Hearts Sign Former City Goalkeeper Colin Doyle
Heart of Midlothian Football Club have today confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Colin Doyle on a two year contract at Tynecastle. The Republic of Ireland International joins the club as a free agent following his release from Bradford City.
Born in Cork, the 6’5” goalie started his professional career with Birmingham City in 2003 before going out on loan to Chester City, Nottingham Forest and Millwall. Having made 14 appearances for Millwall in 2005-06 season, he returned to Birmingham City the following season and featured 22 times for the first-team.
Doyle then moved to Blackpool and established himself as The Tangerines’ No.1 keeper making 35 appearances, before Bradford City released a trigger clause in his contract and he joined the Bantams in 2016. He quickly became the No.1 goalkeeper at Bradford City and made a total of 88 appearances over two seasons, helping the club to the League One Play-Off Final at Wembley Stadium under Stuart McCall.
