0 Have your say Bradford City have confirmed the appointment of David Hopkin as their new manager. The League One club, who sacked Michael Collins on Monday night, have turned to the 48-year-old Scot as they look to usher in a period of stability. Stuart McCall and Simon Grayson both left the club last season, while Collins only lasted six games of this campaign. Hopkin, a Bradford player towards the end of his career, arrives with a good pedigree, having got Livingston to the Scottish Premiership last season. Hopkin has signed a two-year-deal at Bradford, having opted to leave Livi despite securing back-to-back promotions. “I am absolutely delighted to be joining the Bantams and cannot wait to get started,” he said. “This is a huge opportunity for me. We have a talented squad and I am looking forward to working with the players and staff.” Hopkin made 16 playing appearances for City in a career which also took in the likes of Leeds United, Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Morton.
