Farsley Celtic have signed Bradford City U19s defender Noah Wadsworth on a month-long loan.

Bantams academy graduate Noah signed an initial one-year professional contract with the league two side during the summer and is highly regarded by his parent club. In February Noah, 18, had a loan spell at Tadcaster Albion.

Farsley Celtic director of football Pav Singh said: “With the recent injury to Tom Allan and Harry Sheridan’s ongoing achilles problems we are delighted to bring in Noah.

“He will add value to our defensive options. Noah is comfortable across the back four and we are delighted to have him in.”

The Celts also have long-term injury problems to Jack Leckie, who is on a season-long loan from Hull City, and Lewis Turner is recovering following an operation.
