Pre-season takes shape

While Bradford City has been keen to offer us a blow-by-blow account of the exciting pitch renovation, the club has yet to reveal any details of pre-season friendlies next month. Some of City’s opponents have been more forthcoming with the information, so here is what we know so far.

Tuesday 13 July – just 48 hours after the World Cup Final, City kick off pre-season at Guiseley. This game was arranged as part of James Hanson’s transfer to Valley Parade.

Saturday 17 July – City travel down the M62 to play North Ferriby United. A regular stop off point this; with the club first making visits to the Hull-based club when Dean Windass was a Bantam, as he begun his career here.

Thursday 22 July – A mini-tour of the South is clearly taking place, as the Bantams travel to ex-City legend Jamie Lawrence’s Ashford Town.

Saturday 24 July – City face Chelmsford City two days later. As part of the Scott Neilson transfer from Cambridge City, a friendly was agreed but the date has yet to be announced. Expect it to be a couple of days after this.

Saturday 31 July – a home game will apparently be played on this date, most probably against League One opposition.

There’s also likely to be the traditional friendly at Bradford (Park Avenue) at some stage.
