Barrow sign Pacy Striker
Barrow have signed 20 year old pacy former Wrexham striker, Obi Anuoro on a one year contract.
Anuoro was released by the Conference runners-up in May having featured just 3 times last season, and having spent the latter part of last season on loan at Vauxhall Motors.
Nigerian-born but a British Citizen, Anoruo has scored goals prolifically at a lower level and now aims to show Barrow fans that he can repeat those feats in The Conference.
Anoruo had a spectacular start to his Wrexham career, becoming the fifth youngest scorer in the club's history when he got a late equaliser against (ironically) Barrow as a seventeen-year-old in April 2009. He followed that up with another goal two days later against Mansfield, becoming the youngest player to score a penalty for Wrexham, but failed to build on that by claiming a place in the first team.
He spent much of the next season on loan at Newtown, and made a good impression for the League of Wales side, However, he make an even greater impact during his next temporary move, in the 2010-11 season. Playing in the Conference North for Vauxhall Motors, he enjoyed a fine campaign, scoring sixteen goals and ending up near the head of the division's top scorers' table.
He returned at the end of the season to appear as a substitute in both legs of the play-off semi-finals in 2011.
He has now recovered from a knee operation carried out in May, passing a medical by Barrow Physio, Sean Rileyand made his Barrow debut in the Workington Chas Kendall (Coral) Trophy game.
