A win will add to the Reds' party atmosphere

By Kate Pickles, Town Reporter Friday 14th September 2012
Barnsley FC players John Stones, Stephen Foster, Luke Steele, and Rob Evans go mental for Barnsley FC's 125th anniversary.

Barnsley players are hoping to add to the party atmosphere at Oakwell tomorrow by beating Blackpool.


The club is celebrating its 125th anniversary and manager Keith Hill said there would be no better way to mark it than with a win.


"It will be a privilege for myself as the manager and for the players to represent Barnsley on the club's 125th anniversary," he said.


"We will be going out to play for the fans and give them a performance and result which they can celebrate."


Prices have been slashed for the fixture with Blackpool FC which happens to be celebrating the same milestone in 2012.


There will be a fireworks display as players run onto the field, representatives from the armed forces and activities for children.


Supporters are being encouraged to wear fancy dress with prizes going to the best dressed fans in each stand.
