AVENUE have announced another signing today, with Brad Dockerty becoming the third player to be retained for next season alongside club captain Luca Havern and the experienced Nicky Clee.

The young winger, who made a bright start to his Avenue career back in 2019, also played an important role last term, but will be hoping for a full and successful 2021/22 campaign after two years interrupted by both his working circumstances and the coronavirus pandemic.

On signing his new deal, Dockerty enthused: "I'm delighted to sign on with Bradford (Park Avenue) for another year.

"I really enjoyed it last season and thought we competed well with some of the best teams in the league, and that will only get better with our mix of experience and youth.

"Hopefully we will get the buzz of the fans being back in the stadium as soon as possible too, which will help us build on what we did last year."

Avenue manager Mark Bower added: "It was such a shame that the season ended early for all of us, but I felt even more so for Brad, as he was looking fit and starting to show a real consistency in his performances.

"We have seen the potential Brad has and we look forward to working with him again next season to help him to continue his progression and allow him to showcase his qualities."

Meanwhile, Avenue are also joining football clubs up and down the country to send an important message this weekend.

All 92 Premier League and EFL clubs, including City, will be staying off Twitter, Facebook and Instagram from 3pm tomorrow to 11.59pm on Monday night.

The move is being done in response to the ongoing and sustained discriminatory abuse received online by players and many others connected to football.

Most clubs below Premier League and EFL level have made that decision too, including several sides in the Bradford District.

And that now includes Bradford's most high profile non-league club, Avenue.
