A Super League star has supported Barrow Raiders’ bid for promotion to the Championship.

Brad Singleton, who plays for Wigan Warriors, believes the Raiders should take the soon-to-be vacant spot in the Championship.

Singleton, who is from Barrow, revealed his backing on a Twitter post on Thursday when he answered a question posed by a rugby league account.

The League One club could discover whether their Championship bid was successful as soon as next week.

Barrow face competition from other clubs including Newcastle Thunder and Rochdale Hornets.
