Bradford (Park Avenue) have secured former Doncaster Rovers defender Mitchell Lund for the 2019/2020 season.
The promising 22-year-old spent his development years at Doncaster before making over 60 senior appearances at League One and League Two level, including loan spells with Wrexham and Morecambe.
Manager Garry Thompson worked with Lund at Morecambe last season, and like Ben Hedley, who also joined Bradford (Park Avenue) this pre-season, Thompson saw enough to pursue his signature. He said today:
“We’re delighted to sign another player of the experience and quality of Mitch. He has an excellent background and experience of playing higher up the pyramid at a very strong period of Doncaster Rovers history and will provide us with additional quality and poise from the back.”
He continued: “I’ve seen first-hand the attitude and character of Mitch whilst at Morecambe. He has been training with us since we came back and fits perfectly the quality of individual we want to represent The Avenue.
“It’s a testament to the way the club is travelling currently in terms of the process and recruitment support in place. We are hand-picking the players we want and the deals are getting done, we can’t wait for the pre-season matches and season proper to kick-off.”
