Headmaster James Lockwood of Woodhouse Grove School, based in Apperley Bridge, West Yorkshire, has been appointed as an Honorary Bradford City Football Club Ambassador.


James (pictured above) has been Headmaster of Woodhouse Grove since January 2016 and is a former pupil of the school. Throughout his teaching career, he has been heavily involved in the coaching of sport; particularly rugby union and cricket.


James is a lifelong Bantams fan, having grown up in the area and followed the Club for nearly forty years. It is, therefore, not surprising that Woodhouse Grove enjoys such a strong relationship with Bradford City and is very proud to be an official Club Partner.


James Mason, Bradford City Chief Operating Officer, said: “We have a number of Ambassadors at the football club that represent both a mix of the business and wider community of Bradford.  They each play a vital role in representing the club in their own working lives but also on match days home and away following the team.

"Having James now on board can only assist Bradford City in our outreach programme to engage with key members within our society. 

"Woodhouse Grove and Bradford City go hand in hand together with the training base at Apperley Bridge which has been synonymous with the club for many years. To build this closer link shows that this partnership has passed the test of time and can only grow going forward.”


Following his invitation to become Bradford City Ambassador, James Lockwood said: “It is a great privilege to have the opportunity to represent Bradford City as a Club Ambassador. Woodhouse Grove enjoys a very close relationship with the Club and I am sure that this partnership will continue to flourish in the future. 

"As a lifelong supporter, I am very much looking forward to working closely with the Club and engaging with the whole Bradford City community.”
