Knowles Joins FC Halifax Town

Bradford (Park Avenue) have confirmed captain James Knowles has left the club to join FC Halifax Town.

The 29 year old defender was an integral part of John Deacey’s promotion winning side during the 2011-12 season, forming a solid partnership with former Avenue player James Riley at the centre of defence. Also, John Deacey handed the captain’s armband to the defender for the newly promoted side in the Blue Square Bet North. Previously in his career, Knowles had two spells at Throstle Nest with Farsley AFC.

The club would like to thank James for his services at the Horsfall Stadium. Despite the best efforts to retain the defender, the Avenue wish him luck in his new move.
