BRADFORD (Park Avenue) have boosted their play-off bid by signing striker Keane Lewis-Potter on loan from Hull City for the rest of the season.

Lewis-Potter is a highly-rated forward who was given a three-year professional contract by Tigers boss Nigel Adkins last month, having netted 17 goals for the under-23s this season.

A regular at training with Adkins' first team, the 18-year-old made his first-team debut as a substitute in January's FA Cup defeat at Millwall.

Adkins said at the time: “He’s a young guy, diminutive in his figure, he’s got a bit of pace and an eye for goal. Let’s not put any pressure on him but let’s be excited that somewhere down the line it’s another player coming through the academy who’s got a bright future at the club.”

Lewis-Potter joins fellow Hull product Charlie Andrew at The Horsfall, the Tigers goalkeeper also being on loan at Avenue until the end of the season.

Park Avenue chief executive Damian Irvine said: “We’re really pleased to have secured the services of Keane.

"We’ve been looking to add some attacking support since Macauley Langstaff completed his loan period and cannot speak highly enough of Hull City and their staff who have been exceptionally helpful.

“We have plenty to offer as a club in terms of opportunities, and as with Charlie Andrew and Romoney Chrichlow-Noble, Keane will be able to demonstrate his wares in a great environment competing at the top end of the league into the big games at the end of the season.”

Lewis-Potter is available for Saturday's home clash against Alfreton.

Park Avenue are fifth in National League North, well placed to reach the play-offs despite a midweek defeat at home to AFC Telford.
