The fifth volume in the BANTAMSPAST ‘HISTORY REVISITED’ series covers the twentieth century rivalry of Bradford City and Bradford Park Avenue, continuing the story of their rivalry as rugby clubs narrated in ROOM AT THE TOP and LIFE AT THE TOP published last year.
The intention is that WOOL CITY RIVALS – which could as easily be described as FALL FROM THE TOP – will provide a definitive record of the City / Avenue rivalry and contain a considerable collection of memorabilia and relics of the two clubs. Whilst most of the research has been completed, considerable work is needed to finalise the design and artwork. If anyone has interesting examples of memorabilia that could be featured I am very keen to hear from you.
