendship shown to me and my family by the supporters and everyone involved at the club.
“I would like to thank all the Board of Directors who have worked tirelessly with me to save the club and can confirm that Gerry Sutcliffe MP and Vipin Joshi also intend to step down as Directors.”
