Bradford City head coach Steve Winterburn made no promises at the start of the club’s first season in the northern section of the FA Women’s Premier League.

Winterburn admitted at the turn of the year: “I just want us to finish as high as possible.”

In reality, he could scarcely have anticipated the success that was to follow in the ensuing weeks.

City go into their final game of the season on Sunday lying second in the table, having already won the County Cup and reached the semi-finals of the League Cup They need only a draw at third-placed Preston North End to finish runners-up to champions Sheffield.
