Dewsbury Rams can make the following statement tonight regarding the Bradford Bulls fans forum at the Tetley’s Stadium.

It was announced that Rams chairman Mark Sawyer will become a minor share holder in fellow Championship side Bradford Bulls. This is entirely within the RFL guidelines and will not effect his ownership of Dewsbury Rams and therefore there is no conflict of interest.

Mark remains very much dedicated to the Rams and sees the part ownership of the Bulls as a positive move for the Rams going forward into 2020.

On the forum tonight Mark Sawyer said: “I understand the concerns of our supporters but there is no question over my commitment to the club. I am happy to meet with supporters to allay any concerns people may have and will look to arrange a fans forum as soon as possible where I can talk directly to our supporters on this and other news from the club.”

We will announce a date for the fans forum as soon as possible.
