Barrow Football Team 1946 47

A Memory of Barrow

My dad met my mam, who lived in Romney Road, when he played football for Barrow FC. They were married on 31st of July 1947 at St James' Church. My mam and dad moved to Gateshead where my dad played for Gateshed FC until 1953. I was born in 1948 and have many memories of holidays spent in Barrow, where some of my mam's family still live.
