Speaking about the move to Bridlington Nathan Doyle said, “I’m delighted to sign for Bridlington Town and can’t wait to link up with the lads for preseason. When Curtis went to Bridlington, I have always checked to see how results were going and after speaking with Curtis this week I can’t wait to get started.
We are hoping to push for promotion next season and I’am hoping I can help achieve our goal, whilst assisting some of the younger lads in the squad develop and pass on some of my vast experience that I have gained in my time in the professional game.
When speaking to Curtis about the plans for the team I could tell he really believed in the club. Everybody I have spoken to about the club has spoken highly of Bridlington Town and especially chairman Peter Smurthwaite, so I’m looking forward to getting stuck in and trying to lead from the front by example.”
