Extra-time Greaves winner puts Bradford Park Avenue in dreamland

The champage flows for ecstatic Avenue players

Tom Greaves scores the winning goal in the 118th minute

Let the celebrations begin

First published in Sport by

Bradford Park Avenue 1 FC United of Manchester 0

(after extra-time, 0-0 after 90 mins)

)The goal-poaching instinct of Tom Greaves saw Avenue finally reach their promised land as they gained promotion to the Blue Square Bet North Division.

Greaves’ clinical finish from three yard in the penultimate minute of stoppage time condemned FC United to another season in the Evo-Stik Premier Division and removed the threat of the penalty shoot-out lottery that was imminent.

There was already enough nervous tension around a packed Horsfall Stadium and Greaves’ goal was a more fitting end to an enthralling afternoon.

The first ten minutes of the game were a blur of action, with both teams looking for an early initiative, but from then on Bradford were firmly in the driving seat.

Former Avenue keeper Jon Worsnop returned to Horsfall in United’s colours and it was he who had to make the first save. Alex Davidson cut inside and made himself room for a shot but Worsnop gathered.

Davidson provided the next opening, only to see Nicky Boshell fire over from inside the area, but he was soon limping out of the game with a foot injury.

Club captain Rob O’Brien replaced Davidson and within two minutes he provided a cross for Richard Marshall but his header went into Worsnop’s arms.

The first of two controversial incidents happened midway through the first half. FC United winger Carlos Roca appeared to catch Avenue left back Martin Drury with an elbow. There was a long stoppage but no action from the referee.

Boshell fired over again, this time with a volley from the edge of the area after a corner, but the visitors ended the first half with a half chance of their own. Centre back Adam Jones’ header to a corner was easily plucked out of the air by Lamb.

Bradford bossed possession in the second half without really creating clear-cut chances, with FC United sitting deep and relying on the breakaway.

There were two almighty scrambles in the FC United area but both ended up with Avenue players having hands on heads as chances went begging.

If the visitors were fortunate when Roca was not – at least – yellow-carded for his challenge on Drury, they were exceptionally lucky to end the game with a full compliment after Jake Cotterill landed blows on an Avenue player as the pair hit the ground following a 50/50 challenge. There was an immediate melee but again no action from the referee.

The visitors stepped up a gear in extra-time while Avenue’s players looked tired after their endeavours throughout the game.

However, the home side had fresh legs up front. O’Brien, who only made the bench after recovering from a troublesome knee injury, was forced off in the 72nd minute and replaced by Matty James. Greaves came on four minutes before the end of the first extra period.

FC United threatened to steal the game but Avenue’s defence were stoic and then came the knife through Manchester hearts. With a little over 90 seconds remaining, Avenue launched another concerted attack which eventually led to Adam Clayton drilling the ball into the box and there was Greaves to add the crucial touch.

Delighted boss John Deacey said: “I thought we deserved it because we played well. We are all absolutely delighted. We just want to go and enjoy the celebrations now because these kinds of victories, days like this, don’t come around that often.”

Brilliant thankyou to all the players and management at the club. Been waiting for this day for years. I remember going to Park Avenue in 1962 to see my first ever live game, Avenue v Accrington Stanley in the old fourth division and been a fan ever since. Yesterday was just as exciting for me as my first ever game. Another two years hope Avenue are playing a derby game again against City.

Allan clarke was playing for Fulham as was the late great Sir Bobby Robson at number 6 in what would be his last playing season.He was sacked as Fulham manager after two relegations in his first managerial job!
Yes the AVENUE will ultimately be back onto the bigger stage.

Good to have comments remembering some of the good days from the past. My own favourite memory is the game v City at Valley Parade, in Feb' 68. We were bottom of the league at the time and City top. Going 2-0 up and hanging on to win 2-1. Remember a couple of great saves from John Harvey in goal. Priceless- lets hope those days come again soon.

Brilliant to check the old iphone and see the news of Tom's winner on the BPA website. Good luck to all at the club for a successful time next season. League two isn't that far away. Just keep enjoying your football and playing with heart.
My first game was at Avenue in '67. Soon after that were the difficult days and the sad night against City as a goodbye to mark the closure of the club.
I never thought I'd see the great Park Avenue name again.
All good stuff!

We said kevin54. Avenue have to complete with clubs like Chester & Halifax who get excellent support from their local papers. Chester got a 10-page spread in the Chester Chronicle when they pipped Avenue for the NPL title and an open-top bus tour around the city.

The T&A treated the Avenue v FC United play-off final as just another fixture. There was no build up at all. Even the contentious change of date was only mentioned in the small print.

as a rare feel good story coming out of Bradford, the T & A could make hay out of this & sell a good few papers in the process. Run a story/article say in 3 parts over 3 days or 3 weeks.

Part 1, the history of Avenue & success stories pre liquidation (eg starting in the Southern League, promotions & cup wins over Man City & Arsenal, famous exports Schackleton, Greenwood, Hector, Dolan etc, biggest City Derbies, source some photos to accompany).

Part 2, the resurrection... the early nomadic existence, steady climbs up & down the leagues, previous managers ( the late great Trevor Storton, Carl Shutt etc ) & players (Benn, Hayward, Quinn, Maxwell etc)

Part 3, this season (the results, league, FA & WRCC) & again players/management profiles

I think two professional football clubs (again) in Bradford would provide big free publicity for the city & put us alongside Bristol & Nottingham

The T & A have an opportunity to help increase the profile of the club & help bring this about, if the powers that be their are enlightened enough to see this

Throw that man a biscuit.
Many a same story of those of us who turned their allegiance to claret and amber after our sad demise in 1974.
But could never quite get over our first love.
And are now absolutely thrilled to see the progress.
But we have lost two generations of fans.
Now is the time for all those old AVENUEITES to return and bring along their great grandkids.
Even my 13 year old daughter got excited as Tom made us all ecstatic.And thats saying something as shes previously shown no interest.But the occasion stil got to everyone.
