Chris Barratt is the latest edition to sign on the dotted line for Carl Forster's North Wales Crusaders in 2024.
The former Coventey Bears player joined North Wales Crusaders in 2020 (although that season was curtailed because of the pandemic) and made a total 65 appearances.

The 30 year old prop was ever consistent last season by making 23 league and cup appearances and crossing the white wash 6 times.
Barratt said " I'm really happy to stay, i feel like I’ve really settled in at the club and with the fans.
Im excited and looking forward to pushing on and trying to go one step further next season"
Forster himself has been busy himself assembling a competitive squad for next year and said “This is a huge retention for the club.
External interest is always high in Baz and he’s chosen to stay loyal with us.
He’s a huge part of the group on and off the field. He leads from the front and sets the standard in the middle of the field”.
