Jamie Foster joins Bradford Bulls after terminating St Helens contract

Bradford Bulls sign winger Jamie Foster on a one-year deal following his departure from St Helens by mutual consent

By Nathan Lawrenson

Bradford Bulls have made St Helens’ goal-kicking winger Jamie Foster their first permanent signing for the new season.

The 22-year-old spent the final two months of the season on loan at Hull due to limited opportunities at Langtree Park, and he has now elected to terminate his contract at the club.

“Jamie has got some great experience already for such a young man but he’s also got to prove a few points here,” said Bradford coach Francis Cumming.

“I think he did that at Hull and he needs to kick on again now.

“It will be hard for him as well, initially, to leave Saints after such a long time but he’s got to take the next step in his career, as a lot of our players have had to do.”

The club have also unveiled a new sponsorship deal, thought to be worth in excess of £1.2m, to sell their stadium’s naming rights – the Odsal will now become The Provident Stadium.

Provident Financial Group will also acquire shirt advertising in a deal which is to be spread across four years.

“It’s great news for the club and the city and the sponsors,” said Gerry Sutcliffe, honary chairman and Bradford North MP.

“In these difficult economic times to get sponsorship of this level which secures the club’s future for the next few years is really important.”
