FC Halifax Town were delighted to announce that Ross Barrows has signed a new deal after the expiry of his previous contract. Ross said that signing a new deal was “Really pleasing” going on to say “Of course last season was a great year for not only the club but personally myself, I feel like I have learnt a lot and developed a lot and I am looking forward to next season to push on even more.”
The youngster is relishing the chance to play in the National League after The Shaymen’s playoff final win at the end of last season. Saying “I think it will be a big challenge, more physical, quicker and a better quality of football as well. A couple of the lads have been in this league before but a few of us haven’t and I think that the ones who haven’t are very excited for the challenge and I am looking forward to testing myself against better players.”
Barrows made his debut in the FA Cup 2nd round defeat against Eastleigh last season and has impressed in his appearances for the youth teams winning all-round student of the year for the under 19 side in 2015.

Barrows aims to become a first team regular season saying that “Hopefully I can have a good pre-season and impress the manager and we will see where it goes from there.”
