Rooney is a Bluebird!

We are delighted to announce John Rooney as our latest signing ahead of the 2018/19 season.

John joins us from last years rivals Guiseley AFC on a free transfer.

Rooney, 27, is a midfielder who spent his youth career at Everton and then Macclesfield before going on to make over 40 first team appearances for the Silkmen.

In 2011 he moved across the Atlantic to play for both New York Red Bulls and Orlando City FC, before a move back to the UK and a spell at Barnsley.

He left Oakwell for Bury before a loan to Chester which became a permanent move in 2014. 

John played over 100 times for Chester scoring 25 times. After two years at the Deva Wrexham came calling and his move across the border saw him score 11 goals in 33 appearances.

He then moved to Guiseley on loan before the move was made permanent last year.

He joins us on a one year deal. 

Welcome to Barrow John!
