BE RED vs Reading

29 December 2017

Coming up for you in this weekend's edition of our official matchday magazine...

The Reds take on the Royals on Saturday, a game dedicated to the late Norman Rimmington BEM and so our programme on this occasion reflects upon his enormous contribution to the club.

We have Rimmo-related memories from Reds staff including Paul Heckingbottom, Craig Sedgwick, Nathan Winder and Malcolm Mitchell, who explain what it's been like around Oakwell on a day-to-day basis since Norman's passing 12 months ago. 

Also included are the thoughts of the legend himself, gathered over the 65+ years he worked at Oakwell in a variety of roles, as players, managers and staff came and went.

Grandson of Norman, Richard Ward speaks openly about the last 12 months and thanks supporters for making his passing that little bit easier to deal with. 


On top of all that we have our regular features, including...


PAUL HECKINGBOTTOM - The Gaffer reflects in his usual column

ANGUS MacDONALD - The Skipper's thoughts 

BEHIND-THE-SCENES - We catch up with another member of staff

NEIL RICHARDSON - Neil returns with his unique take on all things Reds

IAN McMILLAN - The Bard of Barnsley's weekly musings

We also have our usual 10 pages focusing on this weekend's visitors from Berkshire.
