BRADFORD has been home to many legends in all sorts of different fields over the years and it is time to honour those who have made the biggest impact.

This is the return of a feature with the latest five inductees into the Telegraph & Argus's Bradford Hall of Fame, part 14 of the series.

As they have made a promising start to the new League Two season, and travel to Leyton Orient today, this week it's a Bradford City special.

Each of these players has left their mark on the Bantams, helping the Valley Parade club to success and raising the profile of the city over the years.

In previous Hall of Fame City specials we have already inducted the likes of Stuart McCall, Bobby Campbell and Ces Podd.

Bradford Telegraph and Argus:


He may be well known for his time playing for Leeds United, but Cherry (pictured above right) also had strong Bantams links.

He was appointed in December 1982 as a replacement for player-manager Roy McFarland, who had left Valley Parade to join Derby County. He signed from Leeds for £10,000 and later that month was joined by Terry Yorath as assistant.

The following summer he had to cope with the insolvency of the club and receivership.

In his second season in charge, 1984/85, the club secured the Division Three championship and a return to the second division for the first time in 48 years.

Cherry is remembered for his leadership during the summer of 1985 in the aftermath of the fire disaster when he spent much of the time attending funerals and visiting injured supporters in hospital.

Cherry was manager when City returned to Valley Parade in December 1986 but was sacked the following month.

He played 102 league and cup games for the Bantams between December 1982 and May 1985.

He died aged 72 last year.

Bradford City fans will not only remember Lawrence for his spell, including during the club's Premiership era, but also his flamboyant hairstyles.

The right winger sported a number of bright hairdye jobs during his time dazzling defenders in the claret and amber.

He scored 12 goals in 155 games for the Bantams between 1997 and 2002, during a 17-club career during 19 years as a professional.

Lawrence held a special workout on his Facebook page to raise funds for the Bradford Burns Unit and the NHS last year during the pandemic.

The now 51-year-old is also a personal trainer to many current professional footballers and had held innovative 'Captain Pain' workshops.

Lawrence earned 24 caps for Jamaica between 2000 and 2004, scoring once.

The Bradford-born striker started his career at non-league Eccleshill United and Guiseley, famously working at the Co-op in Idle.

His big break came when he signed for City in July 2009, a transfer fee of £7,500 was eventually set in a tribunal.

Hanson's first goal for the Bantams came in a 5-4 win over Cheltenham and he won the player of the year award in his first season.

He left City in 2017 for Sheffield United, before spells with AFC Wimbledon and Grimsby Town.

He was instrumental in City's run to the 2013 League Cup final and was named man of the match in the semi-final second leg against Aston Villa, where he also scored.

He also lined up in City's FA Cup giant-killing win at Chelsea. Hanson made 283 appearances for City, scoring 77 goals.

The 33-year-old signed for Vanarama National League North side Farsley Celtic this summer.

Bradford Telegraph and Argus:


The former Bantams player and assistant manager has made an impact on and off the pitch in the Bradford district.

The left-back made 318 appearances for City, scoring 12 goals between 1994 and 2005.

He then returned to the club as right-hand man under Bantams bosses Stuart McCall and Peter Taylor.

He is also the chief executive and co-founder of One In a Million. The Manningham school, a Bradford-based charity in partnership with Bradford City Football Club, has the aim of working with children and young people in areas of deprivation within Bradford. It is based in the club’s former shop.

He was one of the Bantams most fondly remembered players from their Premiership era.

He famously scored a hat-trick in City's 4-4 draw with Derby County.

Windass enjoyed two spells with the Bantams. Firstly, he scored 15 times in 74 games between 1999 and 2001, then returned to Valley Parade from 2003 to 2007. This was a prolific stint as he fired in 60 goals in 142 matches.
