Departure of duo confirmed

30 May 2013

As Bantams boss Phil Parkinson continues his preparations for the forthcoming 2013/2014 campaign, the football club can confirm that the duo of Dean Overson and Steve Williams will be leaving City when their current contracts expire at the end of June.

Both players will not be offered new contracts after being told by Parkinson last year that they didn't feature in his plans and they were free to find other clubs.

Subsequently, neither player featured for the Bantams' first-team at any point last season, although Williams did make a couple of reserve outings back in February as he recovered from a serious achilles injury.

The pair were also not given a squad number for the 2012/2013 season as a result.

Williams, who joined City from non-league side Bamber Bridge back in 2009, made 78 appearances for Bradford during his time at the Coral Windows Stadium.

Overson arrived at Valley Parade from Burnley in 2011 but didn't play in any first-team fixtures during his time at the football club.

The duo's confirmed departure from the club comes days after it was revealed that young attacker Adam Baker had also left the Coral Windows Stadium.

The football club would like to thank Dean and Steve for all their efforts during their time with Bradford and wish them all the very best for the future.
