Excited fans have already started gathering in City Park hours ahead of the parade to celebrate Bradford City’s promotion to League One. Phil Parkinson’s Wembley heroes don’t leave Valley Parade until 6.30pm tonight - and won’t arrive in City Park until about 7pm. But that hasn’t stopped supporters grabbing a prime spot to honour their heroes in City Park and Centenary Square, where a party atmosphere is building. Richard Lightowler arrived under the City Hall clock at 2.30pm. The 21-year-old, of Queensbury, had the day off college. “I am a big Bradford fan,” he said. “They are all my favourite players! I am looking forward to the parade - they deserve it.” Paul Maxwell, a Bantams supporter for 15 years, arrived at 2.45pm. He said: “I am very happy, it’s going to be good.” Damian Webster, who was wearing a commemorative scarf from the City v Aston Villa Capital One Cup semi-final, said he was off to buy a Bantams shirt in preparation for the parade. He said: “Even when they lost 5-0 to Swansea they did us proud. They always do us proud - I can’t wait to see them celebrating.” We will be providing full live coverage of the parade here tonight - and keep an eye out for our newspaper sellers, with a special poster giveaway for anyone who buys a T&A from them!
