Unlike most new players when they join a new club, striker Byron Harrison had got to know his teammates and gained an idea as to how they play by the time he rejoined Barrow AFC.

Harrison, who previously played for the Bluebirds between 2016 and 2018, scoring 32 goals in 67 games, initially came back on trial, as he tried to regain fitness after his release from Barnet earlier in the summer.

The 32-year-old did enough in his appearances during pre-season to persuade manager Ian Evatt, his former teammate at Chesterfield, to bring him back for a second spell.

Harrison said: “The boys here are friendly anyway, so they welcomed me straight in.

“Some of them I’d already played with at the club and some of the others I’d played with before, or against.

“At this level, you play with so many different players it feels like everybody knows everyone.

“The idea from the manager is clear and I think for any team, that message being clear is the most important thing.”
