    Yes I do Pemby, it was bloody freezing! If I remember rightly it was Steve Norton's last game in charge before Paul Kavanagh took over.

    Talking of wins at Humberside, what do you remember of the amazing 1-0 at Hull KR in 1994 Phil?

    We actually scored 3 drop goals in that semi final v Warrington in 83. There was one each for Dave Cairns, Ian Ball and Mossy. Even though I was at the game (one of the very few Barrow fans who were as it was mid week and we were expected to get smashed!) I cant remember who got the third one. I do remember the score wasnt 18-18 at the time it went over though as Barrow had something like a 19-10 or so lead and the Wires came roaring back late on. Dave Elliott who was standing in for the injured Steve Tickle made two amazing, try saving tackles on John Fieldhouse and Bob Eccles in the dying minutes to seal the win. I do remember Barrow playing at Hull in the Regal Trophy in 94, I think the score was something like 26-14 to Hull which was a very creditable result at the time.

    As a keen programme collector I was wondering if it was possible to buy a match programme directly from the club for the forthcoming Wolfpack v Barrow Raiders game? In the game earlier in the season a friend who attended the game kindly brought one back for me but unfortunately he is not attending the game this time. If the club are unlikely to offer this service would one of your fans be willing to kindly obtain one and post it to me? I would of course be happy to pay all costs involved. All the best, Steve.

    Just out of interest Phil, I think you will have played at Hull but did you ever play at the other three grounds (Headingley, Knowsley Road or Odsal)?

    Well done KeithB, bang on!

    Good effort Morty, one team correct but not in the right order Im afraid. Youre right Keith, so heres a few clues. Team A are a Lancashire club who have moved to a new ground in recent seasons. We did manage a draw there in a cup game in the 80s too. Team B are a Yorks club who are still at the same ground as when we last won there. Plenty of people who read this forum will have visited this ground in the last 12 months. Team C had their lowest ever crowd, just 324, when we won there in 1963 by 0-29. Team D have also fairly recently switched grounds. Our last win there came in controversial fashion in an RL Cup tie when we won 6-5. Hope that helps!

    Whilst checking a query for a fan earlier this week, I was looking at our club records and noticed there are 4 current professional clubs that we have not beaten at their grounds for a very long time indeed. Purely for a bit of fun see if you can name the following four clubs in question. There are no tricks here, each one of these clubs has been visited at least 10 times (in some cases many more than that) since we last gained a victory there. League and Cup games only (friendlies, charity games, testimonial games etc not included). A The last time we beat this club away was incredibly March 1946. B We have not beaten this club away since November 1956. C Not a single away win against this club since November 1963. D A dozen fruitless trips to this clubs ground since our last win in March 1967. Remember, all four clubs are current professional clubs and Barrow have played them away many, many times since our last victory there. Also, Im pleased to say, we have beaten all 4 at home since we last beat them away!!

    I dont remember them Mike, Ive just read about them haha. Daveh, if you didnt already know, is one of the authors of that interesting little booklet "Keeping the Dream Alive" so should be believed implicitly at all times and without exception!!!!His knowledge of the clubs history pre 1930 is far better than mine. The research he has done over the years is little short of amazing. One day he may share his findings with us................
