Stuart McCall appointed new Bradford City manager

Stuart McCall returns to Valley Parade for a third spell after being announced as Bradford City manager.

The 55 year old replaces Gary Bowyer who was sacked yesterday as the club pushes for promotion.

The Bantams sit in seventh in League Two, one place outside the play off positions.

McCall has signed a contract that will keep him at the helm until at least the end of next season along with long-term assistant Kenny Black.

In 2017 the Scot led Bradford City to the League One play-off final and is now relishing another chance at the club.

The club is a huge one in this division and, with everything still to play for, the job is to try and get us back to where we should be.
