Bradford (Park Avenue) are delighted to announce that forward Lewis Knight has signed a new contract with the club.

The 20-year-old’s new deal will run until the end of the 2019/20 campaign.

A summer signing, the former Leeds United prodigy has made an impressive start to the season and has been crucial in Bradford’s ascent to second place in the Vanarama National League North.

He initially joined the club as a trialist, but Mark Bower moved quickly to secure his services after a string of outstanding displays during pre-season. The pacey marksman endured a lengthy wait to receive international clearance but eventually made his debut in a 1-1 draw with Stockport County in August.

Knight has been operating on the flank in recent weeks, registering several assists and helping the club move within four goals of top spot.

He had this to say after putting pen to paper on the new deal:

“I’m really happy to have signed a new contract. The past few weeks have been incredible, not only for myself but for the team. We now have to continue this fine form and make sure that we’re up near the top at the end of the season.”
