National League strugglers Barrow have appointed Ady Pennock as the club’s new manager.
The Bluebirds sacked previous boss Micky Moore after just 11 games, following their shock FA Cup defeat to Shaw Lane, making Pennock the club’s third manager of the season.
He has a wealth of non-league experience, having been in charge of Forest Green Rovers and Welling United, and was most recently in the EFL with Gillingham.
Pennock won just six of his 32 games in charge of Gills, and left in September with the club 22nd in League One, but a Barrow club statement read: “We are delighted to have Adrian onboard.
“It quickly became clear that he was the stand out candidate, having met with him at our games against Ebbsfleet and Chester.
“We are convinced that he can lead us forward, to climb up the table and help us build the club in the community as well.”
Pennock’s first game in charge of Barrow comes tomorrow, as high-flying Aldershot Town visit Holker Street.
With no win in their last five games, the Bluebirds find themselves 22nd in the National League, but a third win of the season could see them climb out of the relegation zone.
