Gutsy Barrow AFC roll their sleeves up to see off Luton

BATTLING Barrow AFC defied the odds by overcoming their defensive frailties and securing a morale-boosting 1-0 win over Conference high-rollers Luton Town.

Have your say

Start moaning don't have a football team what a joke 8-1 they are a disgrace.

All these comments of fans not turning up are pathetic.
I managed to drag 2 mates along to the Luton game who had not been since wembley a couple of seasons back.
They loved it, they couldn't understand how a team that played aswel as afc did that night were at the bottom.
THEN, I got 4of us to go to Mansfield by car yesterday, that's when we all realised why were at the bottom. We have no defence at all.
It's safe to say us 4 will not be returning to holler street as long as the muppets running the show are still in charge. Total disgrace.

Average attendances are dire accross the leauge. There are 12 teams with a better average than Barrow, ours is 13th. Do the rest of the teams with lower averages not deserve a team either?? The vective towards glory hunters is pathgetic. Floating fans of all standards come and go. Their support should be welcome when it's there, not attacked before it ever returns!

Well said tomo, half the support that traveled to Middlesborough, Sunderland and Wembley would help comming through the Holker street turnstiles in the clubs desperate hour of need. Glory hunters you are needed to turn up.

Tomo, i can count on one hand when the team have gave it there all. Just because the Bluebirds decided to play v the big guns dont mean the fans should of turned out in a bumper crowd.

Its a lottery when the players turn up, just like the fans!

the people of furness should hang there heads in shame a crowd of less than 1200 against a top team like luton is a disgrace and at least 100 of the attendance were from luton you dont deserve a football team and dont start moaning when you dont have one !
