Manager Mark Bower has moved to retain the services of Bradford (Park Avenue) midfield general Nicky Wroe for another season.
The vastly-experienced Wroe served as captain last season, making a remarkable 48 appearances in all competitions. He joined in July 2016 from Yorkshire neighbours FC Halifax Town, bringing a wealth of experience from his time in league football to the Horsfall Stadium.
A promotion-winner from non-league’s top flight with Torquay United, Wroe has also represented Barnsley, York City, Preston North End, Shrewsbury Town and Notts County among others.
His energy levels, consistency and ability to retain possession in tight areas made him a favourite of Avenue’s management team last season, and the midfielder is likely to play a key role again next season.
Wroe is the eighth confirmed member of the 2018/19 squad, joining Steven Drench, Mark Ross, Shane Killock, Luca Havern, Nicky Clee, Oli Johnson and Adam Boyes in committing his future to Avenue. The club’s management team of Mark Bower and Danny Boshell have also agreed new deals in a promising start to the summer.
