Parkinson believes Bradford’s feat will never be repeated

Bradford City broke Aston Villa hearts last night after reaching the Capital One Cup final.

Despite losing 2-1 on the night, the League Two side made it through to next month’s Wembley showpiece winning 4-3 on aggregate.

The victory is simply a monumental effort by Phil Parkinson’s side, who have also knocked out Premier League side’s Arsenal and Wigan en-route to the final and who now face the prospect of Swansea or Chelsea to get their hands on the silverware.

Phil Parkinson was delighted at the final whistle and believes that the Bantams feat will never be repeated again:

“I think it’d take some doing for anyone to do this again.

“We had a really tough run. It wasn’t just the Premier League teams, we had tough games with Notts County and Watford too.”  BBC

The Bradford manager also believes their exploits this season will ensure they are remembered within the Yorkshire club’s history:

“These lads will be remembered in the history of Bradford City for years to come.

“There’s a 1911 lounge at the club to celebrate the cup victory of that year. Well, in years to come, there will be a lounge named after this cup run and these players because of what they’ve achieved.

“To go to Wembley is going to keep the club going for quite a while, I imagine. For the city of Bradford, it’s massive and I really feel that this can galvanise the area.”
