Sheer grit and determination to win a football game.

What a team. Every one of them.

Barrow played on empty last 10 minutes (not surprising after the travelling and 2 tough opponent's) but the effort shown to win got the applause at the end that they deserved not a classic but fair play to Sutton who played their part in an open game hope Taylor and Granite are ok because Taylor didn't look as though he knew what was going on and at first I thought Granite was in real trouble anyway onward we go and if people questioned our teams commitment and desire well that was more than answered today brilliant!

As I said on a previous post earlier this week perhaps the cup defeat was a blessing in disguise.
Didn't think so at the time but your right now...
We didn't play as well today but 100% commitment from all the lads...
Making the final sub then losing Taylor was a huge blow...then Granite getting injured minutes later..
Definately backs to the wall stuff.
Well done Granite for carrying on....Barrow fighting spirit to see us home...
Hope you 2 lads recover quickly.
Decent support today...Hopefully they will all be back in a couple of weeks..
A mention for Sutton.... Came and played football. You wont be in the bottom 4 for long. Played some decent stuff and the lad on the wing was a handful 2nd half..
Great fighting spirit....well done everyone

Evatt summed it up nicely on the radio “his best win as a manager so far”

All this flair and great football and being compared to 1970's Brazil is great, but sounded like today was about grit and just getting over the line. Personified by Granite. Good lad but hope his injury isn't too serious
What did the TV commentator say a few years ago about Barrow character - something about builders' tea. Can anyone remember the actual quote?
Jonty knows, Shipbuilders Tea, he posted a video clip about it if I remember correctly .
I don't belieeeeeeeve it!

Well done Barrow - ground out a terrific performance and result against all odds - a win to be proud of ( as they all are , of course ) :scarf:
First match : Barrow v Northampton Town : Sat. 24th Sept. 1960 ... won 1-0... ( which was nice )

Wow that is what a team playing for the title have to do!

Fair play to Sutton they aren't a relegation team by a long stretch.

Referee to be fair got everything correct (well reffed).

We at the same time were nowhere near at our best but managed to get a fantastic win.

Well done to manager and team and all to do with Barrow Afc.

Josh Granite not only by name, what a hero well done sir

What a difference two years makes.
2017 -Team of Mercenaries that took the American dollar and couldn’t be bothered. No fight, no desire, poor team of so called footballers, no care for the shirt.
2019 - Where do I start? Proper team, everyone in it together including the fans, very good football, fight and spirit like those we respected before the game, never say die attitude.
We all pay our fee to get in and all we ask is that they try and by Christ you can’t complain about this team not caring or trying

Due to an event in Carlisle that Radio Cumbria we’re hosting they had to rush through the post match interviews after today’s games.
Here is the full interview I did with Ian Evatt after today’s win

Nice interview, nice little gesture by Margaret and a nice three points earned the hard way!
Rest up time for a few of the walking wounded and do they need a rest. Gives the management time to take stock find out how long those that are broken will need to mend also.
Immensely proud supporter tonight, if any were in any doubt about commitment and desire that was was well and truly dispelled today.
