Saturday 27th April

Toolstation Western League Premier: Roman Glass St George 3-3 Bradford Town

Bradford rounded off the season with a high scoring draw after coming back from two goals down at a blustery Oaklands Park. 

Both sides appeared to struggle with the conditions compounded by a bouncy artificial surface. It was the home side who were first to get to grips with it taking the lead midway through the first half with a thunderous strike from outside the box. Town levelled just before half time when Matt Morris fired low in to the corner following good work from Dan Cottle. 

As Bradford pressed forward aided with the wind behind them it was against the run of play that The Romans took the lead and then made it 3-1 shortly after when Town failed to clear their lines in a penalty box scramble. Town responded immediately when a slick move was rounded off by Will Hailston. The visitors suffered a setback when Jack Witcombe appeared to be harshly dismissed for a soft challenge which also led to the dismissal of Bradford boss Wayne Thorne for his protestations. 

This seemed to galvanise the Blues and in the dying stages Hailston got his second much to the delight of the Blue Army behind the goal.  Bradford could have nicked all three points when Lewis Powell’s shot was blocked on the line but the side can take heart from a spirited comeback and a very encouraging 2018-19 campaign.

Monday 22nd April

Toolstation Western League Premier: Shortwood United 1-7 Bradford Town

Bradford moved up to sixth place in the league after cruising to victory against league strugglers Shortwood at Meadowbank. 

The Nailsworth based side have found it a difficult season rebuilding after demotion from the Southern League but should be commended for battling to the end even when the game was lost. They did however get off to a glorious start taking the lead through a fine shot which left Town ‘keeper Jordan Dibble rooted to the spot. It wasn’t long before Bradford levelled through a goalkeeping error allowing Lewis Powell to rob the ball from him and pass into the net. Another well taken Simon Prangley penalty, awarded when Dan Cottle was brought down in the box made it two to the visitors before the break. 

The second half saw Town take full control with Dan Cottle adding a third through a wonderful strike before Matt Morris got in on the act to make it four. Cottle got his second and Town’s fifth before Will Hailston and returning Jamie Lyons completed the rout to put the gloss on a comprehensive victory.

Friday 19th April

Toolstation Western League Premier: Bradford Town 5-2 Westbury United

Bradford completed the league double over near neighbours Westbury with an emphatic victory propelling them up to sixth place in the league. 

The opening exchanges were frenetic with a Matt Morris free kick crashing against the post for the hosts before Callum Demkiv failed to bury a golden opportunity from close range at the other end. Bradford then took the lead after trademark trickery from Dan Cottle in the box drew a mistimed tackle giving Town a penalty which was coolly dispatched by Simon Prangley. The largest home crowd of the season saw Town double their lead shortly after when a far post corner was headed back across the box by Lee Davidson to fellow centre-back Thomas Stocks who volleyed the ball home in style. 

Westbury suffered a further setback when Demkiv’s shocking lunge at Jack Witcombe earned him a straight red. A rampant Town then made it three when Matt Morris outpaced the Westbury right back before cutting inside and slamming the ball high into the net, sending the Town End into raptures. Westbury gave themselves an unlikely lifeline on the stroke of half time through Dan Kovacs whose curling effort from the edge of the box found the far corner.
 
The second half began with Westbury looking for a way back into the game but Bradford effectively put the game to bed however when they sliced United apart. A slick move ended with Dan Cottle playing though Will Hailston who slid the ball past Ed Baldy for the fourth. Westbury continued to battle and were rewarded with their second when Joe Stradling danced through the defence and drove the ball low into the corner past Jordan Dibble. Any faint hopes of a comeback however were extinguished when Hailston claimed his second of the match after partially lobbing Baldy who could only palm the ball back into his path for a tap in rounding off an exceptional performance from the Town.

Saturday 13th April

Toolstation Western League Premier: Hallen 1-2 Bradford Town

Bradford made heavy weather of it at Moorhouse Lane securing victory with the last chance of the game. 

Town threatened the hosts early on with a Dan Cottle free kick parried to safety and Will Hailston firing against the crossbar from a tight angle. It was around the half hour mark before Hallen created a chance when Simpson’s shot from the edge of the area was deflected over the bar. On 33 minutes Town finally opened the scoring when Hailston’s rasping shot from the edge of the area proved too much for Brodie. Hailston could have double the lead when played clean through but his attempt was thwarted by the Hallen shot stopper. Centre backs Thomas Stocks and Lee Davidson each had headers go close from corners before the break but the interval came without further success.   

Town frontman started the second period brightly with two good chances going begging before Jack Witcombe hit the post after fine build up play from Cottle. The inability to finish these chances came back to bite the visitors when Hallen levelled on 66 minutes through a rasping drive from Simpson giving Jordan Dibble no chance. The leveller seemed to knock the stuffing out of Bradford with Hallen looking the more likely to steal a win. That was until the 90th minute when Lee Davidson pinpoint long ball was superbly controlled by Greenland who dutifully dispatched the ball past the keeper to secure all three points.

Saturday 6th April

Toolstation Western League Premier: Bradford Town 1-1 Chipping Sodbury Town

It was a hard fought share of the spoils at Trowbridge Road as Town were unable to make it three wins in a row against a strong Sodbury side. 

Both sides started the game positively with the first chance of the game falling to Leon Greenland for Town who could only scuff his shot wide. The visitors then headed over the bar from a dangerous free kick before Dan Cottle’s curling left foot effort from the edge of the box was deflected onto the crossbar and away from danger. It was Chipping Sodbury’s turn to test the woodwork moments later when a long range pile-driver crashed straight off the post. A route one clearance gave the visitors a perfect opportunity to lead before the interval only for the striker to guide his shot wide of the target.  

The second half again began in an open manner with both sides trading blows in search of a breakthrough. Cottle tested the keeper after good build up play from Will Hailston and Sodbury again hit the upright at the other end. The visitors finally broke the deadlock shortly afterwards when good build up play was finished in style giving Jordan Dibble no chance. It looked as if Bradford would struggle to get back in to the game before they were handed a lifeline after Dan Cottle was adjudged to have been brought down just inside the area. Simon Prangley made no mistake sending the keeper the wrong way and sparked Town back into life. Both sides had further opportunities to clinch it but a draw proved to be the fair result.

Saturday 30th March

Toolstation Western League Premier: Hengrove Athletic 0-4 Bradford Town

Town made it two away wins on the trot as they eventually proved too strong for lowly Hengrove. 

The game began as a tight affair with neither side able to create any clear cut chances. Will Hailston tested the goalkeeper first for Bradford and Charlie Maddison came close to heading home a corner as the game began to open up. Hengrove created the best chance of the half when a corner was flicked down from a corner only for the Athletic forward to fire over the bar from close range. 

The hosts continued to create chances at the start of the second half until Bradford finally made the breakthrough. Great work from Dan Cottle saw Matt Morris played through who delicately lobbed the ball over the keeper from close range. Hengrove then squandered another golden chance to level before Town doubled their lead. Roles were reversed when Morris’s cross was tapped home by Cottle. Lee Davidson added a third when his cross-shot from the left wing evaded everyone to find the bottom corner. The icing on the cake was added just before full time when a Morris free kick was deflected in putting Town back in touching distance of the top six.

Saturday 23rd March

Toolstation Western League Premier: Clevedon Town 0-2 Bradford Town

Bradford got back to winning ways with a solid away victory at 6th placed Seasiders. 

The home side started brightly squandering a couple of good early chances before Bradford began to gain momentum midway through the half. Leon Greenland, Jack Witcombe and Matt Morris all peppered the Clevedon goal with shots and just before the interval Charlie Maddison broke the deadlock with a fine header from Morris’s corner kick. 

The second half proved equally entertaining with Clevedon pressing from the start. Tom Stocks cleared well from a corner before Bradford stabilised and began to look for a second. Morris clipped the crossbar with an audacious chip from the edge of the area before setting up Witcombe who saw his attempt cleared agonisingly off the line. The game was finally put to bed shortly afterwards however when the industrious Morris had his shot parried only as far as Will Hailston who made no mistake from the rebound and sent the Blue Army behind the goal into raptures. The only downside from the afternoon was the red card awarded to Witcombe in the dying minutes after he was adjudged to be the last man when bringing down a Clevedon forward but it was an inspiring performance from the Town.

Saturday 16th March

Toolstation Western League Premier: Bradford Town 2-2 Buckland Athletic

Town responded to last week’s drubbing with an improved performance in the return fixture against their Devon opponents. 

The game could not have started worse for Town when they fell behind after 5 minutes after Ryan Bush headed home unopposed at the back post. Bradford showed character however to bounce back almost immediately when Leon Greenland burst forward and crossed to Martin Lenihan to tap home and level the scores.  

After the break Town took the lead through a well worked move releasing Dan Cottle who finished in style. The gusty conditions at Trowbridge Road made it hard going for much of the second half. Despite being reduced to ten men, the visitors struck on 85 minutes to claim a point when Bush got his second of the game lifting the ball neatly over Jordan Dibble from close range.

Saturday 9th March

Toolstation Western League Premier: Buckland Athletic 4-1 Bradford Town

Bradford suffered a reverse of the scoreline they inflicted on Brislington last when when they were soundly beaten at Homers Heath. 

Despite starting brightly on a heavy surface, sloppy defending gave Buckland a lead when Austen Booth swanned through the Town back line and slot home for Athletic. The home side doubled their lead when a fine cross was headed home by Rich Groves. Bradford could not deal with Buckland’s dangerous crosses and on 25 minutes Groves headed in his second at the back post from a lethal Matt Roberts centre. Buckland could have been four up at the break but Town had Jordan Dibble to thank who saved a Groves penalty kick denying him a first half hat-trick.

Town finally got a grip on the game after the interval and their pressure paid off when Will Hailston found the net on 78 minutes. It was too little too late for the visitors though and in the dying seconds Buckland added a fourth consigning Town to their second heaviest defeat of the season.

Saturday 2nd March

Toolstation Western League Premier: Brislington 1-4 Bradford Town

Town recorded a comprehensive away win in a blistering second half performance at Ironmould Lane. 

Bradford took the lead early in the first half with a coolly taken Simon Prangley spot kick after Will Hailston was brought down by the Brislington goalkeeper. The home side levelled against the run of play when a well saved free-kick fell kindly to Briz who’s forward converted the rebound.

Bucking a previous trend, Bradford were quick out of the blocks in the second half and Dan Cottle restored the Blues’ lead heading home a Matt Morris corner. Town turned on the style and made it 3-1 when club captain Martin Lenihan crossed for Hailson to tap the ball in. A fine performance was wrapped up when Lewis Powell came off the bench to score.

Saturday 23rd February

Toolstation Western League Premier: Bradford Town 0-0 Odd Down

Bradford recorded only their second goalless draw of the season as no one could break the deadlock in this local derby. 

Bradford had the best of the first half with Martin Lenihan, Matt Morris and James Maddison all coming close. Town were also considered unlucky not to have been awarded a penalty when forward Lewis Powell was clattered by the Odd Down goalkeeper.

The second half began with a straight red card for Town’s Lee Davidson and chances became few and far between. Odd Down came close in the last minute when a free-kick struck the post and Morris almost snatched a win for the home side at the death only to see his shot go inches wide.

Saturday 16th February

Toolstation Western League Premier: Cribbs 2-1 Bradford Town

Cribbs inflicted the second defeat 2-1 defeat for Bradford in as many weeks in an absorbing contest at The Lawns. 

Bradford took the lead early in the first half through excellent play by Dan Cottle who played through Will Hailston who finished coolly. Town had the ball in the net again only for Cottle’s converted cross to be ruled out for offside before Cribbs turned the game on its head with two stunning strikes after the break from Spiller and Oakley.

Town also suffered an injury to Leon Greenland and a sending off for Dan Cottle who was shown two yellow cards in an ultimately frustrating afternoon.

Saturday 9th February

Toolstation Western League Premier: Bradford Town 1-2 Plymouth Parkway

Bradford were left to rue missed opportunities as they suffered their first defeat of 2019 against a resurgent Parkway. 

With kick-off delayed by half an hour due to the visitor’s coach breaking down, Town started quickly out of the blocks.  Within the first 10 minutes, Will Hailston controlled a ball over the top and beat the keeper only to see the ball cannon agonisingly off the post. Bradford continued to press and their work almost paid off when fine trickery by Dan Cottle in the box won a penalty after being tripped in the box. Hailston’s spot-kick was saved however by Kyle Moore and Morris’ thunderous rebound strike was straight at the Parkway no.1 before bounced away to safety. Town had a strong shout for another penalty which were waved away and that proved to be the turning point. Parkway began to show their class and got the sucker punch just before half time when Jordan Annear capitalised on some slack Town defending.

Parkway’s momentum continued after the break as Bradford struggled to get going and the visitors doubled their lead through a fine Jordan Trott strike. This seemed to knock to knock the stuffing out of Bradford for a period as Parkway began to dominate. The home side dug in however and their persistence was rewarded with 10 minutes to go when Lee Davidson snuck in at the back post and fired a right-footed shot in to the roof of the net from a Matt Morris corner. Bradford laid siege to the visitor’s goal but the Devon side stood firm and continued their march up the table.

Saturday 2nd February

Toolstation Western League Premier: Bradford Town 3-2 Bridport

A second half comeback earned Bradford all three points in a topsy-turvy battle at Trowbridge Road. 

Despite early Bradford chances the away side landed the first blow on 21 minutes with a stunning top corner strike by Braeden Hymes from outside the box which gave Town debutant ‘keeper Dan Nolan no chance. Bradford continued to press and got their reward seven minutes later when some intricate passing put Will Hailston through who coolly slotted home. As the game settled down it was the visitors who took a surprise lead just before the half time whistle when slack defending allowed Declan Cornish to bundle the ball in. 

As the wind and rain picked up after the break, the game became scrappier with chances few and far between, until Bradford moved up a gear in the second period of the half and began to turn the screw. Smart build up play fed the ball to Dan Cottle just inside the area who made no mistake in burying the leveller. The introduction of Reeko Best added gave the home side new impetus and it was he who after cutting in from the left, dinked the ball over the advancing keeper to give Bradford the lead on 77 minutes. Bridport battled to the end but Town held on for a well deserved victory.

Wednesday 16th January

Toolstation Western League Premier: Odd Down 1-1 Bradford Town

Bradford could only manage a point from their trip to Bath in a game where they should arguably have taken all three. 

Town took the lead early on when Will Hailston played through Matt Morris who outpaced his former team-mate Richie Chandler to slot under the goalkeeper. Odd Down responded soon after going close with a dangerous free-kick but it was the visitors who continued to press. Jamie Lyons’ tight angled shot struck the post and bounced clear before a Hailston strike was denied by the keeper’s legs. Just before the interval Hailston’s teasing cross requiring only the slightest of touches to put Town two ahead just evaded a flying Martin Lenihan.  

The first chance of the second period also fell to Bradford when Lee Davidson connected with a Morris corner at the back post only to be denied by a combination of defender and keeper. A Morris free-kick then went agonisingly close before Odd Down countered to punish Town with Ash McCrane’s 16th goal of the season. This led to a wave of pressure from the home side which Bradford resisted and could have clinched a win following a goalmouth scramble from a Lyons long throw, but both teams had to make do with the draw.

Saturday 12th January

Toolstation Western League Premier: Shepton Mallet 4-4 Bradford Town

Bradford salvaged a point with two goals in the last five minutes in a pulsating game at the Playing Fields. 

Bradford started brightly with a good chance missed by Jamie Lyons in the opening minutes and Will Hailston found the net only to be denied by the offside flag. Against the run of play it was Shepton who struck first when Francios Allen latched on to a through ball and finished well. The Blues’ continued pressure was rewarded before half time however through a familiar source when a Matt Morris free-kick found the net via a deflection.

The second half began with bang as Shepton re-took the lead when a free-kick was headed home, only to be cancelled out shortly afterwards when a defensive mistake allowed Jamie Lyons to sneak in and round the keeper to level for Town. The home side then appeared to be out of sight when Tyson Pollard’s top corner strike was followed by his second of the afternoon and Shepton led 4-2. Then came the comeback – a Morris cross was inadvertently turned in by a home defender and in the 90th minute a free-kick launched forward from the halfway line found Hailston who made it 4-4. Town could even have taken all three points when a scrabble in the box was only just cleared but the visitors can be pleased to have escaped with a point.

Saturday 5th January

Toolstation Western League Premier: Bradford Town 5-0 Cadbury Heath

Bradford produced a commanding performance to thrash a hapless Heath. 

Charlie Maddison opened the scoring early on converting a Will Hailston cross at close range giving Jay Powell in the visitors’ goal no chance. On 20 minutes the lead was doubled by Jamie Lyons turning the ball home from a Matt Morris cross at the near post. A fine long range drive from Charlie Maddison was tipped over the bar as the home side continued to press and a 25-yard Morris strike was only kept out by the post.

In the first minute of the second half, Town made it three when Martin Lenihan latched onto a Maddison through ball and slotted it home. In the last few minutes Bradford put the icing on the cake when Jacob Sloggett took the ball past two defenders from the edge of the box before calmly finding the back of the net to make it four. Reeko Best set up Will Hailston to register Town’s fifth with practically the last kick of the game capping off a marvellous performance from the Trowbridge Road men.

Saturday 29th December

Toolstation Western League Premier: Bradford Town 0-0 Bridgwater Town

Two sides played out an entertaining draw in which the Trowbridge Road men will feel they should have taken all three points. 

Jamie Lyons came closest to opening the scoring for the home side when his 25-yard piledriver cannoned back off the bar. This set the tone for the first half where Bradford continued to press with the energetic Dan Cottle being particularly lively up front. The number 10 almost put the Blues ahead midway through the half when he latched on to a through ball but could only drag his shot wide past the far post. 

Bridgwater came into the game more during the second period and always remained a threat with several incursions into the Bradford box. It was Town however who came closest again when Matt Morris’ speculative cross-shot beat the keeper only to bounce back off the bar. The Robins could have taken all three points at the death when a dangerous free-kick from the edge of the area beat the wall only for Adam Forster to turn the ball round the post.

Wednesday 26th December

Toolstation Western League Premier: Westbury United 0-1 Bradford Town

Bradford claimed a stunning win in the West Wiltshire derby and inflicted the first defeat of the season on their hosts. 

The contest got off to flying start in front of a bumper crowd at Meadow Lane as Westbury were awarded a penalty when Jamie Lyons handled Will Stead’s header in the box. Dan Kovaks could only produce a weak strike however which Adam Foster easily saved and spurred on the visitors. A spell of Town pressure was rewarded on 21 minutes when they earned a free-kick outside of the area. Matt Morris showed his quality again from this range as he expertly curled the ball into the top right corner of the net giving Ed Baldy no chance. Forster was called into action just before the break to keep out a long range strike as Westbury ratcheted up the pressure.  

This tetchy affair continued in the same vain during the second period as Town did their best to break up the play and preserve their fragile lead. United almost retained their unbeaten run when Ricky Hulbert headed against the bar late on. The hosts’ frustration was compounded in the last minute when substitute Jordan Pinder received a second yellow card and Bradford hung on for a fine victory.

Saturday 22nd December

Toolstation Western League Premier: Bradford Town 1-0 Hengrove Athletic

Bradford managed to chalk up a win for Christmas against a tenacious Hengrove who belied their lowly league position. 

Despite controlling the game for the opening 20 minutes Bradford were to create no real clear cut chances as the visitors stood firm. The first real opportunity came when Jamie Lyons turned and shot on the edge of the box only for the Hengrove no.1 Carl Bush to acrobatically tip the ball on to the bar and away to safety.

Just four minutes after the break Town finally got the breakthrough when a fine ball from James Rustell on the wing found Jake Slogett who calmly lifted the ball over the excellent Bush and into the net. Rather than leading to an opening of the floodgates it was Hengrove who dug in and rallied putting Bradford under real pressure. Reece John went close with a free kick that Adam Forster saved well and John Durbin’s men could’ve levelled at the death from a long throw which was only just turned wide.

Saturday 15th December

Toolstation Western League Premier: Bitton 2-2 Bradford Town

Despite taking a two goal lead, Bradford had to settle for a point at a wet and windy Recreation Ground. 

Town got off to a dream start when Will Hailston put the visitors ahead inside five minutes. The first half was capped off on 43 minutes when captain Martin Lenihan capitalised on a loose ball to make it 2-0.  

The second half saw the game turn on its head as Bitton halved the deficit on 47 minutes through Dean Griffiths. On 57 minutes Town’s lead was then eradicated when Josh Egan left footed drive found the bottom corner of the net. It stayed two a piece for the remainder of the game as Town held on for a well earned draw.   
(Attendance: 61)

 

Saturday 7th December

Toolstation Western League Premier: Bradford Town 2-0 Roman Glass St George

In horrendous weather conditions Bradford got back to winning ways with a solid home performance. 

The visitors landed the first blow of the contest inside six minutes after a long throw found Ryan Radford in the box who’s shot was brilliantly blocked by Lee Davidson in the Town defence. Bradford then started to get on top with the wind at their backs and from an inswinging corner Dan Price’s powerful header crashed off the bar. Dan Cottle then broke free down the left and his cross found Jamie Lyons at the far post only for Matthew Turner to smother the shot. The deadlock was broken however on the half hour Jack Witcombe found space and fired and unstoppable shot to ensure the home side went in 1-0 up at the break.
 
The second half was the casulty of the wind with both sides finding it difficult to find any rhythm. Ibrahim Sarr had a couple of speculative efforts from distance for the visitors but none troubled Adam Forster in the home goal. With half an hour gone in the second half Bradford created the best move of the game when Morris played a cross field ball to Reeko Best, laying off to Jamie Lyons who’s cross found Cottle only for the Town forward to be upended on the edge of the box. Matt Morris expertly curled the resulting free-kick into the top corner doubling Town’s advantage. In the last five minutes the visitors had a chance to reduce the arrears only for Joseph Swift’s shot to be was deflected wide. Bradford ended the game worthy winners recording their first league victory since October.

Saturday 1st December

FA Vase 3rd Round: Bradford Town 1-3 Baffins Milton Rovers

Bradford were comprehensively dumped out of the FA Vase as Portsmouth-based Rovers of the Wessex Premier Division proved too strong for an out of sorts Town. 

The opening period of the game was a tight affair with the visitors looking the sharper of the two sides. Rovers began to create chances as they made regular incursions into from the right wing causing Bradford difficulties one of which resulted in free header from close range being headed wide. The best chance of the half however was Bradford’s when a defensive mistake saw the ball loop up to Will Hailston who could not quite direct his header goalwards from almost in front of the upright.  
 
If the first half was an even encounter the second was anything but as Baffins raced out of the blocks. Their opening goal came minutes into the half when they sliced through the Bradford defence squaring the ball for Callum Dart to finish from close range. Immediately from the kick off Bradford put together their finest move of the game when a loose ball rolled kindly for the onrushing Matt Morris who’s first time thunderous shot bounced agonisingly off the base of the post to safety. Moments later, excellent work from Morris again down the right delivered a pinpoint cross to Hailston who failed to make adequate contact from five yards out guiding the ball wide of the far post. 

Baffins punished Town’s inability to take their chances when Dart netted his second of the afternoon and the game was sealed by Ashton Leigh who made it 3-0. In the dying embers of the game Rustell scored his first goal for Town but by that point was nothing more than a consolation.

Saturday 24th November

Toolstation Western League Premier: Bradford Town 1-2 Willand Rovers

Bradford came out second best in an entertaining match where Willand showed their promotion credentials. 

Bradford started the game brightly enjoying the majority of possession with Matt Morris pulling a shot just wide on three minutes and Dan Cottle having a tame shot saved. On ten minutes Town’s early pressure paid off when Will Hailston pounced on a mix up in the visitors’ defence and coolly rounded the keeper to slot the ball home. That seemed to spark Willand into life and it took a fine last gasp challenge by Thomas Stocks and a point blank save from Adam Forster to maintain Bradford’s lead. Rovers pulled level on fifteen minutes however, when a rash challenge by Dan Price gifted the visors a spot kick and Josh Searle calmly sent Forster the wrong way. Almost from the restart a mix up in the Willand defence saw Morris’s looping goal-bound shot cleared off the line by an acrobatic over head kick from Angus Wilson ensuring the scores remained level at half time. 

Willand commanded the second half with plenty of possession and looked the most likely to score. Hailston did have a golden chance but blazed his shot over the bar. With five minutes remaining Bradford created another good chance but failed to convert from which Willand went straight up the other end and Dean Stamp smashed the ball home from the left hand side of the box to give the visitors the lead. Bradford launched everything at Willand in the remaining minutes but could not find a way through the resolute defence.

Saturday 18th November

Toolstation Western League Premier: Bradford Town 1-1 Hallen

It took a dramatic last minute equaliser for Bradford to rescue a point with nine men in a fiery affair at Trowbridge Road. 

In a scrappy opening period Bradford suffered an early blow when Matt Jones was stretchered off with a serious leg injury. Neither side really threatened until a Matt Morris free-kick forced a save from Liam McFarlane in the Hallen goal. Morris was soon in action at the other end when a Hallen free-kick on the edge of the box taken by Kyle Thomas deflected off the Town man giving Adam Forster no chance putting the visitors 1-0 up. 
 
Bradford started the second half brightly and enjoyed the majority of the possession. Jack Witcombe cut in from the right and fired a shot low which McFarlane gathered. Good work on the left saw Dan Cottle jink round two defenders and pull an inviting ball back across the box which failed to receive a final touch. Bradford were then reduced to ten men when Charlie Maddison was dismissed with a straight red card. Hallen came back into the game with Forster having to make a sharp save to his left and a Caelen Simpson shot went inches wide for the visitors. In the last five minutes Bradford were reduced to nine men when Witcombe was shown a red card but in the dying seconds of the game Town’s tenacity was rewarded when Morris put a delightful ball in from the right for Hailston to poke home and level the scores.

Wednesday 14th November

Wiltshire FA Senior Cup: Bradford Town 1-1 Salisbury (AET) Salisbury won 3-1 on penalties.

Bradford can take heart from a spirited performance giving Southern Premier League Whites a real scare.

Town could not have got off to a worse start when Claudio Herbert put the visitors ahead tapping in from 6 yards through some lax defending. Salisbury could have doubled their lead on numerous occasions but Bradford stood firm and got a foothold in the game with Matt Morris seriously testing Jake Hallet in the visitors’ goal. 
 
The second half saw the game turn on its head as it was Bradford who became the dominant side and eleven minutes in Town got their just reward when Morris converted a stinging low cross from Jake Hiscocks. Bradford had the chances to seal the game but at the final whistle it was penalties which would decide the outcome. Will Hailston converted the first spot kick but Morris, Charlie Maddison and Martin Lenihan were all thwarted by Hallet and Salisbury cruised through to the third round.

Toolstation Western League Premier: Plymouth Parkway 4-2 Bradford Town

Despite playing their part in this thoroughly entertaining encounter, Town failed to come away with any points on their longest league trip of the season. 

An enthralling first period saw the Devon side race into a two-goal lead with an Aaron Bentley brace as Town failed to deal with set-piece deliveries. Bradford rallied however and and came straight back into the game when Will Hailston guided in a sublime Matt Morris free-kick from close range. The scores were then levelled when Dan Cottle found the bottom corner when finishing off a classic Town move. Bradford were then briefly in the ascendency but it was the Plymouthians who struck again before the interval when Adam Carter headed home.  
 
The second half was a more attritional affair as Parkway tightened up and Town toiled for an elusive equaliser. The game was sealed when Mike Williams finished a flowing Parkway move shortly before the final whistle.

FA Vase 2nd Round: Brockenhurst 0-4 Bradford Town

Town stormed into the third round of the Vase with an accomplished performance at a scenic Grigg Lane. 

As has been a common theme in recent games, Town came out of the blocks strongly putting the home side under pressure from the off. It was however a long clearance from defender Matt Jones which set up the opening goal when Will Hailston latched on to the ball and rounded the keeper for his first of the afternoon. 
 
Straight after the restart Hailston doubled his tally when a corner went straight across the box and was turned in from short range. Brockenhurst played their part in the game putting Bradford under pressure but it was Town who sealed the match with their third when superb work out wide from Jake Sloggett was converted by Dan Cottle sending the travelling Blue Army into raptures. The gloss was put on the afternoon by Hailston late on who completed his hat-trick from the spot to seal a fine performance.

Saturday 27th October

Toolstation Western League Premier: Willand Rovers 1-1 Bradford Town

Bradford returned from Devon with a creditable draw against high-flying Willand and can consider themselves unfortunate not to have grabbed all three points. 

Town came out firing from the off with newly signed front man Reeko Best troubling the Rovers defence on a number of occasions. The breakthrough finally came on 33 minutes with Will Hailstone on target for the visitors.
 
Fortunate to only be one goal down at the break, Willand began to stamp their authority on the game and drew level on 76 minutes when David Steel deflected the ball in to give Adam Forster no chance. In the closing stages either side could have taken the spoils but it remained honours even at full time.

Saturday 20th October

Toolstation Western League Premier: Bradford Town 3-0 Clevedon Town

Bradford made it three wins on the bounce under new manager Wayne Thorne with a 3-0 victory over promotion challengers Clevedon Town. 

The visitors had the first real chance of the game when Jack Sell found himself infront of an open goal only for Ashton Shanley to somehow clear the ball off the line. Clevedon were in the ascensdency with Alex Camm hitting a shot straight at Adam Forster and Lucus Vowles seeing his shot just shave the post. It took fifteen minutes for Bradford to create an opening when Dan Cottle found space in the box but couldn’t keep his shot down. Both Will Hailstone and Martin Lenihan then had efforts sail over the bar in a matter of minutes for Bradford. The deadlock was broken five minutes before the break when Charlie Maddison on his Bradford debut created some space in the box and smashed home to make it 1-0 at half time.
 
Bradford started the second half the strongest and Cottle had a chance to double the lead after a crossfield ball from Shanley found him on back post only for Elliot Nicholson to turn the ball wide. Matt Morris then made a darting run from wide who’s fizzing shot was tipped over by Connor Sidley-Adams. Morris was influential in the second for Bradford, chasing a loose ball across the Clevedon box which led to a mix up between keeper and defender saw Lenihan coolly slot the ball home. With fifteen minutes remaining a smart one-two between Cottle and Hailston saw the latter calmly finish to secure all three points for a resurgent Town.

Wiltshire FA Senior Cup 1st Round: Corsham Town 1-3 Bradford Town

Bradford made it safely through to the 2nd Round after coming back from a goal behind at Southbank. 

Corsham took the lead in the first half against the run of play only for Town to level shortly after through a neat Will Hailston finish. Central defender Matt Jones put the visitors in front before the break finishing off some smart work by the industrious Jake Sloggett out wide. The game was secured in the second period when a classic Bradford move was turned in by Dan Cottle to give the side their second win on the bounce.
 
Town also welcomed back Bradford boy and fans favourite Matt Morris to the club this week from Frome Town. Matty becomes the third player to return to Trowbridge Road from the Robins this season following Dan Cottle and Will Hailston who re-joined in September.

Saturday 13th October

Toolstation Western League Premier: Wellington 1-3 Bradford Town

Town registered a much needed win at a blustery Playing Fields signalling a perfect start to the Wayne Thorne era.

It was Wellington who drew first blood after just five minutes when a long range Joe Chamberlain strike beat Adam Forster with the aid of a deflection. After consistent Bradford pressure the tide turned just before the interval when Jacob Sloggett finally found the breakthrough to level for the visitors. Wellington were then reduced to 10 men when Tom Hawkings saw red for a bad challenge prior to the half time whistle.
 
On 62 minutes Dan Price headed home a corner off the underside of the bar and the victory was finally sealed when Jason Henley curled home his first goal for the club after 85 minutes. The result ends Town’s five game losing streak and should give the team much-needed confidence going into Wednesday’s Wiltshire Senior Cup match at Corsham Town.

Toolstation Western League Premier: Chipping Sodbury 2-1 Bradford Town

Bradford could not arrest their dreadful run of form as they slipped to a fifth consecutive defeat in Gloucestershire. 

The hosts took the lead with a screaming long range strike midway through the first half and doubled their advantage straight after the break. Town Captain Martin Lenihan pulled a goal back for the visitors but despite laying siege to the Sods’ goal in the last few minutes were unable to find a leveller.

Saturday 29th September

Toolstation Western League Premier: Bradford Town 1-2 Shepton Mallet

Bradford continued their torrid run after being condemned to their fourth defeat in a row in a match between two teams who before today were struggling with form.

Town started positively with plenty of possession but no penetration and it was twenty minutes before either team had a chance to note when Ashton Shanley curled a freekick just wide of the post. That seemed to spark Shepton into life and for the next ten minutes it was only due to a string of impressive saves from Adam Forster in the Bradford goal that the scores remained level.
 
Shepton begain the second half on top again and after 57 minutes Conrad Peck found himself unmarked in the penalty area, slotting the ball home to give the visitors a deserved lead. Five minutes later Tyson Pollard had the chance to double the lead but fired well over. Bradford could not find any sort of rhythm to their play and were devoid of creativity.
 
With 15 minutes remaining Dale Hunt found himself with plenty of time to stroke the ball past the on-rushing Forster and double the visitor’s lead. Bradford did manage a consolation goal at the death when Dan Price converted a long ball from Leon Greenland. Town even had a chance to grab an unlikely point with the last kick of the game but Shanley’s free-kick to sailed harmlessly over the bar ending a very disappointing September for the Blues.

Tuesday 25th September

Les Phillips Cup: Cheddar 2-1 Bradford Town

Bradford crashed out of the League Cup in an eventful match at Bowdens Park.

The first half saw both sides creating clear chances with hosts’ Adam Jones heading against the bar early on. It was Town who broke the deadlock first however with Martin Johnson registering his first goal of the season after a composed finish from close range. The home side then struck the woodwork for a second time before equalising just before the interval when Kris Bell latched onto a through ball and slotted home.
 
Cheddar built on this momentum and took the lead after the break when Nathan Best pounced on a loose ball following a corner. From then on nothing went Bradford’s way as the visitors found the net on three occasions only to be denied by the offside flag. The Cheesemen then successfully resisted Town’s late assault and progressed to the next round.

 

Saturday 22nd September

Toolstation Western League Premier: Bridgwater Town 6-2 Bradford Town

Free-scoring Bridgwater Town maintained their impressive start to the season with a comfortable home win over Bradford Town.

Town began brightly but were quickly overrun by a rampant Robins who scored four in a dominant first half including a brace from Jack Taylor.
 
Dan Cottle gave the visitors a glimmer of hope with a fine strike just after half time but two more Bridgwater goals quashed any hopes of a fightback. Jack Witcombe’s late consolation providing little comfort for the travelling Blue Army on a damp day in Somerset.

Saturday 15th September

Toolstation Western League Premier: Bradford Town 0-2 Wellington

Bradford slumped to their second home defeat of the season and had no one to blame apart from themselves.

Town started with the majority of possession and on seven minutes a well worked corner from the right saw Dan Price rise for a header but couldn’t generate enough power to trouble the keeper. On half an hour a Martin Lenihan free kick was whipped into the box and met by Dan Cottle but was again comfortably dealt with by the visitor’s man between the posts. Wellingtons best chance came just before the break when Jack Bryant’s free kick was tipped over the bar by Adam Forster.

After the interval Wellington began to get a hold on the game and on 62 minutes Josh Wadman was allowed to run across the penalty area and smash the ball into the net giving Forster no chance. Five minutes later Bryant again produced a spectacular effort only for Forster to somehow push the ball onto the bar. Town had to thank the woodwork again shortly afterwards when Tom Hawkins saw his effort come back off the bar as the visitors began to turn the screw. In the closing stages Wellington were gifted a second when a misplaced ball across the box fell for Wadman to claim his second of the game. A disappointing performance from Bradford who will need to show a marked improvement when they travel to table topping Bridgwater next week.

Saturday 8th September

Toolstation Western League Premier: Bradford Town 1-0 Brislington

Town came away with all three points in what was a tense and tight affair at Trowbridge Road.

Jake Hiscocks created the first opening for the home side on 21 minutes when his shot was well saved by Chris Humphries in the Brislington goal. Five minutes later it was Briz who had the opportunity to take the lead only for Ricky Chandler to blaze his shot over the bar. Bradford then began to take control of the game and a fine passing move ended with Captain Martin Lenihan lifting his shot just over the bar.

With five minutes of the half remaining Town finally broke through Brislington’s resolute defence. Lenihan was involved again when his cross to the back post was headed back across goal by Leon Greenland for Jack Witcombe to tap in from five yards.
 
The second half continued to be characterised by scrappy play with Bradford inviting Brislington forward. With breakaway chances missed by Will Hailston and Dan Cottle it was backs to the wall defending from Town as the visitors threw everything forward in search of an equaliser. Oaklan Buck fired wide from a good position and in the last move of the game Brislington could only find the side netting ensuring Bradford escaped with three valuable points.

Saturday 1st September

Toolstation Western League Premier: Bradford Town 2-1 Shortwood United

The first ever meeting between these sides produced a narrow victory for the home side.

Town created the first chance when Captain Martin Lenihan was put through but failed to trouble Davies in the visitors’ goal. Shortwood then had a good chance themselves only for Josh Beadle to fire over.

On the half hour mark the home side’s mounting pressure finally told when Dan Cottle played in Will Hailston to score on his Bradford return. Ashton Shanley nearly doubled the lead two minutes later but saw his excellent free kick come back off the upright. Town then doubled their lead when the two returning men combined again on 35 minutes – Cottle’s miss-hit shot fell for Hailston to tap home for his second.
 
Shortwood began to show more belief in the second period and it took a string of important saves from Forster to protect Bradford’s two goal lead. Midway through the half Shortwood believed they had broken through when Matthews’ shot nestled in the net only to see the flag raised on the far side. With ten minutes remaining the visitors finally halved the arrears when Jamie Walker’s deflected shot beat Forster.

That lead to a nervy last ten minutes but Bradford held on to take all three points and their third league win of the season.

Saturday 25th August

FA Cup Preliminary Round: Bradford Town 0-1 Paulton Rovers

Bradford Town exited the FA Cup at the Hands of Paulton Rovers in the cruellest of fashions with an 85th minute goal against the run of play.

Bradford started the game brightly though it was Paulton who created the first real opening on twelve minutes when Ben Withey found space but could only shoot straight at Adam Forster in the home goal. With quarter of an hour on the clock Rhys Talmash should have put the home side ahead with a golden opportunity but hit his close range shot straight at keeper Brown. Paulton then had a good passage of play and Liam Monelle brought another smart save from Forster in an entertaining first period. 
 
Paulton began the second half well after making a couple of changes, but it was Bradford who had the best chance in the opening exchanges with Jack Witcombe forcing another save from Brown. Town continued to press and could have taken the lead when Lenihan won the ball back on the left hand side, squared the ball into box for Witcombe who was inches away with a sliding effort. It was then all Bradford as they piled on pressure with Witcombe hitting the post and Lenihan having a header cleared off the line. In the dying moments of the game Paulton had a rare attack and the ball was squared across goal for Monelle to finish from close range. Heartbreak for Bradford at the final whistle.

Wednesday 18th August

Toolstation Western League Premier: Cadbury Heath 1-4 Bradford Town

Following a creditable draw away at Bridport on Saturday, Bradford stormed to victory at Cadbury Heath on Wednesday evening.

Things couldn’t have started worse however when Thomas Stocks was adjudged to have handled the ball in the box to concede a sixth minute spot kick for the hosts. Matt Huxley stepped up to coolly beat Adam Forster in the Bradford goal to put Heath one up. Town appeared unfazed by the early setback with Dan Price heading just wide from a pin point Ashton Shanley cross ten minutes in. Bradford continued to press going down the slope and a long throw from Luke Curtis found Martin Lenihan unmarked in the box but he could only direct his header straight at Sam Thompson in the Heath goal. 

Shanley was again the creator on twenty five minutes when another testing free kick into the area found Jack Witcombe who guided the ball past Thompson to level the scores. Witcombe created further trouble for the host on the half hour mark when he jinked into the box and was tripped earning Bradford a spot kick of their own. Lenihan stepped up and smashed the ball home giving Thompson no chance. On the stroke of half time Forster pulled off a very important save to preserve Town’s advantage at the break.
 
Heath came out in the second half trying to take advantage of the slope and had a great chance to level the match when Eugene Keary found himself unmarked in the penalty area but couldn’t keep his header down. Ten minutes into the second half Bradford scored the best goal of the evening. Luke Curtis latched onto a clearance wide on the left, beating the first defender and found Mark Robinson. He laid the ball back to Witcombe who in turn teed up Jake Hiscocks who dispatched the ball smartly into the Heath net. 

The home side then started to push men forward to try and salvage something from the game. With half an hour remaining Huxley thought his looping header was goal bound but Forster had other ideas and managed to tip the ball over the bar in another fine performance from the young shot stopper. Heath continued to press but the resolute Bradford defence kept them at bay. A minute before the final whistle Hiscocks again found himself with space on the edge of the box and his left foot shot nestled in the corner of Thompson’s net to make the final score 4-1 to Bradford. This impressive Town display should give them the confidence they need going into the FA Cup tie on Saturday.

Saturday 18th August

Toolstation Western League Premier: Bridport 2-2 Bradford Town

Bradford Town travelled to Bridport for their first away fixture of the season and were under pressure from the start. 

In under two minutes Mark Salter latched on to a through ball for the home side but could only fire the ball straight at Adam Forster in the Bradford goal. It took fifteen minutes for Town to create any sort of chance but Mark Robinson couldn’t get enough contact on a through ball. Five minutes later Nathan Loader conceded a free kick and was shown a soft yellow card but that was not the only punishment – from the resulting free kick Bradford failed to clear their lines and Leighton Thomas netted from close range to give the Bees the lead.
 
This seemed to fire Bradford into life. Two minutes later Jacob Sloggett was brought down outside the box and Ashton Shanley stepped up to dispatch the ball into the top right hand corner giving home keeper James Smith no chance. Seven minutes before the break, Dan Price was adjudged to have handled a shot by Oscar Latas and Bridport’s Mark Salter lashed the resulting penalty home to make it 2-1 to the home side. Bradford once again bounced back as Smith was called into action when Robinson’s shot had him scrambling across the box. Minutes later the Bees keeper could only watch as a Sloggett shot bounced squarely back off the upright and away to safety.

Bradford started the second half brightly and within a minute the impressive Sloggett was brought down in the box for a penalty from which Martin Lenihan stepped up and coolly slotted the ball into the right corner of the net. Unfortunately this was Sloggett’s last contribution as he left the field with an injured ankle. Both sides had opportunities to snatch the winner. Thomas headed wide from a free kick for the hosts and Richard Hebditch drew a point blank save from Forster. 

Bradford also had chances with substitute Rhys Talmash, advancing rapidly on the home goal seeing his shot saved by Smith, only for the ball to ricochet back off of defender Andy Martin and away for a corner. With four minutes remaining Talmash could have sewn the points up for Bradford, but he shot horribly wide across an open goal to leave the game honours even at the final whistle.

FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round: Bradford Town 5-2 Roman Glass St George

After beginning the league season with a win and a defeat in their first two games, Town progressed to the FA Cup Preliminary Round for the first time in three seasons.

Bradford opened the scoring on nine minutes when Tyler Sibbick was played in by Ashton Shanley and Sibbick slotted the ball past Turner in visitors goal. Ten minutes later Ryan Radford capitalised on some sloppy defending by the home side to level the scores. Radford then put the visitors in front with a shot from close range. On the half hour the combination of Shanley and Sibbick again produced a fine goal when Sibbick lobbed the keeper from 18 yards to draw level at half time. 

The visitors were the better side in the opening exchanges of the second half and Bradford survived a couple of goal mouth scrambles. Bradford began to get back into game and on sixty nine minutes took the lead when Lenihan crossed to the far post and Mark Robinson completed the fine move by slamming the ball home. With ten minutes remaining Connor McKay was brought down and Sibbick had the chance to put the game beyond Glass but saw his penalty go wide of the post. The game was finally put out of reach when Jake Hiscocks played the ball across field to Conner McKay who wrong footed the defender and finished smartly. In the last minutes of the game Jacob Sloggett was bundled over in the box to give Bradford a second penalty and this time Lenihan fired the ball into the bottom corner to make it 5-2 and set up a home tie in the next round with Paulton Rovers.
