Bradford (Park Avenue) can today confirm the signing of Goalkeeper Craig Ellison, who joins the club on a deal that will see him at the Horsfall until the end of the 23/24 season.

We can also confirm the signing of winger Harley Lawton, who joins until the end of the season, on a work experience loan from Accrington Stanley. We’d like to say a huge thanks to Accrington for their help in getting this deal over the line.

Ellison started his career at Crewe Alexandra, and has experience in National League North with Vauxhall Motors and Stalybridge Celtic. He also had a short spell with North Ferriby in the National League.

He has also been on the books at FC Halifax Town, Hyde United, Curzon Ashton, Colwyn Bay, and Witton Albion, as well as playing abroad for CFZ Brasilia, and having a trial at Fluminense. Across the pond he also made appearances for Miami Dade.

Goalkeeper Coach Dean Baker had this to say on the signing;

“Looking forward to working with Craig, I’ve known him for a few years, and his experience and professionalism within the game will be a great addition to our team.

“I’ve worked with him in both coaching and playing, and I know he’s got a good drive and is always looking to improve himself and those around him.

“We knew it was a great opportunity to get him involved, and I’m looking forward to seeing what Craig can offer to the team”
