JAMIE’S SIGN­ING BOOSTS BAN­TAMS

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Pippa Field

BRADFORD City man­ager Phil Parkin­son de­clared him­self sat­is­fied with his side’s deal­ings on the fi­nal day of the trans­fer win­dow, but is not fin­ished yet.

Mid­fielder Gary Liddle joined Ch­ester­field and striker Luke James’ loan deal from Peter­bor­ough United was ter­mi­nated, al­low­ing him to move to Hartle­pool United, while the Ban­tams tied down Fleet­wood striker Jamie Proctor, 23, to a per­ma­nent deal on a hec­tic dead­line day.

“Lidds is a good player and a great pro­fes­sional, but Ch­ester­field made a good of­fer fi­nan­cially for a player who only had five months left on his cur­rent con­tract,” Parkin­son said.

“Jamie is very keen to do well and push for a place here.We want that com­pe­ti­tion for places at the top end.We felt re­cently that we had to freshen things up a bit with our at­tack­ing op­tions, and the ar­rivals of Jamie and Wes (Thomas) should help.

“The loan win­dow opens up again soon and we’ll be look­ing to do some more busi­ness then.”

EA­GER: Jamie Proctor
