Barrow eye big pay-day
Gay Meadow, home of Shrewsbury
Barrow are confident they can win at Gay Meadow

Barrow manager Kenny Lowe has targeted a big pay-day for his side if they can get past Shrewsbury in the FA Cup on Saturday.

Lowe has been in charge of the UniBond outfit since 1999, and they have been in administration for the whole time.

And the former Barnet midfielder knows just how important going further in the Cup could be for the Holker Street club.


One big pay-day could secure the club's future into next season

"The importance of this second round game and the possible financial rewards are not lost on people at Barrow," Lowe told BBC Sport Online.

"The prospect of a big pay-day is a huge incentive.

"Not just for the glory, but also the fact that it can maybe secure the club's future for the rest of this season and into the next.

"Everyone on the board is aware of it, but also the fans and even the players, to an extent.

"This is a precarious time in football, especially at the lower levels of the game."

Despite the harsh realities of Barrow's situation, Lowe is confident that his side can spring a surprise at Gay Meadow.

"Last season we played Oldham, and the season before we played Leyton Orient in the cup, and we gave them very good games.

"So maybe it's going to be third time lucky on Saturday."
