Hi Barrow fans
I am a Big Leigh fan and would like to say you have got the better deal imo
Briscoe is a 100%'er who will tackle all day and has plenty experience of first team over the last 3 years and is still only 21, he will go well for you
Bullock will be first team shoe in for us next season, and for me this as well - he is much better than Haggerty again imo, having seen Haggerty come through our academy to first team I believe he is too small to go further and will not get into the 17
Young Rowe is quality but needs game time, he was always slightly built but has bulked up, and again I would have preferred him at Leigh before Haggerty
So in summary I cant believe we have agreed to this and hope Bullock is recalled soon
Financially we have been through the mill recently, but not at the level you guys have. We almost went pop last year when our new owner paid the players, and lead a takeover whilst fighting off a winding up order from HMRC that came out of the cupboard ( ie it got paid)
The old board were like a scene from 'Waiting for God', the new one is vibrant, young, have a great skill set and have put money in over 3 years, and not as 'loans'. The sponsorship is the best/highest we have ever had and season tickets are massively up also.
We are located in the middle of some great SL clubs and are not far away from most players that become available, our facilities at LSV are also better than most SL clubs - this will always be the challenge facing the Cumbrian clubs
I hope you make the 9 this year, I genuinely like Barrows fans and hope the transaction will help you and Anthony. I also hope I am wrong about Kurt
