Bradford City Legend Passes Away

Malcolm Scott (1936 – 2022)

Bradford City Football Club is today mourning the loss of honorary associate director and club stalwart Malcolm Scott, who has sadly passed away aged eighty-five. Malcolm Scott was a long-term friend of everyone at Valley Parade having been involved with the club since 1978. The former radio summariser was then first named an associate director in 1985, having assisted the Bantams in a number of different roles prior.

Close to half a century of loyal service to the football club included being introduced to Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, and coordinating the club’s involvement at the many memorial services in the aftermath of the Valley Parade Fire Disaster. The Utilita Energy Stadium’s press facility, used on matchdays, will be re-named the Scott Media Suite in memory of Malcolm and his late wife Margaret Scott, who passed away in 2020.

Following conversations with his family, a minute’s applause will be observed in tribute ahead of Bradford City’s match against Scunthorpe United on Saturday April 23. Bradford City Chief Executive officer, Ryan Sparks, said, “We are devastated to hear of Malcolm’s sad passing. He is a true stalwart of Bradford City and his association with the club goes back decades. 

When I first arrived at the club in 2018, Malcolm and his wife, Margaret, were extremely welcoming and made me personally feel at home. I will never forget that. He was a proud Scunthorpe man, but Bradford City was his club and I hope you will join us in paying tribute to a great man at Valley Parade when we face the Iron on Saturday April 23.” 

Rest in peace, Malcolm Scott.
