Barrow AFC managing director Andrew Casson says first team boss Ady Pennock has his full backing.

Casson spoke with Pennock at length earlier this week in the aftermath of the Bluebirds’ nail-biting final-day escape from National League relegation. There are important matters to be addressed suring the summer months as Casson, his dad and chairman Paul, the board and directors and management team try and ensure AFC don’t find themselves fighting against the drop again in 2018/19.

Casson said it is likely there will be several comings and goings in player personnel. He also stated there will be a tightening of the purse strings, with the emphasis on trying to players who really want to pull on the Barrow shirt following the disappointing performances of last season.

As far as Pennock’s role is concerned, Casson said as far he was concerned it is ‘business as usual.’

“Ady has a rolling one-year contract. It doesn’t really expire, it just goes on until whatever the outcome is in the end,” said Casson.

“As far as we are concerned I spoke to his representaive on Monday and I spoke to Ady on Monday and Tuesday and as far as our conversations have gone it’s pretty much been business as usual.”
