Huddersfield midfielder and Doncaster right winger join Bantams on season-long loans

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Huddersfield midfielder Chris Atkinson Huddersfield midfielder Chris Atkinson

City this afternoon completed a double signing as Phil Parkinson continued his squad revamp.

As revealed on the T&A website earlier today, Doncaster right winger Kyle Bennett has signed on loan until the end of the season.

City have also swooped for Huddersfield midfielder Chris Atkinson on a similar arrangement.

Halifax-born Atkinson fills the gap left by Jason Kennedy’s return to Rochdale, having played 28 games during the first half of the season on loan at Tranmere.

Phil Parkinson said: "We’ve got a lot of games coming up and with Jason going, I felt it was important to get another midfield player in.

"Chris has played a lot of first-team football this year. He’s a good young player with good energy and is another one who knows this division well."

GOOD !!---Just what I wanted---more players into the Squad.
*
Let's hope they become loyal to City, and fit in quickly. Also an Allenby fitness program is needed before they can play in the First Team.
*
MORE RESERVE ( STIFFS ) Matches are needed. N.B. Secretary.

* That's you happy then. Just more players in the squad.
* I'm sure they will do their best. Strange how so many have become addicted to loan players all of a sudden. Nobody's careers being ruined just yet then! Please can somebody pass a message on to Mr. Allenby. Freddy says to tell him that a fitness programme is needed for these players before they can play in the first team. Have you got that? Write it down if necessary, but don't forget to tell him. It's important!
* The secretary does not decide when 'reserve' team games are needed. They are difficult to arrange at this time of year. Freddy, did you notice how many 'reserve' games were played last year between November and February? Perhaps you should try organising some!
