Michael Jolley has swooped to make his third signing of the January transfer window with the arrival of experienced defender Tom Davies on loan from Bristol Rovers.
The 28-year-old centre-back has agreed a loan deal which will see him stay at The Progression Solicitors Stadium until the end of May.
Davies is yet to feature for Rovers this season following knee surgery last year, but he has worked hard to return to fitness and has been back in First Team training as he eyes a return to action.
Rovers boss Paul Tisdale is now keen for the no-nonsense defender to get some game time under his belt and has agreed to allow him to make a temporary move to Barrow.
A whole-hearted performer and a leader on and off the pitch, Davies spent time as a youngster on the books at Manchester United and Blackburn Rovers before stepping into non-league football whilst completing a degree in Sports Management.
A spell at the heart of FC United of Manchester’s defence as they finished second in the Northern Premier League earned him a move to Fleetwood Town in 2014, before he made a switch to Accrington Stanley a year later.
Davies then moved on to the South Coast to join Portsmouth before Coventry City paid an undisclosed fee to take him to The Midlands in 2017 but he turned down an extended deal to join Bristol Rovers in 2019.
Described by many as a player not likely to shirk a challenge, Davies will now link-up with The Bluebirds as they look to drive their way clear of danger in the second half of the League Two season.
