American football team Furness Phantoms are looking to increase the size of their squad ahead of the 2020 season by holding rookie try outs next month.

The Ulverston-based club are inviting as many people as possible to give a new sport a go during sessions at Ulverston Leisure Centre on Saturday, January 11 and at Pulse Soccer, near Barrow Leisure Centre the following day, with both taking place from 12:30-2:30pm.

The Phantoms struggled for numbers at times last season, as they won just twice in eight games in Division Two North of the BAFA National League.
