The Trust welcomes Derek Adams as the new Manager at Bradford City
Derek Adams became the new Manager at Bradford City as of Friday 4th June 2021, and we wish him the very best of luck in his immediate goal of getting the Bantams out of League Two.
It has been a successful coup for City of bringing Adams to us whilst still under contract with Morecambe FC, where he led the Shrimps to League One through the Play Offs, beating Newport County 1 -0 on the Bank Holiday at the end of May.
Adams, who has signed a new three-year deal with City, has a history of working well under pressure and getting teams promoted, such as, Ross County, where he started his managerial Career and more recently, Plymouth Argyle.
We hope that paying the ‘compensation clause’ for acquiring an, ‘in contract’ Adams pays dividends for the Club. It hasn’t been the most conventional way of bringing a new manager to Valley Parade.
Since the release of Mark Trueman and Conor Sellars on the 10th May, speculation had continued to mount. The Club statement on the manager situation, 10th May, suggested the Club had been looking and found someone already. Those predictions were proven to be right.
The Trust would like to see continuity and long-term stability now we have landed on such a proven manager in Derek Adams, whereby all the resources possible are at his disposal so that he can get the best out of the team from his selection.
We would like to thank Mark Trueman and Conor Sellars for their sterling efforts, jumping into the breach with no first team managerial experience, steering us from the drop zone and within touching distance of the Play-offs.
Here’s to Derek Adams leading the Club to promotion next season and building on that success with us for as long as possible.
