Re: 40 Years of National League. Barrow v Yeovil

Years later I got to know some of the Yeovil backroom staff and I mentioned I'd been at that first game in what was then called the Alliance. I remember the game because George Courtney was the ref. He'd been in charge of the Charity Shield Wembley Final only the week before. The Glovers official sa...

Re: Photos of ground developments

On page two of this thread there's a photo of what looks like a store room. Was this under the BDF shop and if so how did you get into it ? That's some work you lot are putting in put in, you're a credit to the club. I never thought I would get so excited about seeing photographs of refurbished away...

Re: Maidenhead v Barrow

I do apologise if asking about the club's financial situation is perceived by some people on this forum as being negative. Having said that some of the people that seem upset by me asking these questions were the same ones accusing me of being Paul Casson a few months ago so what the hell do they kn...

Re: Maidenhead v Barrow

I seem to recall the Cassons buying the club for what Holker Street was valued at the time. I think the sum of 630 thousand was mentioned. The new owners which of course also includes the Trust, paid, I think I'm right in suggesting, 500k so maybe this came with some debt. As in the Cassons wanted t...

Re: Maidenhead v Barrow

I've noticed in Manager and Board interviews there's often a reference about uncovering debts. I thought the previous regime had left the club "debt free" I thought that had been what had been implied when the new board took over but from listening to recent interviews that appears not to have been ...

Re: BARROW v Dover match thread

Other teams take a two nil lead against us, it's game over but when we go two up you're always hoping we can hang on. This season has been a success because we've stayed up with a lot to spare but if we're to become serious play off contenders next season we need wholesale changes.

Re: Ground Maintenance Area

I don't know how much it would cost but has the club ever considered pressure washing the terracing ? I'd imagine it's never been done and I'm sure it would make the ground look a lot better. A cathedral where I live has recently had the once over and it's transformed the place. Keep up the good wor...

Re: BARNET x BARROW match thread

Positives from today's game 1. I thought Hardcastle had a decent first half. Rooney was solid and Turner played well when he came on. 2. They had a clear penalty that wasn't given. 3 The facilities were good for the away support.Decent bar, toilet facilities, and Viewing position was reasonable. Neg...

Re: Barnet rip-off

I actually started a thread on the Barnet fans forum earlier this week to make the same point. Barnet supporters are clearly aware of the situation as it's been a massive talking point among visiting fans. There was talk that Dagenham and Redbridge Supporters Club were making some type of official c...

Re: D&R away

I thought club's had to charge away supporters the same they charge home fans yet I see Barnet's cheapest Adult ticket in the home end for Saturday's game with us is £10 yet the cheapest away ticket is £20. Seems wrong.

Re: Eric Harrison RIP

After his spell at Utd he got a job sponsored by McDonalds running Soccer Schools around the country with Geoff Hurst. When I met them I said to Geoff " You may have scored a hat trick in a World Cup Final but you've never played for the mighty Barrow like this man" Geoff laughed and Eric went on to...
