Plea to help ailing trader BARNSLEY Market bosses have been asked to write off more than £7,000 of debt for unpaid rent from a struggling trader as the council is accused of failing to ensure the business was able to meet the terms of its lease. The Barnsley branch of the National Market Traders Federation has now stepped in to represent the trader, who was generating too little income to cover rent after the Glass Works complex opened last year. They have asked that the debt be cleared on the grounds Barnsley Council should have done more to ensure the business was robust enough to meet its financial obligations. Barnsley Council has declined to comment on an individual case but insists the Glass Works is developing well, with more traders moving in as increasing numbers of stalls have become available. NMTF Barnsley group spokesman Keiron Knight claimed the council had offered a settlement of £350 a month to clear the arrears, without offering an explanation as to how that figure had been calculated. “The council say they are socially responsible, but they have let this trader sign a lease they could not afford,” he said. “What sort of due diligence was done

to check whether it was affordable? “They have made an offer of what they would accept to pay off the debt, but it is a lot of money for someone who is clearly already struggling badly.” The NMTF has now suggested to the council that the debt should be cancelled on the grounds of ‘bad practice’ from the council. Council cabinet member Coun Tim Cheetham said: “Now that we’ve got more stalls available downstairs, some existing market traders have chosen to move locations. All traders in the market were given the option to move stalls if they wished. “As a responsible landlord, the council will always work with our fantastic market traders to make their businesses and the market a success which it has been since opening. “We’ve recently entered Great British High Steet’s Rising Star category and the success of our market is one of the reasons why we wanted to enter. Our traders are helping Barnsley buck the trend – footfall is up and long may that continue. “Barnsley Market is buzzing and it’s all down to our brilliant traders and customers.” n Provided by the Local Democracy Reporting Service.

Car crash at zebra crossing A MAN has been charged with burglary and aggravated vehicle taking after allegedly stealing a vehicle. In the early hours of Saturday morning a white BMW was stolen from outside a house in Barnsley following a burglary at the same address. The car was later seen in Doncaster and as the driver tried to turn right, it collided with the lights and then a bollard on a zebra crossing, forcing the car briefly onto two wheels, before coming to rest against a fence. The driver and two passengers made off on foot and following a brief pursuit one man was apprehended.

Life is sweet – desserts business among four new Market outlets THREE existing Barnsley business leaders have signed up to Market Kitchen – the independent food court housed within The Glass Works. Nick Smark, a trader on Barnsley Market, will open Dolly’s Desserts at the complex in either late September or early October. He will be joined by Holy Cow – a burger bar – operated by Dan Sharp, owner of 00Bar in the Arcade. Dan will also bring MEET, a new bar and restaurant, to the wider Glass Works before its completion in 2021. Dolly’s Desserts and Holy Cow will be joined by Daddy Beanz – a coffee shop owned by Mike Breeze, who already trades the business on Penistone Market. It roasts its own beans in Barnsley, and also provides world teas and superfood smoothies. A fourth business – Caribbean food specialists Jamaican King – will be brought to Market Kitchen by Leicesterbased John Palmer. The Glass Works’ independent food court will house 11 units in total, including the three traditional market cafes, Paul’s Place, Hilton’s Cafe and

Four more names will be announced in the coming weeks, including three new food outlets and a bar. Coun Tim Cheetham, cabinet spokesman, said: “Barnsley’s independent scene is buzzing and we’re delighted to be welcoming four new businesses to the town centre and The Glass Works. “Market Kitchen will be the town’s own independent food

court. We already have three fantastic cafes trading there and they’ll be joined by more names when Market Kitchen fully opens. “We’re thrilled that two existing market traders – one from The Glass Works market and the other from Penistone – are committing to Market Kitchen with Dolly’s Desserts and Daddy Beanz, and we’re happy that the owner of 00Bar is expanding into The Glass Works with first, Holy Cow,

It’s an exciting offer that will be joined by more diverse food outlets. “There will be something for everyone to enjoy in Market Kitchen. “The Glass Works, Barnsley Market and the wider town centre is rife with investment, and Market Kitchen will only add to that.”

Pupils congratulated AN MP spoke at an event to celebrate the achievements of pupils at a secondary school. Stephanie Peacock, MP for Barnsley East, attended the Barnsley Academy celebratory breakfast. The event, held to celebrate the achievements of the Academy’s students, was also attended by councillors Wayne Johnson and John Clarke, and the South Yorkshire Police Commander for Barnsley Scott Green. During her speech, Stephanie

congratulated the students on their success, spoke about the importance of hard work in achieving your goals, and spoke about the real difference young people here in Barnsley can make in their communities. “It was a real pleasure to attend the celebratory breakfast,” said Stephanie. “It was great to meet so many talented, dedicated young people, and to hear about their outstanding achievements over the last year.”

Post office reopens GRIMETHORPE Post Office has reopened following a nine-week closure after five masked robbers blew its cash machine out of the wall in a terrifying night-time raid. Police said a ‘large amount’ of money was stolen during the incident, which happened at about 1.40am on May 1, but a decision was taken for the High Street building to close because its structure was weakened as a result of the blast. Postmistress Stella Milner and her husband, David (above), have run the shop for 30 years in August and were woken by a tapping sound they

heard – a noise Stella thought was someone waiting for cash. “It’s not an uncommon noise as the cash machine had a metal surround,” said Stella. “I’d regularly hear people tapping while they waited but as soon as David got out of bed there was an explosion. “Literally as soon as he stood up there was a bang. The first feeling was of absolute shock. “It was horrendous, so traumatic and devastating for us, not only because it’s the first incident we’ve had in almost 30 years but also as it’s our livelihood.”

Home rule for football team New police hub in heart of the town

BARNSLEY could be home to the first purpose-built stadium for female footballers in the UK if a Barnsley Women’s FC proposal for a £4m to £5m development is successful. The Reds, who are currently based at Oakwell, have submitted plans to the council to build a 2,500-capacity stadium and training facility on a site off Broadway which used to be football fields used by Kingstone School. The development would also include up to eight five-a-side pitches, with the club hoping to finish construction by late next year. Barnsley Central MP Dan Jarvis, said: “Following regular contact with representatives from Barnsley Women’s Football Club, I have been encouraged to hear about the proposals to bring the UK’s first purpose-built women’s football stadium to our town. “This represents an amazing opportunity for our young women and girls who play, or may want to play football. “It would lead the way in providing state of the art facilities, while promoting healthy living through participation in sport. “The facilities would be a fantastic resource for the club, Barnsley and Yorkshire as a whole, and I look forward to working with the club to support their plans.” The Chronicle revealed last week that two sites on Broadway were being looked at as possible locations for the new 900-pupil Trinity Academy school. Concerns have been raised that, with Horizon School already nearby, another school would increase the traffic problems in the area. Barnsley Women’s FC owner Steve Maddock said: “We would be willing to share the site with a school. “Our training sessions and games would take place in the evenings and on weekdays so would not add much to the traffic. “We think this is a fantastic opportunity to provide something truly unique and to lead the way in women’s football.” Coun Tim Cheetham, cabinet spokesman for regeneration and culture, is also supportive of the Reds’ plans. He said: “The council works closely with all our local sports clubs and, wherever possible, we utilise our resources to facilitate their growth. “We are extremely encouraged that Barnsley Women’s Football Club have such aspirations and hope that this will help continue the recent momentum brought about by such a successful World Cup. “Like the council, they are an ambitious organisation and are looking to make Barnsley the focus of investment and success. “We are very early in the process of considering a range of options, including potential relocation, and are willing to work closely with the club to undertake necessary due diligence so that the club can be self-sufficient and benefit our community for generations to come.”

Parking up for award TWO parks in Barnsley are now up on a public vote to help find the nation’s favourite local park. The Fields in Trust UK’s Best Park, 2019 awards has received 364 public nominations for parks and green spaces across the UK – with 30 of these in the Yorkshire and Humber region. Fields in Trust is a charity that support parks and green spaces by protecting them. And two of the parks nominated are in the Barnsley borough, Elsecar Park and Thurnscoe Memorial Park. Elsecar Park, in Armroyd Lane, is open daily from dawn to

dusk. The park has a children’s play area, multi-use games area, cafe, toilets, a nine hole pitch-and-putt course, bandstand, sand pit, picnic area and storytelling circle. It also has a reservoir, local nature reserve, bike hide and pond dipping pool. The Trans Pennine Trail also runs through the reserve. Thurnscoe Memorial Park, on High Street, Thurnscoe, features a multi-use games area, war memorial, gardens, a friends group and is located next to Hickleton Sports Ground, which offers a sports court, bowling and football. To vote, visit www.

TOWN centre-based police officers will move to a more prominent location at the heart of the Glass Works following the regeneration’s completion, according to a report. The current team, housed at Churchfield station, is one of six hubs across the borough, but it’s thought the short move will provide shoppers with more reassurance. The town centre’s regeneration, which is costing about £180m, is due to finish in 2021 but the police say the new hub will result in more visibility being provided – an aspect of the policing model that’s previously been criticised at crime meetings held in the town. Spice abuse has been an issue in the last 12 months, while burglaries and antisocial behaviour within the town centre area have also been problematic, although police bosses stress that all three have been reduced this year. The report said: “The Glass Works is an iconic new development in the heart of Barnsley town centre. Building on the strength of existing relationship between South Yorkshire Police in Barnsley and the council, we will be housing both our town centre team and student officer assessment unit within the Glass Works, which will see a significant uplift in visibility within the town centre. “The default working methodology for our neighbourhood policing teams is now, engagement, visibility and reassurance through enforcement. “This reflects the views of our communities from surveys and allows us to impact on those issues through the warranted powers of our police officers. “Barnsley remains at the forefront of neighbourhood policing via its teams and the successful multi-agency Safer Neighbourhood Service (SNS), embedding early intervention at a local level through to tackling complex and multiple needs.” n POLICE have vowed to continue targeting areas blighted by illegal off-road bikers after the latest action day. Operation Lapel, which was launched in Barnsley last year due to the high volume of complaints from residents relating to motorbikes and quads, involved police and council officers. The Trans Pennine Trail, off Bradberry Balk Lane, Wombwell Woods and Bolton pit stacks were all visited by a team of off-road officers from the police, while the council’s drone was also deployed.

n ON THE BALL: Reds Report trio Rich Shepherd, Michael Shepherd and Chris Ridyard with friend of the show Josh Wale, Barnsley’s British boxing champion.

Boxer Josh in football fund-raiser A FOOTBALL match has helped to raise £1,200 for a mental health charity. The match – which was held at Thomas Rotherham College last Saturday – was between friends and members of The Reds Report podcast, along with the coaching team and staff from Barnsley Women’s Football Club, and staff and former members of Wales High School in Rotherham. The event was organised by Chris Ridyard, of Wath-uponDearne and his friend Luke Pendlebury, who say they were inspired by BBC Radio Sheffield sports journalist Adam Oxley. Adam took part in a sponsored walk to raise funds for the mental health charity Mind, and passed through Barnsley, where Chris, 31, joined him for part of the walk.

“It all went from there really,” said Chris. “The inspiration came from Adam’s journey so we organised the match between The Reds Report and Wales High School. “The school team was made up of teachers, staff and former pupils – even the head teacher played. “We chose Mind as I have had a few problems with mental health and the local Mind branch is Rotherham/Barnsley which fits perfectly as the match was Rotherham versus Barnsley. “The game was great and there were 17 or 18 players on each side and the whole thing just turned out really well.” On The Reds Report team was Barnsley boxer Josh Wale, who played after taking part in a bout the night before.

“Josh is a mate of mine and I know him as we both used to go to Wath Comprehensive,” said Chris. “He is a great guy and does a lot of work with kids in schools. “He had his match the night before and was supposed to be managing and not playing, but as he won in the first round and had no injuries, we swapped. “I managed the game and he played.” The match has so far raised £1,200 for Mind as players paid to take part and some were sponsored by local businesses and groups. Chris said there will be an event on September 13 in Todwick Village Hall to present a cheque to Mind and also possibly raise further funds.

Park campaigners vow to seek judicial review A JUDICIAL review is being pursued by campaigners after Barnsley Council’s ruling cabinet members voted in favour of creating a one-way road system to alleviate traffic – despite almost 3,000 objections being lodged. The council, whose planning board awarded permission for the controversial scheme off Dodworth Road before Christmas, had a statutory obligation to consult with the public as its plan impacts Penny Pie Park, land designated as public open space. More than 2,700 people signed a petition against the new road, while another 105 objections were submitted as part of the land appropriation consultation which was required as part of the greenspace – a total of 1.133 hectares – will become highway. The long-running battle appeared to have ended last week when cabinet members, who were watched by campaigners at Barnsley Town Hall, unanimously voted in favour of the scheme and said its use could be altered. The council has not yet identified a start date for the major project, which will result in a loop road being created, but campaigners have vowed to continue their fight and have set their sights on securing a High Court date. Coun Hannah Kitching, who backed the campaigners, told the Chronicle

the council had ‘failed its people’ by ‘not listening’. She said: “The short-term aim is to raise cash for legal fees so we can pursue a judicial review – the council identified Penny Pie Park as public open land in its local plan (a document which sets out future growth and land uses) just seven months ago and now they’ve decided to backtrack on that. They’ve been the judge and jury in this case. They had to prove that there was a case to alter its land so it could be used for highway purposes – they’ve simply not done that and ignored several thousand people in the process. “Other councils are investing in active travel and greener transport options, but our council is building bigger roads in front of their biggest secondary school, Horizon Community College. “Hundreds of their kids currently walk home across Penny Pie Park and soon they will have to cross six lanes of traffic. “They’re also putting a children’s play area next to a huge traffic system, increasing their exposure to air pollution. I’m not surprised with the decision but I am saddened and frankly disgusted. “They should be utterly ashamed for appearing to not care about the environment, nor the health and wellbeing of our children. We feel like we’ve got a good case, especially

thanks to the council’s own Local Plan’s contents, and we won’t stop until the diggers arrive.” Improvements to nearby Pogmoor and Sugden’s recreation grounds will be made by the council, while Penny Pie Park’s playing equipment will be re-sited elsewhere on its land. As campaigners held a last-ditch protest outside the town hall in a bid to sway members’ minds, Peter Giles, of the Save Penny Pie Park action group, slept outside the venue on Tuesday night. Council leader Sir Steve Houghton said: “It’s clearly controversial and there’s no getting away from that – the campaigners have been determined and resilient and we recognise the objections raised. “It’s been the subject of many debates by both the cabinet and planning department and while there’s been a lot of objections, there’s also been lots in favour. “The trees which will be lost will be replaced, and other greenspaces near the site will be improved. Dodworth Road is a major route into the town centre and for years something has needed to be done. “It was never going to be an easy decision but if we did not decide to act this would impact the wider economy. Congestion will continue to grow and the 36 other options we looked at were ruled out for various reasons.”

Duncan dancing his way to target A DETERMINED volunteer who set himself the task of raising enough money to fund a Macmillan nurse for a year is hoping to reach that target during his latest event. Duncan Owen-Elmer began fund-raising for Macmillan Cancer Support two-and-ahalf years ago. It costs £53,000 to fund a Macmillan nurse for a year. Initially, Duncan aimed to reach his target by the end of 2020. But he is only £1,900 short, and coud raise that amount through a dance-off to be held on Friday July 26 at The Grey Horse pub on Kensington Road from 8.30pm onwards. “I’ve never danced before

in my life,” explained 66-year-old Duncan. “But the landlord of the pub said if I came along and gave it a go, he’d donate some money. “That’s what I’m going to do, and I’m hoping there will be some people on the evening who’ll join in. “The idea has kind of snowballed from a small dance into a big Macmillan evening. “The main thing is for me to be dancing and just making an idiot of myself really. “On the night there’s going to be an auction and a raffle too. “We always add up the total as we collect and we’ll have an ongoing figure.

“So on the night, if we do reach the target, then we’ll be able to announce it there and then. “If I manage to get enough for one nurse, then I’ll keep going for nurse number two while the fund-raising is going well. “I’ve been fund-raising for nearly three years now, but it didn’t kick-off properly until last year. “We didn’t expect to reach our total until 2020, and I’m so happy I’m nearly there well ahead of time.” The Macmillan nurses supported Duncan and his two daughters after his first wife was diagnosed with a brain tumour, and he decided he wanted to give something back.

Operation Slowdown will have public help DANGER roads identified by the public will be targeted by police as part of an operation to reduce drivers’ speeds in Barnsley following a rise in complaints. The project – dubbed Operation Slowdown – will be led by an officer from South Yorkshire Police’s roads policing group and involve each of the town’s six neighbourhood hubs. Crime meetings held by the teams – based in Barnsley town centre, Cudworth, Goldthorpe, Kendray, Penistone and Royston – are now being used to gather locations of where speeding is said to be most prevalent. Roads identified at last month’s meetings include Huddersfield Road, Darton; Pontefract Road, Cudworth; Sandy Bridge Lane, Shafton; Burton Road, Monk Bretton; Common Road, Brierley; Harborough Hill Road, Barnsley and Copster Lane, Oxspring. Although police are increasing their anti-speeding operations as part of the scheme and getting residents involved by training them up on how to use a speed gun, they have said prosecutions will be a last resort in the project’s infancy and only be pursued if a driver’s speed is far in excess of the limit. A report said: “Each neighbourhood team now has a roads policing group officer as a single point of contact to enhance local problem-solving for local road safety priorities. “Operation Slowdown is the force’s initiative to address local

concerns of speeding vehicles at a neighbourhood level. The emphasis is on education, promoting road safety and changing attitudes to speeding for drivers as opposed to enforcement, where appropriate.” A perceived high crash rate on certain roads has predominately been down to driver error, the force says, and it’s hoped the educational aspect will be seen as a positive step forward. A total of 608 collisions were recorded across the town last year – down by 15 per cent on the previous year – while Barnsley has averaged six road deaths per year over the last three years. Residents have also been encouraged to report hotspots to the South Yorkshire Safety Camera Partnership in the hope of securing better signage, including signs warning about speed cameras working in the area, which could be installed. However, complaints have been received by the police that not enough is being done to combat long-running speeding concerns, resulting in the force receiving criticism following several high-profile deaths in Barnsley last year. Dave North, chairman of Shafton Parish Council, identified Sandy Bridge Lane in the village as one of the worst-hit blackspots for speeding and subsequent crashes. “We’ve done all we can to secure anti-speeding measures over the years but we’re still wit-

nessing accidents,” he added. “We’ve had site meetings with highways bosses and we feel like the obvious danger has failed to be recognised. “All we can do is keep complaining about speed and its devastating impacts. Sandy Bridge Lane has always concerned us because drivers simply drive too fast but there are hundreds of hotspots right across Barnsley. “Speeding affects communities and all we want is for something to happen in order to deter motorists from doing so.” Confusion over on-the-border routes such as Wakefield Road, Staincross and Whams Road, Crow Edge are set to receive joint work from both South and West Yorkshire forces after both were identified as areas of concern. Sgt Dave Baines added: “Wakefield Road has been an issue for us because the speeding is taking place after the speed camera towards Newmillerdam. It’s where the boundary is and the Barnsley borough ends after the last house, which is a hundred or so yards past the camera, and then it’s taken over by West Yorkshire Police. It goes to a 50mph zone but we’re told some vehicles are exceeding that, but it’s something we can ask our colleagues over the border to look at. “It’s a relatively straight stretch on the part of the road so there’s plenty of space available, and two lay-bys for a camera van to sit.”

New town centre supermarket in the offing PLANS to build a new supermarket on the edge of the town centre resurfaced this week. Retailer Aldi received permission to build a store next to Wickes on Old Mill Lane – on the former National Grid site – more than two years ago.

A planning document is now seeking to alter the proposed building’s layout in order to create an improved pedestrian link to the site’s south-west corner. The development, which is expected to create 40 new jobs,

Tackle causes of violent crime says police chief SOUTH Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner Dr Alan Billings has been sharing information about the ‘public health’ approach to tackling violent crime – which sees the issue treated as a disease – at a Home Office sponsored event. South Yorkshire is one of several metropolitan areas which have been affected by a surge in violent crime, in particular knife attacks, in recent years and a number of different strategies are being used to tackle the problem. The aim of a regional event, organised between the Home Office and the PCC for West Yorkshire, was to bring together partners from across the public sector which will all be involved in work to minimise and prevent serious crime. Home Secretary, Sajid Javid is considering introducing a legal duty for the authorities to take the ‘public health’ approach to answering the problem, alongside other work from central government. Dr Billings recently visited Glasgow to look at the successful implementation of the city’s Serious Violence Reduction Unit more than ten years ago and the success the scheme has had in reducing the number of shootings and stabbings. “The public health approach treats violent crime as if it were a disease,” he explained. “The way to stop a disease spreading is by tacking the causes, not just dealing with those already infected. “It’s about prevention as much as cure. “The lesson of this approach is that

PEOPLE can now opt to receive free weekly reminders to test their smoke alarms. South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue is offering a service where people can agree to receive weekly reminders to check their alarms. Checking a smoke alarm is quick and can potentially save lives and limit property damage. “We’ve been asking people to regularly test their smoke alarms for quite some time now, but we’re very aware that everyone has extremely busy lives,” said station manager, Matt Gillatt.

“Our dream is that everyone tests their smoke alarm each week, without fail, and our hope is that this reminder service helps bring us closer to fulfilling that dream. “Whilst protecting life is what we’re here for, it’s important to remember that getting hurt isn’t the only risk that fire poses. A house fire, even where nobody is involved, can turn your life around and be a huge inconvenience. I’d highly recommend people take a few minutes to opt into these reminders and, when you get them each week, act on them.” You can sign up for the free reminders at

Cheaper travel for young people By Anya Mitchell YOUNG people are being urged to apply for a free travel pass. South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE) is urging teenagers from 16-18 to apply for a free travel pass and enjoy the benefit of cheaper fares on public transport. The passes are valid all year round. Tim Taylor, director of customer service at SYPTE, said: “The 16-18


if you are going to get to the roots of why people get caught up in violence and keep them away from it, you need a range of partners to help, not just the police. “If organisations in the public, private and voluntary sectors work together to tackle such issues as domestic violence, alcohol and drug abuse, the lack of youth activities and opportunities at an early stage, and provide the right level of support and advice for families, I believe many young people can be steered away from a life involving serious violence. n HITTING THE RIGHT NOTE: The Mayor of Barnsley Coun Pauline Markham and her consort Larry Markham attended the Gawber Sing held at St Thomas Church, “The government has recognised Gawber. It was led by the Grimethorpe and District Brass Band. The collection totalled £236 which was split between band and church. The service was a tribute the need for funding to tackle these to mark 75 years since the D-Day landings. issues, though that funding will need to be sustained over future years. “We are determined to make a difference and see a serious reduction in violent crime across South Yorkshire.” The event, held at the Royal Armouries in Leeds, was organised by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) for West Yorkshire, in conjunction with the Home Office. As well as Dr Billings, speakers at the event included Chief Superintendent Una Jennings, from South Yorkshire Police, Nick Hunt, Head of the Serious Violence Unit at the Home Office, Mark BurnsWilliamson, Police and Crime Commissioner for West Yorkshire and Victoria Atkins, Minister for Crime, Safeguarding and Vulnerability. n Provided by the Local Democracy Reporting Service.

Streisand is celebrated in stunning new production, Great to see community and you can win tickets This was the WAB week...

enjoy a great weekend WHAT a fantastic weekend we have had. It was great to see Library @ The Lightbox officially open and see so many of you there eager to take a look around. If you picked up the Chronicle this week you would have read that I thought about the tour and what I feel the new library will bring to town. The parade was equally as amazing. The excitement and the atmosphere was yet again fantastic. It’s always lovely to see so many people in the town centre and enjoying the amazing things Barnsley has to offer.

The big weekend has been a prime example of the community coming together and it makes me feel proud to live in such a fantastic place. We may have our flaws but what town doesn’t? Barnsley is shaping up well. If you didn’t hear about the cows roaming the road on Pye Avenue last week you’ve definitely been living under a rock. Receiving the video footage made my week, but the best part was 100 per cent the comments from you guys. I don’t normally do this, but here is a round up some of my favourites...

Tonge delighted at new deal ASSISTANT head coach Dale Tonge is delighted to have signed a new long-term contract with Barnsley FC and is now focused on making sure a younger and new-look side is ready for the ‘big step up’ to the Championship. The 34-year-old from Goldthorpe was Daniel Stendel’s assistant from January until the season ended in promotion from League One in May and has now had that temporary role made permanent. Tonge said: “It’s a bit of a cliche, but to be part of the first-team staff is a dream come true. When I joined the academy as a coach, I didn’t expect it to happen so quickly, but I came in in January and, after the success we had as a club, I am glad that the gaffer wanted to keep me with the first team.”

While Tonge has stayed, goalkeeper and captain Adam Davies has left the club along with centre-backs Liam Lindsay and Ethan Pinnock. The coach said: “I don’t think anyone can deny they are three massive losses. “They were three players who played nearly every minute of every game – the captain and two leaders at the back. “But, as we said last season when players were missing, it’s an opportunity for someone else to stand up. “It’s how the club runs, it’s how our philosophy is built. It’s an opportunity for new signings to come in. We have signed some very, very good players. It’s our job now to prepare them as much as we can for the Championship and be on the front foot from the get-go.”

Of all the eight new faces to arrive at Oakwell this summer, only goalkeepers Brad Collins and Sami Radlinger are older than 21. Tonge said: “We have probably got a younger squad at the minute than the one we had last season. “It was about 22 last year and it’s even lower now. These young boys have got to learn quickly. It’s our jobs to help them develop and learn.” The Reds have also brought in centre-backs Bambo Diaby, Mads Andersen, Aapo Halme and Toby Sibbick, midfielder Luke Thomas and winger Mallik Wilks. Barnsley were 4-2 winners over Toulon in a friendly which formed part of a week-long training camp in France, with Cauley Woodrow scoring a hat-trick.

Small is beautiful as family pull the pints at their very own bar WAB History takes a look through the archives at WAB news from years gone by. This week, we flash back to what hit the headlines in July 2012... July 11 Family Opens Barnsley’s Smallest Bar A GOOD-HUMOURED family have spent two years building what they think is Barnsley’s smallest bar. The Tate family, from Ardsley, have converted their garage into ‘Tate’s Bar’ which has a full size bandit, a mini wurlitzer, two beer pumps and all the spirits, flashing lights and even a sign. Dad Graham, a taxi driver, said the grand opening last night was a family affair with wife Tracy pulling the first pint and son Aaron drinking it. He said: “I’m throwing down the challenge now – I reckon we’ve got Barnsley’s smallest bar. It seats a grand total of three. “We’ve been at it for nearly two years now, doing bits here and there. So it was nice to finally get it open, all my mates are wanting to come and try it now.” July 12 Town Centre Development Plans Up For Discussion THE VISION to redevelop the town centre is to be put to residents to give their views. Councillors will meet next week to approve a draft plan to be sent out for consultation – it includes 14 development sites. Coun Linda Burgess said: “This is a very important planning document for the future of the town centre. I hope that as many people as possible will take the opportunity to give their views

once the consultation begins.” A formal consultation period is scheduled to run from early August to the end of September. July 23 X-Men Actor Comes To Barnsley FAMOUS actor Sir Patrick Stewart will be in Barnsley tomorrow for graduation day. Students from University Campus Barnsley will be having a ceremony in The Civic and there will be a procession of 85 graduates in their robes and academic headgear walking from the University Campus to the venue. Sir Patrick Stewart whose film roles include ‘Star Trek’ and ‘The X-Men’ is the Chancellor of the University Campus Barnsley, which is part of the University of Huddersfield. Sir Patrick will hand out awards to a total of 221 students at the ceremonies.
