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.

Tuesday 6th November

Another brilliant Bonfire Night at FRUFC when a packed crowd witnessed the clubs resident pyromaniac Chris Reid weave his pyrotechnic magic once more in a display that lasted a full 30 minutes and proved once again that it's without doubt the best display in the town. Many thanks to all concerned for their efforts before and on the night, ensuring that everything went off without a hitch. Next up at the club England v New Zealand on the big screen this coming Saturday.

Monday 29th October

   Many thanks to all those who came along on Saturday and supported the Old Fart's lunch. Thanks in particular to Dave Webb who introduced us to his sausage - and what a fine specimen it was too. So much so that our resident sausage master Les While declared himself impressed by its flavour if not by its dimensions! Roy Cullen is hoping to arrange another OF's lunch in the new year which might be more problematical than it sounds given the dearth of home fixtures after the Xmas break.

Monday 3rd September

   Here we are yet again the start of the Rugby Season and time to get your Annual Subscriptions paid. If you deal in cash please catch myself or Corne at the weekend, if you want the simplicity of paying with your plastic card click here to go to the membership page and click the Subscription that you are paying. But once again remember for the Ability to apply for RFU International tickets you MUST be a FULL member of the club.
