We welcome Cardiff City to Oakwell on Wednesday evening for our Sky Bet Championship clash, which means there’s another edition of Grove Street up for grabs.

As ever, your matchday programme is filled with exclusive content, so what can you expect to enjoy reading in your Bluebirds issue?

Our cover star this time is JOSH BENSON, and he reflects on his first few months in South Yorkshire, which have been difficult on the pitch for Barnsley.

The 22-year-old midfielder also looks back on his football journey that led him to the Reds, from his time at Arsenal as a youngster before making his Premier League debut at Manchester City while with Burnley.

Heading down the age groups and there is an extended academy piece for this edition as we spoke to LUIS LACEY. The Liverpudlian full-back has been part of our youth set-up for almost a year and, like the rest of his teammates, is enjoying a productive campaign.

Following stints with Blackburn Rovers, Wigan Athletic and Manchester United, the 17-year-old has found a home here at Barnsley and is aiming to help our U18s secure a play-off spot at the end of the season.

Up next to take on our fun A-Z quiz is DEVANTE COLE, who provides us with a variety of interesting and quickfire answers.

Away from football, GROVE STREET visited FALCO LOUNGE, which is situated near the contemporary Glass Works complex. The trendy café bar provides a relaxing environment for you to eat and drink with friends and family, and the menu is definitely worth a sample with choices from burgers to tapas available – as well as cocktails after a certain time.

There’s an update from REDS IN THE COMMUNITY, with information regarding the upcoming Shadow Scholarship trials, while we also feature WESTON PARK CANCER CHARITY and their magnificent work which enables patients to travel to their headquarters in Sheffield free of charge.

As usual, BARRY MURPHY pens his column in the wake of our clash with Bournemouth at the weekend, and he reserves special praise for our academy graduates Matty Wolfe and Aiden Marsh.

We have our traditional pages dedicated to the visitors from South Wales, including an insight from the opposition corner and LEIGH EDWARDS’ Managing to Succeed piece, while NEIL RICHARDSON’s Unsung Hero for this issue focuses on former Reds defender ADAM JACKSON.

All of this and more in your Cardiff City edition of GROVE STREET, which is available from in and around Oakwell for just £3.
