Career[edit]

Hull City[edit]

Born in Hessle, East Riding of Yorkshire,[2] East progressed through the Hull City youth ranks and has been with the club since 2003.[3] hile at the youth ranks at Hull City, Bradley met his childhood friend, Sonny Bradley, who he knows for more than ten years.[4] He was offered his first professional contract at the club in the summer of 2010.[5]

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

Loan Spells[edit]

On 29 August, East moved to Northampton Town on a month-long loan.[10] He made his debut a day later, in a Football League Cup 1–3 defeat against Wolverhampton.[11] On 1 September, he made his league debut, in a 2–3 defeat against Plymouth.[12] On 2 October, his loan was extended until 5 January 2013.[13] He returned to Hull with 19 appearances.[14]

On 7 March 2013 he joined Gillingham on loan until the end of the season.[15] Two days later, he made his Gills debut, in a 2–1 win against Plymouth.[16] His second appearance came on the 12th, against Exeter City.[17]

Portsmouth[edit]

On 9 May 2013, East signed a two-year deal with League Two side Portsmouth.[18] Upon joining Portsmouth, East was given number 4 shirt.[19]

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.[20] 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.[21] Two weeks later, on 26 December 2013, East made his return from injury, in a 1-0 win over Dagenham & Redbridge.[22] But in the next match, against Northampton Town on 29 December 2013, he sustained ankle injury that left him out for three months.[23][24] After three months out, East returned to training following his recovery on his ankle.[25] 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.[26]
