It’s been reluctantly decided that the friendly game between FC Halifax Town and Bradford City AFC on Saturday, 29th July, will now be played behind ‘closed doors’.
There’ll be no public entry to this fixture.
This difficult decision has been taken following advice from West Yorkshire Police. Due to a number of recent unfortunate high-profile events, the demands on the force both locally and nationally are unprecedented.
FC Halifax`s Kelly Gilchrist said: “We’re all immensely disappointed with this outcome, but must respect and be considerate of the current pressures placed on our County’s Police force – with the requirement of manpower to oversee the crowd within the ground and within the wider Calderdale and Bradford areas.”
