BRADFORD (Park Avenue) have signed former Doncaster defender Mitchell Lund.

The 22-year-old spent his development years at Rovers before making more than 60 senior appearances at League One and League Two level – including loan spells with Wrexham and Morecambe.

Park Avenue boss Garry Thompson worked with Lund at Morecambe last season.

Like Ben Hedley who also joined Bradford this pre-season, Thompson saw enough to pursue the signature of Lund prior to the first pre-season match against Hemsworth Miners tomorrow.

Thompson remarked: “We’re delighted to sign another player of the experience and quality of Mitch.

"He has an excellent background and experience of playing higher up the pyramid at a very strong period of Doncaster Rovers' history and will provide us with additional quality and poise from the back.

“I’ve seen first-hand the attitude and character of Mitch whilst at Morecambe. He has been training with us since we came back and fits perfectly the quality of individual we want to represent The Avenue."
