Barrow Council is to award £50,000 each to Barrow AFC and Barrow RLFC to help with much needed ground improvements.
The grants will replace an annual grant of £5,000 each which the Council presently gives annually to the clubs.
Leader of the Council Jack Richardson said: “We know that maintaining Holker St and Craven Park to the standards required places a significant burden on both clubs. Fortunately, the Council has a strong capital position and it is in everyone’s interest to replace our annual revenue grant with a larger single capital grant. We wish both clubs continuing success on the pitch”.
