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.
