BARROW AFC have announced they will be running additional coaches for supporters who wish to attend Easter Monday’s local derby against Morecambe.

Four extra coaches will now be leaving Holker Street at 12 pm on April 1.

The decision comes after Network Rail warned of disruption between Lancaster and Barrow-in-Furness due to a train being derailed in Grange-over-Sands on March 22.

Network Rail have said bus replacement services will be in operation whilst the line is repaired which could last for up to two weeks.

Chief Operating Officer, Alisha Henry said: Having spoken to the police, our safety team, and the Bluebirds Trust, we concluded that following the rail disruptions coming out of Barrow, it would be important for the club to help support the fans traveling down to Morecambe on Easter Monday.

“After a lot of communication between local bus and coach services over the weekend, we’re delighted to announce that we have managed to secure an additional four supporter coaches for the big game on Monday.”
