BRADFORD (Park Avenue) are continuing to build for the 2020/21 season after adding a former loanee to their squad.

Isaac Marriott has signed a pre-contract agreement to join Avenue for next season when his current deal with Huddersfield Town expires.

Marriott made 25 appearances across all competitions in his previous loan spell at Horsfall last term.

The 20-year-old went back to his parent club in January to be accessed by new Town boss Danny Cowley, before being shipped out back on-loan to Northern Premier League side Warrington Town.

The midfielder had been part of the Huddersfield elite academy set-up since he was nine years old.

He joins winger Jamie Lyons, forward Lewis Knight, goalkeeper Dan Atkinson and defender Mitch Lund in signing up for next season.

Marriott told Avenue's website: "I’m thrilled to be joining BPA from next season. A massive part of my decision was the chance to work again under Mark and his assistant Danny, and I was also inspired by the ambitious plans the club have moving forward.

"I also felt that during my loan spell the fans took a liking to me which is a big factor in me joining. They’re a great set of fans and I can’t wait to get started."

Assistant manager, Danny Boshell added: "Fantastic news that Isaac has agreed to sign for us next season. Having worked with Isaac for a spell last season we know he’s a great kid with a top class attitude, and has a willingness and determination to learn which is a real positive in any player.

"The challenge for Isaac now is for him to establish himself at this level, then to hopefully kick on and fulfil his potential and get back into the EFL.

"It's great that he sees us as a platform to that and having played the odd game or two in Isaac’s position myself, I’m sure I can give him one or two pointers in the right direction to try help him meet his ambitions."
