Olly Dyson's return to Barrow AFC for a second loan spell from Huddersfield came out of the blue, with manager Ian Evatt insisting he was brought back to add extra competition up front during the new season.

Dyson was briefly with the Bluebirds at the end of last year, intended as a replacement for the recalled Tyler Smith, but he only made three substitute appearances before a hamstring tear cut his time at Holker Street short.

The 19-year-old striker is now back on a season-long youth loan from the Championship club and made his first appearance back with AFC in last Saturday's pre-season friendly against Sheffield United under-23s.

He came onto the left wing as a substitute for Josh Kay in the second half, not long after his move back the club was confirmed, but he is expected to also provide competition for fellow forwards Scott Quigley and Byron Harrison through the centre.

Evatt said: "I like Olly as a player and I think when a player becomes available, who's not costing the club any money, we have to take it, especially with Olly.

"He showed us last season what he's about and he's a very talented lad, but I love the intensity he plays at and the pace he plays with, both with and without the ball.

"There are some players at the moment who aren't quite where I want them to be, so we decided to bring Olly in and add competition for places."
