Barra v Town


Recommended Posts

Well what's people's views on next week's friendly at Barra,  I'm looking forward to seeing how the new lads fit in, I would think Chris will give all the squad a run out to see how things are shaping up, I'm looking forward to it regardless of the score.UTT 🔵⚪

Looking forward to the game ! I think it’s a bit of an unknown how the sides will fair in the first game as there are new signings etc to try and gel and also lots of changes in friendly games but I’m hoping for a good game with no injures, I think Barrow will win but should be a close game. See yous Sunday ✌️

Sure in an interview I seen a few weeks ago town and haven agreed on set number of subs? To make it more of competitive game. So I'm assuming both town and barrow will field everyone they have available which never makes for a good spectacle. But it's what pre season fixtures are all about

What is the situation re friendlies.

Is it reduced admission, are many travelling from Town, believe Scott was hoping to run a coach,but not sure if that is happening.

Split gate but how does that work 60/40 to the  home team because of the overheads. They get all catering revenues so maybe not.

If a good crowd like they got last year it could be a useful boost to town early season.

Prediction being a realist 28 to 20 to Barra, but no injuries and good aquad run out before the Ike game is more important than the score.

Think Town will struggle against Barrow, Cresta as usual got himself a good squad put together for the new season,  Town will struggle this season, defiantly short of a couple of big forwards to take the team forward, another big loss in my view is young Marwood, i liked him a lot, should have had more field time.

Any team news ? Have we any players out with covid ? 

Usually every fit squad member and trialist are used, it's more about getting a feel for the contact side again and looking at new players, the weather and COVID will play a big part in these games and through the next month or two.

27 players on squad list on the website, all apart from Elliot have a sponsor highlighted for 2022. It’s really strange how we have had so little info, last year there was clips and photos from training and interviews with Chris etc.

A message from Gary McKeating our Communications Manager. 

‘You are obviously noticing interviews and photographs from training have been less over the last couple of weeks.

This is due to the rise of omicron and a decision taken to further limit staff and directors at training for a limited time in the interest of safety and to try and ensure training and planning for the season is not impacted by the dramatic rise in infections. The vast majority of the country is being affected and having to reduce activity so please bear with us and your understanding   would be appreciated. I’ll be looking to do an interview with Chris today to give an update and a preview.

Barrow have announced there squad for tomorrow 

Several first team key players missing in that squad, both of the Walne Bros, Sammut, Ritson, Hulme, Wheeler, Mossop etc, presumably due to COVID? Also 3 trialists.
