The tykes target challenge is sponsored by the Supporters Trust, Trustsport and the Full House Pub and is the half time game, in which a junior Barnsley Supporter challenges a Junior from the opposition to a penalty shoot out with a difference. The aim is to get the ball through the holes (target) in the net, with the competitor achieving the highest score winning, each hole is worth a different value, depending on the difficulty of hitting the target.
