Career[edit]

Hull City[edit]

Born in Hessle, East Riding of Yorkshire,[1] East progressed through the Hull City youth ranks and has been with the club since 2003.[2] hile at the youth ranks at Hull City, Bradley met his childhood friend, Sonny Bradley, who he knows for more than ten years.[3] He was offered his first professional contract at the club in the summer of 2010.[4]

He made his professional debut on 9 August 2011, in the Football League Cup 2–0 defeat to Macclesfield Town at the KC Stadium.[5] Despite this, East says his debut was "proud day for him" and that he played pretty well.[6] His second appearance came on 28 January 2012, in a FA Cup 0–1 defeat against Crawley Town.[7] At the end of 2012–13 season, he was released by Hull.[8]

Loan Spells[edit]

On 29 August, East moved to Northampton Town on a month-long loan.[9] He made his debut a day later, in a Football League Cup 1–3 defeat against Wolverhampton.[10] On 1 September, he made his league debut, in a 2–3 defeat against Plymouth.[11] On 2 October, his loan was extended until 5 January 2013.[12] He returned to Hull with 19 appearances.[13]

On 7 March 2013 he joined Gillingham on loan until the end of the season.[14] Two days later, he made his Gills debut, in a 2–1 win against Plymouth.[15] His second appearance came on the 12th, against Exeter City.[16]

Portsmouth[edit]

On 9 May 2013, East signed a two-year deal with League Two side Portsmouth.[17] Upon joining Portsmouth, East was given number 4 shirt.[18]

He made his debut for the club on 10 August 2013, in a 2–2 draw against Accrington Stanley. Since then, East would be often used in first team ins and out right through the first half of the season, having played at left-back, right-back and in the centre of midfield.[19] However, during a match against Wycombe Wanderers, which resulted a 2–2 draw, East was substituted and carried off with a stretcher after he "falling awkwardly as he went up for a header." Following this, East was taken to hospital, where it concluded that East didn't fractured his neck.[20] Two weeks later, on 26 December 2013, East made his return from injury, in a 1–0 win over Dagenham & Redbridge.[21] But in the next match, against Northampton Town on 29 December 2013, he sustained ankle injury that left him out for three months.[22][23] After three months out, East returned to training following his recovery on his ankle.[24] He scored his first goal on his return from injury where he "struck after minutes, volleying over keeper Matt Duke from 10 yards", as Portsmouth beat Northampton Town 1–0 on 21 April 2014.[25]

East joined non-league Aldershot Town on a one-month loan deal on 13 January 2015.[26]
