  I have some of Col Brannon’s photos for the game against Egremont here. There are more on Facebook for those that have access.

Saturday 19th April

  Furness 2nds (1st and 2nds Mixed really) had a run out in the sunshine today. Egremont arrived with the bare minimum of players , but reserves were drawn on and the game started with a full 15 aside and both with front rows. At 59 - 0 to Furness at half time Gaz shuffled the players around to make a better game of it and as you can see the final score was about 75 - 30. The BBQ was fired up and the food disappeared rather rapidly, so it must have been OK. Once again we have to thank Egremont for turning up and hope they didn’t go away disheartened after such a light hearted game with a splattering of some good rugby in places. The Cumbria 2 results and updated League tables can be found here.

Sunday 13th April

Saturday 12th April

  With the 7 - 37 win at Windermere, that confirms Furness will be promoted to the Cumbria / North Lancs league as Cumbria 1 League Champions. Unfortunately Penrith 3rds turned the tables on the Furness 2nd team by beaten them by virtually the same score as their 2nds lost by last  week.

        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 a bungalow down a narrow driveway. This is the entrance to The Strawberry Grounds.

  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.
