Parkin the Coach

22 February 2013

Three Bradford City take on the Parkin the Coach challenge

Bradford City stars have stepped up a gear in their preparation for the Capital One Cup Final, putting a supporters coach destined for Wembley through a series of unique parking tests.

Whilst the Bantams have no plans to 'park the bus' on Sunday, the challenge saw them instead 'Parkin the Coach' in a one-off football first.  Striker Nahki Wells and defenders Rory McArdle and Carl McHugh took turns to complete a football obstacle course before parking in a narrow bay, all under the watchful eye of first team coach Steve Parkin.

Infamous 'Bantams Banter' bloggers Tom and Dom led the running commentary and linesmen were on hand to flag when the players went over the line, with jet-heeled striker Nahki Wells taking the honours with a finishing time of one minute and four seconds.

The coach, now trialled and tested by the players, will be joining the Capital One Convoy -  a fleet of official supporters coaches - which will be providing free travel to the showpiece Final for over 1,000 Bradford City fans. 

Capital One is also funding coach travel for around 1,000 Swansea City fans heading to Wembley for the Capital One Cup Final on Sunday 24th February.
