A FORTNIGHT ago, we brought you the exciting news that Chelsea, along with Liverpool, Manchester City and Bradford City, were sending scouts to Bradford (Park Avenue)'s male scholarship trials in late December.

And it seems that the West London side, who currently sit third in the Premier League, two points behind leaders Tottenham, are keen on the work Avenue are doing down at Horsfall.

That is because they have now confirmed that they will be regular attenders to Bradford's upcoming skills centre for five to 12 year olds, to run the rule over some of West Yorkshire's most talented youngsters.

The first one of those sessions takes place on December 11, down at Horsfall from 6pm-7pm, and they will be running until next June.

To find out more, contact Avenue's academy manager Tom McStravick via his email on thomas.mcstravick@bpafc.com or by phone on 07821 579451.
