Bradford Park Avenue striker Jack Ryan has been released from his contract in order to join Workington on a permanent basis.

The forward joined the club in the summer but had been restricted to just two starts and a handful of substitute appearances.

He now moves to Workington having failed to score during his time at the Horsfall Stadium.

Ryan played 90 minutes for the Reds in their 1-0 County Cup away win against Frizington Red Star on Saturday.

The front man became the club’s eighth signing in the summer following his release from Preston North End, where he made just one Championship appearance.

He had impressed in loan spells however, notably scoring eight times in 16 appearances during a stint at Stockport County in the 2014-15 campaign.

Meanwhile, defender Joe Kearns has rejoined parent club Southport following the conclusion of his loan period.

Kearns made seven starts and two substitute appearances during his two-month spell at Bradford, but has mainly been left on the bench during Mark Bower’s time in charge.
