AFC lift trophy

BARROW AFC skipper Gavin Skelton lifted aloft the Chas Kendall (Coral) Trophy last night.

The Bluebirds fought out a goalless draw with Cumbrian rivals Workington at Borough Park, having won the first leg 3-0 at Holker Street earlier this month.

Workington manager Darren Edmondson, who ran the rule over former Holker Old Boys and Bluebirds striker Wayne Curtis in last night’s game, has confirmed that the Reds have made offers to defender Niall Cowperthwaite – son of Barrow legend Colin – and Crooklands Casuals winger Chris Wraighte.

Last night’s game marked the end of the Bluebirds’ week-long training camp in the Lake District, during which time they took part in a number of activities, including fell walking and mountain biking.

Barrow have just two more pre-season friendlies to play – away at Lancaster on Tuesday and at home against a Bolton XI on Friday – before the new Blue Square Bet Premier season starts on Saturday, August 11.

Barrow: S Pearson, Flynn, M Pearson, Hessey, Skelton, Hoskin, Owen, Hunter, Baker, Rutherford, Boyes. Subs: Hurst, Harvey, Anoruo, Bayliss.
