Contact The Barnsley FC Historian

David Wood has been appointed the new Barnsley FC historian in response to the retirement of Arthur Bower. Arthur had filled the role from the early 1980's taking over from Grenville Firth and has religiously colated and catalogued the history of the club from that date. He was one of the main people responsible for putting together the clubs Centenary Exhibition in 1987 at the Cooper Gallery and has constantly made himself available to answer peoples queries and questions. In the past few year s David has worked closely with Arthur on the project of re-checking the player appearances and has identified 10 individuals to have crossed the line who were previously ignored. Indeed the Great Barry Murphy has had his record breaking tally of games increased from 567 games to 569 after the discovery of two forgotten substitute appearances in the 1960's. Both Dave and Arthur are members of the Supporters Trust. 

Dave is taking this opportunity to appeal for any old photographs, films or memorabillia that people may have and would be willing to have copied. The club is looking  to build up an electronic database of the clubs history and player shots and teamgroups would be of particular interest.
