It has been a busy summer at Barrow AFC with nine new signings being made (so far) and midfielder Jason Taylor believes the younger arrivals will soon get used to how things are done at Holker Street.

Many of the players that have joined in the last few months are aged 24 or younger, which include teenage loanees Oliver Greaves and Olly Dyson, as well as the likes of Morgan Penfold, Mark Waddington and Patrick Brough.

Taylor accepts that as they are still developing as players, the Bluebirds may have to be patient in terms of them producing consistent performances over the course of the season.

However, the 32-year-old is happy with the way the new faces have bedded in ahead of Saturday's opening game of the season at Wrexham.

Taylor said: "Everyone has settled in really well - obviously, we've got quite a few young lads, so it's a bit of a learning curve sometimes with them.

"We'll have to be patient and hopefully they're picking up everything day in, day out, more and more often and they're going to be successful in the near future for us."

Two players who have been successful during pre-season are wide players Josh Kay and Dior Angus, who both looked in fine form in last Saturday's final friendly against Sheffield United under-23s.

The two combined for the opening goal against the Blades and it was noticeable after they went off how much less potent AFC looked in the absence for the left half-hour.

Taylor has been impressed with what he's seen from the pair, saying: "They've both been really consistent during pre-season.

"They're getting fitter and probably when them two have played we've probably looked at our most dangerous.

"I'm hoping that they can take it into the weekend and long may that continue."

Wrexham was where Angus suffered the ankle injury that effectively ended his season, before he got a chance to really impress during his loan from Port Vale.

However, since making his move to Barrow a permanent one, the 25-year-old has really upped his level of performance, scoring two goals during pre-season and being a constant threat out on the right of the front three.

"Dior has come back and he's had a full pre-season under his belt now," Taylor said.

"He's had time to work with the lads, he's been really consistent, he's a great lad as well and obviously he's been working hard.

"He's getting his reward by putting good performances in and he's chipped in with a few goals during pre-season."
