A Brief History of Barrow AFC

A Brief Club History by Phil Yelland

Chapter 5: Fighting For Survival

The club joined the Northern Premier League in August 1972 and found life at the lower level a struggle with resources scarce and a distinct lack of success. In 1976, the club reached the F.A.Cup 1st Round Proper for the first time since losing League status but, the side led by former Scotland international and Liverpool star Ron Yeats lost 2-0 at home to fellow NPL outfit Goole Town. The crowd of 3,255 showed that the town still wanted football success.
