Barrow

Barrow Association Football Club is an English professional association football club which was founded in 1901 and is based in the town of Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria. The club participates in EFL League Two, the fourth tier of the English league system. Since 1909, Barrow have played their home games at Holker Street, near the town centre and about one-half mile (1 km) from the Barrow railway station.

Having initially played in the Lancashire Combination, Barrow joined the Football League in 1921. They remained in the bottom level of the competition until 1967, when they achieved promotion to the Third Division by finishing third in the Fourth Division. The club's highest league placing was in 1967–68, when they finished eighth in the Third Division. They declined quickly, however, and at the end of the 1971–72 season Barrow were voted out of the Football League in the re-election process. They then spent 48 seasons in the top two levels of non-league football, with five relegations from – and promotions to – the Alliance Premier League (later the Football Conference and the National League), of which they were a founding member in 1979. Barrow won the FA Trophy (non-league football's most prestigious cup competition) in 1990 and 2010. They returned to the Football League as National League champions in 2020. Barrow's promotion back to the Football League made them the first, and to date only, club to have been promoted back to the Football League having previously lost their league place via the re-election process.

The club colours are blue and white. Their combination has varied, and their nickname is "The Bluebirds". The record attendance at Holker Street is 16,874, for a match against Swansea Town in the 1954 FA Cup third round.
