Midfielder Paul Smith has signed a one-year deal with Barrow, after impressing during a short-term spell towards the end of the 2010-11 season.
The 19-year-old made eight appearances for the Bluebirds, scoring twice, having joined the club from Liverpool amateur side Aigburth Peoples Hall.
"Paul's a good lad and we're looking forward to him coming in," joint-boss Dave Bayliss told BBC Radio Cumbria.
"He gives us more options in midfield and he's the right age."
Bayliss added: "He's the right type of lad that we're looking for, he's eager to go on and get himself a good career in football."
