Bradley set to quit Bathgate to get a game
FORMER Hearts youngster Mark Bradley is poised to quit Bathgate Thistle to ensure regular first-team football.
The midfielder, who helped the Creamery Park side to the final of the OVD Scottish Junior Cup and to the runners-up spot in the Super League last season, has decided the time is right to move on after an influx of new faces in his position.
Despite playing regularly last term, the ex-Doncaster Rovers, Berwick Rangers and Cowdenbeath player was told he would not be guaranteed a starting place when he asked for showdown talks with manager Willie Hill.
And there are likely to be no shortage of offers for the playmaker, who has already had talks with junior giants Linlithgow Rose.
"I'm in the process of moving on because I want to make sure I'm playing every week whereas Willie is looking to rotate things next season," said Bradley, who won the BP Youth Cup and Reserve League while on the books at Tynecastle.
"I've been training with Linlithgow Rose and talking to Jim Sinnet and we're still discussing things.
"The facilities there are excellent and they are a good club so there is the possibility I could go there but I would also be interested in going back senior if the opportunity came up."
Martin Clancy, Sean Sweeney and Brian Vaugh have also left Bathgate.
Elsewhere, Musselburgh goalkeeper Scott Cantley has left the Olive Bank side to move to Super League side Whitburn.
