We welcome Huddersfield Town to Oakwell in the Sky Bet Championship for our Yorkshire derby on Saturday afternoon.
That means there’s another edition of GROVE STREET for you to enjoy reading and, as ever, it’s crammed with exclusive content.
Our cover star for the visit of the Terriers is someone who has represented both clubs. You guessed it, we sat down with JORDAN WILLIAMS, who reflects on his nine-year affiliation with Town and how he has benefitted from his exposure to first team football with the Reds.
The 22-year-old also gives his thoughts on our new Head Coach, Poya Asbaghi, and how the team is making strides on the training ground under his guidance.
Up next to face the series of wacky questions in our A-Z feature is ROMAL PALMER, and there are some interesting answers from the midfielder, not least his attempt to learn Spanish during lockdown.
The focus of our academy interview in this issue is KIEREN FLAVELL in an extended piece as he discusses his rehabilitation progress after injuring his ACL during our U18s Professional Development League game against Birmingham City back in February.
However, the young goalkeeper is well on the road to recovery and is hopeful of being back in competitive action within the next couple of months.
Club legend, BARRY MURPHY, pens his column once more, and he is full of praise for Asbaghi, who he believes has instilled a defensive solidity since arriving at Oakwell a couple of weeks ago.
In a special edition orange theme, we highlight the incredible continued work of BARNSLEY HOSPICE and there is also a story from Claire who knows first-hand the amazing care provided by the charity.
As usual, we have our traditional pages dedicated to the visitors from West Yorkshire, including an insight from the opposition corner and LEIGH EDWARDS’ column focusing on past Huddersfield gaffers.
Next to feature in NEIL RICHARDSON’s Unsung Heroes piece is former Reds defender, Scott Wiseman, who was with Barnsley between 2011 and 2014.
