FUNERAL DETAILS FOR BRYAN EDWARDS

30 June 2016

The football club have received the funeral details for former City manager Bryan Edwards.

Bryan's funeral will take place next Monday (4 July 2016) at Nab Wood Cemetery and Crematorium from 1:20pm.

Nab Wood Cemetery & Crematorium can be found at 283 Bingley Road, Shipley, BD18 4BG.

Those present at Bryan's funeral next Monday will then be welcome to move onto Valley Parade afterwards.

Bryan passed away earlier this month aged 85.

Born in nearby Woodlesford, Leeds, Bryan managed Bradford City between 1971 and 1975 following a successful playing career.

He played 518 times for Bolton Wanderers and won the FA Cup with the Lancashire side back in 1958.

A talented cricketer in his youth, Bryan also spent some time with the military for National Service.

After initially leaving City in 1975, Edwards became a qualified physiotherapist and eventually returned to Valley Parade two years later following brief spells coaching at Huddersfield Town and Leeds United.

In his second period at Bradford, Bryan filled a host of roles, including assistant manager, coach, physio, general manager and match-day host in the banqueting areas.

Bryan was involved with the club when City earned promotion in both 1981 and 1985. 

He continued to live in the Bradford area following his retirement.
