    I would never admit that whilst they were our league rivals but back in the day without doubt it was.

    One of the few potential area in Bradford that could be redeveloped.

    To enlarge Park Avenue they would have to take the cricket ground, as Sheffield United did, but it could certainly be done now Yorkshire County Cricket Club have washed there hands many years ago of Bradford .

    If City were to ever move that would still be an option for a reasonably good sized stadium, with a little help from our council planning, redevelopment ETC.

    By the time I came to Bratfud, PA were long gone but the remains of the ground were still standing. I lived in a student house in Cecil Avenue, just the other side of Horton Park from the cricket ground.
    I went to a couple of Sunday League matches at the cricket ground. But my main memory is of the cricket ground pavilion. This had a large upstairs function room along its full length and used to host student discos several nights per week. I have very happy memories of those drunken nights at 'The Cricket Club' as we knew it. They stopped doing them in 1981 and all the action moved to Pickwicks, on Morley St, and Champagne on Ashgrove (or possibly Claremont).

    Some nice photos there, was at the Cambridge game, and still have a copy of that T & A, very evocative photos of BPA, not so nice of the Barnsley game, was there at that one as well, one eye on the game, one eye on the charlies coming over.
