End of an Era at Barrow AFC?
With the result of the vote by the membership unknown until the end of the month this Saturday’s game at Holker Street could indeed see the end of an era in the life of Barrow AFC. Should the vote go in favour of the takeover by Mr. Casson then the present ownership of the club will be transferred from the members into the hands of the potential new owner Mr. Casson.
As a members club we have experienced some wonderful times together along the way winning promotion, two 3rd Round FA Cup ties at Middlesbrough and Sunderland and our finest day of all on the 8th May 2010 when against all the odds we won the FA Trophy at Wembley for a second time beating Stevenage 2-1 in extra time with Jason Walker’s wonder goal, a record to be proud of.
Please make every effort to come along and enjoy our last game of the season followed by our annual presentation of awards after the game in the Cross Bar. This will be at approximately 5.30pm when we will be able to celebrate the efforts of all the members of the team but especially those few who in the eyes of the fans and players deserve that extra praise for their efforts throughout the season. Under the leadership of Darren and Alex they have developed many of the players into much better players than when they first took charge and because of this improvement they have achieved a solid mid-table finish from where they took over in December last year. The game could also be the last for the present board and therefore possibly your last opportunity to see them in their present role.
On behalf of the Board of Directors of Barrow AFC I would like to pass on our sincere thanks to all who have supported the club not only this season but also through the good and the difficult times the club has faced over the years and should it be our final game in charge we wish you and Barrow AFC all the best for the future.
(Vice-Chairman on behalf of all Barrow AFC Directors)
