Volunteers involved with Reds in the Community’s ‘Our Club, Our Ground, Our Past, Our Future’ project have been hearing from Professor Stephen Kelly, author of The Kop: Liverpool’s Twelfth Man and Red Voices: United from the Terraces, on exploring football heritage through the stories of both the famous and the fans.
Stephen Kelly is an oral historian and the author of many oral history books and was Director of the Centre for Oral History Research at the University of Huddersfield for a number of years. Along with Judith Jones, a researcher on the ‘Granadaland’ project, which is collecting oral histories of staff who worked at Granada TV between 1956 and 1990, Stephen has been working with a group of volunteers involved in the ‘Our Club, Our Ground, Our Past, Our Future’ Barnsley FC Community Heritage project, which is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, preparing them to undertake their own oral history interviews. Volunteers will be conducting oral history interviews over the coming months to collect memories relating to Barnsley FC.
Reds in the Community is inviting supporters to contribute their memories and experiences of supporting Barnsley FC to the ‘Our Club, Our Ground, Our Past, Our Future’ project to help us to tell the story of the club and its home ground, Oakwell.
Anyone with stories to share can contact Sarah Hughes, Heritage Officer at Reds in the Community, on 01226 211333 or via email at [email protected].’
