Bradford (Park Avenue) secure Hull academy product Elliot Holmes
Bradford (Park Avenue) today announced the signing of attacking midfielder Elliot Holmes for the 2019/2020 season.
19 year old Holmes was released from Hull City in May having spent the last 10 years with their Academy and was rewarded with promotion to the under 23 set up by Nigel Atkins and John Beale in 2018.
Holmes was excited to arrive at Horsfall and said today :
“I’ve enjoyed meeting Garry and Shaun and the squad during pre-season training and I was so pleased to finalise a contract “
Holmes continued :-
“ I talked to Garry and Shaun and while I had some under 23 interest from good quality EFL clubs, it’s time for me to play Men’s Football. Park Avenue have great history and there is such a good buzz around training and plenty of opportunity to make a position my own “
In a busy week for the club leading into a first friendly away to Hemsworth Miners on Saturday, Garry Thompson said of Elliot’s signing :
“ We’ve taken a very thorough approach to our recruitment and Elliot showed us the right attitude and character right from our initial discussions. The club has a close relationship with Hull City who have loaned our club some of their best talent recently and they know what we want and need in this league both in terms of character and ability. Elliot arrives with excellent references “
