We can today confirm the signing of Midfielder Zak Kersey on a one-year deal with the club, with option for a 2nd.
Zak joins the First Team after a year as a scholar with the BPA Academy, and made multiple League appearances for the First Team towards the back end of last season whilst on non-contract terms.
During his time with the Academy, he also spent time out on loan with Frickley Athletic, and earned a Man of the Match award on his debut for the club.
He also appeared in last season’s West Riding County Cup match vs Brighouse Town, scoring the opening goal with a great strike.
On the signing, Danny Boshell said;
“We’re really pleased Zak has signed. He’s a great kid with a fantastic attitude and a willingness to learn.”
“He’s still young with a lot to learn but he showed in his brief appearances last season that he has the ability and potential to step up.”
We also caught up with Zak in a video interview which you can watch below.
