We're Eire!

14 July 2013

The Bantams have begun their week-long stay in the Republic of Ireland after safely arriving in the country this Sunday.

Barely twenty-four hours after their opening pre-season win over Guiseley, Phil Parkinson's men set off from Leeds/Bradford Airport this Sunday evening to make the short flight across the Irish Sea to the Emerald Isle.

City's travelling party for their trip to Ireland included every senior squad player who featured against Guiseley on Saturday except for Andy Gray after it was sadly confirmed that the striker had indeed broken his left forearm in the match.

The Bantams' squad during their time on tour in Ireland also includes a small number of trialists in it plus apprentice duo Jack Stockdill and Niall Heaton.

City will train at least once everyday during their stay using the football pitches and health facilities available to them at their hotel base. 

Parkinson's squad will, of course, play two games against Irish opposition as well. A trip to Athlone Town on Tuesday (16 July 2013) will be followed by a match at Bohemian on the Saturday (20 July).
