A popular Indian restaurant is set to welcome two Bradford City players for some cooking lessons.

Ciaran Kelly and Bobby Pointon will be swapping the stadium for the kitchen for Green Football Weekend (GFW).

It comes after Bradford City manager Graham Alexander, who is vegetarian, contributed his favourite Dahl recipe to GFW’s Cookbook.

‘Ready Veggie Cook-off’ features recipes from more than 70 football players, pundits, celebrity chefs, club nutritionists and football-loving personalities.

There will also be a Green Football Cup fan tournament, where more than 80 of the UK’s top clubs will vie for the trophy.

By trying a recipe from the Cookbook, fans can register a goal for their club in the Green Football Cup at www.greenfootballweekend.com

Ciaran and Bobby will be learning the ropes from Prashad’s chefs at their multi-award restaurant in Drighlington on Wednesday.

The restaurant has been awarded Michelin’s coveted Bib Gourmand several times and has retained the AA’s two rosette rating since 2015.

It has been serving up vegetarian delights for more than 30 years. 

Gary Lineker, GFW ambassador, said: “Football has the unbelievable power to unite everyone - clubs, players, and fans from across the community with a common goal to take action.

"Trying a healthy veggie option over Green Football Weekend is a simple step towards a healthier lifestyle and a healthier planet.”
