Flashback – Stan the man

Collymore hit a spectacular goal on his Bradford debut.

Collymore hit a spectacular goal on his Bradford debut.

Rewind back to 2000-2001 season when two of Yorkshire’s biggest sides were both in the top flight.

Leeds United and Bradford City faced off at Valley Parade, with new signing Stan Collymore making his Bantam debut.

Collymore had but Bradford one up with that spectacular overhead-kick (see video) only for Mark Viduka to save Leeds’ blushes with a late equalizer.

Though Collymore’s career didn’t last long after that, only making a handful of appearences for Bradford before struggling in Spain with Real Oviedo.

Stan now works as a pundit for newspapers such as Daily Mirror and a presenter for radio station TalkSport.
