Huddersfield fan Young takes the sting out of Bradford


A Huddersfield fan by birth, Jake Young returned to Yorkshire to break Bradford City hearts.

A player touted as Premier League class by former Forest Green boss Mark Cooper, the former Sheffield United striker made an immediate impact as a second-half sub by smashing a virtuoso equaliser, claiming a point for his side in a 1-1 draw at Valley Parade.

“I was born in Huddersfield, so to score here and in front of the Bradford fans was a good feeling and it was a sweet moment. I had my family here, so it was good for them to see that.”

On netting his third goal of the season, he said: ” Ebou (Adams) has done really well to win it. I picked it up in the pocket and dodged a couple of tackles on the halfway line, I did try and slide Cads (Nicky Cadden) in – I got a lucky rebound, but once I got in front of goal I kept my cool and slid it past the keeper.”
