A Brief History of Barrow AFC

A Brief Club History by Phil Yelland

Chapter 3: Post War Struggles and Cup Ties

Little changed immediately after the Second World War although in January 1954 when an F.A. Cup  3rd Round tie with Swansea Town attracted a record crowd of 16,874 to Holker Street. The Town side included a number of Welsh internationals; the game finished 2-2. When the League was reorganised in 1958, the club found itself placed in Division Four. In January 1959, the eyes of the football world turned to Holker Street as the club entertained the mighty Wolverhampton Wanderers in an F.A. Cup 3rd Round tie. On a frozen pitch, a crowd of 16,340 saw the team put up a tremendous performance; the 4-2 winning margin flattered Wolves.
