The first home game of the season is approaching with Barrow visiting the Shay. Here we have a look at the last five meetings between the two sides, with 4 games taking place in the national league and one in the FA trophy.

31/08/15 Halifax 3-1 Barrow

Neil Aspin oversaw the Shaymen at the time. The town were losing this game 1-0 till ten minutes to go where they came back to win 3-1 scoring in the 81st, 83rd and 90th minute of the game, with goals from Shaun Tuton, CJ Hamilton and Jordan Burrow.

19/01/16 Halifax 1-0 Barrow

The 2nd round of the FA trophy, one of the games that led Halifax to success at Wembley when beating Grimsby in the FA trophy final 1-0. Neil Aspin was no longer in charge at this point. Gareth McClelland was caretaker, then Darren Kelly took over but then he left which left the job to Jim Harvey the man who lead the team to FA trophy success. Shaun Tuton also grabbed the goal in this game.

28/03/16 Barrow 4-1 Halifax

Certainly, a result to forget and after beating Barrow twice that season already, Town must have really fancied themselves, but it’s clear it didn’t go to plan. Barrow were two goals ahead at half time and made it three on the 81st minute. Connor Hughes scored a consolation, but our very own Ben Tomlinson made it four in the last minute for Barrow.

08/08/17 Barrow 0-0 Halifax

It was the second game of the season and both teams had lost their first games so both teams were looking to impress. Town had just come back up to the national league after being relegated in the 15/16 season. They played out a goalless draw which left Town with one point out of six.

02/12/17 Halifax 0-1 Barrow

This was the last game we played against Barrow, which ended in a 1-0 defeat. It was the last couple months of Billy Heath’s reign as Halifax Town manager.

Halifax and Barrow have both won two out of the last five meetings, with one draw also. We may not have beat Barrow in our last three fixtures, but we believe we can do it when they come to The Shay on Tuesday night!
