TWO of our clubs have waved goodbye to some young talent.

Promising left-back Jordan Chippendale has departed Northern Counties East League Premier Division side Albion Sports to join Glasshoughton Welfare in the league below.

Elsewhere, teenage goalkeeper Jacob Carney has left Northern Premier League North West Division outfit Brighouse Town to join top-flight Portadown in Northern Ireland.

Carney was on loan at Brighouse from Manchester United.

Chippendale has made his name in Harrogate Town’s youth sides, and did spend some time at Campion a couple of years ago.

He had a spell at Garforth Town before joining Albion, where his best moment came in November 2019.

He came on as a substitute in a derby at Silsden, and fired home an 88th minute free-kick to earn his side a point in a 1-1 draw, despite them being down to 10 men.

Albion only picked up 11 points away from home in the whole of last season, as they finished second-bottom, but have been much improved following a squad revamp and managerial change in the summer, and they currently sit 10th with the league suspended.

Chippendale has left to join a Glasshoughton side that are 13th in Division One of the NCEL.

As for Carney, he joined Brig on a season-long loan deal from United in mid-October.

He made seven appearances for the club, as well as picking up a Player of the Month award for his efforts.

But the 19-year-old has suffered like many at non-league level from seasons being suspended, whereas Portadown are still playing.

They are due to visit Carrick this weekend.
