Connor Brown Departs The Bluebirds

31 January 2023

Connor Brown has today left The Bluebirds, after his contract was cancelled by mutual consent.

Owning the #2 shirt since he was signed by Ian Evatt just under five years ago, Brown’s stay at Holker Street was defined by his hard-working attitude, which quickly made him a fan favourite.

A member of the 2019/20 National League title-winning squad, Brown made 18 appearances across the curtailed season, and netted once for the eventual Champions.

After being out of the squad for almost four months in 2020/21, Bluebirds fans may remember his crucial Man of the Match performance against Forest Green Rovers in late April, the game that sealed Barrow’s EFL safety.

All in all, the defender made 107 appearances in all competitions for Barrow, and found the net on two occasions, including the winning goal against Bradford City in 2020.

Boss Pete Wild has paid tribute to Connor, and is thankful for the effort he has shown in his time at Barrow.

“I would like to thank Connor for all his efforts for the Football Club,” said Wild.

“He has been an exceptional pro throughout the time I’ve been at the Club.

“Connor had a desire to go and get regular first team football, and I wasn’t going to stand in his way.”

Everybody connected with Barrow AFC wish Connor all the best for the future.

We will forever be thankful for his hard work and determination, and what he has helped the Football Club achieve in his time here.
