Bradford (Park Avenue) winger Rod Orlando-Young has joined Ilkeston Town on a permanent transfer.
Orlando-Young lined up for The Robins as they won promotion from the Midland Football League Premier Division under the guidance of now-Avenue assistant Lee Fowler.
The 24-year-old, who had previously won the chance to train with Bundesliga side Red Bull Leipzig, played just once in a short stint at the Horsfall Stadium.
He came off the bench at half-time of the 4-0 defeat to Alfreton, missing a glorious chance to bring Avenue back into the game, skewing wise Isaac Marriott’s pow centre when it looked a certain goal.
Everyone at Avenue would like to thank Rod for all his efforts with the club, and wish him all the best for the future.
