Re: Lewis Hardcastle signs on

Exactly the right type of player to get on a permanent deal. Young, quick, energetic, enthusiastic and skilful. A really terrific signing.

Re: Ian Evatt

If a team does well then any Manager will attract attention from other clubs, same if players perform well. We all know this and understand this. Yes managers / players come and go. The point that annoys the hell out of me is that is as Barrow fans, many have this mindset which suggests that we are...

Re: Barrow v Harrogate Town

After watching the highlights, i completely agree. Definite indicision by Taylor for the first goal but Dixon should have hit the ball away from the players coming towards him. Second goal was a combination of bad marking and Dixon failing to get to the corner. A great shame as Dixon has been playin...

Re: Ian Evatt

It’s been a long time.since l posted on this forum, but if this rumour over IE signing a long term contract is true it’s the best news l’ve heard in a long time. Some of the football played in the first half on Saturday was the best seen at Holker Street in years. Well done everybody concerned. As ...

Re: Barrow v Harrogate Town

Sounds like they played very well until giving away a farcical goal just after half-time with an equalising goal almost as bad.

Re: Barrow v Harrogate Town

Both goals from stupid mistakes! Too much to hope for a comfortable win when we have a decent crowd. I suppose. Need a granstand finish now.

Re: Dan Jones

I think he's every bit as good if not better as a left-sided central defender. He's got a terrific long crossfield pass and has more time as a central defender.

Re: If Evatt Goes.

Unfortunately, the 2011 census showed that Barrow had the greatest population decline of any town in the country and it has lost another 2,000 since then which doesn't help. That’s 7 years ago and hotels and rooms are opening all over town. Let’s be positive about our town! :) The census was 7 year...

Re: Wrexham v BARROW match thread

Played fantastically. Dan Jones was my MOTM, scored and seemed to win every header from the crosses put into the box. He really has found another level under Evatt's guidance. We have 2 top class players at this level in Jones and Taylor backed up by a good few decent young players and some very pr...
