Cash raised by fans donated to Barnsley FC academy

Have your say

Barnsley Football Club’s academy has been presented with a cheque for £1,300 from the proceeds of a supporters’ bar run by fans.

The money is to be spent on helping to provide new kits for the under 8 to under 16 age groups.

Redfearn’s Bar volunteer and trust board member, Paul Hicks, said: “It’s a credit to Barnsley fans that they’ve taken to Redfearn’s Bar so quickly.

“It’s obviously hard work setting up and closing down every match day, but the support from the fans turning up in their numbers and making this cheque possible make it all worthwhile.

“We hope there’s much more to come with the fans’ support.”
