Lowes leaves Bradford

Bradford Bulls coach James Lowes has left the club today citing personal reasons for his departure.

Lowe has resigned after being appointed in 2014. Under him the Bulls reached the Million Pound game last year but lost to Wakefield.

“The club puts on record its gratitude for the significant contribution James has made as Head Coach during his 22 months at Bradford Bulls and we wish him every success in the future,” Bradford said in a statement.

Assistant Matt Diskin with the support of Chev Walker will act as interim Head Coach as the process of seeking a replacement begins immediately.

This season Bradford had won five, lost two and drawn two of its Championship games. It was knocked out of the Challenge Cup early by Dewsbury.

“This decision has come with a heavy heart and I have had to make this tough call for personal reasons, and I request everyone respects that,” Lowes said.

“I would like to personally thank the players, directors, staff and especially, all the supporters of this great club for my time here.”
