Sunday 14th December

   I now have Chris Reid’s report of yesterdays game at Aspatria here.

Saturday 13th December

   The North Lancs / Cumbria results and league tables are here. Its looking like the weather may have claimed ALL of the Cumbria 2 league matches, ours at Kirby, HP at Penrith and Amblesides home game against Keswick.

Wednesday10th December

  Our Cup Semi-Final game against Penrith 1sts has been re-arranged to 14th February. Remember any further postponements because of weather could see this being changed again. Apparently Millom 2 have had a reprieve in the Cumbria 2 league and will commence playing again on the 10th January after the Xmas break. The firs team squad to play Aspatria Saturday can be found here.

Sunday 7th December

   You can find a brief match report from John Mallinson here. The North Lancs / Cumbria Results and league tables are here. The Cumbria 2 results and league tables are here. There are a few of Col Brannons photos here. Millom cried off for the fourth time, are they about to be excluded from the league? Looks like a dose of West Cumbrian Flu didn’t help our first team at all when late cry offs meant digging deep into our reserves to find people willing to travel and play. The loss of players didn’t seem to effect the seconds who appeared to have cruised to an easy win.

Sunday 30th November

  I have Ian McAllisters view of yesterdays derby game here. Along with a few of Col Brannon’s photos.The North Lancs / Cumbria results and league tables can be found here.

Tuesday 11th November

  The draw for the next round (Semi-Final) of the Cumbria Cup took place tonight and we have drawn Penrith 1st at Home. The date of the game has now been confirmed as Saturday 24th January, this date could change if we have any postponed league matches prior to that date.

Saturday 8th November

This Day of the Dead event organized by Mally went down a storm after our cup win against Wigton. But we have now put out an APB for a missing “Pinata” -  A papier mache donkey (for those not knowing what a pinata is) with brightly coloured paper attached to the body and a tail to match Which was filled with goodies and ready for the forthcoming games.

Most of us have our suspicions but we will keep them to ourselves. If anyone has the missing donkey feel free to return it to the Strawberry Grounds any Saturday just before KO time.

 A few more pictures from the night can be found here.

Thursday 6th November

   Once again the weather was good for us and the crowds who turned up to watch our Annual Fireworks party. A big thanks to Chris our own pyrotechnics experts, the bar staff, and the volunteers who manned the Bottle Bar, Sweet Stall, Kitchen and entrance gates, plus all the players and members who donned  the Hi-Vis jackets and assisted in keeping everyone safe.

        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.
