Barrow AFC have tied down one of their key players from their promotion-winning campaign after announcing Scott Quigley has signed a new three-year contract with the club.

Quigley finished as the National League's top scorer in the campaign just finished, notching 20 goals to give former Bluebirds manager Ian Evatt the firepower up front he had previously lacked.

The news of the 27-year-old signing on until 2023 is a timely boost for the Bluebirds, who lost Quigley's fellow marksman John Rooney on Monday, after he signed for Stockport County.

Quigley is likely to remain an important figure for AFC under new boss David Dunn, who met his free-scoring front man face-to-face for the first time during Barrow's National League trophy presentation at Holker Street.

It will also be his first real go in the English Football League, after he struggled to break into Blackpool's line-up during his time there and only one of his 11 league appearances during his loan with Port Vale came from the start.
