CONFIRMED: Eric Winstanley is joining us this Saturday!

11 September 2017

We are celebrating our 130th anniversary this Saturday as we welcome Aston Villa to Oakwell in the Sky Bet Championship.

We have much in store for Reds fans as we look to commemorate this momentous occasion, and we can now reveal that a host of former heroes will be attending the fixture as guests of Barnsley Football Club. 

Eric Winstanley made over 400 appearances for his hometown Club during 11 years at Oakwell. He would later become a key part of the coaching staff who oversaw the development of many talented young players and guided the Reds to the Premier League in 1997. 

Barnsley favourite Eric Winstanley will be in attendance to say happy birthday to Barnsley FC... will you?!

To secure your tickets for this commemorative fixture, please visit or call 01226 211183. Alternatively, visit the Oakwell Box Office, which is open 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday, and 9am – 12pm on Saturday.
