Jackson Quits As Bantams Boss

Bradford boss Peter Jackson has become the first League Two managerial casualty after resigning his post.

An official statement reads:

'At a club board meeting today, the football club can confirm that First Team Manager Peter Jackson has tendered his resignation. This was duly accepted by the board. Peter told the board that in light of the poor start to the season, he felt that to resign now would give the club that best possible chance for the rest of the season.'

Jackson only took over in the summer on a permanent basis after taking caretaker charge for the final third of last season. His summer rebuilding has seen the club collect just one point and lose their last two games without scoring.
