Charlie Wood, son of one of TL Dallas’ Associate Directors, has been signed to Bradford City’s first team.
Wood, 18, has been described as a rising star of the Bantams, which saw him welcomed into Derek Adams’ first-team at just 18, ahead of the 2021/22 season.
Wood plays attack midfielder and he made his first-team debut in claret and amber back in November. Here’s what he has to say about his experience so far…
“This is a great achievement for me, and is what I have been working towards for a long time. Now, the hard work continues. I have got to kick on from here and progress in the game. I have really enjoyed playing in the under-18s team, and feel I have developed a lot since starting my scholarship. Training and playing with the first team last season was a really good experience, and was the first step towards what I want to achieve. I was happy to have made my debut and, hopefully, I can earn some more appearances and kick on next year.”
Bantams boss Derek Adams said “We are really pleased to have been able to tie […] young talents down on professional contracts, and are looking forward to seeing how they further develop. For Charlie, it is a great opportunity for him to further his development after gaining his first professional contract.”
As sponsors of Bradford City AFC we’re so proud to see one of the family joining the first team at just 18 years old. Congratulations Charlie!
