The Sporting Heroes project team went along to the Bradford Bulls versus Wakefield Wildcats game at Odsal Stadium on 22nd August 2010 to speak to the supporters. Alison Ridler was one of those supporters.

Alison first came along to Odsal sixteen years ago when her son was young so that he wouldn't have to attend a game by himself. Having experienced the friendly, family atmosphere, Alison knows that her son would have been fine alone but is glad that this was the start of her support for Bradford.

Robbie Paul is her favourite player, having scored the hat trick in the 1996 Challenge Cup Final. Being a Bull supporter has helped Alison gain an insight into sport, something she didn't have before.
