Barrow Raiders are delighted to announce the re-signing of Luke Cresswell to a new three-year deal.

The full-back becomes the second player this week to extend his stay with the club, following Shane Toal’s new deal.

Cresswell came through with Barrow Island before signing with the Raiders and making his debut in 2016 against Toulouse.

“I am delighted to have signed a three-year extension with Barrow,” he said.

“I’m looking forward to the challenges and successes the club will face and excited to be a part of it.

“I hope to help the club gain promotion and cement ourselves as a Championship team. With the hard work, support and ambition everyone at the club has been providing, I believe this is more than achievable.”

On the two re-signings, chairman, Steve Neale added: “This continues our strategy of securing our best local players on longer term deals. It is a risk with reduced funding likely from the RFL but, whilst they are settled in the area, we also wanted to reward them for their abilities.”

Cresswell is sponsored by Hazel Robinson.
