Barrow Raiders have not been immune to the cost of living rises and have to take responsible action for the remaining two home fixtures with a slight reduction in the online ticketing discount, whilst still retaining our position as the cheapest club for entry in the division.
The Board of Directors’ primary concern is the financial stability of the club and make no apologies for making the decision. All directors are privileged to represent the club’s members and cannot afford to be irresponsible.
The additional funds will go a small way to offsetting the better than expected season we have enjoyed, and with it slightly more winning pay than budgeted. We are all delighted that we have this problem.
Looking further ahead, our aim is to be consistent Championship play-off contenders in the short-term, but we simply must improve our facilities, at considerable cost, if we are to be a contender for Super League.
Your support for our off-field events such as the Tribute Concert on Super Sunday 28 August and Oktoberfest on Friday 30 September and Saturday 1 October has allowed us to put together a quality, entertaining team and to help fund our ladies’ teams and community programme. Your continued support will allow us to put a facilities improvement plan together.
The business model of using Craven Park as much as possible has cast envious glances from our rivals, and your continued support is vital beyond match days. The people of South Cumbria deserve a successful club and we are determined to deliver.
