YAL Yorkshire Cup – First Round
Bradford United 3-2 Leeds Medics Reserves
Bradford United hosted Leeds Medics Reserves in the Yorkshire Cup. In typical Leeds Medics manner they worked tirelessly & made it difficult for us defending in numbers.
As what seems the norm these days; Bradford started slow which allowed Medics to gain a shock lead through a free kick. This seemed to wake the United ranks who started moving the ball in their usual manner which saw Juwara level in a well worked move. The rest of the half United dominate the ball like majority of the game but no avail as the Medics rearguard hung on.
A similar pattern arouse 2nd half. Bradford dominated for large parts which saw both team pick up a goal apiece however it required a last minute wonder striker from Mehmet to sink Medics hearts who deserved something. Your typical cup game; Bradford move on but Medics deserve much credit giving a very good account of themselves

Colton 0-2 Bradford United U23s
Another disappointing result for the u23s despite dominating most of the play. The boys did everything but score. Cotton had 2 chances which resulted in 2 goals. A big positive was seeing young Adil Khan make his debut after been promoted from the u21s. He looked very much at home. Its been a challenging start to the season for the team and the team are working hard to turn it around. The 23s have a cup game next week which will be great opportunity to get back to winning ways and hopefully go on a cup run.

Thornhill 3-2 Bradford United 21s
The lads started the game well taking an early lead through Zain with a good strike in the bottom corner however another mistake lead to Thornhill getting an equaliser and breaking their way into the game. HT 1-1
The lads just didn’t seem to get going in the first half however were awesome in many parts of the second. United controlled it from the off and took a deserved lead through a great strike from Mustafa 2-1. Two set pieces then took the game away from the boys. A deflected free kick ended up in the back of the net and then the sucker punch when it seemed to have been cleared off the line however the goal was given. Some missed chances and one rattled the post but wasn’t meant to be. FT 3-2
