Barnsley FC Alumni players visit social isolation programme funded by Premier League Fans Fund 

We were delighted to welcome former Barnsley FC players Adie Moses and Kayode Odejayi to our Reminiscent Reds programme earlier today. 

Our “Reminiscent Reds” project, is targeted at addressing social isolation, will feature weekly sessions at Oakwell Stadium. Sessions are open to individuals and will incorporate activities and inspire fans, deepening their connection and sense of belonging. 

The Reds duo spoke about their time at the club throughout the different decades retrospectively and took part in Q&As and a session quiz. 

Head of Health and Wellbeing at Barnsley FC Community Trust Sean Margison said: “It was great to have Adie and Kayode join us at Reminiscent Reds this afternoon. Listening to their ups and downs while at Barnsley was interesting. All our participants were engaged and the feedback on the session has been fantastic, and we thank both Adie and Kayode for coming along” 

Our Reminiscent Reds programme is funded by The Premier League Fans Fund.

The Premier League Fans Fund provides grants to support football clubs at all levels of the game to strengthen connections between them, their fans, and local communities.​

The fund supports a range of fan-focused and fan-led projects, helping to foster a sense of belonging through meaningful engagement.​ This includes schemes for under-represented groups, to further develop an inclusive and welcoming matchday experience for everyone. ​

It holds the potential for making a significant impact on the local community. It aspires to engage a wide spectrum of individuals and groups, promoting positive health and well-being, and fostering a sense of community and inclusion. Through engagement with fan groups and communities the project aims to enhance social cohesion and instil a sense of community pride.

Our Reminiscent Reds group runs every Wednesday 2-3:30pm in the Ozone and is free to join.
