Gary Bowyer Leaves Bradford City
Bradford City Football Club have this afternoon confirmed they have parted company with manager Gary Bowyer following a run of seven league games without a win. Bowyer, who had previously been in charge at Blackpool and Blackburn Rover has spent eleven months in charge of the Bantams after taking over at Valley Parade from David Hopkin.
Bradford City’s interim chief executive Julian Rhodes said, “I would like to thank Gary for his efforts over the past year. He came to the club at a difficult time and inherited a team heading for relegation, which we were unable to avoid. He’s built a squad over the summer that has proven it is capable of competing at the right end of Sky Bet League Two.
However over the course of the last few months, results have undoubtedly declined and in view of recent events we felt a change was necessary in order to compete in this division and to make a push for a play-off place. We would like to take this opportunity to wish Gary the very best for the future.”
