Evatt Urges Players To Have More Big Days Next Season

Ian Evatt is dreaming of more day like Easter Monday at Barrow.

Over 3,000 supporters crammed into Holker Street - the club’s biggest attendance for years.

They saw the Bluebirds put in a season-best display to beat Hartlepool United 1-0 thanks to Josh Kay’s stunning goal.

The final home game of the season will live long in the memory of the Barrow manager - and he wants it to stick in the minds of his players, too.

Evatt firmly believes more bumper crowds will watch the club in action next season if they can build on the current campaign.

They struggled last season and only avoided relegation this time last year but under their new manager they have been looking up all the way - and not down.

“We were all very proud of the whole club,” he said after Monday’s win over Pools.

“It was fantastic to see the place packed out and it was a brilliant occasion, and it was probably the best performance of the season.

“But the challenge for us now is to make sure we have more days like this next season and to see the ground full again.

“We know what we need to do for that to happen and that’s what we’ve got to aim for.”
