    Story

    This page has been set up by a group of Barrow Raiders Supporters who are trying to form a Supporters Trust.

    We were asked, by Cresta, before the start of the season to try and form a Supporters Trust and have been actively fund raising ever since. We have a number of events coming up in the near future. The Raiders need all the support they can get especially with promotion in the offing. Unfortunately this season’s fixtures have not been kind to us with our home games bringing very few away fans and home supporters not attending as they deemed the opposition not to be up to standard. Result low income, high outgoings (winning money). Then there was the trip to Toronto, assured by the RFL that these trips wouln't cost clubs any money, this was not quite true. The club had to pay for coach to and from the airport, extra baggage, special visa for some players at £80 each and then there was food and drink for the duration of the trip for 25 players and staff. While this was a fantastic experience for the players it was an expensive one for the club (£4000 approx), and hey ho what happens in the super 8 its Toronto here we come again, the only team to go twice.

    So it is with this in mind we have set up this page, and before the cries of RFL/Toronto should meet costs, this shouldn’t be happening, we agree but nothing will change before we go. The club will have the same costs to bear, maybe more depending on flight times. So let’s get behind the lads, after all they are using their holidays from work to go on this trip, and make this trip as smooth as we can for them. They can have a fantastic trip and enjoy the game and not worry about where the money is coming from to pay their expenses, and keep as relaxed and focused as they can, they will still have an important game to play when they get back. We as fans need to help them do this so they can still be in with a chance of promotion, so any donations will be gratefully received.

    Thank you to those who have already donated with it taking off so quick we have upped the target to £3000.

    Thank you for your support,

    Barrow Raiders Supporters Trust.
