Last updated at 14:54, Wednesday, 26 September 2012
POWERFUL prop Andrew Dawson has signed a new deal with Barrow Raiders for 2013.
The young Millomite made the step up from the amateur game this season and had made five starts and 18 substitute appearances for coach Darren Holt in his maiden season.
Raiders director of rugby Andy Gaffney said: “We are well aware that we will need a very strong pack of forwards if we are to survive in the Championship and there is no more promising prop than Andy.
“He is going to get better and better with each season and I am really pleased that he is going to continue in a Raiders shirt for the next 12 months.”
Dawson’s signing means Barrow have now recruited 15 players ahead of next season, with James Nixon, Scott Kaighan, Dan Toal and Adam Clay also announced this week.

Have your say
Good to see The Big Bruski putting pen to paper, would of been plenty of offers on the table no doubt. Now time to kick on and work towards the next level.
Well done Andrew from all at the Bake House in Millom. If we weren't supplying you with two meat and 'tatie' pies, a steak slice, a sausage roll and caramel shortbread, we don't think you'd have the athletic physique you have now
