  1. We now have Tee Ritson, Shane Toal, Luke Cresswell, Dan Toal, Ryan Shaw, Jarrad Stack, Jake Carter, Ben Evans and Carl Forster
  2. Sammut is flying back today, he is available
  3. Got to disagree strongly with any resting of players - it won't be happening. This is our cup final this weekend. It is only a few weeks since we matched Huddersfield in the Challenge cup. Admittedly we are big underdogs but that will make victory even sweeter should the slim chance occur No-one will remember in 10 years if we finish 6th, 7th , 8th , 9th or 10th But making a major cup final (for lower league teams) will be part of the club's history
  4. £5 free food/drink vouchers for entry before 1pm Local under 9s and 10s curtain raiser from Noon Turnstiles and ground bars open from 11.45am
  5. Jarrod Sammut is fine and available. Everything last week was precautionary and he was released Sunday evening. We have lost Jack Croft but Sam Eseh remains with us and we are working on another loan deal. When the players are recalled after a short period there is nothing we can do about it, we are trying to negotiate longer loan terms but the Super League clubs call the tune. Ryan Shaw has trained fully this week and is back in contention to fill the space left by Jack Croft Dan Toal has had a bleed drained on his thigh and shouldn't be too far away Ryan Johnston has had a scan on a niggling groin injury and we are waiting for the results before we can fully assess Ellis Gillam has a calf injury and is a serious doubt for this week but Danny Langtree should be fine Apart from that we are reasonably healthy. We did a video with our physio last week with an injury update and it isn't a policy to keep the fans in the dark. If we had a sports journalist in the area it might help but the NWEM just seem to copy what we put out ourselves on social media.

The all-Cumbria clash will take place on Sunday March 13 with a 1pm kick-off. The prize is a place in the Challenge Cup sixth round and potential Super League opponents. It also means progression in the 1895 Cup, meaning the winning side could be just one game away from a place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in May.

  8. There is street parking with no restrictions all around the stadium if you head for the main Duke Street entrance. You should be able to park a coach in Duke Street but if not then I suggest the driver drops the supporters at the ground and then use the car park behind the Town Hall. You can see the Town Hall from the ground and is free on a Sunday. Don't park in the retail park on the other side of the ground as it is possible you will get a parking ticket Inside the ground we have a heated marquee bar and a Raiders Bar. Both are open from 1pm and there is a £5 voucher for food or drink for entry before 2pm. Tickets are available online priced £12 adults and £10 concessions but these rise to £17 and £12 when paying at the turnstile.
  9. You can pay on the gate with cash (or card at the main entrance) and there is a free £5 voucher for all paying customers to spend on food or drink for those entering before 2pm. Adults £12, Concessions £10 and children free
  10. Food and drink is available inside and there will be a free £5 voucher for all paying fans who enter before 2pm
  11. Barrow Raiders Ladies Reserves will be entering a league below the Championship. They need to get the application in before 14th January but the RFL have given the green light to match the team with a league of their ability.
  12. Lots of good signings happening at Barrow Raiders under Grand Final winning coach Amanda Wilkinson. Packed with Cumbrian talent. Over 50 girls competing for a Super League place with a reserves side about to be formed and the possibility to dual reg between each other as long as COVID doesn't separate the Elite and community game
  13. The club have re-bought the old Josephines building and site and with it the covenant that restricted the sale of alcohol in the ground. The payments for the purchase will be made monthly over a 5 year period, hence the reason for the charge being put on the club to help protect against defaulting on the payments. The board plan to have a meeting in the New Year with some blue sky thinking around what we want to do with the site and the exploration of grant availability to fund it. I don't expect any major changes in 2022 as we look to strengthen the financial situation at the club with 2021 having being a year of significant outlay.
  14. I might be biased but I'm pretty excited about the squad we have put together: Luke Cresswell Tee Ritson Shane Toal Ryan Shaw Hakim Miloudi Declan Hulme Gary Wheeler Jake Carter Jamie Dallimore Ryan Johnston Anton Iaria Carl Forster Adam Walne Connor Terrill Sam Brooks Nathan Mossop Josh Wood Jarrad Stack Danny Langtree Ellis Gillam Bradd Crellin Tom Hopkins Charlie Emslie Dan Toal Danny Morrow Jordan Walne There's also a few dual registration amateurs and a couple of trialists joining the training sessions
  15. First home fixture Saturday 13th November 3pm with the remaining fixtures Sunday 14th November 3pm
  16. Willie Minoga, Wartovo Puara and Stargroth Amean at Barrow
  17. Team A 9/18 50% Team B 12/12 would be 100% but the minimum number of games is 13 so they become 12/13 or 92% It wouldn't be fair on Team B not to make the play-offs just because they hadn't played the minimum number of games How I have described is how it works
  18. Teams can still compete in the play-offs if they don't meet the minimum number of games but they are assumed to have lost the games to make up the number. Taking an extreme example if one team was W9 L9, whilst another was W12 L0 the second team would still finish above the first team even though they hadn't played the minimum number of games
  19. I know this sounds bizarre but there is no official capacity of Craven Park, Barrow. The Ground Safety Certificate only gives a capacity for the regulated stands which is the main grandstand and Clive Street Terrace. For COVID in the grandstand we assumed bubbles of an average of 4 people and then had a seat gap and missed whole rows. In reality we could have a school with 30 pupils in a bubble (which we do) so we could go above that capacity. Similarly for the terracing we had to calculate the surface area and made the assumption that every single person was social distancing from every other and got a total COVID capacity of 2900. However, the bookings could well come in bubbles of much bigger size which would allow us to have a bigger attendance. It is a judgement call from the ground safety officer. Bearing in mind in the dim and distant past the very same terracing has housed 21,000 we are pretty confident that we can socially distance the absolute maximum from the government of 4000.
  20. I know this sounds bizarre but there isn't an official capacity. The council only give a capacity for the regulated stands, which is the main grandstand and the Clive Street terrace. The open terracing capacity is a judgement call between the chairman, H&S Director and Ground Safety Officer. In COVID times we had to do some calculations on social distancing and we used the surface area of the terracing giving social distance between every other fan. This calculation has given us around 2,600. However, in reality, most people come in groups of at least two people so I am tempted to go back to the council with some new calculations as I have a (pleasing) concern that we will beat that number for the Workington fixture. I could probably quite easily argue for the 4,000 which is the maximum allowed for a ground our size. I notice Castleford have been getting 4000 crowds and it is a very similar ground
  21. 1375 paid out of 1915, the rest were free tickets to children, fans turning up before 1pm or given out in sponsors deals Secondary spend was through the roof, hence the repeat of the offers versus Rochdale
  22. Barrow's council have been really supportive with COVID virtually disappeared in Cumbria. They allowed us a capacity around 3,000 that allowed us to fully market the game and the fans came in numbers with some fantastic feedback. To have close to 2,000 in the ground was a very good attendance for Barrow and an excellent one for League One. There didn't appear to be any nervousness with regards to COVID.
  23. Barrow Raiders delighted to form Barrow Raiders Ladies – Barrow Raiders (barrowrlfc.com) Another great step forward for Barrow Raiders
