And Paul Hughes. And Mark Knapper.

Two others that always seemed to have stormers against the auld enemy.

Forgot about that!! I remember the 1st match of the season when we'd hardly got a pack. Cas were looking comfy til Foxy started putting newy n smalesy into gaps to come back n win at the death.
Chris Bibb looked great that day.
Well that's how I remembered it. Could be all cobblers!!!
Go on then mark. Away to cas 1st game of the season.
Year and team please.......

Thought we were short of backs too, with Trevor Clark in the centres and Paul Hughes' 1st game as a winger.

Probably old age but my memory's convinced that they were down to 11 men by the end as well?

Robin - the match was on 29 October, 1989 (2,137 crowd). The return match at Barrow on 21 January 1990 saw Rovers win easily 46-0 (1,289 crowd).

Incidentally, the win at Fev was Barrow's only victory in an 18 month period. I missed the match at Fev so watched non-stop defeats for the whole 18 months! Barrow defeated Whitehaven at Craven Park in April 1989 and I saw that match. The next time I witnessed a Barrow win a competitive match was a victory over Dewsbury at Craven Park in October 1990 - a period of almost 18 months!

What is even dafter is that after a run of nothing but defeats like that Barrow was still pulling in crowds circa 1,300 in the old Division Two (about our average last year in Championship 1).
