Trevor Foster MBE (1916-2005)

Without doubt there would be no Bradford Bulls today without the work of Trevor Foster.

Not only did he score 130 tries in 432 games for the club, the Newport-born forward also helped save it from extinction when it folded in 1963. Foster, who was awarded the M.B.E in 2001, won three GB caps and also played 16 times for Wales, seven as captain.

The initial response to this Book of Condolence is phenomenal. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to leave a message, and also to the media outlets including the Bradford Telegraph & Argus, the BBC, as well as the Bulls for publicising this Book.

This Book of Condolence will remain on this site for as long as this site is on the net. A single hard copy version has been given to Trevor’s family.

Rest in Peace Trevor. You will remain a giant of the game – Steve Newcombe, Southampton

Sincere condolences to Trevor’s family and many friends. I am not old enough to have seen the great man play, but being very proud of the history of our game, It shows what a sport we have when it produces men with the quality of Trevor. A truly great player, respected by team-mates as well as opponents. R.I.P. Tom Morgan.

Rest in peace, a true Rugby League legend who will be remembered by all in the game. A rare breed. From a St Helens supporter

A very sad loss for Rugby League. My grandfather tells me he made is debut against my club (Hull FC). Not many people have such a long association with any club; something we should all learn from. My deepest sympathy to the family of a proper legend

Thank you Trevor for all your faith over the years in both Bradford Bulls/Northern and also the City of Bradford. Faith that many a Bradford born person hasn’t had – so for a Bradfordian by choice rather than birth that is true faith. R.I.P

Rest in peace Trevor, you were a true gentleman and a selfless ambassador for Bradford.

Good night Trevor Foster. A true legend of Rugby League you will never be forgotten.

A sad loss of a very nice man. R.I.P. Trevor.

RIP, A sad loss to both his family and the game.

A true gentleman and a fantastic servant to both Bradford and the game of RL as a whole. He will be sadly missed. My sincere condolences to Trevor’s family, friends and the Bradford club Rachel (Rhinos Fan)

Will miss you down at the Central Library Trevor. My wife Cuier sends her condolences from China and wishes to be remembered to you. All the best memories. Jack. (Bullmastiff)

Rest In Peace Trevor, you were the true meaning of a legend and will be missed from everyone within Rugby League. (Daz – a Saints fan)

I had the very good fortune to share Trevor’s company on several occasions, something I will always treasure. Trevor was a true gentleman and a giant of both Rugby League and Rugby Union, and both codes are the sadder for his passing. Whatever words I say will never be enough to express my sorrow. May his family gain solace in the thought that every person that met Trevor was inspired by his modesty and humility. R.I.P. Trevor Foster. Raymond Goldstrong.

Rest In Peace Trevor. A true legend of the game. – Justin Marchant, Leeds.

The word “legend” is used too easily today but I think this is one man who deserved the title. I’m too young to have seen Trevor play but if it weren’t for him I doubt there’d be a Bulls for me to support today. Rest in peace Trevor. You were one of life’s great people

Words cannot convey what Trevor meant to the supporters not only of Bradford but Rugby League as a whole. He will always be in our hearts as the legend he truly is and the perfect gentleman he was. Rest in the arms of the angels Trevor. Sincere condolences to his family. The Johnson Family Rick, Gill and Natalie.

I had the pleasure of meeting Trevor Foster on a few occasions. A gentleman and a true legend in every sense. Despite everything he achieved in sport and in life, he remained humble and genuinely thrilled, surprised and a touch embarrassed at any praise sent his way. He never quite thought he deserved any of it yet he deserved much more. A lesson in humility that many would do to follow. RIP Trevor, you’ll be missed more than you’d believe possible.

I remember going to Odsal over 30 years ago and my Dad pointing Trevor Foster out and telling me what a great man he was. I remember him leading the fundraising for our first floodlights (in 1979 I think), and watching him turn them on before we played Saints. He has always been at the heart of our club and I don’t think it’s an overstatement to say we owe the club’s existence to Trevor. As a teacher who worked in Manningham I was also aware of the tireless work Trevor put in at the Police Boys’ Club and as an Educational Welfare Officer. Young Asian lads once pointed him out to me and told me what a great man he was. In an age of cynicism and pessimism in our city Trevor shone out as a giant. This great man had dignity and grace. I never saw him play but I will always remember him shedding a tear when we won the Challenge Cup at Murrayfield. Rest in Peace Trevor, and thank you. Tim Bleazard

It is a great shame to lose such a Legend. We will all miss you at the Bradford games, both first and Academy. Without you, there would be no Bradford, and we are all grateful for the work you put in. A true gentleman. You are a rare breed and without a doubt a Bradfordian at heart. Rest in peace sympathy to Simon and the rest of Trevor’s family. Liane Holmes, Bradford

Bradford, both the club and the city, were fortunate to have such a man devote so much of his long life to them. Andrew Foster

R.I.P Trevor A true legend and a wonderful man , you will be sadly missed by the people of Bradford and the sport of Rugby League for whom you gave so much . thorpebull

Goodbye Trevor. I’m sure that there are so many grown men who are former members of the Police Boys Team that you ran who would wish to express their thanks and add their condolences to your family. Hywel Wilcox

Trevor was and will remain a great man, a true legend. I met and chatted with him a few times and it was always pleasing to see him. He always had time for you. He will be missed. Deepest condolences to his family. from Nigel Pogson and family

Trevor sleep well; for no man could have done anymore for a club, a city, and its people. You will be sadly missed. A. Wilkinson

R I P Trevor. The game of Rugby League has lost one of its real characters. A true gentleman in every way who will be sadly missed.

Good night and thank you. A legend. S. Schofield

RIP Trevor. Words cannot begin to express what you have meant to your club and your adopted city. Your name will never die. Charles Odsal.

A true gentleman and stalwart for Rugby League. Never one to hark on the past other than in loving memory he was all for the modern game and moving on. Nothing was ever too much for Trevor who has provided many magical moments to treasure. Ray Gent

Goodbye Trevor. Many people cannot remember, or start to imagine, Rugby League in Bradford without you. You will be sorely missed. May your spirit live on at Odsal and in Rugby League for many more years. – L. Dickinson, Batley.

From welshbullman to the real Welsh Bullman. Rest in Peace Trevor. As we discussed on many an occasion the sun always shines on the righteous and the sun always shone on you. I am honoured to have known you Trevor and you will be truly missed by my family and myself. If I end up half the person you were, I know I will have achieved a great deal. Trevor Foster Living Legend gone but never forgotten

Trevor you will be truly missed and will go down in history as the greatest Bradford player ever. Brendan, Shipley

A true legend who will be remembered by all at Bradford for his work and dedication not just for the club but for the game of Rugby League. A Pickles (Bradford)

MAY HE REST IN PEACE AND BE WATCHING US FROM ABOVE. GOD BLESS HIM

Thanks for helping to keep “Northern” alive.

My daughter and I are new to Rugby. We have only been watching the Bulls for 7 years, but in that time we have seen and met Trevor, and to our minds he was a great man and friend. He will be sadly missed.

I never saw Trevor play but nobody could miss his huge contribution to Rugby League and Bradford in particular. I was lucky enough to meet him on several occasions and he was a charming and humble man. A true giant of our great game. We’ve lost a star. From a Hull FC supporter.

To a man who was Rugby League. God bless. J Bond

It was an honour to have known such a great person. Trevor will never be forgotten – Simon Collinson.

It was with great sadness that I learnt of Trevor Foster’s death on Saturday. What a huge inspiration he was to the game of Rugby League. I am sure Bradford would not be the great team it is today without him. He will be greatly missed.

Rest in Peace Trevor. You were a credit to our game. Michael Barrow, St Helens

Trevor was truly a great. A kind and sincere man, brilliant Rugby player, servant to the game and blessing to the city. The world could do with a few more Trevor Fosters. Stuart Royle

You will always be remembered as a true Bradford hero, you have done so much for the club and for your help to the great game of Rugby League. You will always be remembered by Bradford fans and your huge dedication to the game. Thanks for the hard work you have put in over the years. You will be missed. – Nicky Tidswell – Leeds

Rest in Peace Trevor, thanks for your tireless work for our game and the club. Be sure to know we’ll try and carry that on for you in years to come. A true Knight & legend. Nilsha Patel, Bradford

REST IN PEACE GREAT MAN – YOU WILL NEVER KNOW JUST HOW MUCH YOU WILL BE MISSED – THE BUNNS AND HANNAMS (BRADFORD)

You will be greatly missed, A true Rugby League legend in every sense, Thank You, RIP Becki, Bradford

Rest in peace Trevor, Because of you, we have a Bradford Northern / Bulls Rugby League team. I’ m glad you were able to share in all of the success. Thank you and God Bless. Grahame Wood. Bradford.

A great man who will fondly be remembered

I saw Trevor play many times in the 1950s and well remember his final game (against Hunslet). When the players entered the field (down those long steps), they hung back and let Trevor enter the pitch alone amidst great cheering. His modesty quickly showed when he immediately summoned his colleagues to join him. His modesty showed again, later in the game, when he was asked to take a conversion (Bradford had the game won by them), but, being the complete professional, he refused. At the end of the game his opposite number (Arthur Clues of Hunslet), carried him shoulder high. You’ve been a great player and servant to the club Trevor – thank you for all the wonderful memories.

Trevor Foster is one of “those” names that transcends generations and clubs. He played at least 25 years before I was born, but it’s a measure of his standing in and contribution to the game that he was such a well known name and figure to fans of all generations and clubs. RIP Trevor. James Carroll, Leeds fan

Farewell Trevor. You devoted your life to Bradford and never once forgot us so we will never forget you. And if it wasn’t for you there would be no Bradford Bulls today. Nathan Bell Bradford

A fond farewell to a true legend of Rugby League and Bradford.

Thanks for all the hard work you have done for Bradford, a true legend. Dale , Bradford

Thanks for everything Trevor. You give “Legend” a true meaning. The club and fans owe you everything. Always to be remembered – Never to be forgotten. Helen Gardner.

As a former sports editor of the T&A, media director of the RFL and a Bradford Northern and Bulls fan, may I please pass on my sincere condolences on learning of the sad passing of The Legend – Trevor Foster. Players and coaches come and go but Trevor is without doubt ‘Mr Bradford’ – a man I met many times and a man I had great respect for. To be still involved in the club he loved at his more senior age is wonderful tribute to possibly one the game’s greatest servants. Even though I now live in Australia, I still keep in touch with Odsal and still cheer for the Bulls. And I have been amazed that Trevor has still been a part of the organisation – instead of retiring to spend his hours with his wonderful family. Then again, I guess his family was the club, and what an example to the youth of today – and to the players of today in loyalty and unstinting and selfless service to the greatest game of all. My condolences to his family and friends. Rest in Peace, Trevor – We will never, ever forget you. Peter Rowe

I have just read the sad news of the passing of Trevor Foster. We used to see him at every game and have nothing but the highest regard and love for this wonderful man. His passing is a sad loss to the Bulls, supporters and Bradford as a whole. We would be very grateful if our deepest condolences could be passed to both the Club and Trevor’s family. Trevor Foster is and always will be a Legend never to be forgotten. Mrs Gill Johnson and the Johnson family as a whole.

I never saw Trevor play but he was an inspiration to all Rugby League fans in his performances for Bradford and Great Britain. Especially pleasing was the part he played in reforming Northern in 1964. I was lucky to meet Trevor and he was a true gentleman. Yours in League A Hull FC fan.

I am a long standing Bradford Northern / Bulls fan and don’t claim to have known Trevor Foster personally, but his presence around the City of Bradford and our Club was immense. He was devoted to Bradford and Wales in every way, and would always nod or speak to you even if he didn’t know you. I was shocked at his passing. He will be badly missed. John Pickles

R.I.P Trevor you are a great man!! We will never forget you.

It is with great sadness that we mourn the loss of Trevor Foster – a gentleman, a legend and a friend to all who met him. His shining example is one which will not be forgotten and will be an inspiration to us all in the future. God bless you Trevor. – Sam Grundy (BISA)

Not only a legend on the playing field, Trevor has made the City of Bradford a much better place to be for his work in the community. We have lost a real Welsh Wizard and his place in our lives can never be replaced. Trevor really was one in a million. Rest in peace Trevor.

He is an inspiration to us all, a true gentle giant of a man. I am honoured to have met him.

RIP Trevor,,,,, you were a true legend and will be sadly missed the Bulls would not be what they are today without your tireless work!! Glen Tillotson Bradford

A great loss to the game. With deepest sympathies from all at Gateshead Panthers RLFC

Without Trevor I would not have my club to support, and for this we can never thank him enough. A true legend, a great person, my thoughts are with all his friends and family. To Trevor – Rest in peace in the big Rugby pitch in the sky, safe in the knowledge that you helped create something truly special.

Great memories of a lovely man – Nigel Askham.

Thank you for being a role model to me and making me strive to be the best player I can be. Aaron Spreckley ( Wibsey Warriors )

Trevor you’re a true legend, although I wasn’t here when you played the great game. You have had a massive impact on the Bulls. Thank you.

You will be greatly missed but I hope you make as good as impression up there in heaven as you did down on earth. Rest in peace Trevor; knowing you are the legend. -Katie (Bulls fan)

Trevor Foster. No Words can describe the loss of such a great man. You are a true legend and will be missed throughout the world of Rugby League!!! You were an inspiration to us all. My sincere condolences to your family. We will never forget everything you have done for the club. Thank you so much for keeping the club alive, we would not be here if it wasn’t for you. Hope that wherever you are, you are resting in peace. Goodbye Trevor. You will never be forgotten! R.I.P Love Lyndsey Tillotson!

I remember asking for his autograph when I was a kid in the 70’s and he just said “What me?” as though surprised I would want it. After signing my book he shook my hand and thanked me. That sums him up I think, totally selfless. He made a young boy smile that day as I’m sure he did many thousands of others who saw him play or met him. A genuinely nice bloke who will be greatly missed. John, Bradford

An immense man we should all strive to emulate. The world is a better place for his having been part of it. Phil Oates – Bradford

God bless you Trevor! You were a great man, understandably named a legend. You were a respected man in not only the Bulls but Rugby League for many years and that respect grew and grew. You were a good man and the fans of Rugby League are glad that you had a big part in it. RIP Trevor Foster; you’ve touched the hearts of many

My Granddad adored Trevor and was often telling me about how well he played the game. I believe yesterday’s 80 points against Featherstone was especially for him.

A true gent and amazing story teller. Bradford has lost one of it’s best. I always thought that you would go on forever, and in our hearts, in Odsal and in Bradford you will. Sleep well Trevor you deserve it. – Vicky, Bradford

Without Trevor there would be no Bradford Bulls, Trevor is a true legend, and one of the reasons why Rugby League really is “The Greatest Game”

A true gentleman in every sense of the word. Peter Benson

Thank you Mr Foster for the contribution you have made to the whole community of Bradford, not just in the world of Rugby League, but as a Committed Catholic through your work with the various Catholic organisations and charities. You are a true example to us all. May you rest in peace. Christian Oldcorn, Bradford

To the family of Trevor Foster my deepest sympathy for your loss. I never, like nearly all current Bulls / Northern fans saw Trevor play. But my father told me many times what a great player he was. It was however Trevor the man that will be remembered the most. He was a School Governor at my son’s school and always had time to speak to anyone about anything not just Rugby. Humble to a fault and a shining kindness are just two of the virtues Trevor possessed. This he portrayed to the thousands of Bradfordians who didn’t really know him, but knew who he was, Mr Bradford Northern. Thank you Trevor for all you did for my city and my Rugby club. God Bless. From a Bradford Lad living down South.

Rest in peace Trevor, you will never be forgotten. Lisa, Cumbria

Thanks for everything you did for Bradford Northern and the Bulls I will never forget meeting you. R.I.P, Bethanie

Kirsty Beverley – Bradford Bulls Trevor Foster was the best a man could get. I didn’t no him hardly but he was known to many and loved by lots. The death of him has saddened many of us just like me and I am really very sorry to all of his family and I will never forget the one who was known as the legend and he still is today. I love you Foster and I always will. Rest in peace Trevor, love you lots, You are still the man and your soul will live on forever more!

RIP Trevor, Thank you for everything you did for Bradford. you are a truly great man, and we’ll all miss you. – Ricc.

The world has lost a wonderful man he was a pleasure to know. Rest in Peace. Valerie Beetham Bradford.

God bless Trevor. I never had the good fortune to see you play a game of Rugby League, but your reputation both on and off the pitch was legendary. The game of Rugby League will be proud to have had a player of your magnitude grace it. Michael Wheeler (London)

A true legend, you will be greatly missed. My condolences to Trevor’s family and friends at this sad time. RIP Trevor

My deepest sympathy to all Trevor’s family on the loss of such a giantly gentleman. He always had time to speak to anyone on a personal level and was a truly magnificent man. He was the Pope of Rugby League and will be very dearly missed. May you Rest in Peace. Carol Flowers and family

My deepest Sympathy to the family of Trevor. He was such a wonderful man with a giant heart. A real gentleman who made time to speak to everyone, I cannot imagine Rugby at Bradford without him.

Thank you Trevor for all your hard work. You were and always will be a true gentleman. God bless you Trevor. Tony Clough. Bailiff Bridge Brighouse.

Look out for Bruce up there Trevor. You can watch the games together from your VIP box in the sky. God bless you both and rest in peace. Helen, Spud & Rhys (Bradford)

Trevor u will always be in our hearts. You will be missed loads. Things at Odsal will not be the same. It will be strange not seeing u around the stadium or at events when Bulls arrange them. Rest in peace

You will always be a legend Trevor. Thank you for your times at Bradford. My thoughts go out to the family at this sad time. You were a great man. I will miss you. R.I.P. Kati Croft, Bradford.

Trevor helped my father set up a Rugby team at the Bradford Police Boys Club which produced players such as Brian Noble. His message was always that Rugby was to be enjoyed, which we did. I was proud to introduce my son to Trevor last year and be able to say I knew the great man. He will be missed by many people but his memory will never be lost by those that met him. My thoughts are with his family. Mike Aitchison Keighley Cougar Cubs under 12’s coach

Thank you Trevor for your loyalty and commitment to Bradford Northern / Bulls, without which our club may not be around for us all to enjoy today. You will never be forgotten and may you rest in peace. Clair, Cleckheaton

Rest in peace Trevor. Your smile will be sadly missed around Odsal.

You were a legend in your own right. You did Bradford proud. Rest in peace. Sarah, Pudsey.

R.I.P Trevor. A Rugby League legend, his love of the game shone through and I am sure he will be sadly missed by all his family and friends and many throughout RL. A loss for Rugby League and a loss for the Bradford club

A truly great loss to both city, club and life. He devoted his life to helping others and those others will miss him. Never would you meet a nicer man. A great debt is owed by us all – Kevin Field

R.I.P. Trevor. Many peoples lives were better from having known you. Gone but never forgotten. Glenn Thomas now in Spain

Trevor, a lovely man who will be so sadly missed. Condolences to all his family. Coral and Eric Toon Bradford Bulls Contingent 04 April 2005

Although I never actually got to see Trevor play, my Grandfather has told me many a great tale about the skill of this great man. I did have the pleasure to talk to Trevor on a fairly regular basis and doing this made me realise what a true legend Trevor Foster was. His association with Bradford will never be matched and he will certainly never be forgotten. I hope that somewhere, hopefully at Odsal, there will be a permanent tribute to this great man. A true legend, rest in absolute peace Trevor.

The loss of Trevor Foster will leave a hole at Odsal which will be impossible to fill. Trevor ended his playing career just as I started to watch the game and become a Bradford Northern fan: that his involvement and commitment to the club has been unbroken throughout these years is testimony in itself. A great sportsman. Geoff Halford. Grange-over-Sands, Cumbria

the world lost two greats today. I hope they’ve gone arm in arm to heaven.

Thank you Trevor, you’ll be missed by many. A great man in every way. Paul Butterworth, Bradford

The man was a sport legend and a perfect gentleman. Unlike sportsmen of today his rewards were simple. He lived a few doors away from me in Bradford for many years and unless you knew the game you would not have known what he did for a living. Loved and respected throughout the Rugby world (both codes)

“It was with great sadness that I heard about the death of Welsh Rugby League legend, Trevor Foster, who passed away today, Saturday 2 April 2005, aged 90. “I had the pleasure of dining with the great man at Cardiff City Hall last year when he was inducted into the Welsh Sports Hall of Fame. This was a memorable evening and I found him to be nothing less than a perfect gentleman and a teller of many great stories about the game. “My heart-felt condolences go out to his family and friends. He is a man who I’m sure will be missed by all who knew him.” Ian Golden – Chairman, Cardiff Demons RLFC and Wales Rugby League Press Officer.

I had the pleasure of meeting Trevor Foster on a few occasions. A gentleman and a true legend in every sense. Despite everything he achieved in sport and in life, he remained humble and genuinely thrilled, surprised and a touch embarrassed at any praise sent his way. He never quite thought he deserved any of it yet he deserved much more. A lesson in humility that many would do to follow. RIP Trevor, you’ll be missed more than you’d believe possible.

Trevor was a man who could hold a crowd like no other I’ve ever seen. He would speak with such conviction and such genuine love for Rugby and the city of Bradford and everyone would listen with rapt attention and by the end of it would be willing to crawl over broken glass if he asked them to. Not that he ever asked anyone to do something he wasn’t willing to do himself. Raising thousands for charity, rallying support for the club, doing anything and everything that the club needed to be done, he was such a hard working person right up to the end; years after a lesser man might have considered his work done. RIP Trevor. Odsal will never be the same place without you. A.

Our thoughts rest with Trevor’s family. Without him I would not have the chance to watch a great team play. Thank you, and I wish I could have seen him play.

Thanks for being the gentleman you were, and the true icon the lovers of this and other sport would do well to try and mimic. Our thoughts are with Trevor’s family. R and Family

Farewell Trevor, you will be sadly missed from a Bulls & League fan.

A sad loss to Rugby League and life in general. The word “legend” gets passed too easy in my eyes, but you was a true true great and will be sadly missed. Thanks for the memories.

God bless you and keep you Trevor. I never saw you play but my Dad did and I grew up with tales of your achievements. The Great Game will miss a Great Man. Neale Deacon

I knew Trevor through the Bulls and through his work in the church at St Cuthberts in Heaton. A lovely man and great ambassador.

Always present Always smiling Always time for young or old Always the gentleman Always remembered Always loved by fans young or old Always respected A breathe of fresh air around Odsal Will always be missed Sleep well.

Good night Trevor you will be sadly missed Sincere condolences to Trevor’s family. Colin, Rochdale

Trevor was a man who could hold a crowd like no other I’ve ever seen. He would speak with such conviction and such genuine love for Rugby and the city of Bradford and everyone would listen with rapt attention and by the end of it would be willing to crawl over broken glass if he asked them to. Not that he ever asked anyone to do something he wasn’t willing to do himself. Raising thousands for charity, rallying support for the club, doing anything and everything that the club needed to be done, he was such a hard working person right up to the end; years after a lesser man might have considered his work done. RIP Trevor. Odsal will never be the same place without you. A.

Trevor was my dad’s hero and the best ever second row forward on the planet–ever. He is now the best ever second row forward in heaven. He was a great friend of my uncle (Fred Sloane) who was also a tireless worker for the Northern. Trevor will be sadly missed, –thanks for the memories. Chris Allott

WITH DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO TREVOR’S FAMILY. HE WAS A WONDERFUL MAN AND WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN FOR ALL HIS GOOD WORK AT ODSAL AND IN BRADFORD.

A TRUE BRADFORD LEGEND AND RUGBY LEAGUE LEGEND! Without him there would be no Bradford Bulls and no great legacy of his charity work. Let his memory live on forever! Matt, Bradford, W. Yorks

Rest in peace Trevor. You and your work will never be forgotten and you will live on through the club forever.

Great loss to the game, condolences to Trevor’s Family our thoughts are with you. R.I.P Trevor you are a legend that will live on.- a Bulls fan

Trevor we will all miss you so much. He was such a kind person. Everybody loved him. R.I.P – Michelle, Bradford

Sincere condolences to the family of Trevor Foster. A great man who did so much for Rugby League, Bradford Northern / Bulls but more so the City of Bradford. A shining example to us all, God bless you Trevor, a true legend! Ian Watkinson

I did see Trevor play, but unfortunately I don’t remember as I was still in my pushchair at the time. The uncle who took me to Odsal every week in the 1950’s held him in the highest esteem. I only spoke to him the once when I bought him a cup of tea outside The Valley one chilly afternoon in London, but you would have thought he had known me for years, such was the personality of the man. There are not enough words to describe you Trevor or enough words to praise you for saving this great club of ours, so I will just say a simple ‘Thanks’ for everything you did for Bradford. Tony, a Bradfordian in Oldham

Sympathy and condolences to Trevor’s family. My late father, a lifelong Halifax supporter, often used to refer to him as “an example that many players would do well to follow”.

Rest in Peace Trevor. Thanks for the memories. Christine and Ian Waterworth and Family

To a warm, wonderful inspirational human being. A quiet accomplisher and a great role model for all ages. His legacy and presence will live on for all time.

A true legend. Although I was too young to see him play my dad & granddad filled me with stories of his splendour.

THANKS FOR KEEPING RUGBY IN BRADFORD ,A TRUE GENTLEMAN. ODSAL WILL MISS YOU – CRAIG (BRADFORD)

A true legend who will be greatly missed

Rest in peace Trevor. You were a true legend. What you did for the Northern / Bulls and the city of Bradford was fantastic. You will be sadly missed, you really were true gentleman – Kyle Rothery, Halifax

Thank you Trevor for all your hard work. We will remember you forever and I’ll never forget being a child thinking ‘WOW, Trevor Foster’ Your hard work will live on.

A true legend of the game and a true gentleman. It is doubtful if someone of his standing will be seen again. He will be sorely missed at the Bulls. Dave in Coalville Leicestershire

To our famous Uncle Trevor (my father’s brother) of whom we have always been so proud. Another Saint in Heaven – Wales Forever! TERESA & Family

Never a truer word spoken” Bradford till I die”. Thank you and God bless Trevor. Matthew family

R.I.P. TREVOR. YOU WILL BE MISSED BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN

I will miss Trevor, especially on Thursdays when the U 21’s were playing at Odsal. He was always easy to talk to and as has been said many times he was a modest, humble man who took great pride in the Club and the Community and what they had achieved over the years. He would always play down his part in the scheme of things. Such is the mark of his passing that he leaves not only an empty space, but also a warmth of memories of him. Rest In Peace Trevor. Dennis

A GREAT BRADFORDIAN. A GREAT WELSHMAN. A GREAT MAN. Rest in peace Trevor. KD

RIP Trevor, thank you for everything you did for our great club. Without you it wouldn’t be. You were, and always will be, a truly remarkable Rugby League Legend.

Rest In Peace Trevor Foster MBE. Forever in our hearts, never to be forgotten. All the best Gill J

Never heard anyone speak as passionately as Sir Trevor did about Rugby League or Bradford including the city itself. A true legend and surely is Mr Bradford Northern / Bulls. Without him we wouldn’t be here. R.I.P.

RIP Trevor, a true giant of the game.

Simply a giant in our game and a true gentleman. RIP Trevor, you have earned the respect.

R.I.P to a Gent and a great name of our great game.

Without Trevor there would be no professional Rugby League in Bradford. He was a great player and a great servant to the game of Rugby League but most of all he was a great man. “The word ‘legend’ is often used to describe sportsmen, sometimes unjustifiably, but in Trevor’s case it is an understatement.” RIP Trevor Foster

Trevor’s work for Bradford Northern / Bulls was incalculable. Without his contribution many of us would never had experienced RL in Bradford. A true gentleman whose life spanned 67 great years in RL. An example to us all. I’m so proud to have met you and could call you a friend. God bless you Trevor.

Rest in peace to the man from the Valleys

Very sad to hear of his passing. He was a tremendous asset to the game of Rugby League, a true gentleman whose passion for RL and life was there for all to see and he will be sadly missed.

Trevor Foster – what can you say? A wonderful giant of a man and a true legend not just in Rugby League but in all sport terms. All I can say is we’ll miss you but we’ll never forget you Trevor. Thank you for everything you did for Bradford – without you we wouldn’t be here today. RIP. – Ricc, Shipley

I never met him, but felt I knew him such was his presence in both Bradford and Rugby League. Not just a legend, THE legend. Rest in peace Trevor, you will never be forgotten.

Rest in peace Trevor; you were a true legend in Rugby League

YOU PUT A LOT IN FOR THE COMMUNITY AND FOR BRADFORD BULLS AND FOR THAT YOU WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED! YOU MADE RUGBY WHAT IT IS FOR THE YOUTH TEAMS AND I THANK YOU. I’M GLAD I ONCE MET YOU. NICK SPEIGHT (CLAYTON 16′S AND A BULLS FAN)

My enduring memory of Mr Foster is listening to him enthusiastically encourage the Bradford Northern Under 17’s on Parkside Road Rec in West Bowling on a Saturday afternoon when I went with my late father Ronnie. My heartfelt sympathies go to his family. We shall all miss such a great ambassador of our great game. Gillian Jurenko nee Betts, Leicester

Trevor, you were an inspiration to me and many others. Your hard work for Northern / Bulls and others will never be forgotten. R.I.P Big Man.

The mark of a man is the depth of empathy he has for his fellow humanity. By those sentiments Trevor Foster was a giant amongst men. His passing leaves a void in our lives, and the lives of his many friends. Goodbye Friend- may your God be with you. John and Ann Tudor

Sadly missed from the Marshall family. 3 generations of watching Northern and now the Bulls

A pleasure to have met you and to speak Rugby. R.I.P Trevor. My condolences to your family.

Losing the great Trevor Foster has been like losing a family member. God bless Trevor Foster Victoria Hellewell

Myself and my family were fortunate enough to have spoken with the great Sir Trevor over the years. He was a wonderful well spoken man who had time and patience for all his followers. I never saw him play but older members of the family spoke well of him. He will be sadly missed; not just by his immediate family but by his extended family throughout the world of Rugby League / Union, fund raising, and everywhere else he laid his heart. Good night God Bless. Dawn, Dean, Shorty, Mr Philip Barnett and Ms Julie Barnett xxx

A Great Man who will be badly missed by all. Mark Littlefair Knaresborough North Yorks

Every now and then someone appears who bypasses partisan club loyalties and is widely regarded as a Rugby League giant. Trevor was one of these men; a uniter not a divider. A true gentleman who will be sadly missed. Christian Richardson AKA Shaggoth

To a great sportsman and a gentleman. Odsal will not be the same without you. Rest in Peace Trevor. Love Tracey

I grew up in the 1960s with father telling me stories of this playing legend. I was privileged to meet him on Cup Final Day 2003 when he lead his beloved “Northern” out in Cardiff. Unbelievably courteous, humble and kindly man who clearly had immense pride in his club and adopted city. RIP Trevor. Martin Douglas, Lincs.

He was a great man with a heart of gold and the Bulls wouldn’t be here today without him, we owe him a lot, a friendly loving person and will be greatly greatly missed. rest in peace. Stacey & Stephen Heward

Trevor, words can not express how I feel at this sad time. We have been next door neighbours for many years now and I will sadly miss the laughs and jokes we had on a sunny day sat outside. I couldn’t have asked for a better neighbour or friend, R.I.P – Graham Cunningham and daughters Rachel and Joanne.

It was a privilege to have known you and to be able to call you a friend. We were delighted when you agreed to be the Honorary President of BISA; you were an inspiration to everyone that had the pleasure of meeting you and listening to you speak. We will miss your stories, your friendship and your love for the city of Bradford. Rest in Peace Trevor; you have gone on to a better place, you will be sadly missed but always in our hearts and never forgotten. Nick, Michaela & Aiden Greasley

A great ambassador for the game, your club and country. Truly inspirational. RIP. Sam N, Gloucester.

Never the likes of TREVOR will we see again – gone but never ever forgotten. Sandra Brian Hannan

I will not forget the enormous smile on Trevor’s face when I had the privilege of meeting him at Murrayfield after Bradford had beaten Leeds, or the sight of Trevor and my dad singing Welsh Rugby songs together on the same occasion. A truly wonderful man who will be deeply missed! I am so glad you were able to witness the Wales Grand Slam 2005, Liane Llewellyn x

Should have been SIR Trevor Foster – can not describe the loss to Bradford. You will always be in our hearts. Lets hope we win the title for you this year. You were a one in a lifetime R.I.P Craig & Suzanne Burnham

Thanks for everything Trevor. I just wish I could have seen you play. Sarah ( Oldham )

Rest in peace Trevor. A lovely and kind gentleman who will be sadly missed by everyone. With love from Jayne, Craig & Kayleigh Leadbeater

I only met Trevor Foster on one occasion, but I remember very well his unfailing patience and courtesy to me as I rambled on about the Bulls in a very inexpert way. You have a perfect seat at all the matches now. Rest in peace. Rita Gilmore

I met Trevor on several occasions;. he was a special man who lived not only for his beloved Bradford Northern but Rugby League in general. A giant of a man who will be sadly missed by all those who came in contact with him. Phillip Hall

GOODBYE Trevor! U were a Great Pleasure to the Bulls!! Rest in Peace XxXxXxX

As somebody who started to watch Bradford Northern in 1953 I feel privileged to have seen Trevor play, even if it was towards the end of his career. Over the years since I have been able to have conversations with him on many subjects, though mainly on Rugby and Bradford Northern. I always found him approachable and the perfect gentleman, with never a bad word for anybody. A number of my friends later came into Rugby through the Police Boys Club and they always spoke highly of his commitment to the club. My last words with him were at the Leeds game where he was his usual enthusiastic self. I was looking forward to getting his book and getting it signed later this month sadly I will still be getting the book but will have to forgo getting it signed. My condolences go out to his family at this sad time, it must be of great comfort to them to know the high esteem he was held in by thousands of people. Trevor Charnock

R.I.P Trevor. Tony Lambert

Good Bye Trevor! U will never be forgotten at Odsal! Rest in Peace! Ur a true legend!! BYE xxxxxxxxxxXXXXXXx

Thank you Trevor, always Mr Bradford Bulls / Northern and a nice man. Rest in peace. Alan Layte. Leeds.

Thank you Trevor for all you have done for our club, our sport and Bradford . You deserve a lasting memorial. All the fans will miss you. R I P Phill Garland

RIP Trevor, you are a true gent, and will be forever in Bradford’s thoughts.

For all the hours of pleasure I’ve had watching Bradford Northern and Bradford Bulls – thank you Trevor. RIP A great, great man.

This is what I posted on Saturday when I heard the sad news: “I got in at lunchtime to find my wife in tears…told me the terribly sad news. Then that made two of us. We’d both spoken quite a bit with Trevor, and been with or seen the great man (and that’s not a description I use lightly – he was) at meetings and sometimes at matches, where to see his incredible gift for lifting and motivating and enthusing a crowd was pleasure and an honour to behold. For those who never saw and heard Trevor’s oratory at first hand…you missed a master. I took Trevor home from meetings sometimes. I was very conscious (and a little in awe) of the fact that I was driving one of the greatest men in the city and in the game. Anyone who knew Trevor will surely be deeply saddened by this loss. I certainly am. I knew him only a little bit, and I wish I had known him longer and better. He was one of the most inspirational people I have ever had the privilege to meet. One abiding memory of Trevor: the look of pride on his face as he led the team out – marching boldly, upright and confident – at Cardiff. He should have been equally proud – and deservedly so – of all the other achievements of the club he was instrumental in saving. But, modest man that he was, I bet he never saw in himself the greatness all the rest of us saw. God bless you Trevor…you were one of those people who put far more into this world than you ever took out. Safe journey, and rest in peace. Deepest sympathies to Trevor’s family. ” Now the reality has sunk in, all I can add is thank you Trevor for allowing me to know you. After full reflection, I can truthfully say you were probably the finest man I have ever known. The world is diminished by your passing. God bless you, Trevor.

Trevor Foster represented a true Rugby League gentleman. A legend in the truest sense of the word. He will be sadly missed not only the Rugby League community but by the city of Bradford as a whole. Rest in peace Trevor.

RIP Trevor. Thanks for all you did for us!!! From all at www.shontayne.com

The great man was spotted by a group of Bradford supporters whilst being dropped off by coach outside Twickenham. They immediately ran over, dropped onto their knees and saluted him. What a wonderful and extraordinary gesture. A true mark of respect. God Bless.

Trevor gave so much to Bradford Northern / Bulls, and although I am too young to have ever seen him play, my granddad told me great stories about him. Rest in Peace. Rachael

There is a saying the light that shines twice as bright shines half as long. This was not been the case with Trevor – he shone bright until the end

Rest in Peace Trevor. Your spirit will always be with us on match days. You will never be forgotten. Enjoy life and Rugby on the other side.

My sincere condolences to all of Trevor’s family. In this age of five minute legends here was a colossus of the game. Unlike many latter day heroes he moved the game forward at all levels. The people of Bradford (and all RL supporters) owe him more than we’ll ever know. Peter – Bradford

One of the few true legends of sport

Goodbye Trevor. Thank you for everything. Mark Plant

Everybody that I know knew Trevor and every time I saw him I said hi. I’m really sorry that he died and my Nan was really upset when we had a minute silence at Featherstone.

Rest in peace, Trevor. I feel proud to have known you. John Hill (ex Police Boys)

Queensbury School staff and students are all thankful for all the good things you did for the us all. We also had a special assembly on Monday to talk about him and what he has done for the community and the Bulls. from Nick Speight and Dane Bairstow R.I.P

Trevor was a great friend of my Dad (Fred Sloane) together and with others they fought for better facilities at Odsal. It is a great shame that neither of them will see their dreams come true. Thank you for being so kind when my Dad was ill. Christine Oates and Family.

Trevor was my hero in the late 40s and he was later to become a very good friend especially when my husband Fred was poorly. He visited him in hospital even though he had sadness of his own. He was a real gentleman. Barbara Sloane.

Rest in peace Trevor – a true Rugby legend you will still remain a giant whereever you have moved on to. Goodnight Trevor; you will be greatly missed.

Bradford Bulls are deeply in debt to you as they would not be playing now if it wasn’t for you. I never saw you play but wouldn’t be able to see the Bulls play now if it wasn’t for you. Its a sad loss to Rugby League and Bradford RIP

A sad loss – without doubt Bradford’s greatest ever player, and a true ambassador for the sport. We will all miss you. Rest in peace. Tony Watson, Pudsey

R.I.P. Trevor Foster. Was an honour to know and meet you. I hope that now you’re in heaven you can show them how to play a decent sport and maybe arrange for some decent weather at Odsal occasionally?

My thoughts are with your family.

Great memories of a true gentleman and a true giant of Rugby. Will be sadly missed. The City of Bradford and the world of sport will be the poorer with the loss of this ambassador for all that is good in our game. Ruth and Tony Duff

God Bless you Trevor for all the wonderful work you did selflessly. Nothing could be more fitting for such a gentleman as yourself that you passed away the same day as Pope John Paul 2.

RIP Trevor, an ideal way to remember you would be to have one of the new stands named after you once the redeveloped Odsal is finished. Ian Patchett & the rest of Patchett family.

Rest in peace Trevor. A true gentleman who will never be forgotten- Dave Bennett, Dewsbury Moor ARLFC

A true Bradford Northern hero and legend, served Bradford well-Ben Yates

I would like to take this opportunity to offer sincere condolences to Trevor’s friends and family at this time. I was honoured to meet and speak with this great man a few years ago and he is a man for whom I have a lot of admiration for both as a player and ambassador for the great game and for his beloved Bradford Bulls for whom I am a avid supporter. You will not be forgotten. Adam Simpson.

Thinking of your family Trevor at this sad time. Many thanks for all the years of fantastic Rugby RIP from Donna and Ken (Bradford)

What more can be said – the game of Rugby League will not be the same without such an Ambassador. What a privilege to have such a person associated with Bradford for such a long time – he will be sadly missed. The Lewis Family

Words can’t say what a great man Trevor was to Bradford Northern & now of course the Bulls. If not for his hard work & endeavour. In the early 1960s when the Northern went bust he organised meetings all over Bradford & he went round all the local schools drumming up interest. So I can say from all the Bradford Rugby fans he will be sadly missed. God bless from a true admirer. Yours Truly Kevin Simpson

This man had Bradford written through him like Blackpool in a stick of rock. Not talked about as much as his sporting achievements, I remember his staunch work for Bradford Police Club. He will be very sadly missed. Ken Marshall

Trevor was one of the nicest people that you could ever wish to meet. He will be sorely missed at St Cuthbert’s Church, Odsal, and Bradford as a whole. RIP

I didn’t know Mr Foster personally but he was always there to share the highs and lows with you around the ground and City and I’m sure we’ll still catch glimpses of him out of the corner of our eyes. My condolences to his family and many friends. K. Smith, Bradford.

I am not old enough to have seen Trevor Foster play but whenever I look through the history of the game I see his name. A true Rugby League legend and not only a great loss to Bradford but to the game. He will be sorely missed.

Rest in peace Trevor – the greatest game has lost its greatest ambassador, always in our hearts. Pete, Ellie, Daniel and Louis Marlow, Halifax

I knew him not only as the school boardman but also as a great Rugby player, who played for the staff against the first fifteen at Edmund Campion. It shows the mark of the man when the only thing I can remember about the game was him congratulating me on my tackle on him. In truth he could have squatted me like a fly. In truth if anyone deserves the epithet GENTLEMAN it’s him. My condolences to his family. John Lawler

Thanks for all that you have done at the club. You will be missed by everyone young and old. You have also been an inspiration to young players such as myself. Thank you

Whilst his passing is a great sadness the people of Bradford, Bulls fans and everyone associated with ‘The Great Sport of Rugby League’ will carry on the great work this wonderful person has dedicated his life to. A great servant to a great city. The greatest Bradfordian ever to draw breath.

A LEGEND! What more can be said about a man that did so much for the sport! My deepest sympathy to his family, he’ll will be remembered forever not just at Odsal but in the game of Rugby League! R.I.P Trevor Gareth Chapman (Bulls Fan)

A truly great man. My name’s John Jackson from East Bowling Bradford. I have followed Bradford for 15 years; I am 27 now. I didn’t see Trevor Foster’s playing career but I saw enough of him through what my dad and granddad told me about his playing years. A servant to Bradford and Bradford Rugby League club for over sixty years speaks for itself, never missing a game. A true gentleman when I had the pleasure of saying hello when I saw him around Odsal. People always spoke very highly of Trevor, but the club will get stronger. I’ve no doubt Trevor would want us to look forward, and take our great club to even greater heights. My family and I send our best wishes to Trevor’s family, and also to the Bulls. Rugby League has lost a gentleman and a sporting legend, and Bradford its adopted son. We will miss you, but never forget you. COME ON YOU BULLS NORTHERN!!!! NORTHERN!!! NORTHERN!!! L E G E N D

RIP Trevor. You will always be remembered for your charm, wit and warmth and commitment in everything you did in life, not only in the world of Rugby League but in the support of your fellow human beings. Knowing you was a pleasure, being coached by you some thirty years ago was an inspiration, you still remembered me and even more so my name when we met recently out of all those that you have been associated with in this great game of ours. The world as lost a giant of a gentleman our thought are with your family God bless you Trevor. Bulls / Northern Exile

Trevor, you are and will always be Mr Bradford Northern / Bulls. I would have no team to support if it wasn’t for you’re hard work and effort that you have put into the club you and I love so dearly. Rest in peace Trevor, you will never be forgotten. God bless. xx Danny Tetley xx

Mr Foster – I know that the Catholic Church played a vital part in your life. It is incredible that God has taken you into his home on the same day as the Pope. You are a real saint whose spirit will remain with us for ever. RIP.

The History of Rugby League is scattered with great men, on the 2nd April the great game lost a great man. Recently I opened a new section in my website asking supporters from over the world to nominate their all time greatest clubman for their respective clubs. I received five replies from Bradford club supporters and all mentioned only one name, Trevor Foster MBE. Rest in Peace Trevor Foster. My condolences to his family and his Bradford Bulls Family. Jeff Quigley aka Quigs, Era of the Biff RL website, Australia.

I was privileged to meet and play alongside Mr Trevor Foster for Bradford Northern in 1956. Simply being in Mr Trevor Foster’s presence was a pleasure, a privilege and a complete honour. Mr Trevor Foster was the ultimate professional in every endeavour whilst always being a wonderful human being. Bius Condius. Bryan Todd, Australia.

It was with great sadness that I heard of Trevor’s passing away. Although I only met him a handful of times either at Odsal or in Bradford city centre he always had time to say hello and talk about Rugby. He will be sadly missed. Kevin Hudson

We will really miss Trevor as he was a great Rugby player and a kind person. My condolences go out to his family as they have lost a great person. xxx

My late father pointed Trevor out to me in about 1969 at an away game and told me to go get his autograph .I asked dad who he was and he explained one of the best players ever to play for Northern. When I approached Trevor he was genuinely surprised that anybody remembered him, but he was gentleman enough to spend time talking to me. Thank you Trevor, rest in peace .

Farewell to a true legend. You will be sadly missed around the club and the town Trevor. It was always a pleasure to see you around ,one of the true gents REST IN PEACE. Paul Hartley

I first went to see Bradford Northern in the late 40s,and I can remember being in the New Stand, sometimes on my dad’s shoulders. I particularly remember a game ( I think against Dewsbury) when Trevor Foster scored six tries- amazing for a forward. I was in St George’s Hall and paid my hard earned £3 in coins (almost a weeks wages for me then) when the club re-formed in 1964, thanks to Trevor’s’ perseverance. I was thrilled to meet and share his delight at Murrayfield when the Bulls won the Challenge Cup against Leeds. He is therefore an ever present for me in my support of Bradford Northern / Bulls and I hope his immeasurable contributions to the club and the City of Bradford in so many ways will be honoured as Odsal is further developed. Fond memories from Martin Preston also on behalf of my late father to whom he was a hero.

Trevor was indeed the man behind Bradford not only on but off the field and he will be sadly missed.

My Sincere Condolences to Trevor’s Family and Friends, I’m sure he will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Rest in peace to a Rugby / Bradford legend (Katie, Bulls fan)

Trevor touched so many lives in so many different ways. He’ll be sadly missed by all who knew him. His inspiration and commitment ensured that now and in the future that RL can be enjoyed by all in Bradford. The Trevor Foster Stadium at Odsal would be a fitting and lasting memorial to his memory. A reborn Northern fan.

R.I.P TREVOR YOU ARE STILL A LEGEND!!! I THINK YOU DESERVE A STATUE AT ODSAL FOR ALL THE HARD WORK YOU HAVE DONE. JONNI & JOSH (BULLS FANS)

The Welsh side of the Foster’s family will always remember a very gentle and wonderful Uncle and much loved Brother of the late Lesley, Madeline, Teddy, Frieda and Eileen. We, his Nieces and Nephews, have been left with many many fabulous memories and will miss all his letters, as he always kept us up-to-date with his life “up North”. We were all so proud of him and his great achievements. Our hearts are very sad. Prayers and our love go out to Simon, Sarah, Bridget and their families at this sad time. “Wales forever!!”.

A great man and good friend who will be sadly missed. Paul Bates

WILL BE MISSED GREATLY BY HIS CLUB

Without a doubt one of the greats both as a player and a person. I will remember the chats I had with Trevor in Bradford city centre whilst he was collecting money for charity. A true legend who will be sadly missed. Danny Hill

Rarely are people irreplaceable in Rugby League, unless of course you are named Trevor Foster. A true gentleman who had a kind word and a smile for anyone who spoke to him. I feel privileged to have known this giant of a human being in every sense of the word. A true loss to the game of League, sport and Great Britain. Rest in Peace Trevor. Simon Fox (Bulls Marketing 1997-2000)

Rest in peace Trevor. The Rugby League world has lost a true legend. Dean Holdsworth ex Queensbury now Australia

As a young supporter in the sixties I was brought up on tales of the great side of Ward, Batten, Davies, Whitcombe etc. But for my dad nobody was greater than Trevor Foster; not just for his skill on the Rugby field but for his passion, commitment and perseverance off the field helping to save the club from extinction. I’ve been lucky enough to meet the great man on a few occasions, not just at Odsal but at church and in the city of Bradford – he truly was a legend of the game but more importantly he was a “marvellous” human being. Bradford will never quite be the same but his spirit will always live on. Sincere condolences to his family. RIP Trevor

TREVOR WAS AN INSPIRATION TO THE BULLS AND MANY OTHERS. IF YOU COULD GIVE A SINGLE PENNY TO RUGBY LEAGUE AS A TRIBUTE TO HIM, THEY WOULD MAKE MILLIONS……..SOPHIE YATES AGE 9

To a most respected gentlemen and legend of Bradford and Wales whose dedication to Rugby kept Rugby alive in Bradford. To all his family everywhere our sympathy goes to them RIP Trevor. A fitting memorial Trevor would be to rename the stadium The Trevor Foster Stadium. J Byron

God Bless Trevor. Thanks for everything you did for Bradford Northern and indeed the City of Bradford. You were indeed a true gentleman who cared passionately not only about Rugby but about those less fortunate than himself. You will always be remembered especially on match days Rest in Peace, Trevor

There’s only one Trevor Foster! A true inspiration and role model for today’s players and fans. He may be gone but never should he be forgotten.

Would like to pass on our condolences to Trevor’s family “up North” from his family “down South” from South Wales. Trevor’s brother Ted was my grandfather. From reading the messages of condolence it seems he was extremely well respected and admired by the people of Bradford, the Rugby League world and anyone who knew him. Very proud of his achievements. God bless him

I never saw him play but had the pleasure of seeing him around Odsal on a number of occasions and he truly was a gentleman.

Rest in Peace Trevor. So typical of the great man that you continue to help others not so fortunate by contributing money from the sale of your autobiography to charities . Tony ( Proud Bradfordian )

Good night Trevor, the angels have come for you now!! A Legend never to be forgotten!! Love to you an your family xxxxx Gemma Louise

A great loss to Rugby, a great gain for God. Grant to him, O Lord eternal rest and let the perpetual light shine upon him may he rest in peace.

Trevor was not a man I had the pleasure to meet on many occasions; however on the few times I was lucky enough to be in his company or to bump into him in town, he would go out of his way to talk and share his views or experiences. A true gentlemen, to whom all Bulls / Northern fans owe so much to for his immeasurable efforts for our great club. Trevor, thank you. Steve Ward, Drighlington.

A TRUE RUGBY LEGEND, REST IN PEACE TREVOR.

My thoughts and condolences are extended to his family and the people of Bradford at this very sad time. Gone but never forgotten. Garry Short.

There will be may a hard man from this great game who will shed a honest tear, because you were an inspiration to all those you came into contact with in the game of Rugby League. The Trevor Foster Stadium is a true reflection on this great gentleman RIP Trevor

We assure Trevor’s family of our love and prayers here at St. Chad’s, Toller Lane.

We are all immensely proud of this lovely man.

May you play Rugby to you hearts content in your new life in heaven. You will be even greater up there. Goodnight God Bless Ann M

God Bless you Trevor. I was lucky enough to meet the legend that you were. You are an inspiration and a true ambassador to Bradford as a city and in particular Northern / Bulls. Sleep well Sir Trevor

The time spent working at the Bulls were some of the best years of my life.

I am a teacher in Bradford and have made sure that my pupils fully appreciate the loss of this Great Man. Nobody can measure the contribution he made to the City of Bradford but now that he has left us we must honour his memory and learn from the examples he set us. If we could all live our lives like Trevor, Bradford would be a better place. Stuart Firth Bradford

Who could ask for a greater ambassador for the club and sport! Ian Schofield

What a sad loss this is. My dad always told me stories of how great a player he was. I was made to watch old tapes and listened to endless stories of tries he’d scored and games he played. Dad always showed my articles, he was my dad’s hero. I was lucky to meet Trevor back in 2000, It always put a smile on my face to see him at every game. He was one of the kindest people I have ever met, and even though I am just 17 he has made a huge impact in my life, he has inspired me. You told me not to give in, when I was in doubt, and I never got to Thank you. To my Uncle Trevor, rest in peace… I will miss you so much. But to the City of Bradford, you’ll remain a hero as your name lives on so will your stories. Michaela xxx

Dear Mr Simon Foster and family, how sad I was to hear of the passing of your father Trevor. He truly was one of Bradford Northern’s greats. Having met your father on many occasions during the sixties and seventies, I have nothing but fond memories. As I watch the televised matches from Odsal and see all the people enjoying their Rugby, especially the younger element, I can not help but think they owe a lot to a few. In the dark times of the early sixties had it not been for people like your father and indeed my father, Odsal may have been developed into something other than the great Rugby arena it is today. I last met your father at Murrayfield where we chatted for some time on days gone. It was obvious that he had not lost any of the passion for the game either on or off the field, which could clearly be seen in his broad smile. He even arranged for my son to be photographed with the Challenge cup, again bringing joy to a youngster which he seemed to able to do with ease. Trevor will be sadly missed at Odsal but not forgotten. I’ll bet he’s having a chat with my father right now! Charles Phillips and family, Newquay, Cornwall. (son of Joe Phillips Founder Chairman)

You were a true Bull through and through and will be remembered at Odsal forever. R.I.P AND KEEP ON RUNNING WITH THE BULLS Iain Wakefield, Greengates, Bradford

Although I never met Trevor his commitment and love for the club shone out for over 50 years. To me he was Mr Bradford Northern. A very special man!!

Trevor played or Bradford Northern when I began watching the game. He was a gentle giant on and off the field, a real gentleman. He will be remembered for his work in Bradford as well as for the game of Rugby League. To say he was a legend is so true. He will be missed sorely by the Bulls Club and also the general supporters as myself as he always had a smile and a nice word. I will never ever forget him. Rest in Peace Trevor. Goodbye to a wonderful man. A THORLEY BRADFORD

It was a honour you adopted Bradford as you home. Thank you for your commitment and hard work over the years without it we wouldn’t have our beloved club. rest in peace. all our love Paula and Claire, Bradford. xxx

Remembered with affection and respect by all Rugby fans and Bradfordians. Condolences to his family and friends. A. Metcalf

I never saw Trevor play, but my Grandma & Granddad who incidentally ran the Bar in the 1950’s used to tell us tales from “way back then”.

Good Night and God Bless the Tyman & Robertshaw family xx

Sincere condolences to Trevor’s family and friends, a sad loss to the club and the city, but thank you Trevor for the decades of selfless contributions on many levels to the population of Bradford. Russ Tromans, currently in Texas.

My lasting memory of Trevor Foster was when my Uncle took me in 1976 to my first Northern game. We would often bump into Trevor at Odsal and we were always greeted with a smile and a cheery hello. I will miss you Trevor as I miss my dear Uncle.

I often spoke with Trevor at the matches and he was a lovely person, his family must have been very proud of him and rightly so. Bradford was a lucky city the day Trevor adopted us. Lets hope we can have the Trevor Foster Stadium up and running in accordance with his wishes as soon as possible. Angie

What else can u use to describe the man other than legend? and yet that doesn’t fully describe the man. Yes I am too young to have seen him play, but I’ve done detailed research into what a character he was. It was an education and enjoyed every minute of learning about this fascinating legend. As a Bulls supporter I will always remember you as the foundations of the club in which I hold so dear to my heart. From Matthew Birkett, Keighley

R.I.P Trevor, what a quality guy. A great ambassador of the sport we all love. BigT Wakefield

If the world had more people like Trevor it would be a better place to live.

A Sad Loss To The Bulls And The City Of Bradford Thanks For Your Hard Work Over The Years Shame I’m Too Young To Remember You As A Player Chris-Castleford

Just wanted to say thank you for setting an example to us all. Bradford fans will remember you for generations to come. I hope the club will honour you in a worthy way. Dave Knowles – Worcester

A true gentleman a nice person need I say more

I met Trevor Foster before and he was a brilliant man and I will dearly miss him.

I’m deeply saddened to learn of Trevor’s passing: my sincere condolences to his family. He was a true gentleman in everything he did, with a huge heart. Neil Tunnicliffe

Thank you for your enthusiasm – enjoy your rest Trevor.

Only met Trevor the once at an RLSA function. He was a perfect gentleman, willing to spend time with anyone he met who wanted to talk about the Greatest Game John S

Rest in Peace Trevor. A Great man and an inspiration to all – Tom Barrett, Manchester

My heart goes out to Trevor’s friends and family. A truly great man who I had the pleasure of meeting once and will remember for ever. What a better place the world would be if more people like Trevor existed. RIP Trevor.

Many thanks for all the efforts of a truly gracious man towards Rugby in its broadest sense. Chris Pollard, Crosshills, N. Yorks.

I am so glad that Trevor Foster has been given the respect in death that he gained in life. He was a true gentleman in every respect of the word. We as Bradford Bulls Fans would not be able to support the team we love if it hadn’t been for Trevor’s sacrifices over the years. We owe him so much. To be described as a Gentleman and a Legend is an understatement. God’s gain is our loss, and what a loss it is too. Rest in Peace Trevor, you will be sadly missed by us all. Marie Varley, Bradford.

You will be sadly missed. rest in peace Trevor.

R.I.P Trevor. You were a legend

Rest in peace Trevor. A great man who was fully for the development of Rugby League and we thank him greatly for this. He will never be forgotten! W.R.Y.A.R.L Management and clubs.

Trevor Foster was a great man – he was a great Bulls player when he played I would like to say sorry to his family for their loss

I was one of the lucky ones, thanks to my late elder brother Ernest I saw Trevor Foster play lots of times for Northern. REST IN PEACE Bob Slater (Geneva)

RIP Trevor you will always be remembered

Trevor you made Bradford the team it is I thank you for everything you have done for the club and the game. Thank -You. Love and God Bless my Friend

Wot a legend Trevor Foster was. He will be sadly missed by many. My deepest condolences go to Trevor’s family.

Rest in peace Trevor a true gentleman and legend we will miss you Linda and Martyn

Never met you, but will still miss a true Rugby Legend.

I met Trevor back in 1999 at A Bradford Bulls dinner where I was invited to attend as a guest after winning man of steel. Trevor and I were seated next to each other and we had a fair old chat where I found out a lot about him and what he had achieved and more importantly how much love he had for the game and his beloved Bradford Bulls. I would continue to spot him when ever I played Bradford and would say hello to him. He was a bit of a media star I was forever seeing in the papers or on TV and he was always smiling, I guess because Bradford were always winning and the English game was getting stronger all the time. He was a legend in the game and I am sure he has touched many people hearts in some way in his time in this world. R.I.P Trevor Adrian Vowles

Rest in peace Trevor you was a great Bradford Bulls player from Darren Naylor (Bradford Bulls supporter)

How sad, Trevor was a legend and an ever present at Odsal games. He was a lovely man who always had time for a word with fans.

I knew Trevor since I was 13 years old and he helped to make me the man I am today. One thing I have noticed is that everybody says they are a great friend of Trevor’s, that is because that is how he made you feel, when he talked with you, you were the most important person there. I went to Trevor’s funeral last Friday and although like everybody else I hate funerals, it was a privilege to be there seeing so many people celebrating Trevor’s life and the atmosphere was just what Trevor deserved. At the end of the proceedings somebody shouted “Well played Trevor”, well done to that man he said what everybody was thinking. Trevor you were the greatest. Joe Pitts

I too came to Bradford from Newport, have lived here for 15 years now and still support both Bradford Bulls and Newport Rugby. Trevor gave such great service to both his original and adopted homes and to both codes of the sport. I’m sure he will be remembered with love and great respect in both cities.

I would have loved to have seen Trevor Foster play, but as a player he was not of my era. Not only was he a great player in his day, but he saved Bradford Northern from extinction, for which we can be truly grateful. He was a great man and a humble man who did so much for the city of Bradford. He will be sorely missed and will forever be remembered. A true legend.

We’ll never forget you Trev!!!

What a sad loss, not only to the team but also to the city, and to Wales. He will be missed greatly. Odsal will not be the same and will feel very empty without him, and I hope he will be looking down on us to cheer us on! Rest in peace Trevor! from Marian and Phillip (Holland) Bottomley. Maria and Kelli Fish (Cleckheaton)

A pure legend sadly missed. Bradford Bulls fan

He did well for us at Odsal our thoughts are with his family

God bless TREVOR you were a great man

Rest in Peace Trevor you were a true legend and will be greatly missed. Thank you for all the hard work you put into Bradford both the Rugby team and the city.

A nice man, credit to the sport Tony and Callum

A truly remarkable man who will be sadly missed by us all. Darrel, Frances and Jordan Shelford

I never met Trevor however I did hear him speak on radio and TV. He was a credit to the game and I was captivated by his wonderful tales of playing for his clubs as well as great Britain. Thank you Trevor.

A true legend both on and off the Rugby pitch, A great sadness to all his family and friends. RIP Trevor Foster Scott Mansfield, Leeds

R.I.P. to a true gent. Simon, Bradford

Now in the hands of our father, God Bless Trevor. RIP.

A great man, who lived a great life, the place seems much emptier without you, I can still see your beaming face when we won the cup in Cardiff. Mark

RIP Trevor Foster M.B.E – from a Huddersfield Giants supporter.

A great ambassador for Bradford Bulls and the sport as a whole. He will be sadly missed by both. A great player and a great man. -Chris Needham, Manchester

A true gentleman, You will be sorely missed. Good players will come and go but legends live forever. You are for me the greatest legend and I will always be thankful that you never gave up on the city of Bradford.

I’ve been robbed! I am a late follower of Rugby League and have never had the opportunity to speak to the great man himself. I do remember one time in Cardiff outside a hotel after the CC Final and a group of people talking to Trevor and taking their pictures with him. He was so proud and yet so humble, but had time for anyone. As I say I, no we, have been robbed! Rest in peace Trevor. Stuart Kent

I hope Trevor has gone to abetter place

I nearly cried at Trevor’s memorial yesterday at the Bulls we will really miss you you were a great Rugby player rest in peace Shannon palmer Bradford

Nobody can say that there was ever a better man than you, hearing you speak at the Bulls yesterday, and even remembering it now brings a tear to my eye. You are Bradford and always will be. God rest in piece. LH.

Watching northern when I first came to Bradford, I knew the importance of what you had done as this was in the 70s. I followed them on and off for years and then once my daughter was born and got interested in Rugby I was never allowed to miss a game and she has even got my wife going! Without you though, there would be no Bradford for us to support and you have inspired my daughter to go into Rugby League and want to be involved in the game itself, for that I cannot thank you enough. You will be greatly missed.

Thank you for everything you did for Bradford in your time – the word legend is over used but is an understatement for Trevor. After the 2003 Challenge cup final in Cardiff I, along with my dad and friends, bumped into Trevor outside the Angel Hotel and shook his hand – a fabulous day and proud to have seen the great man on this special day for all us Bulls fans. Bulls fan Iain Day, Harrogate.

A personable and loyal servant to Bradford Northern who should be remembered not only for his playing but for keeping a Rugby League team at Odsal, Bradford when the odds were very much down Catherine Smith (daughter of Joe Phillips, former Chairman of Bradford Northern)

Trevor very kindly attended my late father’s 75th Birthday Party in the Old Vice Presidents’ Lounge at Odsal in July 1999. He made my father’s night. He stayed and chatted with everyone for a long time and brought many personal items of memorabilia with him. My father had watched him play and always respected him greatly. He was a great player, a great citizen of his adopted City, and a great servant to Bradford Northern, the Bulls and Rugby League. He will be sadly missed. I saw Trevor outside the BRI on Thursday the 30 March, I didn’t realise that this was the last time I would see him, but true to his many charitable acts and good works he was visiting an old friend Charlie Ebbage. Rest well Trevor. Leah Corboz 20.4.05

Dear Trevor. Thank You for playing for the Bradford Bulls, We are going to miss a true legend. Even though I am 16 I did not know you that much I have heard you were a really good player and the Bulls were really glad to have you. Once you play for the Bulls you are a Bull for life. We will miss you Trevor. Love Victoria Partridge

Diolch yn fawr Trevor =)

Trevor Foster will be sincerely missed. A great man, player and ambassadors for the game. Long may his memory live on

God bless you, dearest Trevor. I remember you with much love and the warmest of hearts, as the greatest, most humble and loyal of gentlemen. May your onward journey towards Peace and Light be blessed in eternity. Thank you for all that you did for me, and all that you taught me. Rest in Peace. Chris.
