Been remembering some of the great away trips - with what's been happening I must be getting sentimental!

Barrow back in '93 was a great trip - a testimonial for one of their players. The place was full of bears.

Lots of M/D 20 20 was had that day!!

Anyone else remember this?

Remember it well mate. Drove me ,my brother amd a mate down. What a road ...you think you are nearly there on the M6 at Penrith but it takes longer to then cross the lakes to Barrow. Big tank transporters passing on the way to and from Vickers. Ground was a bit of a dive but used the wee social club attached to the ground for a refreshment or two before the game. Remember some mates of mine from the Walsall Aye Loyal drove up for the game and the turnout was Excellent for basically a reserve game. I am sure Chris Vinnicombe was the captain that night.

Was lucky enough to have Gary and a good few of the other players as friends. Was at Garys wedding.

I remember when he arrived there were a few eyebrows raised from the more traditional members of the support at us signing a player who was cohabiting :rolleyes:.

Anyway, it's incredible we used to sign guys like Gary Stevens ... what a player :clap:.
