To date the following fixtures are ear marked for this initiative. To take advantage of this offer you must be a member of the Supporters Trust (both Junior and parent/carer).

There may also be the opportunity to become the Barnsley FC Mascot at these games. This is strictly limited to one mascot per game. For more details again contact Alan for more details.

The Supporters' Trust plans to run a coach to most of the away matches and would encourage you to use this facility if you live within 25 miles of Oakwell. . We hope that by doing this we will encourage a closer community within the Oakwell Juniors and ensure that the trip becomes an enjoyable and fun day out and that you meet new friends.

Detailed below are guidelines for applications and issue rules regarding these tickets, as agreed at the AGM in 2007

1, As soon as the games are known a notice will be sent out to all Juniors members via post, e-mail and placed on our website.

2, Everyone is asked to register their interest and leave e-mails or telephone numbers. From this a standard list is produced and as and when we have games coming up, An e-mail is sent out to everyone and telephone calls made asking for applications. Supporters can also register interest in the Trust Office before home games.

3, Tickets are allocated initially to those willing to travel on the Trust/Club coach. These are allocated strictly on at least one Junior to one adult.
2 nd group are those that live away and are known to travel on a regular basis.
3 rd Group are those that in some cases they cannot travel on coach due to other commitments, I.E some play for junior teams on Saturday morning and couldn't get to Oakwell in time but can get to away ground in time. These are usually games near to Barnsley .
