Appointment of Directors

Barrow RLFC are pleased to announce the appointment of Joe Slater as Stadium Director and Andy Gafney as the Players Director.

Joe brings a wealth of experience in employment and business and from his long and successful playing career in the amateur ranks. Joe has been with the club for a few weeks, before being formally voted on at the most recent board meeting, and he has already identified numerous maintenance tasks that are required to keep the ground up to minimum standards. He is hoping to organise a volunteer team to get stuck in to the tasks at hand.

Andy returns to the club in an associate director capacity. He has maintained a close working relationship with the playing and coaching staff and has numerous contacts throughout the rugby league community. He will be a massive help in working with the coach and board assembling a competitive team for Championship rugby.
