Banton Joins On Loan

Bradford (Park Avenue) are delighted to announce the loan signing of defender Julian Banton from Sheffield United until 21 September.

The 18 year old featured against the Avenue in the 3-2 defeat to Sheffield United Under-21s at the Horsfall Stadium.

Banton started his career at Arsenal from the age of nine, and was in their academy until 15. Then, the defender joined the Blades and has recently had a loan spell at Stocksbridge Park Steels.

On joining the Avenue, Banton told the official website:

“I’m looking forward to this experience and getting used to the style of the league.

Hopefully I can bring some physicality and composure to the team. At Sheffield United, we like to play football, and after playing against Bradford (Park Avenue), I know they like to play good football too.”
