With the current Bradford City squad letting down the Bradford public with their attitude and application, supporters have an opportunity to meet and hear from a past Bantams hero who ran through brick walls for the club.
Lee Duxbury is taking part in a special Q&A session at the Old White Bear in Crosshills, near Keighley on Tuesday 30 April, starting at 8pm.
Keighley-born Duxbury had two spells playing for the Bantams in the late 80s/mid 90s, after emerging through the youth ranks. He is best remembered for playing a key role in Bradford City’s 1996 promotion to Division One, which included the club’s first-ever visit to Wembley for the play off final. He played more than 250 times for the club, which included spells under the infamous John Docherty as well as Chris Kamara, so he’ll certainly have plenty of stories to tell.
The event is hosted by Pulse radio commentator Jason Thornton. Tickets can be bought online now costing £3, which includes a pie and pea supper plus a donation to Sue Ryder Manorlands.
A great way to raise money for a good cause, and to meet and reminise about happier times. See you there!
