Former Chairman Gibb Considering Club Takeover
Former chairman Gordon Gibb is apparently considering a takeover consortium with Jack Tordoff to purchase Bradford City, Gibb took over as chairman of Bradford City in 2002 and eventually resigned as chairman in 2004 with Julian Rhodes taking the reigns of the club, however, he still owns Valley Parade with his pension fund.
Local businessman Jack Tordoff is the founder of Motor Retail Company JCT600 that took a reported £1.251 billion turnover in 2018. Tordoff is a Bradford City fan and supposedly is part of a consortium who are interested in buying the club. If this consortium does attempt to takeover at Bradford City it could be a huge surprise with the West Yorkshire club only recently being taken over by Edin Rahic and Stefan Rupp.
During Rupp and Rahic’s first season in charge the club reached the Sky Bet League One Play-Off Final, losing 1-0 to Millwall due to a late Steve Morrison goal. Last season was less successful for the Bantams, who sacked manager Stuart McCall early in the new year and then had Simon Grayson as a short-term boss, before he left at the end of the season.
