Luke Cresswell signs for the Raiders
Barrow Raiders have signed full-back Luke Cresswell. Full-Back Luke has come from Barrow Island, but has also played recently for Cumbria Open Age and Barla U23’s. Luke played a game for the Raiders last year, before he went on his tour with Barla, and was determined to come back to the club, after he had finished his World Tour. Luke is sponsored by Furness Heating Components.
I’ve been training with the team once a week all year and just decided to sign now. I know i’m going to have to be patient and wait to get my chance, just gonna see how it goes really.
Head Coach Paul Crarey said:
We Signed Luke with a view, he’s a great signing for the club and for the future of the club, along with Danny Morrow, Matty Holmes and Matty While who are the future of the club, local based kids and that’s what our aim is, to build a local based team.
Luke has a fantastic attitude and fantastic skills, he can defend and attack excellently. Give him a chance, but I believe he will be a fantastic signing for the club, only time will tell though. The easy part for him is signing on, the hardest part now, starts with the hard work. He will face big challenges but he will have to keep his head down and work through them. He was an automatic selection at his old club and now he is sat behind Ryan (Fieldhouse) but Ryan has been a great mentor to him and has looked after him a bit. He’s going to be a great signing for the club…
