We are the champions!

25 March 2014

City's youth team have clinched the Football League Youth Alliance North East Division title this Tuesday afternoon after drawing with rivals Doncaster Rovers.

The Bantams' goalless draw with Doncaster, coupled with a 4-0 loss for Scunthorpe United at the hands of Notts County, meant City cannot now be caught at the top of the table.

Doncaster and Scunthorpe were City's only title rivals going into this afternoon's set of fixtures. Results today (Tuesday), however, mean that Scunthorpe are eleven points off City with only three games to play, while Doncaster are now seven points behind with only two matches to play.

This Tuesday's title success is a fitting reward for City's apprentices, who have led the way at the top of league since the very start of the season. They have won the title with three games of their league season to go having won fifteen and lost only two of their nineteen matches so far.

Even more impressively, the Bantams actually went through until 11 March unbeaten in the league. Their tremendous unbeaten run through until March incredibly saw City only drop two points throughout that period.

Unsurprisingly given their dominance this season, City have conceded the fewest goals in their league so far and scored the most - twelve more than Scunthorpe and Hartlepool United.

Fresh from their title success, City's youngsters will now look for victory in this Saturday's Youth Alliance (North Section) Cup Final with Hull City at the Coral Windows Stadium - kick off 11:00am.
