Born in the northern English town of Barrow, Beadling grew up in Perth.

He played state football for Western Australia and represented Australia at Under-13 level, before eventually returning to England to join Sunderland's academy.

Beadling, who has yet to play for the Black Cats' first-team, went on loan to Bury last season.

Now the 22-year-old will spend the next six months at Dunfermline.



Beadling, who is out of contract at the end of this season, has been a regular for Sunderland's Under-23s and has been on the bench several times for the first-team.

He heads to the Pars in search of senior football. The club is currently fifth on the table in the Scottish Championship.
