PREVIEW: Athersley Rec v Reds XI

12 July 2018

A Reds XI will take on Athersley Rec on Friday in a pre-season friendly.

Kick-off is at 7:30pm and the Barnsley side will be overseen by our U23s coach Martin Devaney.

Athersley finished 17th in the Northern Counties East Football League Premier Division last season, and rounded off the campaign with a 1-1 draw at home to runaway champions Pontefract Collieries.

Former Barnsley defender Luke Potter is in charge at Sheerien Park, where the Penguins claimed eight home wins last season.

The two sides also met in a friendly at this stage last year, with more than 600 people in attendance as a Barnsley XI ran out 2-1 winners.

Tickets for this year’s fixture are available to purchase from £5 for adults and £3 for concessions, and under-5s can go for free. Just contact Pete Goodlad on: 07910121070.

Alternatively, you can head to Sheerien Park on Friday evening and pay on the gate. Prices will be £6 for adults and £4 for concessions.
