PETER GILLOTT | 1935 - 2021

28 January 2021

We are saddened to learn of the passing of former Reds full-back Peter Gillott.

Following a battle with dementia, it's with great sadness that former Barnsley Football Club defender Peter Gillott has passed away. 

A child of World War II, Peter was Barnsley born and bred and began his footballing journey with Worsborough before being snapped up by the Reds in 1953. 

Gillott made just a handful of appearances for his hometown club before making a move to Chelmsford City where he would create a real legacy in Essex, going on to make 376 appearances for the club. 

A youth international with England, Peter remained a supporter of his beloved Barnsley FC right until the end, wearing his Reds shirt in his final moments. 

Our thoughts as a Club are with Peter's family, friends and loved ones at this difficult time.

Once A Red, Always A Red
