Come 4pm tomorrow, Barrow Island’s season will be over or they will have an extension to their campaign in Division Two of the National Conference League.

Island take on Crosfields in their final league game of the campaign and if successful they will clinch a play-off place in their bid for a place in Division One.

Lose, and they remain in the Second Division, but they will lose neighbours Askam, who will be dropping into Division Three.

Dan White apart, the Island have a near full-strength squad to choose from, but will have to pull out all the stops to prevent the Warrington-based side making the play-offs themselves.

Coach Joe Elliott feels home advantage will help see the Island across the finishing line, although they have had some poor results on their own patch of late.

Elliott said: “We are all fit and ready to go, it is a must win or our season is over. We have the squad to see us home, but we have to put in a performance.

“It has to be one last big effort and we look to complete the double over them - it was a wet day when we played them and it could be another wet one tomorrow.”

Island will have to be on top of their game and in recent encounters they have got off to a flyer, playing fast entertaining rugby and building up a good lead.

However, for what ever reason, they have let the opposition back into the frame, so they have to be consistent throughout and concentrate for the full 80 minutes.

They do, though, have the big-game players to see them to victory in Sam Jones, Carl McBain, Matt Parkinson, Adam Nicholson and Adam Jackson.

It has been tough at times for the Island in an unforgiving division, but they have coped very well with so many quality teams in the likes of West Bowling and the two Wigan clubs - St Judes and Ince Rose Bridge.

If they go up, they will have to up their game again but this is a challenge all at Rating Lane will cherish.

In Division Three, Millom are on the road tomorrow, as they’ll be travelling to Dewsbury Celtic and at the time of going to press, coach Tom Sibley was working overtime to get 17 players on the bus.

The Woolybacks chief said ahead of the trip to Yorkshire: “We are struggling a bit for players with so many unavailable for different reasons.

“These things happen now and again and we will get a side to go. but at present i don’t know who’s going .

“We did pretty well at Crosfields in our midweek game during cup final week before losing 32-10, but we were in with a shout until they got a couple of late tries.”
