The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

BRAD­FORD’S James Mered­ith says he’s re­formed af­ter ad­mit­ting he was guilty of en­joy­ing the good life of a foot­baller a lit­tle too much in the past.

A ten-week ab­sence with glan­du­lar fever mid­way through the sea­son gave teh Aussie plenty of time to con­sider his fu­ture and the full-back is now fully com­mit­ted to the Ban­tams.

“I felt like I’d let my­self and the team down as well as the fans,” he said.“Get­ting ill is down to the luck of the draw. It can’t be helped.

“But I also felt I wasn’t liv­ing 100 per cent health­wise. I was go­ing out en­joy­ing my­self and things like that. Now I’m fully com­mit­ted and fo­cused.”
