Ashley Ward was brought into the Barnsley ranks during the early part of the Premiership campaign. His goals and tenacity made him a massive favourite amongst the Oakwell faithful, had an impressive work rate where he chased every half chance and made opportunities for himself. Scored the only goal at Anfield in which the reds held on to a memorable 0-1 win... (well, we usually win at Anfield don't we!?).
Ashley's goals nearly helped retain Premierhsip status, but sadly the gravity to the Championship proved too strong for the tykes. Ashley Ward was a big part of the most memorable season in Barnsley FC history. Some would say one of the best strikers we have had down at Oakwell.
Ashleys 20 goals in 46 appearances for the reds illustrates his form for the reds. The following season after relegation, Ashley Ward moved onto Blackburn Rovers in 1998 fora large fee of £4.5 million. He went on to play for other Yorkshire clubs including Bradford City (pictured).

Danny played for the reds 77 times scoring two goals. But he is in the legend list, for his work as Manager and getting the reds in to the Premiership for the only time in our history.

Wylde was a dependable striker for the reds, he was good in the air but had fine skill on the ground for a tall man. He had a fine mullet when he was action for the reds, but that was just par for the course during the 80's, so don't hold it against him!
Remember seeing him score against his old side Sunderland at the old Roker Park, getting bottles thrown over by the hospitable Sunderland fans, over to our tiny sliver of an away end in the corner of one of the big home uncovered kops behind the goal... but we did send them down that day, so fair enough!
Roger played for the reds from 1985-1988, in the latter part of his playing career but left some lasting memories for reds fans. Seem to remember him also being the penalty specialist for the tykes at the time.
In his last years in football he took a degree in physiotherapy and is now the physiotherapist for Stockport County.
