News of a new signing for the Bluebirds!
We are delighted to welcome striker Olly Dyson to the club, on a work experience deal from Premier League side Huddersfield Town.
Dyson already has experience of men’s football. Five goals in just five games for Liversedge earned him a move up the divisions to Evo-Stik League Premier Division Shaw Lane last season, where he excelled in tier seven.
Olly, 19, is also equally adept at playing on the wing, and is eligible for Saturday’s Vanarama National League game at Solihull Moors.
Bluebirds boss Ian Evatt shared his delight at the signing with The Mail:
“We’re pleased to get him, he’s a young player with a lot of ability and potential.
He comes highly recommended from a lot of people that I trust in the game and what we’ve seen this week in training has been very good.
After Tyler leaving, we obviously needed to bolster numbers in that department and he became available and he’ll be with us for the foreseeable future.
He’s played men’s football before – he played for Shaw Lane last season – and he’s quick, powerful, direct and with good technical ability as well, so he’s going to be a big player for us in the months to come.
We’re glad to have him, like I said, and we’ll make sure that we take good care of him.”
Speaking to Huddersfield Town’s website, their Academy Manager Leigh Bromby commented:
“We’re all really excited to watch Olly in what is an exciting opportunity for his development as a player.
“This move shows the benefits of Olly being on a longer scholarship, as they give our young players the flexibility to move outside the transfer window and gain vital experience of men’s football.
“Olly showed last season that he could cope with the rigours of the physical test and excel at both Liversedge and Shaw Lane and he’s earned this opportunity to play at a fantastic level with Barrow. I’m looking forward to seeing him in action with them over the next few weeks.”
He will wear the number 19 shirt for the Bluebirds.
