SHANE Killock has signed a new deal at Bradford Park Avenue.

After shaking off injury problems in the early stages of the season, the central defender went on to make 27 appearances in all competitions this season and his impressive form proved vital in Avenue’s play-off push.

The 29-year-old was released by Huddersfield Town after just one first-team appearance but went on to establish himself as one of the sixth tier's most sought-after defenders.

He achieved promotion to non-league football’s top tier with AFC Telford United as captain and has also represented Ossett Albion, Oxford United, Harrogate Town and Guiseley.

He becomes the fourth player to be confirmed as a member of Avenue’s 2018/19 squad, following in the footsteps of Adam Boyes, Oli Johnson and Nicky Clee.
