Bradford (Park Avenue) have moved to add attacking options in their push for the National League North play-offs by adding Hull City youngster Keane Lewis-Potter.
Lewis-Potter is a highly-rated forward at Hull and was rewarded with a three-year professional contract on February 28th by Nigel Adkins, having netted eight goals at Under-18 level for the Tigers and an impressive 17 goals for the Under-23s this season.
A regular at training with Adkins’ first team, 18-year-old Lewis-Potter was included in the first team in January’s FA Cup clash away at Millwall.
On making his first-team debut, Adkins said of Lewis-Potter:
“He’s a young guy, diminutive in his figure, he’s got a bit of pace and an eye for goal. Let’s not put any pressure on him but let’s be excited that somewhere down the line it’s another player coming through the academy who’s got a bright future at the club.”
Keane will join fellow Hull product Charlie Andrew at The Horsfall and is on a loan deal until the end of the season.
Bradford (Park Avenue) CEO Damian Irvine said: “We’re really pleased to have secured the services of Keane. We’ve been looking to add some attacking support since Macauley Langstaff completed his loan period and cannot speak highly enough of Hull City and their staff, who have been exceptionally helpful.”
Irvine added: “We have plenty to offer as a club in terms of opportunities, and as with Charlie Andrew and Romaney Chrichlow Noble, Keane will be able to demonstrate his wares in a great environment competing at the top end of the league into the big games at the end of the season.”
