Due to a shortage in the centre position Barrow have brought in Matty Costello from Super-League side Salford for the Cumbrian clash with Workington Town kick off 3pm

With Hakim Miloudi under suspension and Declan Hulme unavailable Ryan Shaw moved into the centre role last weekend but he has struggled with a foot injury and is rested.

Costello is an established centre having started his career at St Helens making 26 appearances before joining Salford on a three year deal in 2020 where he has played 18 times.

Jake Carter comes back into the line-up partnering Ryan Jonhston in the absence of Jarrad Sammut who plays for Malta against Montenegro tonight.

Coach Paul Crarey said ahead of the game with Town “We are short in the centres and have played lads out of position, so its good to have Matty on board.

"He is a good centre with plenty of Super-League experience and along with the retuning Gary Wheeler we will be stable.

"Jake (Carter) comes back for Sammut, and we have no problem with him and Ryan (Johnston) at half back, they played together earlier in the season when Sammut was injured and went well.

"We know we are in for a tough game despite Workington still searching for their first win this season, there is never an easy game when we meet.

"We have had some tough games recently, so we have to get back on the winning trail and it,s important that we cut down on errors."

Danny Langtree is still on the side-lines with a bicep injury, so Sam Eshe is retained for another loan spell from Wakefield.

Town will be looking to their dangerous half backs Carl Forber and Jamie Doran to lead from the front and have brought in twins Connor and Curtis Davies from French club Villenueve.

Town have done a months swap deal with Glen Riley coming in with Perry Singleton moving to Whitehaven.

Also back is Barrow born Luke Broadbent on loan from Warrington.

Barrow Coach Paul Crarey has squashed rumours that Tee Ritson is off to Leeds or any other club.Crarey said “Tee Ritson is going nowhere he is on a three year contract and I have had no notification from anyone, Agents or any Clubs.

"We are not in the process of farming him out to anyone he is one of our best players.

Cumbria lost one of their greatest ever players this week following the death of Arnie (Boxer) Walker.

The 70 year old had a great career with Whitehaven and Workington also playing for England and Great Britain.

Arnie played with many star players including the Gorley Brothers -Les and Peter and Eddie Bowman.
