Reds' legend cheers Barnsley pub

REDS' legend John Hendrie has named a town centre pub as the place to be before going to Oakwell.

'Super John', who played for the club between 1996-99, was endorsing the Manx Arms on Sheffield Road.

The pub was taken over by landlady Lyndsey Smith, 36, in March.

She is a huge Barnsley FC fan and has decorated the pub in memorabilia including football shirts, photographs and flags.


John said: "Lyndsey is a really big Barnsley fan and the amount of memorabilia in the pub is incredible. There are shirts from lots of different eras and photos for Barnsley fans to see.

"It's a good place for Barnsley fans to go, it's a very welcoming place and it's only a short walk down the hill on match days."

Lyndsey has also organised for supporters' buses to run run from the pub for every away game next season.

Great to see one of Barnsley's oldest Pubs bouncing back, its about the same age as Barnsley FC so lets hope BFC can follow suit and bounce back into the Championship
