As this weekend marks the end of the season for Bradford City, now is the opportune moment for Width of a Post to thank some people for their help and support over the past few months. The site was launched only four-and-a-bit months ago, but we already seem to have achieved a lot.
Firstly, I’d like to thank everyone who has written an article for Width of a Post this season. It takes time to write and edit a piece; and I really appreciate everyone who has undertaken such a level of commitment to deliver top quality articles, which we have published on the site.
So thanks to Luke Lockwood, Tim Roche, Omar Eliwi, Ian Sheard, Rob Craven, David Lawrence, Alex Scott (Width of a Post will spend the summer trying to raise the capital for a transfer bid to sign Alex up from his own wonderful site!), Damien Wilkinson, Mark Scully, Gareth Walker, David Pendleton and Ron Beaumont.
I’m particularly proud of the fact that – apart from the loss to Rotherham in January, where Width of a Post was still being set up – we have published a match report of every City match since Boxing Day. That is due to the dedication of several writers giving up precious weekend time and/or working into the small hours to produce articulate match reports. Thank you to you all (and let’s do a full season in 2012/13!).
Beyond the writers, I would also like to thank people who have supported Width of a Post this season through promoting it or helping out with certain things. Mike Harrison at City Gent, Mick Shackleton at Friends of Bradford City, the Bradford City Supporters Trust, the Skipton Bantams, Dom and Tom from Bantams Banter, Guy Branston, Michelle Bolton, the lads at the Twounforunates.com (great site) and – not forgetting – my long-suffering wife Rachel (for her patience and help proof reading). It meant a lot, so thanks.
Finally, I would like to thank you – the reader – for your support. Width of a Post was set up from the ashes of BoyfromBrazil purely to give me a platform to write about the club I love. It was never about getting website hits – but nevertheless it is great to note that the site has increased considerably in popularity over this short period of time. I’m very fortunate to receive a lot of positive feedback for the site, and it is a very rewarding feeling to know that people appreciate and enjoy what we do.
So, thanks for reading – it means a lot.
(ps – please do keep reading Width of a Post during the summer too. We have a few cool things planned, and – once the Swindon game is covered – over the next fortnight we will feature an in-depth review of the season.)
