Barrow Raiders are delighted to announce that they have signed former St.Helens junior Joe Sharratt

Joe’s promising career was put on hold when he was a victim of a vicious attack by nightclub bouncers that left him with a bleed on the brain. At the time of the attack he had represented Lancashire Schoolboys against Australian Schoolboys with distinction and was hoping to represent England the following weekend.

Joe returned to light training with Saints Under 19’s squad in Spring 2019 under close medical scrutiny. In March this year Joe joined the Raiders training environment with a view to getting himself back playing and has shown enough to impress the coaching staff and earn a one year deal.

Joe plays in the centre position and talking to the Saints staff they all believe he has a bright future and will be a massive asset for Barrow.

Welcome to Barrow Raiders Joe.
