Bradford City AFC is delighted to announce the signing of defender Romoney Crichlow - on a season-long loan - from Huddersfield Town.
The centre-back arrives at Valley Parade on a deal until the conclusion of the 2022/23 campaign, on the back of loan spells at both Swindon Town and Plymouth Argyle last season.
Born in Luton, the 23-year-old joined Huddersfield in 2017 from non-league Enfield Borough, before making his senior debut for the Terriers in September 2020.
Loan spells at Bradford (Park Avenue), Hartlepool United and Welling United followed, before an impressive stint at Swindon throughout the first half of 2021/22.
Crichlow was recalled by City’s West Yorkshire neighbours after 23 appearances at The County Ground and immediately sent to Sky Bet League One Plymouth for the second half of the campaign.
He said: “I am excited to be here. There have been a few negotiations over the summer so I am just glad to have it sorted and am looking forward to getting started.
“When you look at the manager here and Bradford City as a club, it was always an attractive proposition.
“I have been at Huddersfield for a number of years now, so have quite a few team-mates who have played here and all said positive things about the club and their time here.
“I am a front-footed defender but will die for a clean sheet and try to chip in with a few goals.
“I am here to win games and cannot wait to get started.”
Bantams boss Mark Hughes said: “We are really pleased to have brought Romoney in on loan for the season, and again thank our friends at Huddersfield Town for their hard work and co-operation in making the deal happen.
“At a young age, Romoney has maturity beyond his years in his play. He is an accomplished footballer in possession as well as carrying important defensive qualities.
“He showed at Swindon Town last season how he can perform at this level, and his impressive spell there was rewarded with a loan move to a side in the division above for the second half of the campaign.
“Romoney fits in well with the style of play we are trying to implement here, and has been a target of ours since the very start of the summer.
“He is another player we are excited to be welcoming to the club, and we look forward to having him in pre-season training with us when we return later this week.”
Crichlow will be sponsored by Pickersgill Financial Planning for the 2022/23 season, with his signing subject to the relevant EFL and FA clearances.
