Grimsby game added

4 June 2013

City's third confirmed pre-season friendly of the summer will see Phil Parkinson's men travel to Blue Square Bet Premier side Grimsby Town towards the end of July.

Following on from the confirmation earlier this Tuesday of City's friendly fixtures against Guiseley and Doncaster Rovers, Parkinson's squad have now scheduled in a trip to Grimsby's Blundell Park for Tuesday 23rd July 2013 as part of their pre-season preparations.

The Mariners, who lost out in the Blue Square Bet Premier Play-Offs last season at the semi-final stage to eventual winners Newport County, have a host of former Bantams in their ranks.

Ross Hannah, Scott Neilson, Joe Colbeck and Scott Kerr are all currently in the Grimsby squad ahead of the new campaign.

The three friendly matches confirmed this Tuesday - Guiseley, Grimsby and Doncaster - plus the prospect of two further fixtures during the club's week-long tour of Ireland, are expected to make up the vast bulk of City's pre-season programme.

No further first-team friendlies for the Bantams ahead of the 2013/2014 campaign are scheduled at this moment.
