Bradford Bulls: Omar Khan leaves club after one year

Omar Khan

Bradford Bulls owner Omar Khan has announced he is leaving the club because of ill health.

Khan's consortium took over the club, who finished ninth in Super League this year, last September after a period in administration.

Ryan Whitcut and Mark Moore will take over at Odsal, subject to Rugby Football League approval.

"The club is in a much stronger position and the time is now right to move it forward," said Khan.

"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.

"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."

Khan was forced to admit the club were facing new financial difficulties in July after the players were not paid on time.
