A Brief History of Barrow AFC

A Brief Club History by Phil Yelland

Founded in September 1901, the club began playing competitive football in the Lancashire Combination League at its first home ground, 'The Strawberry'.

Chapter 1: In The Beginning

Founded in September 1901, the club began playing competitive football in the Lancashire League at its first home ground 'The Strawberry'. They then moved to a new ground at Ainslie Street in the town. A further move to Little Park, Roose saw the club enjoy their first success, winning promotion to Division One of the Lancashire Combination in 1908. The following year saw the club move to its current home, Holker Street , and the first game saw a 5-2 success over Eccles Borough. There was no major success before the outbreak of the First World War apart from an F.A. Cup run which ended at the hands of then Football League Division Two outfit, Bradford Park Avenue.
