Furness Rugby Union Football Club Founded 1902 This site was updated on  17 May 2015 @   19:46

        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.

Saturday 21st March

Sunday 15th March

    You can fine Ian’s full report on yesterdays Cup match here, along with Col Brannon’s photos. The 200 club draw was held in the Club House this afternoon Click here to see if you are one of the winners.

Saturday 14th February

        The Central Heating improvements in the Clubhouse are now there to be seen, but we as a club would have struggled to meet the total cost of such a project, so we must thank the RFU “Ground Match” scheme who covered just under 50% of the cost. But big thanks must go to some local donators:- We have The Armstrong Foundation, Scurrah Nassau Group and The Rotary Club of Furness who have all donated amounts which significantly helped in reducing Furness’s costs towards the project.  Darren and Amanda of The Ship Inn at Roose also donated their 2nd prize win in last nights quiz to us, every little helps.

   Then there was Colin Blackburn  of “CBS Gas Services” who has done a brilliant job in fitting and hiding as much of the refurbishments as possible.

I’ve just purchased my Home insurance (Building & Contents) through easyfundraising, It cost me £139 from Aviva for the year PLUS Furness gets a £30 donation. How easy is that. Try it for anything online, costs nothing to help the club and could save you money.  Just Click here to join easyfundraising and start helping us
