Barrow AFC have signed Port Vale forward Dior Angus on loan until the end of the season.

Angus is the third new player to arrive at Holker Street this month after the signings of fellow striker Kyle McFarlane and experienced defender Sam Hird bolstered Ian Evatt’s squad.

The 24-year-old, who is from Coventry, is the second generation of his family to have played professionally, as his father Terry played for Northampton Town and Fulham during his career.

Angus came through the ranks at Solihull Moors, going out on loan to Leamington and Banbury United during the process, before making his senior debut for them in a 2-0 win against Guiseley in October 2012.

He played for the Moors regularly until the end of that season, scoring seven goals in 33 appearances before signing for then-Conference side Kidderminster Harriers in the summer of 2013.

However, things didn’t work out for him at Aggborough and, after a loan at Worcester City, he returned to Solihull before heading on to Daventry Town.

Angus then spent the 2015/16 season at Stratford Town before reviving his career at Redditch United, where 17 goals in the first 23 games of last season persuaded Port Vale to sign him.

He made his debut for the Valiants against Forest Green in January 2018, but has found first-team appearances hard to come by at the League Two club since and has recently been loaned to Tamworth and Nuneaton Borough.
