On this day 26 years ago… there was a heck of a party starting down at Oakwell.

Danny Wilson’s Barnsley FC had just made it to the promised land: The Premiership.

A 2-0 victory over Bradford City sealed promotion for The Reds’ one and only season ever in the top flight of English football.

Paul Wilkinson and Clint Marcelle entered their names into Oakwell folklore but everyone was a hero in red that season.

To celebrate we have unearthed 26 pictures from that day. Some will have never been seen before.
