On another forum there is a thread about the numbers of games that have been played in a short time years ago.

Somewhere I have a programme for the 1955/1956 season which I cannot find. On it, the fixture lists shows the number of games that had to be crammed in for Barrow to complete the season. It was insane, especially with players being part time.

Does anyone on here have a list of those fixtures?

I’m sure the players would love it as there’s loads of wages to be made in a short space of time and the training will be very low intensity in between!??
