Winger Aidan Chippendale has joined Bradford Park Avenue from league rivals Stalybridge Celtic. 

The 24-year-old Bradfordian has been with Celtic since 2014, but now joins Avenue until the end of the season.

Chippendale, the brother of former Avenue forward Callum, started his youth career at Bradford City before moving to Huddersfield Town while still a youngster.

He made one senior appearance at Huddersfield, and spent time on loan at York City and Inverness Caledonian Thistle before joining Accrington Stanley in 2013.

Spells at Bury, Chester, AFC Fylde and Ashton United followed before Chippendale joined Stalybridge at the start of the 2014/15 campaign.

He has made sixty-eight appearances at Bower Fold, and grabbed 12 goals in that time.

“I’m looking forward to getting involved and playing,” Chippendale said. “I can’t wait to get started.

“Being from Bradford, I have always paid an interest in the club and look out for their results and to see how they are doing.

“As soon as I heard that Avenue were interested in me I jumped at the opportunity.

“Having seen what manager Mark Bower did at Guiseley, I’m sure the club will be taking steps forward and recent form shows that.

“I come here to try score and create as many goals as I can for the club and help the team push up the league.”

Chippendale played 81 minutes in Stalybridge’s 1-0 victory at the Horsfall Stadium earlier this season, and goes straight into the Avenue squad for this Saturday’s trip to Harrogate Town.

Returning to the Horsfall, initially for a month, is young striker Reece Webb-Foster from Sky Bet League One neighbours Bradford City.

He has tasted first-team action with the Bantams, and last season had a brief successful loan spell with Avenue before being recalled to play for his parent club.

As well as Avenue, the 18-year-old has had loan spells with Guiseley AFC and Harrogate Town earlier this season.
