Bradford (Park Avenue) have continued their summer rebuild with two new signings.

Lewis Rathbone and Elliot Holmes have joined Garry Thompson’s side.

Midfielder Rathbone, who has followed a similar pathway to Horsfall Stadium via the American university system as Lewis Knight and others, arrived late in the 2018-2019 season campaign and eventually was granted international clearance.
