It's been a very special night for Bradford City. Thousands turned out to cheer the players on an open top bus ride, and welcome them to a civic reception in honour of their promotion from League Two. And as John Shires reports, they had an extra reason to celebrate.
Bradford manager Phil Parkinson and his staff have signed new three-year deals with Bradford City.
The former Charlton boss, who led his side to an npower League Two play-off victory on Saturday, joins assistant manager Steve Parkin and fitness coach Nick Allamby in signing the deal.
Parkinson joined the club in 2011 and the Bantams finished 18th in his first season. There had been speculation the 45-year-old would move away from Valley Parade.
"I had verbally agreed my contract with Julian (Rhodes, joint-chairman) a long time ago really, but didn't want anything to detract from our main focus throughout the play-offs, which was obviously to get promoted.
"Now that aim has been achieved, I was able to sit down with the two chairmen this morning and get the contract all finalised.
"We've had a terrific season, but we know we have an important summer ahead of us now. We can't sit back on what we have achieved - we have to keep working and striving forward.
"We have to keep improving the club in all departments.
"Our aim now is to get a team on the pitch next year that our supporters will enjoy watching."
Well done to Bradford City. Yorkshire football on the rise like the best Yorkshire Puddings in the red hot oven of the beautiful game.
