Profile

Talented midfielder Jake joined Avenue on a month-long loan deal in early March, switching from near rivals FC Halifax Town. The youngster initially moved to the Shay four years ago, when he won a trial competition to earn a contract. Hibbs has spent time on loan at Hyde United and AFC Telford United in the National League North, before finding himself part of the first team picture at Halifax in non-league’s top flight last season. He made a total of 38 appearances for Halifax last term, including 90 minutes in Town’s victory in the FA Trophy final at Wembley, playing alongside current Avenue midfielder Nicky Wroe. Hibbs has featured 18 times under Billy Heath this season, but only started six games as Halifax attempt to push for the play-offs in the National League North.
