Bradford City veterans are celebrating silverware from the 37th Hamm SPVG international tournament in Germany.

They beat Burnley in the final to lift the Jurgen Graef trophy for only the third time – emulating the success of 1987 and 2011.

City won their group with victories over previous winners Hertha Berlin and local side Hammer SC08 and a draw against SVF Herringen.

They then kept their cool in the semi-finals to win a penalty shoot-out 5-4 against hosts Hamm SPVG after the game had finished 1-1.

Burnley fielded several former Clarets in the final but Mick Burke netted the only goal for the Bantams.
