Barrow AFC manager Ian Evatt is pleased with the attacking options he now has at his disposal, following Monday's arrival of strikers Dior Angus and Scott Quigley.

Angus is someone who is already familiar to Evatt, following his loan spell with the Bluebirds in the second half of last season, while Quigley is the second new forward to sign this summer after last week's capture of Morgan Penfold.

AFC were the joint-lowest scorers out of the clubs who finished in the top half of the National League and Evatt is hoping the competition amongst his squad will drive up standards.

He said: "We have some excellent options now - we've got Josh Kay, we've got Morgan, Scott Quigley, Dior and Jack Hindle, and also Rhys Turner, who's coming back for pre-season, so we've got some serious firepower.

"The fact that we play three up there obviously means that we probably need to carry six, so at the moment, provided Rhys comes through pre-season, we have a very good six."

Quigley is someone who has previous experience of the National League, having spent time on loan with both Wrexham and FC Halifax Town from previous club Blackpool.

He led the line against the Bluebirds during the Shaymen's 0-0 draw at Holker Street in January and his tall stature (6ft 4in) will provide a different dynamic up front, but Evatt insists he's more than just a target man.

He's said: "He's not just that, he's an all-rounder. Yes, he's 6ft 4in, he's a big boy but he can also run.

"He's quick, he's two-footed and he can play with the ball on the floor as well, which is important in our system and the way we play and do things.

"He also gives us that option of crossing the ball and getting into the box and having a big target, and I'm really pleased that we've got him. Scott is a fantastic player."
