Barnsley Football Club has had over 970 first-team players and this book recalls the careers of 100 of the finest. Whether they spent most of their career at Oakwell like Charlie Baines and Harry Hough, or only had a brief spell there like Johnny Bryne and George Kerr, if an impact was made and a lasting memory created they will be found in these pages. Players from the early years of the club's history are featured, including those who took part in the historic FA Cup run such as Philip Bratley, Jack Cooper and George Lillycrop, as well as those from later years like Arthur Kaye and Ronnie Glavin. Barnsley have been through many highs and lows, from the FA Cup win of 1912 to the depths of the Fourth Division in the 1970s and the players included in this book bring alive the memories of both the best and the worst of times at Oakwell. Written by Barnsley fan Grenville Firth and including a foreword by Neil Redfearn, this illustrated guide to Barnsley's greatest players is a must-have for any true fan.
