Barrow Association Football Club is an English football club founded in 1901 based in the town of Barrow-in-Furness in Cumbria. They currently play in the Conference National, the fifth tier of the English league system following play-off promotion from the Conference North at the end of the 2007–08 season. Barrow play their home games at Holker Street, (sponsored for the 2012/13 season as the "Furness Building Society Stadium"), close to the town centre and approximately 0.5 km from Barrow Railway Station. The club spent over fifty years in the Football League between 1921 and 1972, achieving promotion to Division 3 by finishing 3rd in the Football League Fourth Division in the 1966/67 season. The highest league period in the club's history was to be short-lived and a return back to Division 4 came after relegation in 1969/70 season. Fortunes never improved and at the end of the 1971/72 season, after an unsuccessful bid for re-election, Barrow were voted out of the Football League, to be replaced by Hereford United of the Southern League. Barrow have since spent their time in the top two levels of non-league football and have twice won non-league football's most prestigious cup competition, the FA Trophy – in 1990 and 2010, becoming the only club to have won the Trophy at both old and new Wembley Stadium.
The club colours are blue and white, though the combination of these has varied over time, leading to their nickname "The Bluebirds". Attendances at the club's Holker Street ground vary – the home record of 16,874 was set against Swansea City in the FA Cup Third Round in 1954 – but during the 1990s and 2000s the average remained consistently between 800 and 1,500. Average attendance stood at 1,260 during the 2011–12 season.
The club won their second FA Trophy title on 8 May 2010 after beating Stevenage Borough 2–1 in the final at Wembley Stadium.
