Barrow have parted company with head coach Darren Holt, 48 hours after they avoided relegation from the Kingstone Press Championship.

The Cumbrians beat Keighley 24-14 in their last match of the season at Craven Park on Sunday to ensure survival, but that was only their eighth win in 26 matches.

In a statement, the club said Holt was asked to stand down with immediate effect.

“Both parties reached an amicable agreement,” the statement added.

“Darren’s remaining contract term will be honoured by the club and Darren has requested that a substantial part of his remaining contract will be paid into the floodlight appeal.

“The board of directors would like to thank Darren for his years of dedication to Barrow Raiders both as a player and coach. Everyone on the board wishes Darren all the best in the future.”
