We can confirm today that fan favourite, club legend and all round nice guy, Adam Nowakowski is leaving the club for the foreseeable future.
Adam leaves to take up a position abroad with Nestle where he holds down a full time career.
The club wishes to pay our thanks to Adam, who has been an incredible servant, particularly over these last few seasons, playing for us for just £1 a week!
On his departure, Mark Bower said this of the ex Harrogate and Darlington player: Adam is a legend here, to not only start, but to continue playing for a quid a week is an amazing gesture. For me, he has been a real stalwart of this club, can play in a variety of positions and always gave me, the staff, the lads, and most importantly the fans, 100%. I am sure he will be missed by everyone at the club, the first team and the fans. He will always be welcome back at Bradford (Park Avenue) and we will hold his registration so that if he does become available we can bring him back.
Clubman of the year, Neil Fawcett was equally as enthusiastic about Nowakowski: What a player Adam has been for us over the years with his commitment to the club
Some of the banter on the team coach will stay legendary, away trips won’t be the same without the king on his throne!
Another fan, Lewis Sale said: Adam has been an integral part of the squad in his two spells at the club. His experience, personality and quality has been vital, both on and off the field. And, agreeing to play for a £1 a week is evidence of the person ‘Nova’ is. He’s an unforgettable and irreplaceable character and will be sadly missed, but I’d like to wish him all the very best and success for the future.
Adams team mate, Oli Johnson said: I’ve played with Adam since 2016 so he’s been a constant in my time at BPA. He’s the strangest guy I know but also one of the best. It won’t be the same without him. Good luck going forward mate!
Tonight marks Adam’s last game for the foreseeable future, we hope you are down here to send him off!
Everyone at the club wishes Adam well, best of luck Nova!
