Directors plea to Barrow AFC fans ahead of Macclesfield cup clash

THE Barrow AFC board of directors have issued a rallying call for supporters to get behind the club’s struggling team.

Have your say

BAFC were given 5000 quid for hosting this televised match, with an attendance of 867 & divide 5000 pound against say 13 quid entrance fee equates to 385 folk paying 13 quid to get in, so really you could argue that the attendance monies gained = Att of 1252 So they never lost out at all.

Rather than the Board issuing rallying calls on the eve of a lucrative FA Cup fixture, is it not about time they looked at new ways of improving and sustaining attendances throughout the season. It is quite evident for those who go on a regular basis that Barrow is failing to attract young people to support their local team, and no wonder when a Barrow Season ticket is more expensive than that of Wigan and Manchester City!! The club needs some new ideas at the top to sustain this club for the long term, rather than hoping for an FA Cup run every couple of years to draw in crowds.

Its the 867 hardy souls from Friday night that should have first shot at the Cardiff game tickets if Barrow get through not the glory hunters that will see holker street for two games this season.

Our home record sucks, other than cup games. I think again the people of Barrow will turn out as In cup games we seem to be a different team. Unfortunatly as said before you need to start winning and the crowds will return. I think 800 plus crowd for the home record we have is good, take a look at attendences for the other teams. Good luck tomorrow as Cardiff at home will help the situation and i know they will not relish comming to Cumbria.
