Match Previews

PREVIEW: Gainsborough Trinity Vs Barnsley

6 July 2018

Barnsley are back in training ahead of the new season and Saturday sees the first friendly of pre-season and Daniel Stendel's first match in charge.

The Reds make the short journey East this Saturday for a 12 noon friendly encounter with hosts, Gainsborough Trinity. 

The 40-mile trip for Reds supporters takes around an hour, with the Northolme Stadium having a capacity of 4,350, their home since 1884.

Trinity were established in 1873 as Trinity Recreationists by Reverend George Langton Hodgkinson, the vicar at the Holy Trinity Church.

In the 145 years since they were first formed, they had never been promoted and never been relegated, until last season..

The Lincolnshire side spent two decades as a Football League club early in their existence, only to suffer the fate of not being re-elected when they finished bottom of Division Two in 1912, as the Reds lifted the FA Cup.

Apart from that, they have only ever moved divisions as a result of league restructuring.

But that all changed when, after being 2-0 up at relegation rivals Telford, they shipped three goals in 15 minutes to lose 3-2 - a result that condemned Trinity to the drop to the Northern Premier League.


The kick off has been brought forward to 12pm with both clubs keen to allow supporters attending the fixture to be able to then watch England in their World Cup Quarter Final tie with Sweden at 3pm. 


Saturday's opening fixture of pre-season sees new Head Coach, Daniel Stendel lead out his charges for the first time, giving him an opportunity to learn more about them ahead of a big season in Sky Bet League One. 

Tickets are available on the day, priced as follows:

Adults - £8

Concessions - £5

U16s - £3

Match Reports

REPORT: Gainsborough Trinity 0-2 Barnsley

7 July 2018

Tom Bradshaw at the double as the Reds begin pre-season with a win.

Daniel Stendel’s first match in charge of his Barnsley side saw the Reds travel to a sun-soaked Lincolnshire, taking on Gainsborough Trinity of the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Division. 

Naming a different outfield team in each half, it was the forward line of Bradshaw/Adeboyejo that broke the deadlock with the former heading home Alex Mowatt’s pinpoint corner after just 10 minutes. 

A half in which the Reds dominated from start to finish, Adam Davies continued to watch from his backline as Bradshaw extended the lead. Alex Mowatt picked up the ball in central midfield before clipping a lofted pass wide to Zeki Fryers. The left-back controlled well, crossed and there was Bradshaw to volley home left-footed, for his and the Reds’ second.

HALF TIME: Gainsborough 0-2 Barnsley 

Daniel Stendel changed his whole outfield in the second half, with only Adam Davies stopping it from being a fully changed XI.  

Lloyd Isgrove had an early chance just seconds after the break but couldn’t quite connect with a low cross, before Kieffer Moore controlled and volleyed in the area, only to see his effort blocked.

Bodies on-the-line stuff continued from the hosts as Mamadou Thiam was next to go close, before his follow up was also saved well by Chris Elliott in the Gainsborough net. 

The hosts had chances of their own coming forward on the break, but every time they got near the Barnsley area they were crowded out and pushed back.

No goals in the second half, but plenty to be happy with for Daniel Stendel and his coaching staff in their first game in change.  

FULL TIME: Gainsborough Trinity 0-2 Barnsley

First half XI: Adam Davies, Will Smith, Liam Lindsay, Zeki Fryers, Dylan Mottley-Henry, Cameron McGeehan, Dani Pinillos, Alex Mowatt, George Moncur, Tom Bradshaw, Victor Adeboyejo.

Second half XI: Adam Davies, Jason McCarthy, Ethan Pinnock, Dimitri Cavare, Adam Jackson, Ben Williams, Lloyd Isgrove, Ryan Hedges, Jared Bird, Mamadou Thiam, Kieffer Moore.
