Neil Redfearn’s Oakwell Memories!

To celebrate the 130-year history of Barnsley Football Club, we have been interviewing former players as part of our Heritage Project, ‘Our Club, Our Ground, Our Past, Our Future’.

So far, we have spoken to Head Coach Paul Heckingbottom, Reds legend Ronnie Glavin, fellow former Red Bruce Dyer and fans who have shared their memories of the Reds.

Now it is the turn of another Reds hero, Neil Redfearn, to share his favourite memories of Oakwell and his time with the Reds!

Supporters of all ages are encouraged to share their memories with us. Whether of a win in the 1960s or at last weekend’s match; at Oakwell in the ’80s or watching the Reds on the road—we want to hear your stories of those special memories. Where it was, who you were with, how you got there, and maybe even what you ate; we’re looking for whatever it is that made these moments unforgettable for you.

Reds in the Community will feature some of the memories shared in displays at Oakwell. We hope that supporters and the wider community continue to share their memories and experiences of supporting Barnsley, through which fans continue to write the club’s history, into the future.
