Former Bradford Bulls Player, CEO Ekoku Emerges In Consortium Bidding To Take Over

Former Super League rugby side Bradford Bulls player Abi Ekoku has "emerged as a key figure in the consortium who are expected to take over" the club, according to Andy Wilson of the London GUARDIAN. Ekoku, who was a "Super League champion with" and later the CEO of the Bulls, is now a "director of the Yorkshire-based property developers Candelisa Resorts," which is understood to have provided "substantial extra funding to the bid from the London-based businessman Richard Lamb that has previously been rejected by the administrators." The deadline for bids "was last Thursday and a decision was expected early this week" (GUARDIAN, 3/21).
