League Two transfers assessed: Bradford City, Stockport County, Stevenage enjoy strong starts to summer window

Bradford City, Stockport County and Stevenage have started strongly as League Two sides bid to prepare their squads for the 2022/23 campaign.

The race to recruit players in League Two is underway, ten days after the transfer window opened, with teams announcing new signings by the day.

Bradford City’s strong start…

Mark Hughes’ Bradford City are among those to impress in the early knockings of the summer window, bringing nine new faces to Valley Parade.

The Bantams have recruited Jake Young and Kian Harratt, who were part of promotion-winning campaigns, which will bring a winning mentality to the dressing room.

Harry Chapman and Jamie Walker’s additions should add creativity to Hughes’ side, while the Welshman will look to add consistency to the talented yet unpredictable Emmanuel Osadebe’s game.

Defensive additions in Matty Platt and deep-lying midfielder Ryan East should create a more solid feel to the City line-up.

Steady additions at Stevenage…

Boro boss Steve Evans is steadily going about his business to assemble the making of a competitive side.

After shipping 68 goals in the last campaign, the defence was an area which needed improving, with the impressive recruitment of Michael Bostwick, Carl Piergianni and Dan Sweeney filling that void.

Aaron Chapman adds to the increasingly experienced squad as he attempts to claim the number one spot.

The Hertfordshire club only found the net 45 times in the previous season, so the additions of proven fourth-tier forwards Jordan Roberts and Danny Rose may give the Boro a new attacking dimension.

Evans’ side could well be the dark horses in the upcoming campaign.

Stockport County pick up National League stars…

The Hatters are back in the EFL after 11 years and look intent on keeping the momentum from their title-winning triumph.

Dave Challinor has raided the fifth tier and added prolific striker Kyle Wootton to an already deadly set of forwards.

The signing of Akil Wright should add a competitive presence to County’s engine room after the 26-year-old started in York City’s promotion.

Joe Lewis and Connor Lemmonheigh-Evans were plucked from Torquay United to see if they have the ability to step up to the heights of League Two.
