Bantams win the perfect way to celebrate for Jackson

Published Add your comment

Bradford caretaker boss Peter Jackson turns 50 today and he celebrates reaching the half century mark on the back of a victory that he says was one of one of the most important of his managerial career.

The Bantams won 1-0 at Macclesfield last night, courtesy of a headed goal from James Hansen, to ease their relegation worries after climbing five places in the Npower League Two table.

Jackson said, “I am delighted for everyone connected with the club because this was a massive win for us.

“It makes it a wonderful birthday. If you rank the five top games in my career as a manager, this is up there as one of them.


“Macclesfield in front of just 1,000 people will be up there for me personally with the top five victories I’ve ever had.

“We’ve got the win and moved up five places. We’ve gone up to 15th on Peter Jackson’s 50th birthday. It’s marvellous.

“I am having a little drink with the staff today and then I am going out with Mrs Jackson and my beautiful family for a meal.

“I can enjoy it even more now and I am so proud of my players.”
