Zimbabwe-born midfielder Bradley Pritchard was drafted in on loan by gaffer Darren Sarll in late March 2016 with Boro’ struggling at the wrong end of the League Two table; Sarll clearly thinking Pritchard’s services would be a useful addition in our battle to avoid the drop.
At the time, the midfielder was on the books of Leyton Orient and been a pretty regular fixture in their side. It was surprising, therefore, to see him arrive at the Lamex in those circumstances. The experience he had to offer, however, wasn’t something Boro’ could afford at the time.
Bradley Pritchard: Before Boro’
Before signing a two-year deal with Orient in 2014, Pritchard was at Charlton; a move that had come about after taking on the role as a volunteer performance analyst at the Addicks and then impressing in a trial. It was the player’s first step up into the Football League.
Carshalton Athletic is where Pritchard’s career started, before moving to the East Midlands with Nuneaton Borough and Tamworth. Hayes and Yeading United was the next port of call in 2010; a club at which he impressed the supporters with his performance.
