Bluebird Spotlight: David Ingham

24 May 2021

This summer we’ve introduced a brand new feature to keep the brilliant Barrow fans centre-stage in our coverage and we’ve got another featured Bluebirds today.

Next up is David Ingham, a Bid Writer who supports the lads from The Wilkie Stand with his friends, though he also brings his children, partner and parents along to some games too.

Who did we play in your first Barrow game and what are your memories of the day?
Scarborough. Can't remember any of it, I was only four!

Which Barrow match that you’ve seen stands out more than most and why?
Can't pick just one - so many stick out for different reasons. Play off final at Burton, Wembley x 2, Bournemouth away in the Cup, the Neil Tarrant Nuneaton game, winning 5-3 at Boston, Notts County away, Lowestoft away to win the league.

The common theme is the emotion of the occasions. Nobody watches Barrow for the standard of the football, it's all about being with your mates, your family, your club.

Who has been your favourite all-time Barrow player and why?
Paul Jones. One of the few who stuck with us in 1999 and returned years later to captain us to promotion and the Wembley win. Wholehearted player. Jonah got what it meant to play for Barrow. He loves us and we love him. Please give him free tickets for any game he wants to see next season!

Who is your favourite current Barrow player and why?
Joel Dixon. Makes me look stylish.

Which has been your favourite Barrow goal that you’ve seen live and why?
Kenny Lowe – semi-final v Colne, 1990. Tremendous technique and sent us to Wembley.

Honourable mention for Jason Walker's Barrovian Bedlam inducing goal at Wembley.

What is the favourite away ground you have visited and why?
Stalybridge. Nice ground, always a good day on the lash too. I liked Torquay and Notts County too.

What are your hopes for Barrow in the 2021/22 season?
Just to do the best we can with the resources we've got. Do the simple stuff well off the field.
