Barrow have announced the appointment of Pete Wild as their new manager on a three-year deal following his departure from Halifax.

The former Oldham boss, 38, departed The Shay on Thursday after Halifax were beaten by Chesterfield in the National League play-offs.

Barrow chairman Paul Hornby told the club’s official website: “We are delighted to welcome Pete to Barrow.

“He’s a manager who has been on our radar for some time, due to the phenomenal job he’s done over the past three years at FC Halifax Town.

“He’s not only a good young coach, but he can spot and develop young players.

“He’s exactly the type of manager we were after and he immediately bought into what we are trying to build here at Barrow.”
