Storm Frank raids Barrow’s stadium

Barrow Raiders are facing a disrupted start to the 2016 season, after Storm Frank damaged their stadium.

Hoardings have been damaged and concrete has split in parts of the stadium.

The club hope to have the stadium back in operation for the visit of Workington Town on January 17.

“The wind has caught the wall and split the blocking, making the wall unsafe,” Raiders director of rugby Mike Sunderland told the North West Evening Mail.

“We think the wind has caught the hoarding and put extra loading on the wall.

“Unfortunately it is going to cost the club thousands of pounds which, unfortunately, we don’t have, we may have to do some fundraising for it.

“We would love it if we could get some help from businesses, it is a massive cost to us which is unexpected and it is a safety issue and has to be done as quickly as possible.”
