CAMPION host Eccleshill United in an eagerly-awaited Bradford derby at the Stadium on Monday night in Division One of the Toolstation Northern Counties East League.

Both clubs are in the hunt for promotion to the top tier, which means the meeting will have added spice.

The home side are hoping for a special night and have slashed the price to just £2 for adults and £1 for seniors and under-16s in a bid to get more locals through the turnstiles.

It will be the third attempt to get the re-arranged fixture played. The original date, Saturday, February 10, was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, one of countless games lost to the weather by clubs at all levels over the wet winter.

The game was given a second date, Tuesday, March 13 but that was also washed out so the clubs have had to wait for their second meeting this term.

The Eagles won the reverse league fixture 3-1 at the Mitton Group Stadium way back at the end of August.

James Bicknell’s black and reds are just outside the play-off places but are in fine form and have beaten two of the sides above them, Glasshoughton Welfare and Grimsby Borough, already this month.

The Eagles are looking to secure the runners-up position and the automatic promotion place that goes with it but they will be wary of their neighbours.

Campion’s treasurer Andy Shepard said, “It’s a big game for both clubs as Eccleshill are challenging for an automatic promotion spot and we are still eyeing up the last play-off spot.

“We are trying to attract as many local football supporters as possible, and ideally any Bradford City and Avenue supporters, by offering reduced admission to the game.

"I’m sure that given what is at stake for both us and Eccleshill it will be an exciting game.

“Therefore it would be great if we could boost the crowd and hopefully see some new faces around the ground.”
