To get things kicked off, we can reveal the five individuals who were inducted by Barnsley FC and the Shortlist Panel.
During the summer of 2018, Barnsley Football Club sought to put together a small panel of individuals who would spend time together sifting through the proud history of our club. Their job? To devise a fit and fair entry system for the Oakwell Hall Of Fame.
During the shortlist panel's meeting, and after careful consideration in tandem with Barnsley Football Club, it was agreed that there would be three individuals who wouldn't be entered into the discussion, these would be the three initial inductees who would therefore become the first three members of the Oakwell Hall Of Fame:
It was also agreed that the Barnsley Football Club board of directors acting on behalf of the club would be allowed to induct any one individual of their choosing:
Finally, the shortlist panel all had one vote each following the agreed final cut of 25, and the winner of that vote would also be an initial inductee into the Oakwell Hall Of Fame:
Each profile page of the remaining 24 shortlisted individuals is available to read on the website and will outline the highlights of their careers, not just at Barnsley, but in general, giving supporters a real insight into why these men were nominated as well as perhaps an education into some of the true greats who graced the Oakwell stage.
Now, it’s over to you, the supporters to add one more name from the 24 left on the shortlist who will be revealed at the inaugural Oakwell Hall Of Fame awards ceremony to be held in the Copier Systems Legends Suite on Friday 12th October!
