WINNING WAYS: The Barrow Boys’ district representative soccer team from 1973 which went on to win the Cumbria Cup SUBMITTED

County tournaments were held in a wide range of sports, often contested at Bitts Park, next to Carlisle Castle.

Even if your team got hammered, you generally went home with a free district t-shirt as a souvenir.
