Barrow AFC’s summer recruitment continues to run along apace, as they completed the signing of Scott Quigley, while fellow striker Dior Angus has returned to the club on a permanent transfer.

Four players have now come through the door at Holker Street since the end of last season, following last week’s capture of striker Morgan Penfold and full-back Bradley Barry.

Quigley has signed on a three-year contract after being released by League One side Blackpool, although he arrives with National League experience, having spent the second half of the last campaign on loan at FC Halifax Town.

Angus arrived at the Bluebirds on a similar deal from Port Vale in January and scored two goals in 11 appearances, with his performances enough for manager Ian Evatt to bring him in on a one-year deal, with an option for another season on top of that.

Quigley will certainly offer something different to AFC’s other strikers, as at 6ft 4in, he’ll add a physical presence up front that will allow him to bring others into play, while also posing an aerial threat.

The 26-year-old began his career at Welsh club The New Saints, where he appeared in European competition after winning five consecutive league titles.

His time with the Saints concluded with him scoring three goals in a Champions League first qualifying round tie against Gibraltar side Europa in 2017, as he departed for Blackpool later that summer.

He made 16 appearances for the Seasiders, without finding the net before going out on loan to Wrexham, where scored eight goals in 17 games to restore his confidence.

Quigley began this season at League Two side Port Vale, but he only made two starts whilst there, although he did score in one of them, against Walsall in the Checkatrade Trophy.

He got on the field slightly more regularly during his spell at Halifax, where he scored twice as the Shaymen finished 16th in the National League.

Quigley was actually a clubmate of Angus’ at the Valiants before last Christmas, although the latter will also admit his time there did not go as planned.

The son of former defender Terry Angus, the 25-year-old made his name in non-League, with him playing for Solihull Moors, Kidderminster Harriers and Redditch United, amongst others.

It was with the latter where a prolific first half to the 2017/18 season attracted the attention of Vale, where he signed an 18-month contract.

After a spell on loan at Tamworth, Angus scored his first EFL against Carlisle in April 2018, but only made one more appearance for his parent club.

After scoring 13 goals at Nuneaton Borough while out on loan in the first half of last season, he arrived for his initial spell at Barrow and he’ll now have a more prolonged period to impress.
