On the main pitch we’ll be holding a first team open training session taken by Lee Johnson and his backroom staff. Fans are invited to sit in the East Stand Lower Tier and watch the players being put through their paces and tackling a range of training drills as we gear up for the start of the 2015/16 Season! The training session will be followed by an autograph signing session at the bottom of the East Stand where you’ll get the chance to meet your favourite Reds stars!
On the Academy training pitch (behind the North Stand) there will be an exhibition by the Barnsley Ladies football team. All girls and ladies age groups will be training on the 4G pitch throughout the day and fans are invited to watch the teams in action.
