MAX Anderson-Moore marked his Barrow Raiders senior debut in style weighing in with a brace of tries.

But while the youngster was delighted to open his account for his boyhood club, he admitted he had hoped for a better result.

Raiders exited the AB Sundecks 1895 Cup at the quarter-final stage as they went down 30-12 against Wakefield Trinity.

Speaking to Barrow Raiders official Facebook page, Anderson-Moore said: “Yeah I’m very, very pleased (with his two tries).

“Obviously I’m not happy with the result, but I’m over the moon to have scored two tries for a club that I have supported since I was eight or nine years old.

“It’s a great experience. Cresta (head coach Paul Crarey) has backed me this week, and I can only thank him for giving me the opportunity.

“The first try was an unreal ball by Brad (Walker), I don’t even think he looked when he threw it, and the second one I just backed up some good work by Max (Clarke) and Shane (Toal).

“So yeah I’ll take the glory, but you know the hard work was done by the other players.”

Anderson-Moore certainly overawed by the occasion as he lined up against Trinity, a club which was playing in the Super League just last season.

And he is aiming just to keep progressing when the opportunity presents itself.

He added: “I was buzzing (to play). Obviously I’ve got a bit of experience playing at Workington last year in League One, but the Championship is so much faster.

“You’ve got to be on it all of the time and I’m just buzzing to be involved and I will just learn with every game.”
