BE RED Vs Sheffield Wednesday

9 February 2018

Here's what we have coming up for you in this weekend's special edition of our official matchday magazine..

For Saturday's match against our local rivals, Sheffield Wednesday, BE RED is dedicated to our former owner, Patrick Cryne. 

After valiantly battling cancer for over a year, Mr Cryne sadly passed away on January 22nd at the age of 66 and the news left everyone affiliated to Barnsley Football Club in mourning. 

An absolute icon of the town and its Club, Patrick left us all with many memories of which we can forever hold close to our hearts. 

In dedicating this edition of BE RED to the great man, we spoke EXCLUSIVELY to the people closest to him, with more than half of this 100-page issue packed with memories from friends, family and colleagues. 

Read eulogies from the likes of Gauthier Ganaye, Robert Zuk, Ben Mansford, Barry Taylor, Paul Conway, Chien Lee, Maurice Watkins, Conor Hourihane, Lee Johnson and many more, as they remark upon the passing of a man whose legacy at Oakwell will stand the test of time. 

As ever, we'll have our regular content, including 10 pages of content focused on this Saturday's visitors from Sheffield. 

Neil Richardson and Ian McMillan return with their columns this week devoted to Mr Cryne.

We catch up with another 'Red Abroad' in our season-running feature focused on getting stories from Reds supporters located around the globe. 

Also, we speak with Reds caretaker Head Coach Paul Harsley, and give you the lowdown on our January transfer window recruits.

All this and more, in your official matchday magazine!

Profits gained from this £5 special edition programme will be donated to the Christie NHS Foundation Trust in Manchester.

Corporate Fundraising Manager at The Christie charity, Danielle Carney told us: “We are so grateful that at this very sad time Patrick Cryne’s family have made this hugely generous gesture and everyone here at The Christie charity thanks them and the club very much. All donations, whether big or small, make such a difference to patients and their families and take us a step closer to a future free of cancer.”
