Former Reds players talk

Have your say

Former Barnsley FC players John Hendrie and Darren Sheridan will return to the town to recall their memories of the club’s historic 97/98 Premier League season.

The evening will be hosted at the Tandoori Hut restaurant in Staincross on Thursday, April 28.

Hendrie and Sheridan, who is now player/manager at non-league Barrow AFC, will recount pitch and dressing room stories and answer questions from the audience.

Although Hendrie has appeared on the speaking circuit for some time, including at Barnsley’s Lamproom Theatre, this will be the first such engagement by midfielder Sheridan, who played with the Reds for six years between 1993 and 1999.

The evening offers a rare chance to quiz two of the players who experienced the town’s only season in the top division.
