Gary Liddle signs for Bradford City

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Gary Liddle is delighted to link up with the Bantams Gary Liddle is delighted to link up with the Bantams

Midfielder Gary Liddle this afternoon joined Bradford City.

The former Notts County battler signed a one-year deal, with the option of a further season, to become Phil Parkinson's third summer capture.

Liddle, who can play central defence as well, also revealed that City had tried to get him in 2012 before he joined the Magpies.

He said: "Phil rang me pretty soon after the news got out that I was leaving Notts County and I was delighted to see his name flash up on the phone.

"As soon as the manager told me of his plans next season, it was something I wanted to be part of.

"Truth be told, there was a chance of me signing here a couple of years ago. So it's nice to see the manager still interested in me now."

The football club can confirm that Nathan Doyle will not be part of Phil Parkinson's squad for next (2014/2015) season and that the midfielder has now left the Coral Windows Stadium.


Doyle, who was out of contract this summer, made 94 appearances for City in two seasons after joining the club for a second time back in August 2012. The 27 year-old had previously played for the Bantams during a loan spell from Derby County during the 2006/07 season.


Doyle's final performance in a City shirt came in the club's victory over Tranmere Rovers in early May on the last day of last season.


As part of City's 'history-makers' squad, Doyle played in the club's memorable Capital One Cup victories over Wigan Athletic, Arsenal and Aston Villa, as well as the final itself against Swansea City.


At the end of that same amazing 2012/2013 campaign, Doyle also featured in the Bantams' League 2 Play-Off Final victory over Northampton Town.


Parkinson said: "“We have decided to shake hands with Doyley and part our separate ways.


“We thank him for all of his efforts over the last two years he has been with the club and we wish him all the very best for the future.”

I alway's thought Doyle was a cool customer on the ball, sad to see him go , I wonder if there were undertone's of disagreement with Parky or the coach?
