How to find us.

Furness Rugby Union Football Club was founded in 1902 and is one of only two Rugby Union Teams in Barrow in Furness. Even though we have a large ground it is not one of the easiest to find:-

       Follow the A590 to Barrow, after passing the Golf Course on the right, take the first left on the roundabout and follow the sign for Furness Abbey, take the second exit on the next mini roundabout, follow the road past the Hospital, which is on the right, continue for a further half a mile (you are now on Abbey Road). Look for a standard Post box on the left (Ostley House on the right) and turn there into Croslands Park Road, continue for a further 200 yards and turn right along side the first bungalow down a very narrow driveway. This is the entrance to The Strawberry Grounds. The access is NOT large enough for buses so they will have to remain parked on Croslands Park Road.

  The Club itself is entirely self supporting and depends on the Income from its members over the Clubhouse bar and sponsors to keep our Teams operating.

    If you wish to become a member of the club, either a player supporter or Social member do not hesitate to turn up or contact any of the telephone numbers or email address on this web site.

Terry Walmsley

It is with great sadness that the club has to announce that James Terence Walmsley (known to us all as Terry) died peacefully on Monday 8th July aged 79. Terry was a regular fixture on the Old Farts bench on Saturday afternoons, which won’t seem quite the same without him. A popular figure with both young and old, he will be missed. RIP old friend.

Terry's family has advised that the funeral will take place at Barrow Crematorium at 11.30 on Friday 19th July and afterwards at Furness Rugby Club. All are invited.

Friday 28th June

  The Club is very sad to announce that Jackie Gibson, wife of life member Graham (Gibby) Gibson. Passed away earlier this week after a long illness. Friends are invited to attend the funeral which will be held at the Trevelyan Service Chapel in Dalkeith Street Barrow, at 1 pm on Friday 5th July and afterwards at the Club.

   The Club AGM will be held on Wednesday July 17th. Starting at 19:00 hrs, as per poster below.

Friday 10th May

  At an SGM held at Penrith last night we were informed “that at present” we were heading for a 14 team Level 8 Cumbria 1 league. This is all dependant on Cheshire, Lancashire  and NE leagues agreeing with what has been noted. If this does not pass then we could be back to square 1. The final meeting between interested parties should be on the 23rd May, still giving time for fixtures to be sorted. The 14 team Cumbria 1 league is looking like this:- Cockermouth, Wigton, Hawcoat Park, Whitehaven, St. Benedicts, Upper Eden, Silloth, Workington, Furness, Windermere, Millom, Carlisle Crusaders, Creighton & Egremont.

 Hopefully any 2nd teams will be joined in a Merit Table league to continue promoting Rugby in Cumbria.

Thursday 2nd May

  As you are probably aware the season came to a grinding halt on the 20th April when all games were cancelled (probably because of lack of interest). I will be attending a meeting at Penrith on the 9th May where we will find the format for next season, rumours say we will be back to a Cumbria 1 league with 14 teams involved, but I will inform every one when I find out.

Tuesday 2nd April
