Welcome to the last Pre-Match Programme of the regular season for 2018/19.
This Easter Monday sees the Avenue play host to York city in the last home game of the season proper. The fixture comes after a close 1-0 defeat away at Darlington on Good Friday, meaning 3 points will now be vital for Bradford to clinch a much coveted playoff spot.
York come into the Bank Holiday on the back of a close 3-2 defeat to playoff placed Spennymoor town. Although the Minster Men have only pride to play for at this point in the season, York will be looking for revenge after Bradford thrashed the full time outfit 4-1 in the reverse fixture back in November.
Join Us After The Game
The end of season presentation will be held in the clubhouse after the game. The bar will be open for the presentation and is the perfect opportunity to celebrate a fantastic season and to thank the players, staff an importantly, the volunteers who make it all possible.
In this weeks Programme
CEO Damian Irvine provides a round up of the season, both on and off the field.
And love is in the air with a special announcement to the Avenue Family from a pair of supporters (although everybody already knows the news!).

Knowing The Opposition
Striker Jordan Burrow joined York City in May 2018 after leaving Vanarama National League side Gateshead.
Burrow, 26, has played in the Football League for both Stevenage and Morecambe and won the FA Trophy two years ago with Halifax Town.
The former England ‘C’ international started his career at Chesterfield but made his senior debut during a loan spell with Boston United.
He scored 10 goals in 39 appearances for Lincoln City in the 2014-15 season before notching 14 goals in 43 league starts for Halifax in 2015-16.
Sheffield-born Burrow joined Gateshead in November 2016 and scored 10 goals last season as the Tynesiders finished 17th in the National League.
Striker Jon Parkin returned to York City in November 2016 after a lengthy career in the higher echelons of the Football League.
Now 37, Parkin proved that he is still a massive threat to opposition defenders last season by scoring 25 goals.
Born in Barnsley, Parkin started his career at his hometown club before moving to York, initially on loan, in 2002.
After two years at Bootham Crescent, he joined Macclesfield Town before progressing to Hull City, Stoke City, Preston North End, and Cardiff City.
He subsequently had loan spells with Doncaster Rovers, Huddersfield Town, and Scunthorpe United before joining Fleetwood Town, Forest Green Rovers, and Newport County.
