Free Kick special Steve Agnew, started his career with the reds and spent 8 successful years at Barnsley Football Club with 194 games to his name, currently first team coach at Premiership side Middlesbrough. Including a 15 second debut against Charlton Athletic in 1984.
During his time with the reds, memorable moments stand out like the free kick goals in the mid week away win over West Ham United in the league cup. Steve was a quality, skillful utility player and orchestrating in Midfield, and a firm Oakwell favourite of the time. He moved onto Blackburn Rovers for £700,000. Not making a big impact at Rovers, he moved on to Portsmouth on loan, and then Leicester permanently.

Trevor Aylott, was a powerful part of the exciting Barnsley FC team around the early 80's. Played for Barnsley through 1979-81, and the two promotion seasons of the time. Went on to Millwall for £150,000 tribunal fee, with the reds wanting £400,000. But failed to hit the same form with his home town club (Trevor was a Bermondsey boy) as he displayed at Oakwell during the two or so successful seasons he was with the tykes.
Trevors skill and power committed him to legendary status at Barnsley FC.
Position: Goal Keeper
The great mustacheod one (seen here without one..!) nice guy clive. Held his position between the sticks between 1984 - 1991.
Moved to Barnsley in 1984 from Norwich City, (where he was understudy to England goalkeeper Chris Woods) resulting in 291 appearances for the Reds. During his time at Oakwell Clive twice won the Barnsley Football Club 'Player of the Year award'.

Darren played for Barnsley between the years 1997-2000, drafted in by Danny Wilson as part of the Premiership build up. Darren Barnard was a very cultured player at left back, left midfield for the reds, scoring some of Barnsleys best goals of all time, dropping volleys from over the wrong shoulder into the top corner from 30 yards was his bread and butter, brilliant shot on him, and solid at the back, well and truly deserves his slot in the BFC legends section.
Notched 28 goals for Barnsley including a couple in spectacular land.... and played for reds 201 times, through the Premiership and was part of the 7-1 demolition of Hudddersfield town in the Championship at Oakwell, when the reds run riot in front of the Sky cameras.

John Beresford came to Barnsley, complete with lovely blond mullett... and was instrumental within the Barnsley midfield with his cultured play and energetic performances, an integral part of a very decent Barnsley FC side around that time, playing 88 games for the reds during 1986-1989 scoring 5 goals in the old second division. John went on to play for Portsmouth and most notably enjoyed a very successful period at Newcastle United during Kevin Keegans first spell as manager at St. James Park.

Games: 68 Goals: 2
Danny graced Oakwell from 1948 to 1951, playing 68 league games for the reds, before going onto great footballing fame at Aston Villa and Spurs. Captain of Northern Ireland at the 1958 World Cup and captaining Spurs' 1961 Double Winning side, he was easily one of the most important footballers in football history.
Games: 128 Goals: 9
Winnie Campbell was a pacy tricky winger of the time, a lively player, formed another part of arguably the best Barnsley side ever in the early 1980's. Not unlike Jamal Campbell-Ryce of todays team, comparable in looks, size footballing style and tricky skill.
His work down the wing provided lots of goal goals for the big men who he supplied, strikers such as Aylott and Glavin, the type of player that defenders hate to be up against.
Games: 157 Goals: 42
David Currie, too hot to handle.. our long haired striker from the period, used to dribble his way round the box, and put the goals away in a prolific manner as well as creating many others. Once saw him score 4 goals in the fog of one 2nd division fixture.. can't recall the team.. might have been Bournemouth?
He scored 30 goals in 80 appearances between 1988-90 and had another short spell with the reds a year so later in which he scored 12 times.
