The Sporting Heroes project worked with Bradford City Football Club in 2010.

The Sporting Heroes project first contacted the team at Bradford City in April 2010 as a way of reaching out to the different rugby, football and crickets clubs across West Yorkshire. From initial consultation, plans were put in place for the project team to capture memories of a number of ex-players.

In line with City's heritage project (see Bantams Past Memories project page) to capture the history of the area of the Valley Parade ground and the many different communities who have lived there, the project team were given permission to interview eight former players in June 2010.

Sporting Heroes would like to thank Bradford City, especially Paula Helliwell and Ian Ormondroyd, for their co-operation and for helping the project achieve its aims.

Do you have a memory of Bradford City? We would love to hear from you, so that we can add to the Sporting Heroes archive. You can add your memory on the Contribute page, or please call (0113) 393 9775 or e-mail educationandoutreach@wyjs.org.uk.
