Bradford (Park Avenue) have secured the services of 23 year old midfielder Jake Hibbs on a 3 month loan from Spennymoor Town.
Hibb’s is the second player to arrive on loan from Spennymoor this week and is no stranger to the Horsfall having previously had a loan spell at the club from then National League North side Halifax Town back in 2017.
Hibbs, won the FA Trophy with Halifax Town in 2016, playing the full 90 minutes in a 1-0 victory over Grimsby Town, as well as being part of the squad who defeated Salford City in the 2016/17 National League North Play-Off Final. He signed for FC Halifax Town in 2013 after being chosen as the successful player in trials run by the club. Spennymoor manager Jason Ainsley brought in Hibbs to bolster his midfield ahead the 2018/19 season but has only made 4 appearances this season, with the most recent being Spennymoors 3-1 defeat to Gateshead on Saturday.
In addition to the arrival of Hibbs the club can confirm that Jon Royle has returned to parent club AFC Telford following his loan spell with the club. The club would like to thank Jon for his efforts in the BPA shirt and wish him all the best for the future.
