Scott Quigley has revealed his delight after being voted Barrow Fans’ Player of the Year for the 2020/21 campaign.
The front man helped himself to 15 goals during his debut season in the Football League and fought off competition from Joel Dixon and Patrick Brough to land the supporters’ award.
Quigley’s all-action approach on the pitch as well as his honesty off it has endeared him to Bluebirds supporters and he says he can’t wait to get back playing in front of them during 2021/22.
“It’s been a real rollercoaster of a season, but I am really pleased they think I am the Player of the Year, I am made up by that, to be fair,” he told iFollow.
“The fans are putting all their money up to watch games or go on iFollow this year so we should have a good relationship with them, and you should try and be as transparent as you can.
“I think you have to show what you’re thinking; sometimes people can think you don’t care but every one of us in that changing room this year and I think that became apparent.
“I genuinely believe that had we had Holker Street bouncing it would have been a completely different season – the fans make it. When we had fans in for those few games around Christmas it just made football again.
If we can get 5,000 in there next season, what an atmosphere that will be with all the fans so close to the pitch and how on top of you they are – it’s going to be brilliant.”
