Former Latics loanee Andy Dallas has joined Barrow on a season-long loan from Barnsley.

The striker made 14 appearances for Oldham after arriving on loan in January, having been recalled by his parent club from a longer-term agreement at Kilmarnock.

Dallas was snapped up by Barnsley having scored 21 goals in all competitions in the 2022/23 season, including the opening goal in Chesterfield's National League play-off final with Notts County, which the Spireites went on to lose on penalties.

The 24-year-old failed to find the back of the net during his Boundary Park spell, though, and was hampered by injury.

He is looking forward to putting a difficult season behind him with Barrow.

"From the first conversation, I knew that Barrow AFC was where I wanted to come and enjoy my football for the 2024/25 season," he said.

“I'm just delighted to get my head down and push myself and the club forward, I wanted to come in for the first day of pre-season and I'm glad to have it done the move so early.”

Dallas added: “I'm a forward who likes to play on the shoulder and get in behind. I work hard for the team and I'm obviously hoping to score a lot of goals.”

Barrow head coach Stephen Clemence said: "We're delighted that Andy has decided to join us, there was a lot of competition for his signature.

“He wants to improve and develop as a player. He has the ability to stretch defences, and technically he can finish off both feet so I'm really looking forward to working with him."
