Its OH Kay as Josh returns to Bluebirds

After initially being released last month by Barrow AFC, Josh Kay today put pen to paper on a new deal that keeps him at the club for a further two years.

The arrival of Mark Cooper at the club certainly seems to have been the deciding factor in Kay’s quick reversal.

Speaking on the Bluebirds official website Josh says:

“I had a few different options which I was looking at but, at the end of it all and after I had spoken to my family and my agent, Barrow was the best one for me, especially the way the Manager is looking to play.”

“I have spoken to him and he has told me where he sees me fitting into the side and it feels like finally, after three seasons here, I am going to get a chance to play the position I feel I am best at”.

“One of the main things that swayed me was how much the Manager wanted me, that just makes you feel good from the off and I feel like I owe him now and I want to do my best for him.”

“I am buzzing, I honestly just can’t wait.”

“I want to give the Barrow fans the best version of myself because I feel like I did that for the first half of last season but not the second and that’s played on my mind a lot.

“I owe it to myself because I have worked so hard to get into the position I am in now but I have realised that I need to be the best I can be every single day.”

Talking about the Barrow fans he goes on to say:

“I get giddy thinking about playing in front of a full stadium again,”

“I can’t wait to see all the fans there and hopefully if everything goes smoothly with the way we’re playing then the place will be buzzing – it’s going to be so good!”

Kay will now almost certainly join the 100 club of Barrow appearances having made 95 so far scoring 13 goals in the process.
