Barnsley presentation

Barnsley Odds

Barnsley FC odds are very popular to bet on, as with most teams in the English divisions. With Barnsley still playing up to their reputation of being a yo-yo team, odds on Barnsley staying up often offer value, with the club typically reasonably short priced for the drop.

So Barnsley relegation odds are common, but odds on Barnsley getting promoted shouldn’t be dismissed. In a league that has seen clubs such as Swansea, Bournemouth and Hull City climb through the divisions to play Premier League football, the Championship is certainly a league where anything can happen.

Barnsley manager betting odds can also be popular. Barnsley fans have seen ten different managers at the helm of their club in ten different seasons, so a change in manager is not a rare occurrence. As such, it’s worth keeping up to date with Barnsley FC manager news and Barnsley manager rumours to help you spot the value in Barnsley next manager odds.

History

Barnsley F.C are a professional football club based in South Yorkshire, currently competing in the Championship. They are one of a small number of teams who have played in all four professional English divisions, including one season in the Premier League, and have spent more seasons in the English second tier than any other side.

The history of Barnsley F.C begins in 1887. Tiverton Preedy, a local clergyman, founded the club and the team was known as Barnsley St. Peter’s. Three years after formation, the club joined the Sheffield and District League before moving to the Midland league in 1895. Two years later, the club dropped the St. Peter’s from its name and became Barnsley F.C.

In 1898, Barnsley joined the Football League. They established themselves as a Second Division side, with mid-table finishes in their first decade. In 1910, the club reached its first ever FA Cup Final, but they were beaten by Newcastle United. 

Two years later, though, and Barnsley went one step better, beating West Bromwich Albion to win their first, and to date last, FA Cup.

The Football League calendar was suspended for the duration of the First World War. Following its resumption, changes were made to the English football league system, including the increase of teams in the First Division. The number of teams competing in the First Division went from 20 to 22 and as Barnsley had finished third in the Second Division the season previously, they should have been entitled to one of those extra First Division places. Instead, a ballot was performed and Arsenal were given the place, despite finishing lower down the table than Barnsley. It was later alleged that the Arsenal chairman Henry Norris had bribed members to vote for his club, regardless of the truth of those allegations, Barnsley wouldn’t see top flight football for 78 years.

Barnsley remained a Second Division team, flirting with promotion and enduring brushes with relegation in equal measure. In the 1931/1932 season, Barnsley couldn’t escaped relegation any longer, and were demoted to the third tier of English football, then known as the Third Division North. 

Their third tier status didn’t last long though, two seasons after relegation Barnsley won the Third Division North title and with it promotion back to the Second Division.

However, Barnsley began to grow a reputation as being a ‘yo-yo’ club, when in the 1937/1938 season they were relegated again. This time though, their time in the Third Division North was even shorter, gaining immediate promotion with another third tier title.

The Football League calendar was suspended once more with the onset of the Second World War. When it resumed for the 1946/1947 season, Barnsley had established themselves once more as a steady Second Division club. There were no serious promotion pushes, but Barnsley were comfortable in the second tier, with consistent mid-table finishes.

That was until the 1952/1953 season when Barnsley suffered another relegation. Again, though, their time in the Third Division North was short lived, with another third tier title added two seasons later, the club were reinstated into second division football.

The Third Division North and the Third Division South were reorganised and a Third Division proper was formed along with a Fourth Division. Barnsley found themselves in the Third Division in the 1959/1960 season, following a 22nd place finish in the Second Division the season previously.

This time, there was no quick return for Barnsley. Instead, after six seasons in the Third Division, the club were relegated again. Two consecutive 16th placed finishes were achieved in the Fourth Division before a 2nd place finish saw the club reclaim their Third Division status.

However, Barnsley continued to live up to their reputation of being a yo-yo club, when after four seasons in the third tier the club found itself in the Fourth Division once more. Their second Fourth Division spell lasted for seven seasons, until promotion was achieved in the 1978/1979 season. 

Another promotion followed two seasons later, and the 1981/1982 season was the first of 16 consecutive second tier campaigns for Barnsley. 

During the 1984/1985 season, Barnsley reached the FA Cup quarter finals, but this was the highlight of a steady but largely uneventful following decade.

For the 1992/1993 season, the layout of the divisions in English football changed. The Premier League was introduced and this led to changes in the Football League. The Second Division became Division One, the Third Division in Division Two and the Fourth Division Division Three. 

Barnsley continued with their Division One status, and in the 1996/1997 season Barnsley achieved promotion to the top flight for the first time in their history. Their time in the Premier League lasted for just one season though, a 19th place finish condemning Barnsley to an immediate relegation.

Two seasons later, Barnsley came very close to winning back a Premier League spot. A fourth place finish in Division One resulted in a play-off place, but they were beaten in the Final by Ipswich Town.

Subsequent financial issues almost led to the club being disbanded, with the club struggling with administration coupled with the high turnover of managers. This led to a relegation to Division Two in the 2001/2002 season. They almost suffered consecutive relegations, but Barnsley rallied to finish in 19th place in the league.

Two more seasons in England’s third tier (in 2004 renamed League One, with Division Three becoming League Two and Division One becoming the Championship) was followed by a play-off win in the 2005/2006 season. Barnsley also earned the distinction of being the last side to win a play-off final at the old Wembley before the stadium was closed for redevelopment when they beat Swansea City on penalties to earn a Championship place.

Barnsley spent eight consecutive seasons in the Championship, but the majority of their campaigns were spent fighting relegation.  This was a fight the club ultimately lost in 2013/2014, finishing second from bottom and sealing their return back to League One.

However, it was a one season stop in League One for Barnsley, when the club again achieved promotion via the play-offs. This time, Barnsley beat Millwall 3-1 in the play-off final. Barnsley started their 2016/2017 campaign back playing Championship football.

Crest

There have been seven alternative Barnsley F.C crests used by the club in its history. The club began to wear a badge on their kits regularly from 1986.

Before this time, Barnsley used the Barnsley Coat of Arms shield on official club documentation. 

During the 1960’s, whilst no actual badge was used on Barnsley kits, the shirts were embroidered with the initials B.F.C. Another Barnsley logo was also used that featured a bulldog called Toby Tyke inside a circle shape. A ‘Tyke’ is a nickname for a person from Yorkshire.

In 1986, a new Barnsley badge was designed. This badge featured a white rose, the rose of Yorkshire, sat above ‘Barnsley F.C’ enclosed in a shield shape. This badge was used until 1998.

In the following years, the club has made many, albeit slight, alterations to its club badge. For the 1998/1999 season, the shield shaped was discarded and instead the Yorkshire white rose and the club name were enclosed in a circle shape. The following season, the circle featured a ring around its circumference.

From 2000 to 2002, the circle shape was removed completely, leaving just the white rose and team name. The following year saw the reintroduction of a shield around the two features.

In 2003, the Barnsley crest changed completely. Featuring once again the Barnsley coat of arms, with an image of a miner on one side and a glass-blower on the other, representing the historic workers of Barnsley. 

In 2010, this crest was altered with the addition of a shield shape encasing the main image.

Colours

Barnsley are known for their red shirts, white shorts and red socks. This has been the standard Barnsley kit since 1901, apart from 1903, when blue shorts were worn, 1920 to 1927 and again from 1931 to 1936 when black socks were worn, and from 1973 to 1982 when white socks were consistently used. 

Since 1982, Barnsley have always worn their standard kit, aside from 1986 to 1989 when firstly white socks and then red shorts were worn by the Barnsley players.

Before 1901, Barnsley wore a kit of various colours and styles. As Barnsley St. Peters, from 1887 to 1889, the club wore blue shirts with brown sleeves, white shorts and brown socks. The following two years saw the Barnsley players wear brown and white striped shirts with white shorts and black socks. Then, from 1891 to 1897, the club wore blue and white striped shirts with dark blue shorts and dark blue socks.

When the club changed its name from Barnsley St. Peter’s to Barnsley, this blue and white striped shirt stayed with them. 1898 saw the first plain red shirt used, along with the same colour shorts and shirts used previously. This was the staple Barnsley kit until 1901, when white shorts and red socks were introduced.

Barnsley Stadium

The Barnsley F.C stadium is Oakwell. Barnsley have played their home football at this ground since their existence in 1887.

Barnsley F.C owned the stadium themselves up until 2003. After the club went into administration, Barnsley Council bought the ground to provide the funds to the football club to pay off debts and therefore keep their position in the Football League.

Oakwell’s current capacity is 23,009. The ground consists of four all seater stands, along with a corner stand.

The West Stand is a two-tiered stand and is also the only surviving stand from the original Oakwell.

The East Stand also features two-tiers, and was renovated in 1993. This stand replaced the original terrace called the Brewery Stand.

The CK Bennett Stand is single-tiered. It was previously known as the Pontefract Road End, and has also been called the ORA Stand or the Van Damme Stand.

The North Stand was the last part of the Barnsley stadium to be renovated. Another single tiered stand, this stand is usually reserved for away supporters.

The corner stand is now known as the Brittania Drilling Limited Corner Stand. This stand houses disabled facilities and executive boxes. Originally built in 1998, it was first known as The Welcome Windows Stand.

Supporters

The majority of Barnsley supporters hail from the town of Barnsley and other parts of Yorkshire. The club has a number of Barnsley supporters clubs throughout the country, the largest of which is the Barnsley F.C Supporters Trust. This group was formed in 2005, after the Barnsley F.C Supporters Society and the Official Barnsley F.C Supporters Club merged. This organisation maintains strong links with Barnsley F.C and communicates any fans issues, such as match day experiences or season ticket prices.

The Barnsley supporters are a vocal crowd with a mixture of songs sung on match days. 

Barnsley have rivalries with a number of Yorkshire rivals. The fiercest Yorkshire derbies featuring Barnsley are against Sheffield United, Sheffield Wednesday and Rotherham United.

Ownership

The current owner of Barnsley F.C is Patrick Cryne. The chairman is Maurice Watkins. Watkins became chairman of Barnsley in 2013.

Patrick Cryne became involved in Barnsley Football Club in 2003. Cryne and Peter Risdale, former Leeds United chairman, bought the club from John Dennis. Dennis had placed the club into administration the previous year and Barnsley F.C nearly went out of existence.

Stats

Barry Murphy is Barnsley Football Club’s all time leading appearance maker. Murphy made 569 appearances for the club from 1962 to 1978.

Barnsley’s leading goalscorer of all time is Ernie Hine. Hine scored a total of 131 goals over two spells at the club, from 1921 to 1926 and again from 1934 to 1938.

Barnsley’s biggest victory came in 1899. The club played Loughborough Town in the Second Division and beat them 9-0. The scoreline of 9-0 is also Barnsley’s record defeat, coming at the hands of Notts County in the Second Division in 1927

The highest home attendance a Barnsley side has played in front of is 40,255. This crowd number was achieved when Barnsley played Stoke City in the FA Cup in 1936.

Barnsley’s record transfer fee was paid in 1997 and 1999 when the club spent £1.5 million on Georgi Hristov from Partizan Belgrade, then Mike Sheron from Queens Park Rangers. The highest transfer fee Barnsley have ever received is £5 million, a fee paid by Swansea City for Alfie Mawson in 2016.

Barnsley Players

The current Barnsley F.C players list includes 25 first team players, supported by the Barnsley Academy squad.

Notable ex Barnsley football team players include Ronnie Glavin, Danny Blanchflower, Tommy Taylor, Neil Redfearn, Neil Shipperley, George Kerr and Paul Futcher.

Carl Tyler, Gwyn Thomas and Gerry Taggart are other Barnsley cult heroes.

In 1953, Tommy Taylor signed for Manchester United. The fee was £29,999, as Taylor didn’t want to be the country’s first £30,000 player.

Barnsley Manager

The current Barnsley FC manager is Paul Heckingbottom. He became permanent boss in 2016 after a successful spell as caretaker manager where he achieved promotion to the Championship. 

The longest serving manager in terms of years that Barnsley have had in their history is Angus Seed. He managed the club from 1937 to 1953, although from 1939 to 1945 no Football League matches were played.

Honours

Barnsley Football Club have won one major trophy in their history. The club won its first and so far last FA Cup in 1912.
