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.

Saturday 7th July

  At an Emergency Meeting of the Cumbria RFU, held at Penrith last night to discuss the proposed North-West League Restructure. For those who did not know this involved the total withdrawal of Lancashire clubs at L7 leaving all clubs to play within their own CB boundaries. This would have left us with a Cumbria 1 League (old North Lancs/Cumbria) with 8 teams and the L8 Cumbria 2 (old Cumbria 1 ) with 7 Teams.

  Be aware that the Cumbrian teams in L7 and Cumbria RFU are  launching an appeal against this. So what is said below is a plan B in case that fails.

  The meeting decided it would leave the Cumbria 1 League with 8 teams and each to probably play 3 times. The Cumbria 2 League could see the introduction of Creighton, Wigton 2 and Aspatria 2 making that league up to 10 teams (the same as last Year).

  Remember this Plan B would, if implemented, require more work before being finalised.

  Click here to see the teams that could be in our league if Plan B was implimented.
