Ian Evatt is the the Vanarama National League manager of the month for December!
Barrow boss Ian Evatt has been named the Vanarama National League manager of the month for December after a fantastic run of form!
After a tricky spell in October/November, the Bluebirds players produced a string of superb performances in the run up to Christmas and over the festive period under the gaffers guidance.
Following on from a win at Aldershot and a home draw against high flying Wrexham at the end of November, Barrow started December with a bang with an impressive away performance earning a 2-0 win at Braintree.
A week later a Tyler Smith strike sent supporters home happy with a 1-0 win over Maidstone at the Furness Building Society Stadium.
A tricky festive period then started, and we got off to a fantastic start with an impressive 1-0 win over Solihull at Damson Park, followed on Boxing Day with a 1-1 draw with AFC Fylde in a game where we perhaps deserved more.
The BT Sport cameras rolled into town a few days later as we hosted Salford City. In a game that had just about everything, a last gasp header from Jacob Blyth sparked wild celebrations in front of a packed home crowd.
Our last game of the month saw us pick up another hard earned point against AFC Fylde, this time at Mill Farm, the Bluebirds having the better chances in the game though we just couldn’t quite find the back of the net.
The scene is now set for an exciting second half of the season with Evatt at the helm, as we look to push towards the play offs!
