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.......

Barrow's only win was at por! 22-29 or something like that. Genuinely thought it was earlier!

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

Correct.

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).

89/90.

We didn't win again in the league until about Christmas!

Definitely. I remember listening to it on hospital wireless. :angry:
