    Where will we finish?

    I agree that the Development Plan is quite good and well laid out. I've only had a quick look but two points are worth mentioning. First of all there is no such thing as an Associate Director. A person can only be a director if he is registered as such with Companies House. Secondly in the Club's Articles it states that no director shall receive any remuneration from the Company. I'll be interested to read any other comments on my points and also more importantly on the Development Plan.

    Club Chaplain

    It's becoming quite common for pro RL clubs to have Chaplains for pastoral care mainly of players. I didn't say a lot in my previous post but I know of a few players who might have found his ministries useful.

    Pre Season Matches

    My children and grand children have tried to explain Twitter to me but I can't understand it. Just about got the hang of FB. I'm still in the last century. I like the banter on this stream.

    Club Chaplain

    I understand your view and I might be wrong but I think the basic idea is if anybody connected with the Club, male or female, has something private or confidential they want to talk about other than close friends or family he is the man. No idea whether that's the sole purpose and I don't know what Father Jim did last time.

    Our Chairman must be a Luddite, NWDuk because he keeps us up to date on here. LOL I'm registered on Face Book mainly for Rugby League and my wife keeps me up to date on what the family are getting up to. I've been a member of this Forum a lot longer than Face Book but I wish more people would use it.

    Club Chaplain

    Supporters may remember that a few years ago we had Father Jim as Chaplain of our Club and after sometime he moved to Carlisle. He was a very popular figure around the Club but was never replaced. I now see in the Club Website that the new Vicar of St Marks has asked to be the Club Chaplain. He played semi-pro Rugby League for various teams including Salford,Rochdale & Oldham. There is a very interesting article on the WEb site which is worth reading.

    SQUAD FOR 2019

    Oh dear Phil I've been having trouble with this Laptop for ages. LOL I think the figure should be 8 or even 7.

    SQUAD FOR 2019

    I think he was our second try scorer with 80 trys in 2018. Shane Toal scored 12 but missed the last 11 games.

    john mantle

    I remember John Mantle well. He was signed from Leigh on 27/12/1978 and went to Keighley on 17/12/1979. Barrow was one of 7 clubs he played for. i hope Steve Andrews & Keith Nutter mind me pinching this info from 'Keeping the Dream Alive' I'm surprised that there is no comment on this Forum following the passing of Alan Winward. RIP Alan.

    Ground share

    There are some very interesting messages about the recent happenings at Holker Street. It's worth scanning through the Barrow Football Forum. Maybe you've already done it tec.
