Saturday 8th November

   No prizes trying to guess who the characters are in this photo.

This Day of the Dead event organized by Mally went down a storm after our cup win against Wigton. But we have now put out an APB for a missing “Pinata” -  A papier mache donkey (for those not knowing what a pinata is) with brightly coloured paper attached to the body and a tail to match Which was filled with goodies and ready for the forthcoming games. Similar to the picture shown.

Most of us have our suspicions but we will keep them to ourselves. If anyone has the missing donkey feel free to return it to the Strawberry Grounds any Saturday just before KO time.

 A few more pictures from the night can be found here.

   Once again the weather was good for us and the crowds who turned up to watch our Annual Fireworks party.

Saturday 18th October

    After struggling all week to try and get a second team together to cover the shortages we actually ended up with 22 players today, unfortunately 20 of them were backs. We actually helped Kirkby out by loaning them a few subs, but with no forwards the game was played uncontested. Still the game was played and unfortunately the bigger Kirkby squad won.

Sunday 21st September

   The 200 Club Draw was held in the clubhouse today. Check here to see the winners. Cheques will be available in the clubhouse shortly

Tuesday 22nd July

  For those who have been up to the club in the past few days, would have noticed that there is now a new drainage trench that runs from the Dugout on the centre line down to clubhouse corner, then across the pitch behind the dead ball line. Hopefully this will prevent the build up of water that we had in the clubhouse corner last season. Further work is to be done on the clubhouse guttering and drainage to further assist the work. Big thanks to Corne, Gaz, Mike Lamb and any other helpers for all of the effort. Plus Simon Luscombe for the equipment and pipes, then there’s Stainton Quarry for the gravel at that very special price.

** Increase in Annual Subscriptions **

  At the AGM held in the Clubhouse on the 4th July it was unanimously agreed by the member present that the Annual Subscriptions would be increased. (They had been at their present levels for 10+ years). The new rates are as follows:-

        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.
