Club Statement | Bobby Doyle

27 February 2019

Former Reds midfielder passed away on Tuesday 26th February.

Barnsley Football Club are saddened to inform supporters that former Reds midfielder Bobby Doyle has died at the age of 65. 

Signed from Scottish junior football back in December of 1972, after a successful trial period, Dumbarton-born Bobby Doyle was a skilful and entertaining footballer, who became a real fans favourite at Oakwell.

As well as winning the club's Player of the Year award for the 1974/75 season, he was also voted into the PFA’s Fourth Division team of that campaign and was an automatic choice for most of his Barnsley career, making 160 appearances, scoring 16 goals.

Our thoughts are with the friends and family of Bobby at this sad time.
