We welcome Swansea City to South Yorkshire on Wednesday evening in the Sky Bet Championship for Poya Asbaghi’s first game at the helm.
There will be an edition of Grove Street available for you to get your hands on when you visit Oakwell and, as ever, it is jam-packed with exclusive content.
Our cover star for this issue is MADS ANDERSEN, who discusses our new Head Coach’s first couple of days at the club and his return to action after missing much of the season through injury.
The Great Dane also talks about his ambitions to earn an international call-up, citing teammate Michał Helik’s inclusion in the Poland set-up as inspiration with 12 months left until the FIFA 2022 World Cup in Qatar gets underway.
Up next to take on the variety of whacky questions in our popular A-Z feature is CALLUM STYLES and, as you’d expect, he delivers some intriguing answers including what three items he’d take with him on a desert island. Perhaps not entirely practical, but good for entertainment value, nonetheless.
There are two academy pieces to cast your eye over in this edition. Under the spotlight is U18s captain HARRISON NEJMAN, who reflects on his side’s unbeaten run that unfortunately came to an end at the weekend and the upcoming FA Youth Cup tie with Crystal Palace.
In addition, we have an U14s feature following their success in the Ian Kennedy Memorial Trophy a fortnight ago.
Away from football, GROVE STREET took a trip to the Glass Works and, specifically, MARKET KITCHEN to take a browse at the magnificent independent vendors on offer. It’s well worth a read and a visit if you want to sample the town’s up and coming food and drink venue.
Club legend BARRY MURPHY addresses supporters once more in his column and speaks positively about our new Head Coach, having met him for the first time on Monday morning.
We have the traditional pages dedicated to our visitors from South Wales including a Swans supporter in the opposition corner, while LEIGH EDWARDS’ column focuses on 10 of their previous managers.
NEIL RICHARDSON’s Unsung Heroes piece features former Reds midfielder Chris Lumsdon, who was at Oakwell from 2001 to 2004.
All of this and more for just £3!
