Worst player ever to play for Barrow ...

Who's the worst player you've ever seen play for us ?

Mo Fofana must be up there

There was a local lad in the 90s, I think he was called Brown ?

In latter seasons it has to be Ashley Grimes.Useless and lazy. Tfd to Southport and came on as a sub for them, playing us at Haig Ave and was then subbed himself. :lol:

Biggest disappointments in recent years, therefore probably the worst signings were: Marc Goodfellow, Sean McConnville, and Ashley Grimes. Nicholas was useless though.
Fofana seemed okay, not dreadful.

The one that stands out for me is Christian Smith.

I remember a right back getting subbed after about 15-20 minutes at Lancaster back in 2005 for being awful. Think he was called Paul Howarth. They'd gone 2 or 3 up early on, and he was viewed as the one to blame, so came off.

Hard to say just one person who is the worst over a spell, because there have been a lot not fit to wear the shirt, but on individual performances, that one stands out.
He who pays the piper calls the tune.

John Armfield ? Keeper from the early 90's. Remember him getting dogs abuse every week.

Andy Capp? Is that a joke? :D

Not sure about our worst ever player but our demise into Non-League football in the early 70s certainly attracted some cart horses to Holker Street...

Worst Manager? No hesitation there - NORMAN BODELL!!! It still sends shivers down my spine mentioning his name!
