Following an excellent month for the Bluebirds, Barrow Manager Pete Wild has deservedly been voted as League Two Manager of the Month for November.
Barrow was simply unstoppable in November and recorded six wins in six games, with the Bluebirds flying up to third in the league in the process.
Wild was delighted to receive the award and was full of praise for the entire club, dedicating this award to everyone.
He said: “I feel very proud, I’m very proud to accept it on behalf of everyone at the football club. I think the first thing to say is that it’s a reward for the whole football club, for every staff member, for every player, for every office member of staff.
“I think we should all take enormous credit for what’s gone on this month and what’s gone on for the last 18 months, and it shows just how far the football club has progressed during this period and everybody should be really proud of this moment.
“It's been a great football month, we’re really pleased with how the football has been going at the moment and we’re really pleased with how we’re putting runs of consistency together, which you need to do at this level. We’re really pleased with how everybody has approached the month, and how everybody’s delivered the month, the tough thing about football is that you can’t have one good month and you need to have several good months so hopefully, it’s the start of several good months and hopefully it’s more of the same as we approach the new year.”
The Gaffer finished by saying how pleased he was to see just how much the result run of results has meant to the town as a whole.
He added: “Within football and the Cumbria fraternity, Barrow is now being seen as a club which is on the up and Barrow as a Town is on the up, so I think there are so many positives on and off the pitch at the football club, which is at the hub of the community. The tangible benefits are that we want to have a fantastic season, but what we can also see is that we have a community and a football club moving in the same direction, and once you have that anything can happen.”
