BRADFORD (Park Avenue) have made a double swoop ahead of their clash with Spennymoor Town tomorrow.

They have signed defender Josh Heaton and striker Andre Johnson.

Heaton joins from National League North rivals Darlington, while Johnson last featured for Boston United last season.

Heaton, who has featured seven times for Darlington this term, became St Mirren’s record signing last summer, following his participation in Jamie Vardy’s V9 academy.

The 22-year-old never settled north of the border and spent the second half of last season on loan at Kidderminster Harriers, before returning to Darlington in the summer.

He came off the bench in the first half as Avenue picked up their only victory of the season at Darlington’s Blackwell Meadows last month.

Johnson, 23, made 16 appearances for Boston last season while also spending some time at Hednesford Town.

He joined Boston from Alfreton last summer, having also played in the Vanarama National League North for Corby Town before that.

Both Johnson and Heaton go straight into contention for Avenue’s home match against Spennymoor.

Meanwhile, defender Alex Laird has left the club by mutual consent.
