SQUAD UPDATE: Hailston And Cottle Return!

Manager Danny Greaves is happy to confirm that Will Hailston and Dan Cottle will be rejoining The Robins squad next season.

Both players started last season at Badgers Hill, before returning to Bradford Town on dual registration.

Cottle scored a wonderful long-range consolation goal in the 4-1 defeat against Basingstoke Town back in August.

The duo would go on to have a very successful season at Trowbridge Road in a bombastic forward line, which included new Robins' signing Martin Lenihan.

Hailston scored 25 goals in 33 starts for The Bobcats, a goals-per-game ratio which was only bettered by one player in the league last season.

Cottle would be another player that to reach double figures as Bradford Town finished in seventh place in the Western League Premier Division at the culmination of the 2018/19 season.

The form of Hailston and Cottle gave Greaves a decision to make regarding their futures, deciding to bring them back after recent conversations.

He said: "They both have a point to prove and showed their hunger to return, after I met them a couple of weeks ago.

"We struggled in the final third last season and these two have proven over several years that they know where the net is.

"They were well sought after by a number of Southern League sides, so I am delighted they have decided to return."
