DARREN SHERIDAN LEAVES BARROW
Barrow joint-boss, Darren Sheridan, has left the club by mutual consent after 5 years at Holker Street.
Following a series of meetings between Darren and board representatives in the past week, and after consultation with the other directors, all agreed that to part company is in the best interests of the club.
The move followed allegations made to the Barrow AFC board, but it has been agreed that the investigation will not be further pursued and the matter will remain private between the parties concerned.
Barrow AFC would like to wholeheartedly thank Darren for his service at the club since he joined in January 2007. As first a player and then as player-manager from November 2007, he has been a major part in the finest sustained spell of success in the club's 111 year history.
Chairman Brian Keen said 'It is a very sad day, but unfortunately this is the best thing for the club and for Shez himself. We hope he finds another club soon and wish him every success in the future.'
Having scored in a 1-0 win against Hinckley in 2007 that saved Barrow from Conference North relegation, Sheridan became joint boss with Dave Bayliss later that year and was the anchor in midfield of Barrow's promotion run. He scored the winning goal at Workington in April 2008 that arguably made a play-off place possible.
Following promotion to the Conference, Bayliss and Sheridan masterminded trips in the FA Cup Third Round to Middlesbrough and Sunderland, plus an FA Trophy Final triumph over Stevenage at Wembley.
Last season he played another pivotal role in midfield as Barrow went on a fine run in the spring to secure a fourth successive season at Conference level.
Barrow AFC will make no further comment on this issue.
