Town midfielder Jake Hibbs has joined neighbours and fellow National League North side Bradford Park Avenue on a month’s loan, subject to paperwork.

Hibbs has started just seven times under Billy Heath this season, making 19 substitute appearances - more than any other Halifax player - and has scored two goals.

The midfielder won a trial competition to earn a contract with the club in 2013, and was part of the side that won the FA Trophy at Wembley last May.

Park Avenue are managed by former Halifax captain Mark Bower and are two places and three points above the relegation zone. They host The Shaymen in a league game on March 11 but it is understood there is a clause in the loan stipulating he cannot play in that game.
