 It was not team of the year, it was Club of the year and it is an Award for off field  achievements made in areas such their Academy squad, Ladies team, work in the community community,  money raising other events.

Oh ffs sorry Johnny, that's me put in my place. You missed out supplying players to other teams so you can have a party too.

I'm sure I didn't give the others their correct titles either. Maybe you could correct me on those?

Congratulations to Barrow on there club of the year award  .with running a successful ladies team ,and there off field dynamism which led to INCREASED  match day attendances. As the report says on the Ourleague app .  Pity We couldn't have had increased attendances  due to COVID . When we played at Barrow it was like it didn't exist .eating on the terracing walking round the ground with a pint in your hand, over 3000 spectators.   Mind it was nice to get back to normality for a few hours . But we were restricted  to a few hundred supporters ,couldn't eat or drink on the terracing .If you wanted a drink you had to sit in a designated  area and it was brought to you by waiter service . Area's were in zone's  that you couldn't walk in . So it made me laugh just reading that it was mentioned about increased attendances  in such difficult times . What a joke !

To be clear before Johnny has another meltdown.  I have no axe to grind with barrow winning team of the year & pleased they have been promoted. 

I am shocked Chris & Brad didn't win an award though. Obviously my view is through tinted glasses and it doesn't necessarily mean that Anthony Murray & the young lad didn't have good seasons. But I thought Brad would be nailed on for young player of they year, the other kid must have been phenomenal.

I had no expectation at the beginning of the season with so many young inexperienced lads coming into the team, but to almost win the league and might still be promoted, I struggle to see what more Chris could have done. There are obviously different views out there from the other coaches but I think NW finished roughly within a couple of places where I expected, did they punch that much above their weight? I'm not taking anything away from Murray, and obviously Chris can do no wrong for us, but that's a head scratcher for me.

Nevermind the best award would be promotion. UTT

With no restrictions next year due to covid what do you think town should be aiming for as an a average attendance (recognising that this could be dependant on what league they are in)?

It was not a meltdown at all, it was a correction, there is a huge difference between club of the year and team of the year. Actually if there were a team of the year then Workington would probably the favourites to win it due too smaller budget and a rebuild with local or very young travelling players who overacheived expectation and almost took the title. I hope you do actually go all of the way next weekend and you Cumbrians have all three Clubs in the Championship. That would be the best outcome to 2021.

Thanks Johnny, I stand corrected. Just don't be flashing your fat wallet at our best players 😉

Hard to say, I don't think it matters which league we are in, some fans just want to watch a winning team. I would like to see some of the average attendances of most of the championship compared to Barrow and ourselves. Probably only Fev, Widnes, Bradford and Halifax getting more. 🤔 Personally I just want to watch a better level of RL with us competing in most games.
