Defender Rhys Bennett joined United on a short-term deal in November, which keeps him at Brunton Park until the January transfer window.

Bennett can play a number of roles and brings a wealth of experience, having amassed over 300 senior career appearances.

Born in Radcliffe, he cut his teeth as a youngster with Bolton Wanderers where he signed his first professional deal. He spent a productive spell on-loan north of the border with Falkirk before making the switch to join Rochdale in the summer of 2012.

A four-year stay at Spotland saw him make over 100 appearances, and he made the hop across country in 2016 to join Mansfield Town. He played almost every game for the Stags over a two-year spell, then followed manager Steve Evans to Peterborough in May 2018.

He played 63 games for the Posh before being released at the end of the last campaign.
