MP lends his support for the cause to see AFC promoted

Simon Fell MP in Westminster

On Wednesday the Vanarama National League took the decision to cancel all of their remaining fixtures.

Barrow AFC sit proudly top of the league and are regarded by many people, both near and far, as the worthy league winners and, therefore, to have earned promotion back into the English Football League.

Local MP for Barrow & Furness, Simon Fell, has today written to the Chief Executive’s of both the English Football League and the National League, calling on them to “do the right thing” and promote the Bluebirds up into League Two.

Commenting on Thursday, Mr Fell said: “I have today written to the Chief Executives of both the English Football League and the National League.

“For those who know me, you know that I’m not a football man. But even a novice like me can see that Barrow AFC has put in the hard yards and deserves to be promoted.

“The Club, supporters, team, and manager have been incredible – pulling together and ending the season (as much as was played) on a high.

“So, I join the thousands of people locally, and the many people in sport media and across football, who are calling for the right thing to be done – for Barrow AFC to be promoted back into the English Football League.”
