Barrow goalkeeper Joel Dixon has signed a new contract with the club.
The shot-stopper, 25, has signed a one-year deal with the option for a further year. The Middlesbrough-born keeper is the club’s longest-serving player, having joined from Sunderland in June 2015.
Despite facing long spells on the sidelines due to various injuries, Dixon has fought back each time and has become the first name on the team sheet since coming into the side in early-November. He has kept an impressive 12 clean sheets in 25 games since his return, including a run of five consecutive clean sheets at the end of last year.
He was delighted to sign on the dotted line for at least another year: “I couldn’t be happier to be staying for another year. Obviously I’ve been here for quite a while now and it hasn’t always been easy, but I’m just enjoying being back on the pitch every week.
“Everyone at the club, from the chairman to the fans, have been fantastic with me, and I can’t wait to see what next season brings. The gaffer has made it clear where he wants us to go as a team and as a club and I’m glad to have signed a new deal to be a part of it all.”
