Phil Parkinson leaves Bradford for 'fresh challenge'

Phil Parkinson says he 'fancied a fresh challenge' after leaving Bradford City to become the new Bolton manager.

The 48-year-old signed a two-year deal at the Macron Stadium earlier today.

It brought to an end five years in West Yorkshire during which time Parkinson led the Bantams to a League Cup final and promotion to League One.

The new Bolton boss was complimentary of his former club, and wished Bradford's owners the very best in taking City forward in a new direction.

Bradford City finished fifth in League One last season but lost their playoff semi-final to Millwall.

Bantams remain in League One after failing to overturn Millwall deficit

Bradford City will remain in League One, after they failed to overturn a two goal deficit in their second leg play-off semi final with Millwall.

The Bantams went to Millwall trailing three - one after the first leg, and despite lots of early possession, Lee Gregory scored for the hosts to all but end hopes of a win. Bradford did manage to get one back late in the first half through Gareth Proctor, but it ended all square on the night, and four - two on aggregate.
