DURING Bradford (Park Avenue)'s 113-year history, many great players have pulled on the shirt. Here is a list of five men who you may not know appeared for Avenue at one stage.

Joe Fagan

Fagan came over to West Yorkshire towards the end of his playing days, joining Avenue in the 1953-54 season after starring previously for Manchester City.

However, it is his time in the dugout which he is most remembered for.

The legendary coach was part of Bill Shankly and Bob Paisley's Liverpool revolution, working under the pair for 25 years before stepping into the hotseat himself for two years.

During his time as part of the backroom staff, the club won nine First Division titles, three European Cups and two FA Cups.

The winning did not stop when Fagan was at the helm either, as he led the Reds to more continental success and another league title.

He stepped down in 1985 to allow club stalwart Kenny Dalglish to take over the reins.

Neil Redfearn

The next man on our list played for an amazing 14 clubs before he ended up at Horsfall in the 2006-07 season.

Redfearn spent most of his playing days at Barnsley, making almost 300 appearances for the Tykes in the nineties.

The Dewsbury-born midfielder reached the top flight with the South Yorkshire side in the 1997-98 campaign, before eventually ending up at Bradford City during that remarkable 1999-00 season, where the Bantams fought their way to Premiership safety with a final day home win over Liverpool.

Oldham, Bolton, Crystal Palace, Watford and Wigan are among the other clubs Redfearn appeared for.

Younger fans may recognise Redfearn from a miserable spell in charge of Leeds United, where he only lasted one season, guiding the Whites to a 15th-placed Championship finish.

Paddy Kenny

It all began at Horsfall for the much-travelled goalkeeper, as he was Bradford's main man between the sticks for the 1997-98 season.

The Halifax-born number one made 55 appearances in all competitions during that campaign.

After an unsuccessful trial at the Bantams, thanks to then Avenue boss Trevor Storton's recommendation, Kenny began his lengthy working relationship with Neil Warnock, at Football League side Bury.

It was at Sheffield United where he made his name though, spending eight years with the Blades, including a spell in the Premier League which resulted in final day relegation heartbreak.

The Irish international would return to the top flight with Warnock's QPR, then have a two-year spell at Leeds.

A move to a fifth club managed by the veteran boss occurred at Rotherham, before Kenny retired in 2018 after making a phenomenal 654 professional appearances.

Kevin Hector

This player is the only one in our list who was arguably at Avenue during his prime.

Hector bagged an extraordinary 113 goals in his 176 appearances, which included scoring 44 in one 46-game season, for Avenue during a four-year spell (1962-66) in the club's heyday.

Those numbers earned the lethal forward a move to the Baseball Ground at 21, where he went on to became a Derby legend during his 14 years of service.

Two top-flight winners' medals and two England caps followed for the striker, whose goals helped play a part in Brian Clough's march to managerial stardom.

Ron Greenwood

Not many clubs have a former England manager on their list of ex-players.

After serving in the RAF over in Northern Ireland, Greenwood signed for Bradford and made 59 appearances from 1945-49.

Spells at Brentford, Chelsea and Fulham followed, before a move into management.

He famously spent 13 years in charge of West Ham, overseeing the Moore-Hurst-Peters era and winning the FA Cup in 1964, followed by the European Cup Winners' Cup a year later.

The international stage came calling in 1977, as Greenwood replaced Don Revie as England boss. He took the nation to a European Championship and a World Cup, before resigning in 1982.
