The Batley Bulldogs are on the nomination list for Yorkshire Radio’s Sports Personality of the Year in the category “Team of the Year”. They compete with Hull FC, Yorkshire County Cricket Club, Barnsley FC, Musley Bank and Huddersfield Town AFC. This is a remarkable feat for the club, who only a year ago were almost dragged into the relegation battle in the Rugby League Championships.
Also in the running for an award is ex-coach John Kear, who guided the Bulldogs into the Super 8 playoffs last year. He is in the running for Coch of the Year. His competition includes Lee Ratchford, Jason Gillespie, Ady Hinchcliffe + Edwin Jongejans, David Coldwell and Daren Moris.
Although it would probably be surprising if Rugby League got any awards, let’s get behind the Dogs and John and vote on the YTV webpage here
