Series: Bantams Worldwide

Throughout the entire history of Bradford City – though, admittedly, more often in recent generations – players from a number of different cultures, countries and backgrounds have played for the club.

This series is dedicated to those players – the ones from outside the United Kingdom and Ireland who have donned the famous claret and amber shirt. These could be players born in the UK who have subsequently represented a different country – or players born all over the world.

Latest Series: Bantams Cult Heroes

The definition of a cult hero in football always a pretty loose one – but we’ve no doubt all seen at least one player during our time as a Bradford City player that fits the billing.

This series is dedicated to those players.  The best player ever to play for City? Probably not. But for whatever reason, they are adored and cherished for what they did during their time with the club. This is Bantams Cult Heroes.

#1: Edinho – the boy from Brazil
#2: Nigel Pepper – the free-kick maestro
