Published Add your comment

Bradford manager Peter Jackson expects to hand new 16-year-old signing Scott Brown his first-team debut next season.

Brown, who played for Scottish Third Divsion side Clyde last year, is poised to sign a two-year deal with the option of a further two years.

Jackson said: "We feel that we've got a real find on our hands here."

He added: "For such a young kid to come down from Scotland to a big club like ours and train the way he has done is exceptional.


"He's going into the developmental squad to start with but I do believe we could have a real success story on our hands here as he's one of the best 16-year-olds I've seen in a long time.

"My record shows that I am not scared of giving young players their debuts and hopefully I'll by giving Scott his this season."
