Barrow AFC have announced that 27-year-old Macclesfield Town captain Paul Turnbull has joined the club.

Turnbull rejected a new deal at Moss Ross to join Barrow on a free transfer.

Barrow boss Paul Cox described `Bully` as: “one of the best quality ball-playing midfielders at the level. Something we have been lacking”.

Turnbull has signed a twelve-month deal which takes effect after his Macclesfield contract expires on June 30th.

The contract also contains a one-year option which would be automatically exercised if a specified number of starts are made.

The Silkmen captain began his career after progressing through Stockport County’s Centre of Excellence set-up in 2005.

Turnbull enjoyed great success in the Football League at Stockport, including a play-off final visit at Wembley Stadium.

He then spent two years at Northampton Town from 2011 before joining Macclesfield in the summer of 2013 and was handed the captain’s armband from the 2014/15 season playing a key part in the run to the edge of the play-offs.
