Bradford (Park Avenue) have confirmed the signing of Chesterfield defender Ryley D’Sena on a deal until the end of the season. 

The 20-year-old centre-back was born in Sydney, Australia, and has experience at Larne and Bangor in Northern Ireland. 

He joined Chesterfield's academy last season, and earlier this season, was gaining first-team experience at Stocksbridge Park Steels, of the Northern Premier League East Division, who he joined on loan in November.

D’Sena has also played for Chesterfield’s under-23 Central Midlands Alliance side.

The young defender was named on the bench for Avenue's NPL Premier Division game at Workington on Saturday, but he did not come on during their excellent 2-0 away win.

The result leaves Avenue just four points from safety with a game in hand.
