Promising young Castleford footballer Elliot Baker has made a great start to his second season with the Bradford City Academy.

Now in the under 11s, Elliot has begun the campaign in great form, scoring in each of their first five games, including against Middlesbrough, who are ranked sixth in the country.

Elliot, pictured above in a match this season, also notched his first hat-trick for Bradford City against Lincoln City Academy when the City team won 8-4.

Former Townville Allstars and Ferry Park Juniors player Elliot is a pupil at Fairburn View Primary School.

He can play as a central striker or as a winger and showed his prowess in front of goal when scoring 45 in a season with Townville in the Charles Rice League.
