Let’s Club2gether Charity Football Competition

photo (4)The Supporters Trust are delighted to have entered a team into this season’s Charity Club Competition.  Last season, the trust team got to the semi finals before eventually losing out, aided by our star players Bruce Dyer and “Sir” Bobby Hassell.

Sunday 10th May 2015!

If you want to take part in the Trust’s team and have the chance to play alongside two legends on the hallowed turf, please contact info@bfcst.org.uk as soon as possible.  Cost for entry is just £40 per person.

BFCST & WSB FANZINE CHARITY WALK TO BRADFORD CITY FC – 25th APRIL 2015

Join us or simply donate to the cause

BFCST & WSB FANZINE CHARITY WALK TO BRADFORD CITY FC – 25th APRIL 2015

Barnsley FC Supporters’ Trust and Fanzine combine for good cause

Barnsley Football Club Supporters’ Trust and the West Stand Bogs Fanzine are working together to walk 23.9 miles to Bradford City Football Club in memory of the 56 football fans who tragically never made it home on 11th May 1985.

 

When Bradford City host Barnsley on Saturday 25th April, it will be 30 years since a fire engulfed the main stand at Bradford, and this charity walk aims to raise money for the Plastic Surgery and Burns Research Unit, alongside local Barnsley charity Jaxon’s Gift. Jaxon’s Gift supports families in the region impacted by the death of a young child.

 

BFCST have had a long affiliation with Bradford City Football Club, both on and off the pitch, working in the past to organise a commemorative game between the clubs to celebrate Barnsley’s promotion to the Premier League. Paul Gallagher, Chairman of BFCST, commented ‘The Bradford City Fire will always go down as one of the saddest days in football history. Nobody should fail to make it home from a football match, and we’re honoured that ourselves and our fanzine are working together to make a difference for this anniversary. We’ve started the ball rolling on donations by contributing £400 from the proceeds of Redfearn’s Bar to the Plastic Surgery and Burns Research unit, and we encourage as many supporters as possible to get involved or make a donation to this great cause’.

 

West Stand Bogs is a relatively new, non profit making, fanzine only 18 months old, but thriving issue after issue and soaring in popularity with fans. Liam Dyson, co-founder of the fanzine, said ‘After organising a similar walk to Chesterfield earlier in the season and raising £8,500 for the Barnsley Churches Drop In charity, we’re delighted to be working with the Supporters’ Trust on this charity walk to not only support the Plastic Surgery and Burns Research Unit, but Jaxon’s Gift as well, a local charity, chosen by our readers as the charity they would like us to get behind. Hopefully we’ll get a good turn out. There’s likely to be some stiff legs at 3pm but it’s all worth it!’

 

All fans are invited to take part in the walk which will leave Oakwell at approximately 4am on Saturday 25th April, with donations being gratefully accepted at:

An evening with Nicky Eaden

Barnsley FC Supporters’ Trust are pleased to confirm that Nicky Eaden will be our  guest on Wed 29th January 2014 at The Legends Suite  at Oakwell starting at 7pm.

Nicky made almost 300 league and cup appearances for the club, helping us gain promotion to the Premier League in 1996-97, and the Division One play-off final at the old Wembley in 2000.

He holds his UEFA pro licence coaching badge, has also passed the LMA certificate in management, and worked as an assistant manager at Championship, League One and Conference levels.

After leaving Oakwell as a player, Eaden made 74 appearances for Birmingham City, helping them reach the League Cup Final in 2001 and to win the Division One play-off final in 2002.

He then joined Wigan Athletic, initially on loan, and went on to make over 117 appearances for the Latics. During his time there the Lancashire club won the old Second Division title in 2002-03 and were runners-up in the Championship in 2004-05.

Eaden, who currently lives in the midlands with his family, also had spells with Nottingham Forest, Lincoln, Halesowen Town, Solihull Moors and Kettering Town.

He became player-coach at Kettering, before becoming assistant boss to manager Mark Cooper during the 2008-09 season.

In November 2009, Cooper was appointed manager of Championship club Peterborough United, and Eaden accompanied him, again as assistant manager.

Just over a year later Eaden departed Posh by mutual consent.

In March 2011, Eaden joined the coaching staff of Rotherham United on a contract until the end of the season, working under his one-time Barnsley team-mate Andy Liddell.

But with Liddell losing out to Andy Scott for the full-time manager’s role at the club, Eaden departed at the end of his contract.

He was quickly back in work, agreeing a two-year contract to become assistant manager to Marcus Law at Tamworth.

However, just a week later Eaden announced he had suffered a change of heart and would not be taking up the post, instead taking up the same role at Kettering Town.

He is currently the Under 21 coach for Leicester City and more recently guest summariser with BFC Player.

Come and join Nicky for an evening of Video and Q&A

The meeting will start at 7.00pm in the Legends Suite, East Stand at Oakwell and will be chaired by Ray Brammer.

Admission is free for all Supporters Trust Members.  Free membership is available by filling in this form

A cash bar will be available

Please submit any questions for Nicky to info@bfcst.org.uk
