Bradford City AFC has today parted company with manager Derek Adams.

Adams arrived at the Utilita Energy Stadium in June. Since then, he has taken charge of 37 competitive fixtures, resulting in nine victories, 13 defeats and 15 draws. 

The club’s chief executive officer, Ryan Sparks, said: “On behalf of the board, it is with deep regret that we have come to the decision to part company with Derek Adams. 

“A sustained period of consideration has led to this decision and it is felt that, with all things taken into account, the club must move in a different direction with regards to the role of first-team manager.

“We would like to thank Derek for his efforts while at Valley Parade, and wish him the very best for the future.”

Assistant manager Mark Trueman will take caretaker charge of first-team affairs with immediate effect, overseeing Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two match against Oldham Athletic.
