Max Johnson

Barrow have signed former Newcastle United, Inverness and Blyth Spartans goalkeeper Max Johnson as replacement for the Australia-bound Shaun Pearson.

The 21-year-old is a coach with Manchester City's youth development team and will serve as back-up to regular first-choice Danny Hurst.

Johnson failed to make an appearance for the Magpies or Inverness, but played twice for Spartans.

He is in the Bluebirds squad for Saturday's visit of Tamworth.
