It’s nearly a 500-mile round trip to Barrow-in-Furness. And let’s face it – Barrow are hardly the most glamorous side in the league, and they are hardly a team you want to travel 500 miles to see.
But for the handful of fans who made the trek north (the official site est. that 50 RDFC supporters were present) they were more than rewarded. “You don’t mind an 8 hour trip after a performance like that” said the Radio Northants commentator.

Stories from the day that was in the BSP
Cambridge 7-0 FGR It’s surpring, really, that our goalscoring exploits today were beaten anywhere in England – let alone our own division. Yet Cambridge slaughtered FGR, who are surely the Droylsden (or is that an insult to the Bloods?) or the 2009/2010 season. Goals in the 44th, 47th, 51st, 65th, 68th, 74th and 90th minute were enough to ensure CU remained in the play-off places, while FGR (whose form this season is LLLLLLDL) are rooted in 23rd.
Chester get first win With a -20 points total survival is probably out of the question, especially considering their form, even without their points deducation, would put them in a relegation place. Yet FGR, at least, will probably begin looking over their shoulders. The 25 point gap has shrunk to an 18 point one, as Chester got up and running with their win today.
Luton fail to win again I‘m sure I’m not the only one pleased to see the gap between automatic promotion and Luton Town extend to four points, as Luton failed to win for the third time this season.
Gateshead A-A Hayes & Yeading It’s a sentance nobody wants to see: “game abandoned due to serious injury”. With fifteen minutes to go and the game tied at 0-0 H&Y’s Brittain suffered a (suspected) broken leg. The game was delayed for half an hour while he received treatment. Interestingly, the game was not suspended because of the injury, but because the Gateshead team (who had a man sent off earlier in the game) refused to finish the match. “To me there can be only one decision, that we’re awarded the points, we win the game and move on.” said the H&Y coach.
