Barrow boss Paul Cox has swooped to bring in Shrewsbury Town central defender Dom Smith on a youth loan deal until January.

Shrewsbury have a recall clause after the first 28 days.

Smith, 20, has struggled for a place in the League 1 side’s match day squad this season but made 20-odd appearances last term.

He also had a lengthy loan spell at Tamworth earlier in his career with his home town club.

The forms were signed in time for Smith to join Barrow on their journey south to Dover.

He adds options at the back with Danny Livesey, who has travelled, missing the last two games and Shaun Beeley ruled out with a groin injury.
