Ryan Johnson has been backed to become one of Barrow Raider's all time greats by the club's Rugby Director.

Johnston signed a new one year deal at Craven Park on Friday, and Andy Gaffney has praised the half-back, backing him to have a great future.

He said: "He played in the friendlies before this season and did very well, and carried that into the league before it was stopped. He is a fitness fanatic and has a great attitude and and it shows that there is a root throughout the professional game through the amateur clubs. He has a great future at the club for many years to come and could be one of the all time greats."
