FA Cup hero Chib Chilaka will make his first playing return to the CNG Stadium after his new Bradford Park Avenue side were paired with Harrogate Town in the FA Trophy.

Town will host Park Avenue on Saturday, November 16 in the competition’s third qualifying round.

Chilaka made 66 appearances in his two-year spell at Town, scoring 26 goals.

He became a cult hero with the Town faithful after scoring the winner against Torquay United in the FA Cup first round last season.

But gaffer Simon Weaver released the striker at the end of the last campaign after the forward ;lost form.

The 27-year-old signed for Bradford Park Avenue alongside fellow former Town players Lee Elam, Paul Bolland, Luke Dean and Danny Forrest.

However, the latter four have all since left the Horsfall Stadium.

Town were in action against Park Avenue on Monday night in the West Riding County Cup.
