A THANK YOU, FROM THE TUNNICLIFFE FAMILY

10 January 2024

Following our New Year's Day fixture with Wigan Athletic, Reds supporter and long-serving Season Ticket Holder, Michael Tunnicliffe collapsed on Oakwell Lane. His nephew, also called Michael has asked us to pass on a big thank you to those fellow Reds who helped at the time.

"Following the Wigan game, as we were walking home he collapsed on Oakwell Lane. Michael was helped by both Barnsley and Wigan fans, along with paramedics and police, whom without doubt saved his life.

"People around the scene helped by providing first aid, calling 999, clearing the scene of traffic, providing lights and offering emotional to support to myself and my dad. Michael is receiving care in the intensive care unit at Barnsley Hospital. Our family would like to extend our thanks to all involved."

On behalf of all connected to our great club, we are thinking of Michael and the family and hope to see him back in the East Stand soon!
