Barrow have announced that winger Shane Toal has signed a new three-year deal with the club.
Toal, 25, is a product of Ulverston ARLFC, and joined Raiders in 2015. He is a Scottish international, earning three caps for the Bravehearts and was named in their squad for the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.
He said: “I am very happy to have signed a new three-year extension which will take me to 10 years with Barrow. I have been loving my rugby this year after our season was cancelled last year.
“Everyone at the club is working really hard and it shows with the crowds that are coming to watch and the events that they’re hosting at the ground. I think the club is on the up and I’m excited to be involved for the next few years.”
Barrow currently sit at the top of the Betfred League 1 table, with a record of eight wins, one draw and one loss. Paul Crarey’s side face Coventry Bears this Sunday at the Matt Johnson Prestige Stadium, as the club continues to grow the sport offering free entry for all fans before 1:00pm.
Earlier in May, the club distributed more than 17,000 free season tickets to every child in south Cumbria.
The club also recently confirmed the signing of former St Helens, Warrington and Toronto centre Gary Wheeler earlier last month, alongside veteran centre or back-rower Liam Harrison, who made more than 300 appearances for his hometown club between 2005 and 2016. He has now come out of retirement to play alongside brother Ben.
Two-time Olympian Caroline Alexander recently joined the club’s community foundation team, having represented Britain at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta and the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. She has gone on to represent Britain across a range of competitions and events, including the UCI Women’s Road World Cup, while also representing Scotland in the first mountain-bike event in the Commonwealth Games in 2002.
