Their manager sounds like a manic depressive on the radio but he won't tolerate defeat at any cost which I like.

Nah you're thinking of Paul Cox pal, listening to him and Evatt are like chalk and cheese.

No it's Evatt I'm talking about. Has a very monotone voice. Sounds depressed.

I remember Paul Cox and his endless waffle. A lunatic by all accounts.

I would have Evatt over Pressley any day. He’s done well on a small budget at club that is no one’s first choice to play. He signs proven players with a mix of youth at experience and I like how he appreciates the fan base

An away trip to Barrow on the train would be good
2h 45 minutes on a Pacer train covering the length of Cumbria. Bring it on.

Say for example we stay up and Barrow get promoted into the league, I wonder what the crowd would be for the home fixture as their place only holds around 5k so would no doubt sell out but on a Saturday at our place I would imagine a 12k crowd and possibly more if we could get the fixture played on Boxing Day - would be like getting a decent draw in the cup as far as attendances go.

Am I aiming too high with those figures and it would be more like 10k?

6 or 7k would be nearer the mark. Barrow isn't a big draw.

Barrow travelled 6-7k in the cup a few years ago so quite plausible they would bring a good number here.

Exactly, just listen to them speak for a start. Not an ounce of Cumbrian dialect in there.

The only reason why the spot was included into the formation of Cumbria was because Lancashire wanted nowt to do with them.

They'll also be miffed as they would have got 3 points today - can't believe Dover didn't stay overnight - it would take a full day to get there - more than 6 hours.

Must still be a few of us around who remember seeing Barrow at Brunton Park in the old Div 3N, and then Div 4. It wasn’t thought of as any sort of derby in those days, that was strictly reserved for Workington games.

No surprise there the railways are a shambles with so many ticket prices between A and B and the first announcement you get on a train that is overcrowded with no seats for your overpriced ticket is "if your ticket isn't for a X train then you'll need to pay a supplemental ticket charge"

Renationalise the railways now...

Still going strong, I`d be pleased for `em if they can hold on to that top spot, sooner have them in the league than the likes of Stevenage, Crawley and Forest Green. Also would be good if Danny Grainger can lead Workington Reds back into the Northern Premier League. Would be a boost for Cumbrian football, even if Barrow sometimes don`t consider themselves Cumbrian.

Stay safe, stay healthy all.

I see their ground passed its grading this week to allow them to play in the league as it is for up to three years. I.m assuming their plans must have included some extra seats [ probably a hired in stand ] but where they.ll put it god knows as their new fan zone is going in that space to the left of the Crossbar club that's the obvious option but i.m pretty sure they need to increase the capacity by about 500.

I know that Accy had to pull all sorts of tricks to stay over the 5k figure once they had to start putting seats in [ down the side and in the front of the Clayton End] to reach the 2k seat rule which kicks in after you.ve been in the league for 3 years. Till they built the new stand it was a juggling act and one that they got round in the end by putting in a planning application for a stand that they never had any intention of building which meant that the FL let them take the seats out of the Clayton and return it to standing thereby increasing the capacity even tho it meant they needed a dispensation to run ith 250 seats short of the 2k rule. I suspect Barrow might be playing the same game as I .ve seen plans for how they would replace the main stand with one considerably bigger in time for the 3-year rule without losing the use of the existing structure.

But if the recently installed segregation structure is permanent I would say you're only looking at an away allocation of around 500 plus a few seats. I would think financially theyd be better off making the whole of the Holker end for away fans say 1000 as the Away clubs are more likely to fill those extra 500 places than Barrow fans would be unless of course promotion drags another 2k down there every week in which case theyd be looking at gates of 4k plus which would be bloody good going.

All power to Evatt for what he's done at Barra.....like Zebby cant get overly excited, and didn't actually realise they'd been gone since the 60s, so even more of a big deal for them.
2k plus is normal for some clubs already in div 2.
They train in the Manchester area don't they and only turn up for home games.

They've just put new segregation barriers in right in the middle of the Holker end with a sterile area either side and although the away side includes the corner I can't see it being much more than 500.

Would make sense to me if they moved it across till the away section holds say 1000 as i.d be pretty sure over a season away teams would put more fans into those 500 places than Barrow would.

When you have grounds/teams like Notts County/chesterfield/Stockport/Darlington out the league and Barrow coming in FFS.

But that’s football and that’s why we love it I guess.

Are they going to put covering on the terrace behind the goal..it used to have one years ago did it or did i imagine that ?

I am sure there be no problems putting things in place should they go up,many other sides got sorted with seating etc.

2300 plus is a good gate for them,its gradually going up and im sure if they got over the line there be quite a buzz around Barrow for being back in the league..and more fans would consider going.

Carlisle must have the lowest total away attendance in England. The more northern teams the better not to mention saving on travel and hotel costs. They were a football league side for 50 years becoming a member about 7 years before Carlisle..

I for one am hoping they go up instead of the likes of Yeovil or Boredom Wood.

Since when was Harrogate not northern?

It is further north than Blackpool.

Harrogate for me.
