Swain, 18, completed his move in time to feature in the Skrill North side's 4-0 defeat to North Ferriby United on Monday evening.

Swain, who progressed through the Bantams' youth ranks, signed his first professional deal with the club earlier this summer.

He was named among the substitutes for last season's Captial One Cup fourth-round tie at Wigan and the FA Cup first-round replay against Northampton, but has yet to make his senior debut for Phil Parkinson's side.

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
