With our Sky Bet Championship clash against Middlesbrough just around the corner, we have another edition of Grove Street to get your hands on.
As ever, it is crammed with more intriguing content for you to enjoy reading as we continue to deliver one of the best matchday programmes in the country (if we do say so ourselves).
There are two feature length articles for you to sink your teeth into, with our cover star BRAD COLLINS first up as he discusses the past few months and his return to first team action after claiming a starting berth.
Our stopper has been in impervious form since being reinstated to league action and Valérien Ismaël has utilised him to perfection in the ‘sweeper-keeper’ role. The 23-year-old talks about his duties on the pitch, how it impacts the rest of the team and, of course, our incredible recent run of form.
GROVE STREET also sat down with JOSEPH LAUMANN in a first big interview with our assistant coach since he arrived at Oakwell along with Ismaël in October.
He tells us all about his football journey, from growing up in Morocco, moving to Germany at a young age, playing for Schalke 04 under Ralph Rangnick and footballing experiences in Cyprus and Vietnam before beginning his coaching career. Definitely well worth a read!
We go behind the scenes with Academy Secretary JENNY PEAD to find out more about her day-to-day role at the club and how she has adjusted to life in South Yorkshire since joining the Reds back in November.
Up next to take on our TEN QUESTIONS challenge is U18s striker NEWTON SILA-CONDE. It’s a tough one this week, but he still manages to register a respectable score. Think you can beat it? Pick up your copy of GROVE STREET and find out.
Our traditional contributors return as NEIL RICHARDSON depicts Barnsley legend STEVE AGNEW in his 250 CLUB piece, while LEIGH EDWARDS’ HOMEGROWN HEROES column features as part of five pages dedicated to the visitors from Teesside.
