BRADFORD (Park Avenue) have bolstered their defensive options by bringing in Luke Lyons, a Scottish youth international, who has just been released from Leeds United.

He has put pen to paper on a deal with Avenue, as the club look continue to build their stable of young, hungry and talented players, like Jamie Lyons and Jacob Fawcett.

Towering centre half Lyons has represented Scotland four times at Under-17 level and has been training with the club after his release from Leeds.

Lyons' registration was completed a few hours before today's 5pm deadline, so he will be available for selection in tomorrow's away clash with table-topping Gloucester City.
