Bradford Park Avenue winger Ben McKenna has left the club to join National League side Southport.

The 23-year-old has appeared in every one of Bradford’s matches this season, making 15 starts and six substitute appearances.

He joined the club in the summer, scoring three goals in his short spell at the Horsfall Stadium.

Two of those goals have come in the last four games, and his recent form has attracted Southport from the league above.

McKenna moves to Haig Avenue with immediate effect, and he will be available for their trip to Boreham Wood this weekend.

The winger arrived at the Horsfall Stadium this summer having left Stalybridge Celtic, where he had spent the last two seasons.

The previous two were spent at Workington, meaning McKenna has now made way over 100 appearances at National League North.

He played for Burnley as a youngster before spells at Carlisle United and Annan Athletic. He has also appeared at junior level for Northern Ireland.
