Gary Simpson has joined National League side Barrow as the club's new assistant manager.

Simpson, 54, has previously managed at Macclesfield Town and Lincoln City but was sacked by the Imps in 2014.

He joins Paul Cox's side as replacement for first-team coach Alex Meechan, who was one of three backroom support staff to leave the club on Sunday.

Barrow, who are currently 16th in the National League table, have won just one of their last eight league games.
