Departed Bradford City man snapped up by non-league title winners on two-year deal

Yeovil Town have signed Finn Cousin-Dawson following his departure from Bradford City, as announced by their official club website.

Bradford City made the decision to cut ties with the defender at the end of last season. His contract at Valley Parade expires this summer and he has linked up with his new club as a free agent.

Cousin-Dawson, 21, rose up through the academy ranks at Valley Parade and was a regular for the League Two side at various different youth levels. He made his senior debut back in September 2020, the same year he was handed a professional deal by the Yorkshire outfit.

Yeovil Town have now announced that he has made the move down south as they prepare their return to the National League under former Swindon Town boss Mark Cooper. He has penned a two-year contract with the Glovers after their recent promotion from the National League South.

Cousin-Dawson made 40 appearances for Bradford City’s first-team but his last came in 2022.

He was loaned out to the likes of Brighouse Town, Spennymoor Town and Blyth Spartans over recent years to get experience under his belt.

The former Nothern Ireland youth international, who played for their Under-21’s, spent the past campaign in the National League North for the latter and played 46 matches altogether, scoring three goals from defence.

Despite his impressive performances in the sixth tier, the Bantams have opted against offering him an extension and that has opened the door for Yeovil Town to swoop in now.

What next for Bradford City?

Bradford City will be hoping that they can get promoted to League One next year. They missed out on the play-offs last season on the final day.

Graham Alexander remains in charge and has the chance to bring in some more new faces over the course of the next couple of months.

Cousin-Dawson wasn’t the only player to be released by them recently. Dylan Youmbi, Harry Chapman, Harvey Rowe, Heath Richardson, Isaac Robinson, Liam Ridehalgh, Luke Hendrie, Matt Derbyshire, Noah Wadsworth and Sam Bentley also left.
