Make the most of it

“MAKE the most of it.” That’s the advice to the current players from the man who lifted the trophy when Barrow were successful in 1990.
“They whole day went very quickly. It flew by,” says Glenn Skivington, the centre half whose polished play was a feature of what he considers the greatest day in the club’s history.
“It went so quickly so you have to make the most of what is a great occasion. I do recall the game.The first part was very much an evenly balanced affair. Then our midfield took control and I thought we produced some good quality football before emerging worthy winners.
“It was the sort of day that you thought would never happen. It made it all the more special because the vast majority of the players were from Barrow or fairly local.
“There was a real local connection. A lot of the supporters felt a strong bond with the team. We still meet up with lads who were at the game as part of a weekend in London and have a laugh and a joke about it.”
Now a partner in a law firm in North-west London, Glenn says: “The Trophy final has to be the highlight of the career of any non-league footballer.
“Ask them if they would rather win a league or win a cup final at Wembley and if they are truthful they will always say winning at Wembley.
“It is remarkable that Barrow are there again after 20 years. Achievements like this rarely come around and I wish the current Barrow players all the best of luck.”
Will Glenn be there time? “Of course. And I’ll probably have the easiest journey of anyone as I live only 20 minutes away from the stadium.”
