Adding a goalscorer is on the list of priorities for Barrow AFC manager Ian Evatt, who is working hard on putting together a squad that can lift them higher than mid-table next season.

Although finishing 11th in the National League represented a significant improvement on avoiding relegation by the skin of their teeth the previous year, Evatt was disappointed the Bluebirds were unable to mount a play-off push.

Evatt is interested in turning Dior Angus’ loan from Port Vale into a permanent deal, but with the departure of strikers Jacob Blyth and Nathan Waterston in the last week, he still needs to bring in extra firepower.
