Bradford City have handed teenage striker Adam Baker his first professional contract at the end of his two-year Apprenticeship.

Baker, who has featured for the reserves on a number of occasions this season, has been given a one-year deal with the Bantams.

Manager Phil Parkinson said: “The criteria for earning a pro contract is simply whether we feel they’re going to be good enough to play in the first team next year.”

“It’s obviously pleasing for Adam to be offered a professional contract. He deserves it and he now needs to go away in the summer and work really hard to give him a chance of making a real statement once the lads come back for pre-season training.”
