BT Sport’s television cameras descended on Holker Street once again on Saturday as we allowed the nation’s viewing public a glimpse into the magic spell that Ian Evatt has cast over this little corner of our island nation.

Subscribers could hardly be disappointed by what they saw.

Bromley represent a different challenge to some of our other rivals. Like Solihull Moors, they advocate a direct and physical style of play which can be difficult to deal with.

Even Barrow, with the immense Matty Platt marshalling the back line, had a few nervy moments where corners and free kicks had to be scrambled away.

It was a test that will do us no harm as we progress through the season, and one which, happily, we passed. We have still yet to concede a goal in 2020.

At the other end of the field, the Bluebirds were patient and predatory. Keeping the ball moving will inevitably tire the opposition, particularly physical teams who may struggle to match our fitness levels in the final quarter of a match.

So it proved, as our two goals could ultimately have been added to.

Ultimately, it was another comfortable victory, and one achieved against a side who until Saturday were still seen as one of our title rivals. It’s difficult to make that case now.

Bromley have a mountain to climb to catch us, and it’s a mountain which gets steeper with every passing game. Barrow have not been beaten since October, and we rarely look like a side who can be troubled by anything the league has to offer.

It will have been encouraging to Ian and the players to see another bumper crowd of 3,155 cheering them on. The community continues to get behind the team as this season progresses, and this support is absolutely vital as time goes on.

This club is at its best when its leadership, its players and its fan base are aligned. As the full time whistle blew on Saturday night, few could deny that this was the case.

And few could doubt where this team will end up in May, if we can continue our shared momentum.

* With the very real prospect of promotion back to the Football League, Barrow AFC now have to give serious consideration to what this means for the club and, in particular, for the stadium.

All fans will know that there are various requirements associated with life in League Two such as ground capacity, numbers of seats, electronic turnstiles.

Of these conditions, some come in to effect immediately and others are phased in over three years to give newly promoted clubs some breathing space.

Dialogue is ongoing between the club and the Football League in order to ensure that we meet these requirements, and a ground development plan will be created and managed accordingly.

The other challenge before us is catering to the increased crowds.

Fans will hopefully have noticed some benefit to the six additional toilets installed prior to the Bromley game.

Other issues are raised with me regularly, from improved lighting around the ground to a more varied catering offering for those fans who for whatever reason perhaps don’t like pies.

* The recent announcement of a contract extension for Dior Angus will be welcome news to all Barrow AFC fans, and is the latest of several steps taken by the board to ensure that our best assets are secured for next season.

This is consistent with the request of Ian Evatt, who should be commended for being unwilling to sign new players just to sit on the bench but has also been very clear that he expects the club to do everything we can to retain the squad we have.

Not unreasonable on the evidence of recent results!

Interest in our players is inevitable given the historic run of success that we’re enjoying, but the BAFC board have ensured that no decisions will be taken out of our hands.

We aren’t beholden to release clauses or players who want to move on.

Instead what we have is a highly talented, highly motivated squad who enjoy playing for our manager and don’t want to go anywhere.

This is coupled with a board of directors who have no appetite to cash in and instead are looking forward to seeing this club succeed on the pitch for the remainder of the season.
