Bradford recently brought in teenage forward Jonathan Lewis, who has previous with Fulham, Middlesbrough and York whereas former captain Andrew Davies has bid a fond farewell to the Bantams faithful.

The arrival of Lewis was announced on the Official Website recently with the 18-year-old snapped up on a two-year deal having been recommended to the club by former player Mark Ellis in America.

Previously with Middlesbrough and York U19 sides as well as Fulham at U21 level Lewis had been playing in America for Ft Lauderdale in Florida when he was spotted by RIASA Football Director Ellis who suggested him to us, the rest as they say is history….

At first Lewis will link up with our Youth Team for training being part of our Final Third Development side this season before, all being well, progressing into the Bantams’ first-team squad in the years ahead!

One that had been a regular in this since 2011, despite some long-term injuries was former captain Davies, ending his stay recently when he signed for Scottish outfit Ross County on a free having left the club.

Usually I don’t like to quite someone in full but in Davies’ case I’ll make an exception with him taking to Twitter to say.

‘I just wanted to write a message thanking everyone at Bradford City for their support over the last four years.

‘Having made over 120 appearances for such a great club makes me immensely proud. One promotion and two trips to Wembley will always stay with me.

‘I know I’m leaving the club in a better place than when I arrived, and you all supported me right through until the end. That is why I never gave less than 110% for all of you.

‘There is a great set of lads, great staff members and fantastic fans here at this club. I wish everyone at Bradford City all the very best.’

We’ll wish you well too Andrew, it’s a shame the journey with us came to an end but all good things do end eventually don’t they….
