Falkirk and Bradford’s dispute over compensation for Mark Stewart will finally come to an end next month.

The Bairns have been told publication of the judges’ decision wuill be made on Friday, February 7.

Bradford have countered the FIFA decision to award €250,000 for the striker who joined the Yorkshire club in July 2011.

Stewart has since joined Dundee, Hamilton and is currently at Kilmarnock but was called upon for evidence in the recent case heard at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

It was attended by Falkirk FC’s lawyer, general manager David White and the English club’s legal team.

The Bairns have always claimed they were due cash for training Stewart, calculated using FIFA development documents. But City contested the club’s claims, and after a FIFA tribunal sided with the training club and awarded £215,000 last February, Bradford took the case to the final possible stage of appeal at the CAS in Lausanne in November.
