Bradford (Park Avenue) have confirmed the signing of Joe Crosby, who joins the club on a deal until the end of the 2024/25 season. 

Crosby spent last season at Tadcaster Albion, playing under Mick O’Connell. During his time there, he scored eight goals in 26 appearances.

The attacking midfielder also has experience at Silsden and Harrogate Railway, the latter playing under O’Connell too, and it was at Railway that he picked up a Player of the Season award for his performances.

After signing for Avenue, Crosby told the club: “I’m delighted to have signed for BPA.

“I’m looking forward to getting started for the new season and I want to continue to challenge myself and push for promotion with the team.”

After two successive relegations, Avenue are looking to bounce back into the Northern Premier League Premier Division at the first attempt.
