Another great afternoon at Valley Parade. We took a group of teenagers out for the day. This involved a visitor to the Bradford City grounds. They thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon.

Poor facilities. Not enough food outlets. Expensive food. Poor view pillers obstruct many seats. Stand too close to goal line. Seats are small no legroom. People great stewards and home fans.
