Left back Adam Chicksen became City’s first signing of pre-season back in June, penning a two-year contract at the Northern Commercials Stadium. The defender, who can also feature from right back, spent last season in Sky Bet League One with Charlton Athletic. Chicksen twice featured against the Bantams during the 2016/17 campaign, playing his part in two strong Charlton performances. The full back has also played against the Bantams in League One during spells with Gillingham and Fleetwood Town. After joining his hometown club Milton Keynes Dons aged just 14, Chicksen made his senior bow for the Buckinghamshire club just two years later. Chicksen would go on to make 78 appearances for MK Dons, with his impressive form earning him a move to the Championship in 2013 with Brighton & Hove Albion. Having missed the first half of the 2013/14 campaign due to injury, Chicksen went on to feature in the Championship Play-Offs for the Seagulls. During his time at Brighton, Chicksen went on loan to Gillingham and Fleetwood Town in the 2014/15 season. While at Fleetwood, Chicksen helped the Cod Army to a top half finish in their first season at League One level. Chicksen also spent a spell back on loan at Gillingham the following year, as the promotion-chasing Gills tried to claim a play-off spot.
