Barrow AFC managing director Andrew Casson wants the club’s new manager to root out problem players in the Bluebirds dressing room.

Casson had strong words for the Barrow squad in the wake of Micky Moore’s axing as manager on Tuesday.

The sacking came hot on the heels of a poor display in Sunday’s FA Cup fourth qualifying round defeat at Northern Premier League Shaw Lane, a performance Casson has described as ‘shocking’.

And, while Moore was the man to get the bullet, Casson recognised the players themselves have a lot to answer for – labelling some as disillusioned and suggesting several may well want out of Holker Street.

With that in mind, he said of any potential new manager: “The key characteristic is going to be someone who can come in, ask the tough questions, and really not take any attitudes that don’t push this team forward.

“Myself and my father (Paul, the AFC owner), the board of directors, we had a very good season last year, but we have made all the mistakes we said we wouldn’t make in terms of paying a lot of money to get certain kinds of players up here.”
