Quigley announces Bluebirds departure.
Barrow’s star striker, Scott Quigley, has announced that he will be leaving the club in the near future.
Quigley, who has netted 35 times in 76 appearances for the Holker Street club, has cited family reasons for his decision to leave the club he helped reclaim a place in the Football League two seasons ago.
In a tweet posted on his personal Twitter account, Quigley wrote: ‘Thank you Barrow AFC for an unforgettable last 2 years. I’ve loved every minute of playing for you and grateful for being allowed to represent you bluebirds which I’m proud of what we achieved together in 2 years.
‘There will be questions on why l’ve left but the facts are it’s family based decision and a situation which we never could of predicted losing family member and needing to be closer to home. So please don’t listen to any lies,’ he continued.
‘Thanks to the board for understanding my situation and supporting my decision. Top club and even better people.’
The Shrewsbury-born front man was signed by ex-manager Ian Evatt from Blackpool in the summer of 2019, and went on to be top scorer, in the curtailed season that eventually saw the Bluebirds end their 48-year wait to return to the Football League, notching 20 times.
Quigley also finished top scorer last season, with his tally of 15 going a long way in helping Barrow retain their place in League Two.
Whilst Quigley didn’t name the club he will be joining, the striker has been heavily linked to his hometown team Shrewsbury Town and his former club Wrexham.
