Hibs sign youngster Steven Bradley

Last updated : 04 July 2019 By Steve Forbes

Hibs have today announced the signing of young winger Steven Bradley.

The 17-year-old has signed a 3-year-deal and will join the Hibees development squad after his youth contract with Queen's Park expired.

Bradley played 5 games for the Spiders in Scottish League Two last season, and looks an exciting addition for the club.

Speaking to the official website, the youngster said:

“It’s a real honour to have joined a club the size of Hibernian and I’ll be doing everything I can to make the most of this great opportunity.

“It was an easy decision to make because it’s obviously a club that gives young players an opportunity if they deserve it but it was also good to hear about the development programme I’ll have to improve every area of my game.

“Everyone has made me feel really welcome and I’m looking forward to getting started.”

Editor's View:

I don't know much about this kid, but it looks like it could be quite an exciting addition if his reputation is anything to go by.

The fact that Queen's played him in League Two at just 17 is also a very good sign that Hibs have picked up a talented kid.

Hibs have pulled out of the SPFL Reserve League and will instead set-up their own programme of games against sides at various levels.

The Hibees DV Squad played Stirling Albion's full side, Huddersfield U20's and Middlesbrough U23's at the tail end of last season.

Exsposing an exciting player with Bradley's quality, to that type of quality opposition, can only be a good one.
