A BARROW football club has been given the go-ahead to build a new clubhouse.

Barrow Celtic's new clubhouse will be situated next to the parking area adjacent to Newby Terrace.

Club officials had submitted a planning application to Barrow Borough Council to build a new clubhouse to include disabled facilities and a kitchen.

The application has now been granted approval.

The plans are part of an 18-month improvement programme at the club which has included new fencing and sponsorship boards.
