Former Barrow AFC boss Ady Pennock has thanked Bluebirds supporters and his back-room staff for their help following his departure.

Pennock’s seven-month reign came to an end on Friday when the club released a statement saying the club had parted company with the manager and his assistant Jamie Day. The exits came in the aftermath of a club statement last week saying club chiefs plan to slash the player budget among other cost-cutting measures ahead of the 2018/19 National League season.

Pennock penned the following note to Bluebirds supporters.

“As the club heads in a different direction next season, it means I must leave to allow that to happen and I wanted to say a few thank-yous before I go,” he said. “When I became manager back in October there were plenty of people questioning “what am I going up there for?”

“But I have really enjoyed my six months at what is a great club with some great people. The supporters have been incredible and I would like to say a big thank-you!

“You have been brilliant from my first game against Aldershot to backing us in numbers on the final day against Chester. Let there be no doubt that your support, particularly on the road as we picked up vital points at places like Aldershot and Bromley, played no small part in helping this club retain its place in the National League.

“I’d also like to say thank-you to my staff, to Jamie Day, Grant Holt, Lindsay Davis, Mick Holgate and Dean Scholey for all of their efforts.”
