Barrow AFC transfer embargo lifted

BARROW AFC have announced their transfer embargo has been lifted this afternoon.

The embargo was put in place by the Football Conference last week over an unpaid National Insurance bill.

It was revealed following Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Kidderminster Harriers, after the club’s attempt to sign defender Danny O’Donnell from Stockport. As a result, only 13 players were named in the squad for the 6-1 thrashing by Luton on Tuesday.

The bill has now been paid by the club and an official announcement on the club website said: “Following the payment to PAYE of outstanding monies, the Football Conference lifted the club’s registration embargo at lunchtime on Wednesday.

“The club is now free to transfer or sign new players and extend existing deals if applicable.”

See Thursday's Evening Mail for full story and reaction from chairman Brian Keen and assistant boss Ashley Hoskin.
