Bradford sign up striker Hanson

Bradford City

Bradford City have completed the permanent signing of striker James Hanson from Guiseley.

The 21-year-old has been given a two-year deal after impressing while on trial from the Unibond Premier side.

As he had already been offered a new contract at Guiseley, the two clubs will have to agree compensation.

Hanson scored 44 goals in two seasons at Nethermoor and is expected to make his first appearance as an official Bradford player on Saturday.

He is the second player in as many weeks that manager Stuart McCall has signed from a non-league club following the capture of defender Steve Williams from Bamber Bridge.

McCall has now added six players to his squad this summer - the others being Gareth Evans, Zesh Rehman, Simon Ramsden and Jonathan Bateson.

But defender Paul Arnison left the club on Thursday after his contract was cancelled by mutual consent.
