Sunday 19th November
Yesterday we saw the first run out of a Furness 2nd team. Unfortunately Keswick were too fast and to a man a lot younger than most of our squad. But a big thanks to all who turned out and hopefully with a little more effort we should be able to arrange a few more friendlies as the season progresses. Col Brannon was out with his camera and if you follow THIS LINK it will take you to the Furness face book page where they can all be viewed.
Saturday 11th November
The Cumbria 1 results and updated League tables can be found here. We also have a thank you from “Biff” and the club for the Old Farts here.
Opening and manning the Abbey road gate meant we were able to get the crowds into the ground much quicker and for the first time in years we were able to keep to the timetable.
Another Spectacular Firework Bonanza that was timed at 27 minutes
(No Wonder Chris got a round of applause after it was over)
A BIG thank you to everyone that helped make it a success,
the volunteers who helped before, during and after the event
