Forty eight years ago Barrow were the last team to be ejected from the Football League by vote.

So Bluebirds boss Ian Evatt thinks it would be ironic if a vote was to now decide if they return to the league in 2020.

Speaking on the Alan Brazil Show on TalkSport, Evatt said such a situation would be “crazy”.

“So 48 years ago we were kicked out via vote and there is a bitter taste in the town about that,” he said.

“As it turns out it will probably end up where it is a vote on whether we go back in to the league or not. That’s how crazy that is.”

Evatt said that top of the table Barrow’s return to the EFL would make a massive financial difference to the club.

“What happens and how they come to that conclusion we don’t know, we don’t have the answers to that.

“I think the National League are going to have to sit tight a little bit because there is so much at stake with the EFL”
