As many are aware we have had problems with dog walkers allowing their dogs to foul the pitches and also youngsters causing damage within the grounds. Gates do not seem to stop any of them so John and Chris have put the following report in the NW Email. Click here to read it.
The start of the season is now in sight and the team travel to Millom on Saturday 31st August for a warm up against Millom. The first league game is on the 7th September at home against Hawcoat Park.
It is with great sadness that the club has to announce that James Terence Walmsley (known to us all as Terry) died peacefully on Monday 8th July aged 79. Terry was a regular fixture on the Old Farts bench on Saturday afternoons, which won’t seem quite the same without him. A popular figure with both young and old, he will be missed. RIP old friend.
Terry's family has advised that the funeral will take place at Barrow Crematorium at 11.30 on Friday 19th July and afterwards at Furness Rugby Club. All are invited.

At an SGM held at Penrith last night we were informed “that at present” we were heading for a 14 team Level 8 Cumbria 1 league. This is all dependant on Cheshire, Lancashire and NE leagues agreeing with what has been noted. If this does not pass then we could be back to square 1. The final meeting between interested parties should be on the 23rd May, still giving time for fixtures to be sorted. The 14 team Cumbria 1 league is looking like this:-
