Barrow have confirmed that experienced forward Lee Doran and local amateur Adam Nicholson are training with the club.
The 29-year-old was surprisingly released by the Vikings at the end of last season, despite collecting the club’s supporters player of the year and being named in the Co-operative Championship dream team.
Barrow chairman Des Johnston said: “Lee is out of contract at the present time and has come along to train and put himself in the shop window.
“He has a proven track record. Schoey will decide whether he would be a useful addition to the squad but I’ll decide whether or not we can do the maths on a deal which makes him affordable.”
Raiders head coach Garry Schofield is also taking a closer look at Nicholson, a centre who currently plays for Walney Central.
“I have heard a lot of good things about Adam and I know he is very highly rated in the amateur game,” he said.
“Unless we give local players like him a chance to show what they have to offer then we will never know what talent there is in the area. I’ll be taking a long hard look at him and make no mistake about it, if he deserves a chance he’ll get one.”
The duo trained with the Raiders squad tonight and Doran is likely to feature in the pre-season friendly against Wigan this weekend.
