Former Super League Grand Finalist finds new club

Barrow Raiders have signed Gary Wheeler and Liam Harrison for the remainder of the 2021 League 1 season.

Wheeler, 31, began his career at St Helens, where he made his first-team debut in 2008 in the Challenge Cup.

He has also previously featured for Warrington and Toronto, while earning one cap for England Knights.

He joins up with the Raiders until the end of the season alongside veteran centre or back-rower Liam Harrison.

Harrison, 37, made more than 300 appearances for his hometown club between 2005 and 2016 and has now come out of retirement to play alongside brother Ben, and help the Raiders through an injury crisis.

Raiders chairman Steve Neale said: “I’m absolutely delighted with the signings. It’s another statement of intent around the quality of personnel we are recruiting and when we get our injured stars back there will now be an embarrassment of riches and real selection headaches.

“Barrow Raiders are determined to gain promotion to compliment all the great work that has been going on off the field.”
