We can confirm today that Academy player Myles La-Bastide has today penned his first professional contract with Bradford (Park Avenue), signing a 2 year deal with the club.
Myles first appeared for the First Team in our County Cup match vs Brighouse Town, and made his first league appearance against Chester in February.
Since then, La-Bastide has made 4 starts in our last 4 games, and helped Avenue gain 8 points out of 12, including a goal vs Southport and assisting Harrison Hoppers goal against Banbury.
Speaking on the signing, First Team manager Mark Bower said;
“I’m delighted to get this one over the line. Myles has proved his ability over the last month while playing in the first team, from scoring his first professional goal two weeks ago, and grabbing an assist in our last match.”
“It goes to show the great work the Academy staff are doing, with this being our second professional contract from the Academy this season. A huge credit goes to Thomas McStravick and Pat McGuire.”
