AFTER narrowly surviving relegation, a football club is to improve its stadium ahead of the upcoming season.

Cumbria County Councillor Mark Wilson was part of a group of officials who toured Holker Street last month.

And he told The Mail that the stadium could see more improvements to its site including up to 300 more seats, as long as Barrow survived the drop.

Barrow sealed their safety after John Rooney's goal clinched a 1-0 win over Sutton United which completed the survival job at Holker Street last month.

But they had to wait for confirmation of their safety thanks to the delayed finish at Oldham Athletic's game against Salford City.

As the home of Barrow AFC, the ground has undergone a number of renovations in recent years including two new refurbished roofs in summer 2020.

Both the Ray Wilkie and Brian Arrowsmith Stands were refurbished and painted ahead of the start of the new season.
