Since being signed from local rivals [email protected]@ds United by Paul Jewell, David Wetherall has been regarded as one of citys best ever defenders. Wether’s has shown amazing amount of loyalty as City plummeted through the leagues even turning down Championship clubs when it looked like there may not be a Bradford City.


Davids best moment came on the last day of the 99/00 season when he scored the goal against Liverpool that kept city in the Premiership for a second season. Since then many players have come and gone including Stuart McCall which meant that Wetherall became the new Captain, a role which he has filled brilliantly.

As with many players over the last few years Wether’s has been hit by injuries, but seems now to be over the worst of them and has this season managed to help Mark Bower (as with Andrew O’Brien before him) become an accomplished defender.

Personally I will always look at Wetherall as a great symbol for our time in the Premiership rather than players like Petrescu and Collymore. He has cemented his place in history and city fans hearts for his loyalty, ability, captaincy and not forgetting that goal!!!!
