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 22nd August

  After Saturdays Pre-Season against Millom everyone as usual adjourned to the bar where most tried to drink their own weight in beer. However the usual raffle was held and everyone was informed instead of the proceeds going to the club the proceed were to be donated to Graham “smudger” Smith who was doing a sponsored walk along the Lancaster canal in aid of the NW Ambulance. So in total after add-ons' and extras, ourselves and Millom will be donating approximately £160 to Graham who will add it to his sponsorship and hand it over to the NW Air Ambulance in the near future..

Wednesday 16th August

   We have our second Pre-Season friendly this Saturday when Millom will be at the Strawberry Ground for a 2 o'clock KO and playing probably 4 X 20 minutes sessions. Another great chance to support the lads, and for those who haven't already, to pay their Annual Subs.

  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.
