PROFILE: WHO IS NATHAN DOYLE?

11 September 2014

Town signed Nathan Doyle on Thursday on a one-year deal - here's his career so far...

Derby-born Nathan Doyle began his career as a youngster at his home-town club, coming through the ranks to make nine appearances for the Rams, making his debut as a 16-year-old in 2003.


After loan spells at Notts County and Bradford he joined Hull in 2007 but in three years on Humberside, Doyle made just five league appearances – although three of these took place in the Premier League.


After a brief loan spell at Barnsley 2009 the midfielder made the move to Oakwell permanent in January 2010 and Doyle went on 89 appearances in the Championship for the Tykes.


Following a loan spell at Preston, in 2012 Doyle was on the move once more, this time joining Bradford. His first season at Valley Parade was a huge success as the Bantams won the League 2 Play-Off final at Wembley. That wasn’t his only appearance under the Wembley arch, however, as Bradford went all the way to the final of the League Cup, only to lose to Swansea.


He played 42 times in all competitions last season as City finished 11th in League 1 before being released at the end of the campaign.
