Thursday 27th February
The squad for the away game at Creighton this weekend can be found here.
Wednesday 26th February
No game for the second team this weekend but the first team should hopefully spring back into action away at Creighton., That is all of Febuary missed because of the weather. The 25th January being the last game the firsts were on the field.
A game to keep an eye on this week is the one between Silloth and Egremont. Should we be cheering for Silloth to win, but without the bonus point ?
The new date for our Cup match against Egremont at Millom has been set for the 3rd May, of course that game is only fixed providing we have no more problems with postponed fixtures.
Tonight we have the County Consultations meeting at Kendal where the Southern part of Cumbria can put their views forward as to how this years Cumbria leagues faired and how we should go forward to next season. I will report back any significant changes here later this week.
Thursday 20th February

Saturday 15th February
Things get no better -
Friday 14th February
Cancel yesterday info on playing at Roose. BOTH GAMES ARE NOW OFF.
It would be nice to see every one up at the club during the afternoon for a bit of team bonding, drinking and watching whatever is worthwhile on SKY. Maybe a reverse rain dance might help so we can stop this wet stuff that keeps coming from the heavens.
Thursday 13th February
Our pitch has been checked, and is still not playable at present, the weather forecast for tomorrow will not help either.
Roose pioneers have offered us their pitches. The first team will be at the Redwaters pitch whilst the “A” team will play at the Holbeck roundabout field (By Roose Cons) . Both teams will be fed at Redwaters after their matches.
The clubhouse will be open but if you want to watch the lads playing you will have to travel the short distance to the relevant ground.
Monday 10th February
You may not be aware but we are engaged with the RFU in trying to gain a grant of upwards of £10,000 to help improve the Club's Social Spaces incorporating the main clubroom, bar and back bar including furniture, decoration, insulation, lighting and heating
We are applying for a Grant from the RFU of £10,000 towards improving our Social Spaces. To help with the grant application there is a small survey the RFU would like all members, parents, children to undertake to give us and them a better idea of how people view the club. The survey will take less than a minute to complete and the link is below.

Sunday 9th February
A match report from another up and coming reporter Mark Hall gives us an insight of the seconds game at Workington -
Sunday 2nd February
Well can anyone argue, one of the best night at Furness for a long while. Furness has got talent, the “F” factor you name it. A big thanks must go to John Mallinson (Organiser) and Chris Reid who put a lot of work into making the club look the part for the event. Paul the DJ who kept the levels at a reasonable level for us oldies, the bar staff who kept all our glasses full and of course everyone who got on the stage and did their bit. Not forgetting “Becca” Reid who as official choreographer must have been worn out by the end of the night. I have got to mention the winner on the night Kate Bush aka Judith Reid. But as far as the audience was concerned they were all winners.
Saturday 1st February
After a pitch inspection we are once again disappointed having to call the Egremont game off but as you can see it’s not good and the forecast “More Rain to Come”. We are not the only ones to be hit with the weather the other games in Cumbria 1 due to be played today: -

Don't forget after the game is the start of the Six nations competition in the clubhouse followed by “Furness has got talent”. I believe there are just a few tickets left, so to avoid disappointment contact John Mallinson now.
