The Sports are excited to announce that Brad Barry will stay at Priory Lane for the 2023/24 campaign.

Barry, 28, has signed a new two-year deal with Borough and becomes the first of last season’s squad to commit to the club as it moves into full-time football.

He has also been named club captain for the 2023/24 campaign.

The defender will be able to call upon his previous experience in the Football League to help make the transition back into a full-time set up, and Mark Beard will look to the former Brighton & Hove Albion youngster to be a leader at the back.

After joining from Stevenage last summer, Barry made 36 appearances across all competitions for the Sports and will look to add to that tally this campaign.

Having left Brighton as a youngster in 2015, Barry went on to join Swindon Town for two years, before a spell with Chesterfield.

He then joined Barrow in 2019, where he was part of the side which won the National League title in 2019/20 before joining fellow League Two side Stevenage in 2021.
