Issue City move training to Leeds, again

As told by Michael Wood

At long last Bradford City have new training facilities after Mark Lawn detailed the Bantams proposed new base in Weetwood, North Leeds with the chairman proudly delivering on his promise to Peter Taylor.

Taylor had stated the need for better training pitches for the Bantams as one of his demands were he to stay at City beyond the end of the season and Lawn has begun to deliver on the shopping list the manager wants taking a swipe at Bradford Council’s inability to provide facilities in the team’s home City.

The place is top class, a very good facility and a lot better than what we’ve got and certainly up to Championship standard. It would have been very nice if Bradford Council had done something, but if they don’t offer anything then we have to go where we can go.

A BBC report suggests the move to Leeds “could attract some controversy” probably without reference to the location of the current training facilities.
