Marcelle, Clint
Position: Midfield
Games: 69 Goals: 8

Big crowd favourite, notably in the Promotion season to the Premiership, this Trinidad and Tobego live wire excited Oakwell with some lovely well taken goals, and passionate performances, similar to today's Jamal Campbell-Ryce, in stature and style of play.

Marcelle came runner up with 17% of the vote in the Oakwells greatest cult hero as voted by Football Focus viewers, with Ronnie Glavin winning the honours by a big percentage.

Scorer of the decisive 2nd goal when we beat Bradford City at Oakwell to seal promotion to the Premiership. He had a great season that year, but sadly failed to make an impression in the Premiership, but he remains a Barnsley hero for the goal that secured promotion alone, but he did make an enormous contribution to the reds in that one promotion season.

May, Larry
Position: Defender
Games: 122 Goals: 3

Big Larry May, the kingpin within the Barnsley back four during 1983-86 playing 122 times for the reds.

He used his considerable height in blocking out the opposition, and also to pose a threat with set pieces in the opposition half. Organised the back four during his years at Barnsley FC, and was club captain for a time during his years with the club.

Moved onto Sheffield Wednesday as did a few of Barnsley FC players at the time.

McCarthy, Mick
Position: Defender
Games: 272 Goals: 7

Barnsley born Mick, instilled all that a being a Barnsley lad involves... tough, uncompromising, but this was combined with an amazing ability at heart of the Barnsley defence.

Great player, and has gone on to being a great manager, managing Republic of Ireland through a World Cup, currently making Wolves into a promotion winning team.... could do with Mick managing Barnsley.. one day maybe?

Mick McCarthy made his league debut for then-Fourth Division Barnsley on August 20, 1977 in a 4-0 win over Rochdale. He spent two years in the bottom league, before the club won promotion. Two years later, the reds again went up to the (old) Division 2. Mick was a strong central defender, he was a virtual ever-present for his hometown Barnsley FC, but departed in December 1983 for the then fellow Division 2 club, Manchester City.

Mick played an amazing 272 games for the reds. And his leadership at the back is probably the best we have seen/or will ever see at Oakwell.
