Oakwell (Barnsley)

This is a fairly quick one due to the fact that I’ve only got one photo of it. Yep, it’s one of my stash that I lost when my phone broke.

I hit lucky in that I passed through Barnsley earlier this season, just a few hours after they’d played Crawley there. I tweeted a friend who supports them to mention I’d been and embarrassingly that’s all I have left.

So it’s back to my old friend Google Street view,  which in fairness is quite handy for seeing just how much is visible if you’re passing. It is a great ground for a wander around. There’s not much to see inside, but the stands are huge and very old school.

I’ve nicked a picture my friend Ben tweeted from the away end at Oakwell so you can get a glimpse of the inside, but even without that it’s worth a visit. The club’s training ground is located opposite and even has a small stand by one of the pitches too, similar to Doncaster’s Keepmoat Stadium.

So it’s totally worth a visit. Old fashioned and impressive, it’s just a shame I’ve only got one photograph left of it. I’ll have to go back!

Woodhorn Lane Update

Not much action to report this week. The ground where the new stand will go looks a bit clearer, and the nearby pile of rubble has grown quite a bit. Hopefully the structure will start soon!
