Bradford announce Neill Byrne signing

Bradford City have announced the signing of Stockport County defender Neill Byrne for the 2023/24 season.

Byrne was a part of the Hatters' League Two winning team but will not be joining his side in the third tier after having completed a move to Bradford after signing a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

"I am delighted to be here," the 31-year-old said about the move. "When I first heard about the interest from Bradford City and the manager, it was a move I really wanted to happen and get over the line.

"I have spoken with the gaffer [Graham Alexander] and we both have the same ambitions: to try and achieve what we did last year at Stockport, and bring this massive football club back up to League One.

"The key is to maintain that momentum that Bradford ended the season with, going into next season, and just keep kicking on with good standards.

"We need to try to get this fanbase behind us from the start of the season, while keeping them entertained and push for promotion. I am really looking forward to putting the shirt on."

Former Republic of Ireland youth international Byrne initially joined Stockport in January 2023 and went on to make 43 appearances for the club, scoring twice.

As a football fan, I am buzzing about this signing! Neill Byrne was a key player in Stockport County's League Two winning team and I have no doubt he will bring the same level of determination and skill to Bradford City. The fact that he chose to join Bradford despite interest from other clubs shows his enthusiasm for the team and their goals for the upcoming season. Can't wait to see him on the pitch and help bring the club back to League One. Up the Bantams!
