Bradford (Park Avenue) have signed both Isaac Marriott and Jaheim Headley on season long loans for the 2019/20 season.

On his move to the Horsfall stadium, Isaac Marriott commented:

“I am delighted to join Bradford (Park Avenue) and am looking forward to the season ahead. It’s a great opportunity to play games, and I’m really excited about how well our team is going to do.”

During Huddersfield’s 2016/17 season, Marriott was one of the standout players for the Under-18’s playing in 27 of 29 games. He was also called up to play for the Under-23 side.

Marriott has experienced senior game time when he played for Brighouse Town in the 2017/18 season and won the ‘Player of the Month’ award during his first month at the club.

Jaheim Headley is a strong midfielder who has played for Huddersfield’s Under-17’s side.  He has shown great maturity and decision-making skills on the pitch which has earned him the opportunity to play senior football.

Born in London, Headley grew up playing at Millwall’s academy before moving north to Huddersfield Town.

Director Gareth Roberts said:

“Huddersfield has shown its’ confidence in the club and the system of development that we have established.”

“The club’s ties with Park Avenue and its’ directors both here and the United States is a testament to the quality of football we are committed to.”

Huddersfield’s Under-19’s manager Dean Whitehead praised the young players performances after the two-a-piece draw at Horsfall:

“The game was a real test for us, it was good to see Jaheim and Isaac playing well for them (Bradford Park Avenue).”

“Overall, our young lads are developing and learning more and more every single day, it is really, really pleasing.”
