Six Barnsley related questions, answers to be posted on here tomorrow.
70s. It’s been a while since I’ve given you a player to identify from the Super Soaraway Sun’s soccercards, so who’s this Barnsley player from this decade?
80s. This journeyman left back with nearly four hundred career appearances had two distinctive parts to his career. The first was spent playing in England as, apart from a brief Devon interlude after he left Barnsley having played just under a hundred matches for them at the end of this decade, he never strayed far from his Yorkshire roots. However, apart from a loan spell at one of his former haunts, he then spent the last seven years of his time in the game playing in another country as he turned out for five different teams, with the highspot coming when he played against some German giants for a team of alliterative Rovers in the UEFA Cup. A move into the police force after retiring brought mixed fortunes as he was commended in 2001 for saving the life of a teenage girl, but fifteen years later he was dismissed from the force after testing positive for cocaine. Who am I describing?
