Sponsored by: Available To Sponsor

Mark, 36, was appointed Avenue manager in September 2016, and after an incredible turnaround which led to the club’s National League North safety, he was awarded with a new 18 month deal at the end of the 2016-17 season.

Bower had spent the last three years in charge at Avenue’s neighbours Guiseley, defeating all the odds to not only gain promotion to the National League, but also to avoid relegation from non-league’s top flight.

Born in Bradford, the former centre-back spent the vast majority of his playing days across the city at Valley Parade, making a total of 254 appearances for Bradford City over his 12 years at the club.
