We’re delighted to announce the signing of prolific striker Dom Telford from Crawley Town on a 2-year deal for an undisclosed fee.
Telford had a very successful spell in West Sussex last season where he managed to bag 15 goals, whilst also notching four assists for his teammates.
It was arguably his previous season which was his most impressive to date though as he bagged 25 goals for Newport County in League Two, which landed him the golden boot that season and a place in the PFA team of the season.
The 26-year-old came through the ranks at Blackpool where he played 14 times for the Tangerines in the Championship during the 2014-2015 season. A 17-year-old Telford even managed to score a goal in only his second substitute appearance.
After Blackpool a spell at Stoke City followed which included a loan spell at Bristol Rovers before a permanent move to Bury AFC, followed by a move to Plymouth Argyle a year later when he linked up with Bluebirds Skipper Niall Canavan.
It was his next move to Newport though where Telford really made a name for himself though as the top striker in League Two that season, as he claimed the Golden Boot in a very successful season.
Speaking about the move to Barrow Telford said: “I’m delighted to be here, I met the manager and all the staff and players this morning and got all the paperwork out the way and joined in training and feel at home already.
“I really like the manager’s philosophy and everyone has just been so welcoming so I’m just looking forward to getting in front of the fans tomorrow and getting straight in.”
