BARROW Raiders have announced the signing of an exciting prospect who can play in a variety of positions.

Harry Swarbrick has captained the academy side at Warrington Wolves in his younger years before moving to Salford where he saw first team action.

The 24-year-old suffered an injury whilst at the Red Devils which halted his progress, which was followed by a short stint of Rugby Union, but he soon decided the other code was not for him.

Raiders’ director of rugby Andy Gaffney was glad to see him arrive at the club and later made the decision to sign him.

“He came up to us and has been training and has never missed a session,” he said.

“He was impressive in our game against Oldham where he played at hooker, but he can play centre, wing, and loose forward. That versatility is an asset to have in a small squad of players like ours.

“He has great pace and strength as well as the mindset to stick to the game plan.

“We have been impressed with him in training which is just one of the reasons we decided to sign him.

“We are looking forward to seeing him in action for the team this season and I am excited to see what impact he can make for us.”
