FOOTBALL: Vauxhall Motors .....1 Barrow.............1.

THE MOTORMEN had to be content with a point from this Uni-Bond League Premier Division clash full of controversy. Barrow keeper Bishop was lucky only to see yellow, when he clearly brought down Vauxhall's top scorer Fearns as early as the eighth minute,but then the Cumbrians had cause to be disgruntled when the referee failed to point to the spot on two separate occasions.

In the second half, theMotormen deservedly took a 53rdminute lead, whenFearns cleverly converted a Cumiskey pass,by turning his marker while Bishop made further saves from Cumiskey and Robinson.

But then the Cumbrians began a determined fight back before Rankine,barely on the field 30 seconds, fired a Barrow equaliser in the83rd minute.

VAUXHALL:Hilton,Ward, Rigby, Whelan, Robinson, Norman,Nesbitt, Lawton,Fearns,Wright, Cumiskey. Subs: Young,Lynch,Griffiths.
