Harriers are thrilled to announce the signing of AFC Fylde star Dan Bradley.
Dan has consistently been one of non-league football’s best talents over the last few seasons. He has penned a three-year deal at Aggborough to start a second spell with the club.
He played here in the 2010-11 season before moving on to Alfreton Town where, across four seasons, he was the heart of the attack at the Impact Arena.
Fylde landed his signature just over a year ago, with the 26-year-old going on to play an influential role in the team’s title-winning success.
With the Midlander now keen to move back closer to home, Harriers have won the battle to sign him having agreed a substantial transfer with AFC Fylde as part of the deal.
“Dan knows in coming here he’ll be taken care of both on and off the pitch…” Colin Gordon
Chairman Colin Gordon stated: “This has been a very long process and we’ve had to be very patient.
“Dan knows in coming here he’ll be taken care of both on and off the pitch at what is a challenging but exciting time for him personally and professionally as he prepares for the arrival of his first child.
“His ability on the pitch is undisputed and he’ll bring quality to the squad, there’s no doubt about that.”
The Chairman added: “I’m sure the fact that we’ve paid a big sum to bring Dan here will raise one or two eyebrows but this is very calculated gamble and, not having that kind of money just lying around, it isn’t something we’ve done lightly.
“…[It’s] important that our supporters can be confident in our ambitions…” Colin Gordon
“We aren’t talking specifics with regards to the fee at the present moment but that’s only owing to the fact that we’ll be going to an FA Tribunal over Jordan Tunnicliffe – we would hope to recoup a good portion of the amount we’ve spent and will communicate that when we know more.
“It’s also important that our supporters can be confident in our ambitions for the season and I know they’ll make Dan feel very welcome here.”
