As you are all aware Furness had no games this weekend., But Egremont played in
Cumbria 1 and leapfrogged over us by taken the full 5 points from Kendal 2nds. There
was a full set of games in Cumbria 2, but of course our game against Bennies was
postponed and apparently to be played later in the season, if there are any vacant
weeks of course. Both sets of league tables have now been updated
Friday 15th November
Some good news for our young first team winger Alex Brown, he has been selected

Cumbria of course.

Another bonfire night over and a brilliant night for Furness Rugby. I can’t pick
out anyone or any group in particular but a GREAT BIG THANK YOU to ALL Players, Committee,
Friends, Family, Wives, Girlfriends, Lads and Lasses who gave up their own time to
help the club produce a great and safe bonfire night for another year.
Sunday 3rd November
The Day of the Dead event appears to have gone down well last night, I found photos
of these two revelers and I must admit it took me a while to guess who they were.
Friday 25th October
I have just been updated on our Cup Final against Egremont. The date has now been
changed to the 29th March and it will be held at Millom.
Wednesday 25th September
If you have followed the news here you will all know that the Cumbria 2 is desperate
for referees, and now individual Clubs have to put forward names of people in their
club who are willing to act as referee when a fully trained one is not available.
We have a few people interested at the Club, but to help we are attempting to get
an ELRA (Entry Level Referee Assoc course) held at the club. This would go a long
way to give confidence to people who haven't refereed before. So if you fancy taking
up the whistle, even if it may only be once or twice a season give Gaz a ring now.
Tuesday 24th September
The 200 Club Draw was held after the committee meeting last night , the lucky winners
can be found here. I will get the cheque's to the clubhouse this week and winners
names with * alongside will have them by post.
Thursday 22nd August
Attention all POOL players. Our pool team play in a league every Wednesday evening,
they would appreciate an influx of new blood into the side. If you are interested
let Les hall know or turn up at the next home game, They normally start at 8 O’clock.
It’s official I can now release a secret we have been holding until today. Furness
have secured £41,216 of Olympic legacy funding from Sport England's Inspired Facilities
fund. This is to replace our dilapidated showering area, remove what’s left of the
tiles and replace the shower heads and controllers. We are also replacing the boiler,
which is older than most of the players, with a state of the art eco friendly system.
The clubhouse roof is also being sorted after the damage caused by the lead thieves
last year. This will of course not happen instantly and we will keep you updated
as to when we will start the work.
