A round-up of Barnsley FC-related stories from this week.
REDS TO WEAR HOSPICE SHIRTS UNTIL NEW YEAR
Barnsley Hospice will sponsor Barnsley FC’s shirts until the new year.
They take over from local firm Rapid Response, with the Reds having several different sponsors this season in blocks of games rather than one for the whole campaign.
The Reds wore the hospice logo for the first time in their FA Cup win at Bolton on Saturday. The hospice is not paying for the deal.
Supporters can have the hospice logo printed on their shirts, with all proceeds going to the charity.
