Unibond Premier Division club Bradford Park Avenue have appointed Lee Sinnott as their new manager.

The 43-year-old has been out of work for four months since he left League Two Port Vale and takes over from John Deacy, who becomes assistant manager.

The former Farsley Celtic boss told BBC Radio Leeds: "It feels good to be back in management.

"I'm looking forward to the challenge ahead. I'm delighted to be working for what I feel is an ambitious club."

The former Bradford City and Huddersfield Town player has experience of the Unibond League with Farsley.

The play-offs are possible. Like at Farsley, they have the potential to reach the Blue Square Premier at least

New manager Lee Sinnott on Bradford Park Avenue's potential

Sinnott guided the West Yorkshire side from the Unibond into the Blue Square Premier before his move to Port Vale.

Bradford PA currently sit just a point and place outside of the play-off spots in the Premier Division and 11 points off the top.

Sinnott, who is taking legal action against Port Vale, added: "I've reflected on my time at Port Vale and feel I'm a stronger and better manager for it.

"You have to learn from negatives like that. We keep all options open and the play-offs are possible.

"I'm not coming in here and sounding from the rooftops that we will do this and that, I don't work that way.

"Like at Farsley, they have the potential to reach the Blue Square Premier at least."
