Bradford City AFC is delighted to announce the appointment of Andy Kiwomya as the club’s new performance coach.
The former City star - who played an integral part in the club’s memorable promotion-winning 1995/96 campaign - returns to the Utilita Energy Stadium on a full-time basis.
Kiwomya previously served as performance coach of Huddersfield Town, helping the Terriers embark on a 43-game unbeaten run, and has also filled similar conditioning roles at the likes of Manchester City, Leeds United and Nottingham Forest.
The 54-year-old will work closely with manager Derek Adams, alongside the club’s current performance department.
He will be in the dugout for the first time tomorrow evening, when the Bantams play host to Colchester United (7.45pm).
Kiwomya said: “First and foremost, I want to say thank you to Derek Adams for this opportunity. I will endeavour, as always, to do my very best for this club and its fantastic supporters.
“It is an exciting opportunity, which I felt I could not pass up, and am now just looking forward to getting stuck into the job, and supporting the manager and backroom staff as best as I can.
“My previous role has meant I have been able to see a lot of the players already this season, and I arrive with a clear idea on the things I would like to implement, alongside the rest of our performance department, over time.
“I would like say a big thank you to all the City supporters for the love they have shown me over the years, and I hope to repay that as part of this special club once again.
“It is great to be back in the Bradford City family again, and I cannot wait to see you all back at Valley Parade tomorrow night.”
City manager Adams said: “I am delighted to be welcoming Andy to Bradford City AFC as part of our backroom team.
“Andy has excellent experience, not only as a performance coach but also as a player, and this knowledge will hopefully add lots to our armoury for the remainder of the season and beyond.
“This knowledge and expertise will add value to the backroom staff, which I am sure we will see short and long-term benefits of.
“We all look forward to working with Andy, who is already held in such high regard at this club, and cannot wait to see the reception you will give him tomorrow night.”
