Barrow have announced the loan signing of Tyler Smith from Sheffield United.
Smith joins to gain first team experience after impressing at various levels of the Sheffield United development system, with several first team appearances to his name as well. His fine performances were rewarded with a two-year pro deal at the Blades last year
He has also been recognised by the League Football Education (LFE), which acknowledges the football and academic progress of Under-18 players on apprenticeships at current or former English Football League (EFL) clubs – and is also designed to assess other factors including involvement in community or charity based initiatives.
The young forward goes straight into the squad for Saturdays home opener against Havant & Waterlooville and will wear the number 19 shirt for the Bluebirds.
