The 1901 Club

This season has seen Barrow A.F.C and The Bluebirds Trust work brilliantly together to raise funds for investment in the football club we love. None of this would have been possible without YOU.

The 1901 club, the new Bluebirds Lottery, will be administered by the Trust, working with the club to raise funds for fan projects at Barrow AFC, which will improve Holker Street for all our supporters.

For 2019-20, The Bluebirds Lottery will be to raising money to support a fantastic initiative – the renovation of the old West Terrace area of the ground into a zone for the whole fan community. There will be much improved facilities, a family section and also a new disabled area with better views, so that all our fans can watch the Bluebirds in the best way possible.

The 1901 Club replaces the club's Gold Bond lottery. For a one-off fee of £25 per entry, members of the 1901 Club will receive a unique number which is entered into monthly draws for cash prizes. These draws run all year meaning that, for a single upfront payment, members get twelve chances to win spread across an entire year.

The draws will pay three places every month, with 25% of all revenues from 1901 Club ticket sales being retained for prize money. The other 75% will go entirely to Barrow AFC* for use in the development of a “fan zone” including improved disabled and family seating. No lottery agents to pay, no external business taking a cut. Your money goes to your club.

The 1901 Club is your chance to help Barrow AFC grow and improve, while at the same time giving yourself a chance to win cash prizes. Entries will ONLY be on sale until 31st July so please take advantage of this exciting new initiative presented jointly by the Bluebirds Trust and Barrow AFC.

You can join online using the link below.

Paper forms will be available at the Hartlepool Match tomorrow and from the club shop until 31st July 2019.

Great news. Great idea.
Couldn't make tonight so my £25 is already in the pot.
Will try to get a few more involved too.

Quick question; will existing Gold Bond subscription be automatically cancelled or do we need to contact the organisers (Blackpool FC)?

The 1901 Club sounds like a good idea, and at least we'll be able to see where our contributions are going to.

Sorry to be dumb, but I have a standing order of £1 going out every month to 'Barrow AFC'. I can't remember what that is for. Is it some sort of monthly draw?

Probably will be Jim. I would cancel it if you don't know what it is. Join the new scheme.

If the cut off date is 31st July does that mean the first draw is Aug? If so which date please?

The area will be a focus for Community Centred Ground Improvements, stay tuned for further details.

We checked with Ryan yesterday and he said the club will be communicating a message about the Gold Bond draw in due course.

Yes the first draw is in August. Draws will take place on the 1st of every month.

We will write to entrants in the coming weeks with your entry number.

Please keep on buying your entries and spread the word as widely as possible.

We really hope to make the 1901 Club a big success and we can only do that with YOUR help. Tell your friends, family, colleagues etc about the draw and encourage them to join. The more people that join, the bigger the prize pot, and the more we can all help the club.


We'll post a regular update on the Trust Website and update our totaliser just for Andy Leitch :lol: but please keep asking any questions you might have.

You can fill in a form at the club reception during their normal opening hours., they are taking payments like they did for the Share Contributions. All entries will then be passed to us to process.


We will of course also be taking entries at home pre-season games until 31st July (that seems a long time off doesnt it?) and we'll happily post forms out to exiles and drop them off locally if you need us to.
