Courtney Duffus, the 27-year-old forward, has signed a one-year contract with Barrow. The deal includes an option for the club to extend the contract for an additional year.

The striker started his career in Cheltenham's Robins academy, moved to Everton in 2012, and later played for Oldham, Yeovil, Bromley, and Morecambe.

In 2018, Duffus went on loan to Waterford where he scored ten goals in 24 games for the Blues. 

In a statement, Bluebirds manager Pete Wild said about Duffus, "At his best, he is a very athletic and physical centre forward who can score goals. I believe he has all the traits and attributes to really rejuvenate his career with us."

Duffus expressed his excitement about joining the Bluebirds, "I’m really happy to be here and I can’t wait to get started... I will contribute to the team with hard work and goals."

While eligible to represent England, the Republic of Ireland, and Jamaica in international competitions, Duffus has featured for the Republic of Ireland and scored his first goal for their under-21 team in a Euro qualifier match against Slovenia.
