Bell started his career at Rochdale and spent time on loan at Chester and Droylsden before a permanent move to Gateshead in 2016.

After further loan spells at Altrincham, Chester and Alfreton, Bell signed for Stockport in 2018, helping them earn promotion to the National League during the 2018-19 season.

He scored six goals for County last season, starting both games against The Shaymen, and making 37 league appearances as the club finished just outside the play-offs.

But he has made just two appearances for Jim Gannon’s side this season, both as a late substitute.

Bell is Town’s second signing in the space of a week after the addition of midfielder Neil Danns last week on a short-term deal.
