  1. I wouldn't be surprised if one or two who missed last week are available this week. The two new signings will also make a huge difference, psychologically at least. I'm now looking forward to the possibility of us, at some point this season, naming a squad with three sets of brothers in. That might be a first for us!
  2. We were talking about this on Sunday, sunning ourselves at the Duke Street end. The Hindpool end would look good with a small shelter, maybe a third of the width it was and with the new food outlet behind.
  3. It'll be great after so long and I can't wait. I just hope that big screen they've put up at the Hindpool Road end is robust enough for rugby balls smacking into it.
  4. I'm wondering whether or not 'European Super League' and/or 'Super League' are registered trade marks of Sky TV and the RFL? Could be interesting. Get the greedy buggers to shove a couple of billion in rugby league's direction for nicking the name!

    It varies depending on where you look but the club's own website should be the most up to date (you'd think so anyway!)

    We'd be "small stadium". According to Google, the club website says our capacity is 6000, so I'd reckon on our maximum being 3000 going by the criteria above (small stadiums: maximum capacity of 4000 or half full, whichever is lower). We should be fine unless everyone turns up for that first game back!

    Keith Nutter

    Terrible news. Barrow Raiders through and through and a fantastic bloke as well. We all owe the club's very survival to people like Keith - and on more than one occasion, in his case. My sincere condolences to his family.
  8. I've found him, in the ever excellent "Keeping the Dream Alive" - Dave Huitson, Keith Nutter and Steve Andrews' imperious Who's Who of every player who played for Barrow up to 2008. I've taken photos of the info therein, but I can't upload the images for some reason. I could email them to you if you like, but maybe Steve Andrews might have better source material?
  9. The lone voice that shouts "Gerrem on side!!!" every tackle "He's been doing it all the game!!" "FORWARD!!" The boring "GERRIN IN TO 'EM" chant
  10. ...or, alternatively, "strutting round the field like a little turkey cock"
  11. He turned up at Barrow a couple of years back. Barring one spectacular try that showed what he could do, 'turning up' was about all he did.
  12. I knew I'd miss somewhere obvious! LEIGH - Hilton Park, LSV Honourable mention for the hot pot in Our House
