Glusburn Community Primary School staged a Claret and Amber Day to celebrate Bradford City’s success in reaching Wembley.
Children and staff dressed in the football team’s colours, and were also joined by a real-life bantam, City’s mascot, named Hen’drie by the pupils after club legend John Hendrie.
Rumours the feathered friend is about to become the Bantams’ new winger had the children in a flap, but they were keen to ensure their was no fowl play that could lead to coop final heartache against Swansea City, nicknamed The Swans! Instead they enjoyed some cracking good fun a the kitchen team prepared a claret and amber dessert and juice, and a special themed assembly was held based on the club’s achievement in reaching the Capital One Cup final on Sunday.
Headteacher and Bantams fanatic, Richard Hunt, who is making the trip to Wembley, said: “The message delivered in the assembly was around the importance of self-belief, teamwork, team spirit, perseverance and, above all, holding on to your dreams.
“The whole story of how a fourth-tier football club managed to reach the final, beating teams from the Premier League along the way, really does deliver the message anything is possible.
“I hope our children follow their dreams and ambitions because dreams can come true!”
