'The Chief' Departs Bradford City

Coach Wayne Allison leaves to take up role at the FA.

Bradford City coach Wayne Allison has left the Coral Window's Stadium to take up a position at the Football Association.

The 43-year-old has been installed as Research Manager (Coaching) with the FA and will start in January.

The former Sheffield United striker joined the Bantams back in July, under former manager Peter Jackson, to work with both the development and first teams squads.

Allison said: "I'm obviously looking forward to my new role, but I'll leave here with some good memories."

"Phil [Parkinson] has been extremely supportive and has been a great manager to work for. I'd like to wish him and the lads all the very best for the rest of the season and I'd also like to thank both chairmen for giving me the opportunity to work at the football club."

In a statement, the club thanked him for his work, and wished him 'the very best for the future'.
