Reiterating the message that the weeks of action convey throughout, the board addressed all types of issues surrounding the modern game while also discussing achievements they have made during their chosen careers.
On the same day, in an event co-ordinated by Springwood Community Primary school learning mentor Khalil Hussain, Bradford flew the One Game, One Community flag by hosting a six-a-side tournament involving eight primary schools from around the area.
In association with Bradford City FC and some of the city’s leading community groups, club captain and Kick It Out ambassador Zesh Rehman attended the competition as it celebrated its 10th year as an annual weeks of action event.
