Marcus Law has further strengthened his Bradford (Park Avenue) squad with the signing of midfielder Kemy Agustien.

The 33-year-old Curacao international joins the club following a stint at Wrexham at the end of last season.

Agustien has lined up for a number of clubs across a long career, most notably featuring for Willem II and AZ Alkmaar in Holland before spells at Birmingham, Swansea and Brighton among others in the UK.

He was in fact part of the squads at both Birmingham and Swansea which earned promotion to the Premier League, featuring in the top flight during his four years at the Welsh club.

The six-foot central midfielder played for his native Netherlands at youth level, from under-15 to under-23, before changing allegiances, first featuring for Curacao in 2015.

After some time playing football around the world in various countries, he returned to the UK to feature for Halesowen Town, then-managed by current Avenue assistant Lee Fowler.

He has since lined up for Barrow and Wrexham in the National League before moving to Bradford.

Agustien goes straight into the squad for Avenue’s trip to Brackley Town this Saturday following the receipt of international clearance.
