BARROW manager Pete Wild has been hit with a one-game touchline ban and fine following his red card against Colchester United, last weekend.

Wild, 39, was sent off by referee Declan Bourne shortly after the half-time whistle during his side's 4-1 victory over the U's, at the JobServe Community Stadium.

The former Oldham Athletic and FC Halifax boss was angered by an incident in the final seconds of the first half when Barrow were denied a penalty after Robbie Gotts tumbled in the area under Zach Mitchell’s challenge.


Gotts was eventually stretchered off and Wild made his feelings clear to the officials as they walked off, resulting in him receiving a red card.

With Wild watching from the stands in the second half, Barrow went on to win the game 4-1 after scoring three late goals against the U's.

In a statement, Barrow said: 'Barrow AFC can confirm Manager Pete Wild has been handed a one-game touchline ban and fined £500 following our SkyBet League Two clash against Colchester United on the 25th of November.

'We can confirm Pete has admitted to the charge and has accepted the standard penalty, meaning he won’t be in the dugout for our FA Cup clash against Maidstone United this weekend.'

As a result of his touchline ban, Wild will not be in the dugout for Barrow's FA Cup second-round tie at George Elokobi's Maidstone United, on Saturday.
