Oliver Crankshaw has today left Bradford City AFC to join National League side Stockport County for an undisclosed fee. 

The winger has signed a three-year contract at Edgeley Park, having joined the Bantams from Wigan Athletic in January. 

Crankshaw made 27 appearances for City, scoring once. 

The 23-year-old said: "This is a bittersweet moment for me, but I have to do what I feel is right for my footballing career and development as a player.

"I would like to start off by saying a huge thanks to all Bradford City supporters who welcomed me with open arms through COVID and during the start of this season.

"Stockport County have offered me a platform to play and achieve my aims as a footballer, which I felt I could not turn down.

"I would like to thank everyone at Bradford City for the opportunity and wish the club the very best for the future."

Bantams boss Derek Adams said: "Ollie leaves with our best wishes, having received a substantial offer from Stockport which he felt he could not turn down.

"We would have liked to keep him at the club and seen him fight for his place in the side, but understand and respect his decision to leave. 

"As always, we will never stand in the way of anyone who sees their future away from Valley Parade. 

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ollie for his efforts at Bradford City."
