THE Bantams' Football Development Programme continues to show its worth, with another talented teenager joining the club's academy.

Under-15 player Gabe Wadsworth had been with City's academy on a trial basis, and has impressed the coaches so much that they decided to offer him a permanent place there.

The Bantams clearly see that Wadsworth will be a future star in the making.

The next step for Wadsworth will be to continue his development with the City coaches and to attempt to break into the Under-18s side.

Their captain last season, Charlie Wood, has just been awarded his first professional contract with City, so the path to the first team is clearly there.
