Hyman's dedication to her sport and her impressive achievements continue to inspire athletes and fans alike, cementing her legacy as a true British sporting hero.

Brunt, a prominent English cricketer, stands as a shining star in the world of women's cricket. Born in Barnsley, Brunt's exceptional skills as a fast bowler and all-rounder have made her a pivotal figure in the England women's cricket team. With a career spanning over a decade, she has played a significant role in multiple victories for her team, including Ashes triumphs and ICC tournament successes.


Beyond her impressive on-field performances, Brunt's passion for the game and her dedication to pushing the boundaries of women's cricket have helped elevate the sport's profile globally. Her contributions to the game continue to inspire young cricketers and pave the way for greater recognition and opportunities for women in cricket.

A Barnsley-born boxer, Simpson is an exciting talent in the super middleweight who has an unbeaten record since turning professional in 2019.


Simpson is an avid supporter of the Reds, often seen at Oakwell backing the team and next fights on Saturday 30 September at York Hall, London against Germaine Brown.

Stead had a successful career spanning various levels of English football. With stints at clubs like Huddersfield Town, Blackburn Rovers, and Notts County, he showcased his scoring prowess and footballing intelligence. Known for his versatility and commitment on the pitch, Stead's contributions have earned him a place in the hearts of fans and a reputation as a reliable and hardworking player.


His dedication to the sport and his positive attitude continue to make him a respected figure both on and off the field and is now the current Assistant Coach with the Men's First Team.
