We are delighted to announce the loan signing of Goalkeeper Brad Wade, who has agreed terms with the Club on an initial 28-day loan move.

Goalkeeper coach Danny King said this on the signing; 

“I think it’s a great signing for the Club, Brad has lots of experience in non-league football and brings a great amount of experience into the team, while still being a young and developing talent. 

“He’s a very attacking keeper, which should help the team in our transitions and going forward.

“And he’s got a big personality too, so hopefully that will come across well in the dressing room and on the pitch.”

Born in Gloucester Wade was raised in Chorley, Lancashire, and was associated with Manchester United from the age of 10. 

After a spell with Blackburn Rovers he joined Rochdale, there he became a product of the club’s youth system and signed his first professional contract with the club in 2018. 

This was later extended and he was contracted until the summer of 2022.

The young ‘keeper had been with Rochdale from the age of 15 and played in three FA Youth Cup campaigns. 

He was a key member of Dale’s youth team which won the EFL Youth Alliance League North West title in 2017-18. As well as extending his experience at Guiseley he also had a loan spell at Barrow.

On leaving Rochdale he played for Hereford and Southport but ruptured the UCL in his elbow. A proposed move to Irish League Premier Division club St Patrick’s also failed to gain international clearance due to his Non Contract status.

After being released by Hereford in March 2023, he joined Guiseley AFC for the fourth time. 

Wade is available for selection in today’s game vs Gainsborough Trinity, stay tuned to our socials for the latest updates.
