Barrow AFC have continued their recruitment spree ahead of next season with the signing of attacking midfielder Callum Gribbin.

Gribbin becomes the Bluebirds' sixth summer signing, with the former Manchester United youngster joining on a one-year contract, which comes with the option of a further year.

The 21-year-old is looking forward to his first crack at senior football at Holker Street, having built up his fitness with Sheffield United during the last 12 months.

Gribbin came through the ranks with United and played in the same youth team as Marcus Rashford and Axel Tuanzebe, featuring in the UEFA Youth League during his time at Old Trafford.

He once scored a hat-trick while playing for United's under-18s against Liverpool in 2016, while he trained with the club's first team under managers Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho.

However, his progress was ultimately stunted by injuries and after only managing 24 minutes across two games for their under-23s, he was released by United last year.

He was taken on trial by Sheffield United a few months later and was awarded a one-year deal but didn't make a first team appearance for the Blades before being released this summer.

He follows midfielders Mike Jones and Tom Beadling, defenders Matt Platt and James Jones and wide attacker Luke James in signing ahead of Barrow's first season in the English Football League for 48 years.
