Batley Bulldogs have slashed admission prices for Sunday’s Betfred Championship clash against London Broncos in the hope of attracting another four figure crowd (kick off 3pm).

Batley offered free admission to everyone for their last home game against Sheffield Eagles, which helped form part of the Great Get Together weekend in memory of former MP Jo Cox.

A crowd of 2,328 attended that fixture and Batley are hoping many of those will return for Sunday’s key game, when admission has been cut to £10 for adults, with kids again going free.

The Bulldogs community team will be running The Fox’s Fanzone behind the Driver Hire Glen Tomlinson Stand pre-match, there will be live music before and after the game, while half-time activities include the crossbar challenge.

Bulldogs season ticket holders can claim a free drink from the bar or kitchen with the Sheffield Eagles voucher from their booklet.

Batley will be aiming to end a five-match losing run when top-four chasing London visit.

The Bulldogs welcomed back Dane Manning, James Brown and Tom Hemingway from injury last week but they were unable to overcome in-form Halifax as they went down 50-12, a result which leaves them seventh in the Championship table.
