Barrow AFC are delighted to welcome Rory Holden and Rhys Norrington-Davies, two U21 internationals, to the club!

Both players have joined on initial one month loans, with centre forward Holden joining from Bristol City and left back Norrington-Davies joining from Sheffield United.

Holden, 21, is an exciting prospect who City have high hopes for after joining The Robins from Derry City last summer.

A Northern Ireland U21 international, he joins the Bluebirds having helped his side to a hugely impressive 2-1 victory over Spain in Albacete on Tuesday. He also played against Luxembourg a few days earlier, scoring the winning goal. You can see that goal HERE.

Rhys is a current Wales U21 international and played in their 2-0 defeat to Portugal U21 in Bangor on Monday.

He is an attacking left sided full back and is noted for being a consistent and reliable performer with a natural instinct to attack from defence. He joined Sheffield United permanently in the summer of 2017 after impressing on trial following his departure from Swansea City.

Both Rory and Rhys have trained with the squad in the last few days and are eligible for tomorrow’s trip to Meadow Park as we face Borehamwood in the Manarama National League.
