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.

EGM - 29th July

The club will be holding a training session on the day starting at 12:00.

This will be followed by the EGM when you will be able to have your say as to who will be Captain(s) for the season. Plus vote on on or off Committee Members.

This will be a good time to pay your Membership Fees and save £5 the process, or for those with cash flow problems have a word with me and we’ll sort things out.

We will also be having a BBQ after the official proceedings, and the club will be supplying a keg of beer, which will be shared equally between all.

But as the saying goes when its gone its gone.

Wednesday 31st May

   Last Sunday saw a joint Junior squad made up of Players from Millom and Furness Combine and head to Hawcoat Park to take them on in a 10’s Festival. Unfortunately attendance was poor to say the least, but on a positive note our players all got a run out.

  On the same day the Jeff Simm 7’s tournament took place. We managed to turn a team out and they finished in a very creditable 2nd place being beaten by the eventual winners Rossendale.



The team consisted of:- Ben Hughes, Jordan Ashton, Matty Studt, Dillan Taputu, Corne Els, James Armitstead, Scott Lancaster and Kieron Mason. Well done all the medals and fizzy end to the day were well deserved.

Friday 24th February

    If anyone’s interested the firsts have a cup game at Windermere tomorrow. A 35 seater will be leaving the club at approx. 11.45 so there’s plenty of room for spectators – back in Barrow by 10pm. Big Geoff Woods is sponsoring the game for Windermere and Ireland v France will be on the big screen in their clubhouse at 4.50 – what better way to spend a Saturday!!!

Tuesday 21st February

Thursday 5th January

   New years day went down as an event to remember, for those who missed it the Lee White memorial game was watched by record crowds, who were also very generous to the charities the game was being played for. Both St Mary’s Hospice and the Bluebell foundation will benefit from the £3000 that was given over two events, A family night for the benefit of St Mary’s on the 29th and the New Years Day game for both. A big thank you must go to the crowd, the 60 players who all wanted to be part of the event and all of the volunteers  who allowed the event to go smoothly. Hopefully cheque's will be presented to both charities after the home game against Windermere on the 14th January.
