Former Blues Full-Back Kenlock Joins Barrow
Thursday, 4th Aug 2022 19:15

Former Blues left-back Myles Kenlock has joined League Two Barrow having been released by Town at the end of last season.

Kenlock, 25, joined the Blues' academy in 2014 and went on to make 94 first team starts and nine sub appearances without scoring a competitive goal.

The South Londoner was left out of the Blues’ League One squad at the start of last season and made only two Papa John’s Trophy appearances before moving to Colchester United on loan in January, making 19 starts and one sub appearance and scoring his first three senior goals.

“We want two for every position and felt we were a little short in the left back area,” Barrow manager Pete Wild told his club’s official site.

“He’s a player of great quality that has played in the Championship and League One.

“To bring someone of Myles’s quality to the club shows what we are trying to do here at Barrow, and once we get him up to speed in the next couple weeks, he’ll be another player fighting for another position.”

Happy he's found a club. On his day he's a pretty good player at L1 level. It's just those days were too infrequent for us and where we need to be.

Good to him in football at a decent level still. Confidence is a massive factor in football, and Myles could do with it in spades. Hopefully Barrow will be a good match.

All the best for the future Miles 👍👍

I do sometimes wonder what Lambert would have achieved given the budget that Cook was given. Basically he over achieved with a side of lower L1 and L2 standard players and even Downes and Dozzell were under cooked at that stage, others were long past their sell by date. He was a much better manager than the league table shows and I can only imagine the crap he must have put up with under the Evans regime. The new ITFC is a million miles away from the likes of Kenlock.

Good on him.
Barrow play some decent football.
Hopefully he and they do well.
I was wondering if we would have looked at that Robbie Gotts they had who ran rings around us in the cup.

Barrow were always my favourite non league team,followed their results ever since they dropped out of the football league around 1970..In those days there was no automatic promotion or relegation,teams at the bottom of the old 4th division had to be re-elected by the rest of the league to stay up.
Anyway good luck Myles,but I hope we are not playing against you next season!!

Well you'll need two players Pete..One at left back covering for Kenlock when he's caught up field or out of position.

I don't think I've ever seen a Left Back less seen playing to his position. Some maverick moments going forward, but used to hide behind my sofa when the opposition were racing towards our half!

Potential to be a very good League 1 player - improved vastly when with us, but he seemed to lose concentration at times.
However, not an insurmountable problem, and surprised Colchester weren’t interested in keeping him.
Good Luck Miles at Barrow, your New Club.

Great servant of ITFC, who always did his best when called on, and didn't seem to complain when he was out of contention for long periods. May not have set the world alight, but often a decent player even at Championship level, so should be a good catch for Barrow. I wish him luck.

Good luck to him, I hope he does well. I don't know what went on but he didn't seem to be treated in quite the same way as some others. Let's hope Barrow are avoided in the cup !

I really thought he was gonna be our long term left back but it wasn’t to be for one reason or another. Good luck to Myles glad he’s found a club👍

All the best to you Myles. Barrow well and truly put us out of the FA Cup last season so they are no mugs.

Linkboy13 added 10:51 - Aug 5
Good going forward but suspect when players ran at him tended to get out muscled quite easily. Hope he does well but will find it hard in the rough and tumble of league two.

Kenlock was unfairly in my opinion a target of the boo boys. He’s league one or in the right side championship level. Don’t get me wrong, he’s not likely a POTY candidate but the line between success and failure in the bottom three tiers is very thin for most players. How many players have had long championship careers because they were in a very good team

Not good enough for us. Not good enough for Colchester. Not sure what Barrow have seen….
