BRADFORD (Park Avenue) have announced that manager Mark Bower and his assistant Danny Boshell would like a portion of their salaries to be donated to the Players Fund for the 2018/19 season.

During their contract negotiations at the end of last season, both suggested that they were keen to implement the idea and that has now been confirmed.

Chief executive Rob Stanley stated: "Mark and Danny’s gesture is fantastic and definitely the first time I have ever come across such generosity from managers.

"Last season the Players Fund definitely assisted the team to reach the play-offs and we owe a massive thanks to you, the fans, for all your contributions.

"We are now re-launching the Players Fund and all monies donated will be ring-fenced for Mark and his playing budget. We hope you that we can raise the same as last season to assist the lads."

Supporters and businesses wishing to donate can do so on a regular monthly basis or through one-off donations.

The donate button can be found on the right hand side of Avenue's official website. It takes contributors to PayPal, who can pay through any major card or use their PayPal account. Any donations received will go directly into the club's bank account.

For more information, contact Jamie Sinclair ( or Dave Stordy ( or call the club on 01274 674584.

Donations can also now be made via card payment and people can make a donation on match days or pop into the club if passing.

Cheques can be made payable to Bradford (Park Avenue) FC and sent to the Horsfall Stadium, Cemetery Road, Bradford, BD6 2NG.

Finally, fans are told not to worry if they cannot afford a regular donation, as there will be a bucket in the club shop at home games.
