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.

  Message from the El presidente -


    3 weeks away from our first game of the season against Egremont (remember they let us down when they failed to turn up for our last home game last season) we are holding a full training session/signing on day/BBQ on Saturday 18 August commencing 2pm. Training will be followed by food and at 5pm you can watch Chelsea v Arsenal on the big screen. With a bit of effort it could be a very good day. Maybe even pay your subs? We will also have pictures of the new kits on show and also ideas on off field gear for pre and post game!


Friday 10th August
