The funeral of Neil Matthews will be held at Park Wood Crematorium, Elland, on Friday June 2.

Academy manager of Bradford City since 2019, Neil sadly passed away earlier this month aged 56, following a battle with cancer.

Beginning at 2.15pm at Park Wood Crematorium, all are welcome at the service, which will see Neil's family, loved ones and former colleagues in attendance, alongside club officials.

Afterwards, attendees will then be invited to The Shay, home of FC Halifax Town, where Neil made over 100 appearances as a player throughout the 1980s and 90s.

Neil’s family have requested that all tributes at the service be kept to flowers from the family only, with all donations made to be pledged to Action for Sport
