Joe Cracknell Signs for Bradford City
Bradford City have today confirmed the signing of Joe Cracknell on a five month contract, the young goalkeeper has been training with City throughout pre-season and has featured in a number of the club’s friendly fixtures this summer.
The shot-stopper signed a contract with the Bantams after leaving Hull City’s academy at the end of last season. Cracknell featured for the Tigers in their academy and reserves last season and he also enjoyed a spell on loan at Scarborough Athletic during the campaign.
He is now expected to add competition to City’s goalkeeping position as well as keep goal for City’s Final Third Development League matches this year.
Speaking about the signing Bantams boss Phil Parkinson said, “Joe has impressed us over pre-season and he has earned himself this contract. Hopefully he can keep improving and become a good prospect for us.
We have been looking for a young goalkeeper for Lee Butler (Goalkeeping Coach) to really work with and help to develop and Joe certainly fits the bill. We have our under 21s competition this season and he will be figuring prominently in that.”
