Duo Leave On Loan

posted in: First Team News, News | 0

Jon Moran and Brad Dockerty have both left the club on loan, joining Stafford Rangers and Pontefract Collieries respectively.

Both players joined the club in the summer, but have struggled to force their way into the side recently, with injury and illness hampering their progress.

Dockerty in particular impressed fans over the summer and has grabbed three league goals so far this term, with his move to Pontefract coming due to a change in personal circumstances.

Avenue boss Mark Bower explained: “Brad’s work patterns have changed recently and he has been struggling to commit to training over the past couple of weeks.

“The loan spell will give him a chance to play games again, and we can keep an eye on his progress.

“Together with Brad we will re-assess the situation when his loan spell ends.”

Dockerty will join Pontefract until January, while centre-back Moran has signed an initial one-month loan deal with Stafford.

The defender has been out injured after starting the season with a string of appearances, but is yet to feature under Bower.

“Game time will be of great benefit to Jon,” the Bradford manager said.

“He hasn’t featured over the past few weeks due to a minor injury, and he needs to now get back on the pitch.”

Meanwhile, Cieron Keane and Kemy Agustien have both left the club following short spells at Avenue.

The club would like to thank the pair for their efforts while with the club, and wish them all the best for the future.
