BARROW AFC manager Pete Wild says his League Two manager of the month award is for everyone working hard to see the club progress.

The Bluebirds boss picked up the accolade for March – having led his side to 14-point haul from six games last month.

It is the second time this season, Wild has won Manager of the Month having also scooped the award back in November.

Speaking to the club’s official website, he said: “I’m really pleased to receive this award.

“This is my second year as a Manager in the Football League and to have won this award twice this season is a magnificent achievement but overall, I just feel a great sense of pride for the project we’re doing at the football club.

“I feel this is an award which belongs to every member of staff and every player at the football club because of how hard they work, and to be the one to receive this award on behalf of everyone at Barrow AFC gives me an enormous sense of pride.”

Having endured a tricky February, which saw three defeats and two games postponed in the league, March was a real shot in the arm for the Bluebirds.

And Wild felt it was reward for sticking to their guns and believing in the plan.

He added: “February was our first real sticky patch of the season, and we always knew that when these times come you need to stick to your processes, remember what you’re good at, remember what got you here, and know that if you hold your nerve, you’ll come out the other side of it.

“March was a massive month, and the way we approached each game and the way we went back to basics by being tough to beat and hard to play against was really important.

“We also created a lot of chances and dominated the football, so to only concede two goals in the entire month, with one being a set piece and the other being a consolation goal in six really tough games was a real credit to the squad and how they’ve gone about their business.”

The Bluebirds boss has seen massive changes since he arrived at the club.

But he admits he sees this as the start of something rather than having reached their goal.

“If you look back two years to when we first walked in the door to where we are today, I’d say the place is unrecognisable and that’s a credit to everybody at the football club,” he said.

“But we also know it’s not the end yet and there’s so much more to come from us on and off the pitch.

“It’s a really special time to be a Barrow fan right now, so I accept this award for every member of staff and every player at the football club.”
