Vanarama National League North club Bradford Park Avenue have made a third new signing of the day, bringing in youngster Joe Kearns from National League side Southport on a month`s loan.
Kearns only joined Port in early August.
Kearns, 20, was the captain of Crewe Alexandra’s youth academy under-18 side and signed professional terms with the club in May 2015.
Kearns can operate at right-back but is naturally a centre-half.
Southport manager Andy Bishop felt Kearns would benefit from a spell of prolonged exposure to first-team football and will continue to be in and around the first-team squad upon his return.
