It’s A Perfect Guiseley Return For Boss Bower

Mark Bower doesn’t think Christmas could have gone any better for Bradford (Park Avenue).

The leaders won 5-1 at Yorkshire rivals Guiseley - the manager’s former club.

It means their lead at the top of the National League North remains at three points after passing a big test with flying colours.

Bower spent three fantastic years at Nethermoor but friendships were put to one side on Boxing Day as his current employers ran riot.

“It was a perfect performance and result from my side,” the manager said after the crushing victory.

“I’ve got to say I am proud of every single one of them.

“This was a really difficult game against a good side but we stood up and we were counted. There are many positives to take.”

Bower added: “We are top of the league after beating a team as good as Guiseley 5-1 away from home.

“I’m delighted with how this season is going.”
