We can today confirm the loan signing of Bradford City goalkeeper Heath Richardson.

Heath came through the ranks of Bradford City’s academy, and signed his first professional deal last season, training alongside Harry Lewis and Colin Doyle.

His deal was extended in June 2023, and Richardson featured in Bradford City’s XI at our annual pre-season Tom Banks memorial game.

Richardson had a spell on loan at then Northern Premier League side Buxton in the 21/22 season, and also made the bench for City’s FA Cup win at York City that season, as well as the subsequent 2nd round defeat to Morecambe.

On the deal, Goalkeeper Coach Danny King said:

“We have been aware of interest in George for a short while, and as such have been scouting goal keepers to come in.

“Heath played against us in preseason and did really well, so naturally we kept an eye on his progression and after watching games he’s played in we feel he would be the ideal keeper for us. I am looking forward to working with him in his time here.”

Heath Richardson is available immediately for selection in our upcoming Northern Premier League match vs Marske United, on Saturday 28th October. 3pm KO. Stay tuned to our socials for the latest updates
