FOOTBALL: Bradford march on
BRADFORD Town manager Paul Shanley reckons he has a clutch of ‘winners’ at his disposal.
Unbeaten Bradford are six points clear at the top of the Toolstation League First Division after a stunning start to the new season, their latest triumph coming as they beat Almondsbury UWE 7-0 on Wednesday night.
Shanley has hailed his squad’s strength in depth as the driving factor behind Bradford’s early season success.
“We’ve added real quality to the squad this year with players that have won this league and the Premier Division,’’ said the Trowbridge Road boss.
“They’re winners and the lads that are already here are learning from them.
“The lads are doing what’s asked of them and more and it doesn’t seem to change, even if we make changes to the side.
“They’ve been fantastic and we’ve only conceded six goals (in the league) because the defence has been outstanding.”
Shanley also paid tribute to star striker Sam Jordan, who has netted in all but one of Bradford’s games this season and took his monster goal tally to 28 from just 13 appearances with a hat-trick on Wednesday.
“It’s only October so it’s frightening to think what he could do this season,” said Shanley.
“He loves scoring goals and he’ll be the first to say that his team-mates have been brilliant in creating so many chances for him to finish off.
“You’re obviously going to get local teams from higher league taking a look at him because you’d be silly not to, but Sammy’s happy here and enjoying it.”
