BARROW AFC’s Chief Executive Levi Gill has provided some insight into the club’s exciting plans to keep progressing on and off the pitch after League Two survival was confirmed.

He spoke about plans to renovate the ground including an increase in seating and to rejuvenate the dressing rooms.

Mr Gill said: “Now that Rob Kelly has steered us over the magic line to safety, it seems a good time to take a breath and update everybody on recent and upcoming activities from around the Club.

“What Rob and his staff and all the players have achieved in recent months has been nothing short of incredible and it’s impossible to put into words what their success means to the town. Now supporters can plan for a ‘real’ start to life in the EFL and once again becoming the heart and soul of this Football Club every Saturday.

“On behalf of everybody associated with Barrow AFC, I’d like to thank Rob and his team for accomplishing what every fan must have felt at certain points this season wouldn’t be possible. Now we’ve done it, and everybody deserves to share in the relief and joy of this moment.

“As a lot of fans will be aware, there’s a requirement for the club to increase the size of our dressing rooms to comply with EFL regulations.

“We’ve looked at various solutions during the season and in the end, we’ve decided to remodel the ground floor of the existing Cross Bar building in order to expand the current dressing rooms to the required size.

“This solution comes with a number of advantages, but the key deciding factor was the ongoing discussions on where an additional circa 800 seats could be installed next summer. These are required in order for us to reach 2,000 total seats, another EFL obligation.

“At the moment it’s important to stress that no final decision has been made on how best to accommodate the extra seating, but the board is committed to finding the best solution and felt that as many options as possible should be left on the table.

“The remodelling work will commence as soon as the final home game is played.”
