Tranmere Rovers snap up George Barker

10 October 2014

Tranmere Rovers have increased their attacking options with the acquisition of George Barker on a one-month loan from Swindon Town.

Rovers have scored 11 goals in 11 Sky Bet League 2 games this season and only Hartlepool United and Cheltenham Town have managed fewer.

With joint top-scorer Cole Stockton set for a spell on the sidelines due to a pelvic injury, boss Rob Edwards has brought in 23-year-old Barker to offer a threat up front.

"I'm pleased to be able to bring George to the club," Edwards said on his club's official website.

"With Cole Stockton injured our options in attack have been reduced. George will give us pace up front and will cause opposition defenders problems."

Barker has made seven appearances for his parent club this season, but all of them have come off the bench.
