AFC suffer biggest home defeat of season

Have your say

This just goes to prove that Barrow is a rugby town once and for all.

rugger fan i have not denied that this is a rugger town, you spouted off about afc the one thing left to say is non of afc chairmen have disgraced the club by breaking the rules & getting the club relegated, wich has tarnished the raiders name , like i said non of afc chairmen passed & present have done that/

As Henry Ford said – History is Bunk – in their much talked about hey day Barrow RLFC didn’t do much. Today Barrow AFC are full time professionals playing the world’s greatest game in a nationwide league. Unfortunately for the town, Barrow RLFC are playing a parochial sub-division of rugby at local/amateur level with blinkered people like rugger fan cheering them heartily to even greater depths.

You might as well be though mate. I see the North Lancs league beckoning for you lot. You cannot survive on the gates you are getting. BARROW IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE A RUGBY TOWN. BRLFC steeped in more history than Barrow AFC can only dream of. 2 pops at premier league opposition and a mickey mouse cup in recent years and you think you are something. Your havin a laugh mate !

for all you raiders fans get a grip & stay in your playpens, afc have been the most succesful team in barrow for 26 years when was the last time you lot were at wembley, how many league titles have you got cup wins etc, oh one more thing we hav`nt been relegated for years & we are not playing in the bottom end league.

Hello again Mr T Krul, yes I am for real and so is the new stadium, do not get concept drawings mixed up with detailed designs as they are a world apart. I know someone actively involved in the redevelopment project from the partner organisation and it is definitely a goer. The development will be a great asset for the town generally and if Barrow RL want to use the facilities they will be made welcome. However it won’t come cheap as we need all premium income streams available to fund our bid for the football league.

Is Old John for real?, i doubt it. There will be no new stadium, the drawings in the mail looked like they were done by my daughter and she is 2. Who on earth is going to invest hundreds of thousands in this lot, Whats the point in having any more than 1200 seats, and thats pushing it to fill those. Laughing stock.

Poor show admittedly, the players won’t turn up and neither will the crowds as the season peters out. But don’t forget we are usually in the relegation dog fight at this time of the year so we are in unchartered territory such has been the progress and success of the season as a whole. The end is not nigh Bob, but the new stadium is with the big announcement to be made in May.

Totally shocking not good enough I actually walked out with 10 mins to go!!
I can echo so many other comments on here, as someone who has been to 80% of home games and a few away this season im so disappointed in the way we played! 4-5-1 at home what’s going on? When we are safe from the drop for once with the chance to get it down and play? So why negative. We had no heart no passion on desire no idea!! Just because were safe we think players think they can just turn up and pick up the money? Well more performances like this then if you’re not going to turn up on a Saturday then why should we turn up and pay £14+ to watch? Get them sorted out Dave and the board or risk watching the gates drop lower?
