Barrow Raiders can confirm the signing of experienced forward Danny Langtree.

Langtree, 30, began his career in the St Helens academy system before going on to enjoy more than ten seasons with Oldham and was a pivotal figure in their Betfred League 1 promotion campaign scoring 18 tries in 18 appearances. He is also the club’s all-time record forward try scorer.

He also had a brief spell with Hull FC in Super League in 2019.

The powerful forward now links up with Paul Crarey and his squad ahead of the 2022 Betfred Championship season, joining the likes of Tee Ritson, Carl Forster and newest addition Josh Wood.

“I’m very excited,” said Langtree.

“As soon as I spoke to Andy Gaffney (player director) he told me about his plans and the team he’s getting ready for 2022. I’m looking forward to being a part of what should be good times ahead.

“As well as speaking to Andy and liking everything he was saying about the club and what the plans are, I spoke to a few of the lads like Carl Forster and Jamie Dallimore and they had nothing but good things to say about the club, so they played a big part in my decision as well.

“I’ve been told nothing but good things about the club, coaches and everyone at the club, so I’m looking forward to getting started.

“I just want to play as much rugby as I can and hopefully help Barrow finish as high as we can in the league next season.”

On his departure from Oldham, Langtree added: “I was at Oldham for a long time and I loved my time there. I just want to wish the club, the lads and the fans all the best and hopefully they’ll be back in the Championship soon.”

On the latest addition, head coach Crarey said: “When Danny became available we jumped at the chance to sign him.

“He can play back-row or middle and is very strong in both attack and defence and is very experienced in the Championship.

“He has a great work ethic and attitude and will be a great addition to the squad.”
