We are thrilled to announce the re-signing of talented right-back Lucas Odunston!

Lucas originally joined the club in August 2021, and agreed terms today on a new one-year deal to keep him at the Horsfall for the 2023/24 Season.

Odunston’s journey with Bradford (Park Avenue) began two years ago when he made the move from Hull u21s. Since then, he has demonstrated tremendous growth and dedication on the field, making 29 appearances in his first season (21/22), followed by 38 in the 22/23 Season 

Prior to his time with Hull, Lucas showcased his talents as a promising young player at Leeds u18s side, where he honed his skills and developed a strong footballing foundation.

Mark Bower was equally happy with the signing, saying this; 

“Great to get Lucas over the line, he’s been a fantastic player over the last 2 seasons, and when away from injury he is often one of our best. His attitude on and off the pitch has been brilliant and he can really become a role model for the younger players in the squad.” 

An interview with Lucas will be posted on Friday, so stay tuned to our Socials!
