Competition to name Jersey Bulls' mascot
Primary school children are being offered the chance to create footballing history in a competition to name Jersey Bulls FC’s mascot.
The new club – set to become Jersey’s first team to enter the English league system this summer – will be supported by a bovine buddy on match days at Springfield and primary school pupils around the Island are being invited to give him an identity.
Entries for the ‘Name the Bull’ competition will be shortlisted after the closing date on 17 July, with the winning name being announced at the club’s first Combined Counties League match on Saturday 3 August, against Ash United.
‘The whole idea with the Bulls is to involve the community and this is a good way of engaging the school community,’ said Bulls’ school liason officer Alan Williams.
‘At the moment we’re going round and doing school visits to outline the Bulls programme. We want children to come along on this journey with us and this mascot idea ties in beautifully with it. Hopefully they’ll be quite excited to come on board and get behind the Bulls.’
