The Barron is back for another season

Jake Barron who joined us from Scunthorpe in our championship winning season is back for his fourth season at the club. Having missed the first season of National One with a serious Achilles injury, he came back last year and picked up 19 caps in a shortened season. Jake Says:

Staying was an easy choice for me. This is a great bunch of lads, loyal supporters, we have great facilities & coaches who push us hard to improve every week. I don’t believe I played my best rugby at the start of last season due to my long term injury but I want to get stuck back into it now & being playing at heywood road.

Known for his no-nonsense playing style as well as questionable hair, he’s become a firm favourite of the crowd at Heywood Road and we’re delighted to have him returning at full fitness for our third season in National One.
