When I read your comment I thought it was going to be Carlisle.

Barrow is in the same county, but it's not the easiest journey. It takes more than 90 minutes to drive home from Holker Street. The direct train takes well over two hours, assuming there's one after the match.
I don't think I'll bother with that trip just to watch the under 21s.

I wasn’t being entirely serious, but, outside of Carlisle, they’ve got to be among the group of teams closest to you, haven’t they?

They are. Not including Carlisle, I think the best draw would have been Morecambe, Sunderland and Barrow.

If I hadn't been to Accrington, Barrow or Fleetwood before I'd be tempted to go just to tick off a new ground.

And has played nearly 200 times in the premier league. Good solid pro.
Yeah, didn't quite fulfill the potential we hoped he had, but has been a steady player and his pace will always mean he poses some threat.

The U23s didn't get relegated from the top league last season after all. More fantastic communication from the club.

It seems like they've had to balance the teams as a couple of new clubs have joined the second division.
