Barrow Raiders will be using an upcoming match to honour all of their former players.

The rugby club announced on Tuesday, May 7 that their double header against Featherstone Rovers on Sunday, May 26 will act as their 'heritage fixture'.

With this, every single ex-player, coach and director will be invited to the Northern Competitions Stadium to attend the game for free.

A spokesperson from the club said: "The free entry offer extends to literally everyone who has pulled on a Barrow shirt - first team, A-team, colts, academy, Furness Raiders, Ladies and LD players are all invited.

"After the game, everyone is invited to the MKM Marquee and hopefully we will get some photos of the players from their eras and maybe one or two interviews."

Barrow Raiders have asked the RFL (Rugby Football League) if they can borrow a selection of trophies connected to the club's past to ensure it is a day to remember.

These include the Lancashire Cup, won in the 1983/1984 season, and the Second Division Championship Trophy from Raider's triumph in the same season, as well as in 1976.

More recent victories will also hopefully be celebrated with the RFL's permission, including the Championship Trophy from 2009, the League One Trophy from 2003 and 2021, and the League One Cup, lifted by Raiders in 2007.

"It would be lovely if all the invitees could do a half time lap of honour and parade the trophies."

The event at the MKM Marquee will also include entertainment from Leon Knight, an acoustic guitarist and singer.

The Sunday will start with a noon kick-off for Barrow Raiders in the Women's Super League, before the men's Championship fixture takes place at 3:00pm.
