A former soldier from Bradford who is working as a humanitarian in Kenya told how he has ‘converted’ his colleagues into Bradford City fans before the Capital One Cup final.

Patrick Noonan (above), who works for the World Food Programme (WFP), said he will be watching the match with a huge international contingent in Dadaad on Sunday.

He said: “I have converted my 54 WFP colleagues, who are all hardened Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester Utd fans, into supporting the Bantams on Sunday.

“On Sunday there will be a large international contingent in Dadaab including Africans, British, French, Irish, Japanese, Nepalese and Slovenians watching and cheering on the Bantams!”
