City Sign Greg Leigh After Trial
Bradford City have today confirmed the signing of left-back Greg Leigh on a one-year contract after a recent trial period with the club. Leigh has featured in a number of City’s pre-season friendlies this summer, scoring the opener in the 3-0 over Motherwell.
Leigh who spent last season on loan at Crewe Alexandra from Premier League giants Manchester City. After leaving the Ethiad Stadium in the summer, Leigh now becomes City’s ninth signing ahead of the new campaign.
Speaking about the signing City manager Phil Parkinson said, “Although we already have Alan Sheehan and James Meredith for that left back slot, we just feel Greg has the ability to become a asset to the squad going forward.
He has real power and pace and he played a large number of games in Sky Bet League One last season for Crewe Alexandra whilst still at a young age.
He may have to go out on loan for a month or so if he doesn’t force his way into our team but we are confident he is a player who will improve.
Greg has a great hunger and desire to be as good as he can be and he’ll be determined to try and force his way into that first team reckoning.”
