Barrow Raiders are delighted to announce a brand-new two-year partnership with kit supplier O’Neills.
O’Neills are a quality supplier for the very best rugby league teams and were successful when we invited them to tender for our playing and merchandise contract.
We are very excited with this partnership, with O’Neills also set to supply our ladies teams, LD team and Furness Raiders team when they are ready for renewal.
They also offer a wide range of leisurewear products that our players will be proud to wear at training and on matchdays, and will also be on offer to our fans.
Next week, we intend to conduct an online launch for our 2023 home and alternate kits, and we are sure that our supporters will welcome the new designs that combine tradition and commemoration with the modern.

Supporters will be able to order their new replicas in time for delivery in early November. Revealing the designs early may also persuade some fans to purchase our new VIP season ticket, with the package including a 2023 shirt of choice.
Once the shirts are revealed, you will see a brand new main shirt sponsor in the shape of Steve Woods Ltd.
Following a chance meeting with our chairman in a pub after the Betfred Challenge Cup final in London, Steve was sold on the progress and potential of the club and seemed keen to get involved. He has since built a relationship with Adele from our commercial department, and has come on board in a two-year deal.
On his decision to become the club’s new main shirt sponsor, Mr Woods said: “Rugby league has been a huge part of the lives of my family and I. We feel proud and privileged to be able to support Barrow Raiders, and I am keen to be part of the exciting journey, hopefully into Super League.”
Steve Woods and his family will be in attendance at our play-off clash against Batley Bulldogs on Sunday as our guests, and we would like to welcome them as a new part of our family. We hope that he sees from the supporters what a fantastic club we have.
Advanced Roofing & Plastics Centre, our previous main shirt sponsor, have not in any way lowered their commitment, and they will now feature on the shoulders and back, as well as continuing their investment to the club with a season-long hospitality box deal.

We are forever thankful to John and Vicky, who have provided unwavering support through some tough times over the years. It is through sponsors like them that have allowed the club to firstly survive and then flourish.
Also continuing their shirt deals are the club’s main sponsor Matt Johnson Prestige, grandstand sponsor Furness Park Motors, Bender UK – sponsors of our upcoming Oktoberfest event – and Parker Technical Services, who also feature on the shirts of our ladies and Learning Difficulty teams.
All of our sponsors do so much more than provide shirt sponsorship, and every single one of them have the interests of the club at heart, helping us on numerous initiatives and projects, often behind the scenes.
We would like to put on record our thanks to our new partners O’Neills and to all of our sponsors, whose support we couldn’t do without.
