Barrow Raiders head coach Darren Holt and his assistant Phil Atkinson have signed new two-year deals.

Former Raiders player Holt, 35, was appointed Raiders' head coach in November, following the resignation of Dave Clark.

Holt soon enlisted the help of Atkinson, and they have guided the club to currently sit just two points off top spot in Championship One.

A club statement said the directors were "delighted with both signings."

It added: "It is seen as a positive move creating stability and allowing Darren and Phil to continue building on their success to date."
