Mark Trueman & Conor Sellars as Bradford City’s permanent managers

The pair have been appointed as Bradford City manager permanently.

Mark Trueman


Conor Sellars

have been handed the temporary role of managing the Sky Bet League Two club

Bradford City

in December. They have now signed a deal that will have them until the end of the 2021/22 season.

The duo, who started coaching the U18 when the 2018/19 campaign began, first accepted the role as joint-interim managers in late December, with first agreeing to take the role as caretaker manager and assistant on December 13.

Bradford City have since earned 24 points from 11 games, with seven wins, three draws, and one defeat.

Their latest win was a 2-0 victory over

Cheltenham Town

on Saturday, with

Andy Cook

scoring a brace.


Myself and Conor are obviously delighted, first and foremost, to have been given this opportunity

," said Trueman.


The players have taken to us really well. We have been pleased by how everyone is gelling and are looking forward to keeping that going.

"We are desperate to be successful and, now we have been given the chance to manage this club on a permanent basis, will do everything in our power to ensure that is the case.

Sellars added: "

Me and Mark have worked incredibly hard so far and have been given a brilliant opportunity by the club, which we are very excited about.

"When we first came in, we were confident in our ability to express our coaching methods. Thankfully, the job we have done so far has been deemed good enough to warrant the permanent appointment.

Bradford CEO Ryan Sparks said: "

I am absolutely delighted for Mark and Conor. Their promotion is thoroughly deserved.

"Life is about opportunities, and I think it goes without saying that Mark and Conor took theirs with both hands. They have worked extremely hard over the past couple of months and placed themselves in pole position for the job.

"We are fully confident they can continue to take us forward on the field, and they are living and breathing the culture we are working to create. They understand that mediocrity is something we will never again accept, and that every day we simply strive to move forward and achieve our goals."
