Fans Banned By Football Club After Derby Day Incident

Monday February 24 2014




FIVE Barnsley Football Club fans have been banned from attending matches until the end of next season after being arrested at the derby against Doncaster on February 15.

Nearly 3,000 fans made the short trip across South Yorkshire to watch the 2-2 draw, but the club has been forced to release a statement on some fans' behaviour at the Keepmoat Stadium.

A number of smoke canisters were released which resulted in five people being arrested and a further person was arrested for an assault on a steward.

A statement from the club said: "Those who were arrested will be subject to a club banning order for the rest of this season and the 2014/15 season.

"Not only are smoke canisters banned, but they also cause discomfort for fans, especially those suffering from asthma and this was the case with the incident at Doncaster as a young female Barnsley supporter was taken ill.

"Those who wish to cause such disturbances and assaults on others are not the type of supporter we welcome and are using football matches purely as a platform for their anti-social behaviour."

The club - which finds itself the subject of a report by the Football Association for the fourth time this season - has urged supporters and stewards to work together to prevent anti-social issues on match day.

Only 5 arrests out of 3000 is a great result and a testement to the good natured attitude of Barnsley fans.
This good attitude is in spite of :-

Heavy handed SYP tactics
Utter disrespect from SYP
Aggressive and intimidation from Stewards at the Keepmoat
Even worse Agression intimidation and incitement from Doyles Stewards when at Oakwell.

Well done Dingles you are some of the Best fans in the country.

Blades fan UTB FTO

So you're from Barnsley and we're dingles but you're not!? How does that work then?

Let me explain.... I'll try my best to keep,it simple and in words with no more than 3 syllables.

I'm not a Barnsley FC supporter I'm a Sheffield United supporter.
So as a Sheffield United supporter I can't be a Dingle

Let me try another way

BFC fan known as a Dingle to other South Yorkshire footy fans
SUFC fan know as a Blunt or Pig to other South Yorkshire footy fans.

Now if you don't get that Red Army do me a favour and don't reproduce.

A smart arse Barnsley blade, well there's A novelty. And there was me thinking it's what Sheffield people call us simple Barnsley folk. So you were at Donny then? To see Doncaster Rovers v Barnsley, you seem a bit confused son.

So dingle is a compliment?

Reply Posted by Barnsley Truth on Wednesday February 26 2014 at 09:01
Read the post @Really. Dingle like Blunt is Football banter, and if you get offended by it tough.
There was a genuine complement and any REAL Barnsley fans would take it as such.

Jeeeeezus where's that famous Self deprecating sense of humour

Oh 'banter' that old chestnut, nah you're just mugging your own town off. You don't get it all, brainwashed by those sophisticated Sheffield types

Reply Posted by Red army on Wednesday February 26 2014 at 09:50
He probably thinks his dee dar mates don't call him a dingle behind his back.

Reply Posted by Barnsley Truth on Wednesday February 26 2014 at 12:58
There seems to be a misconception that I am from Barnsley, you see that's the problem with you unsophisticated Diggers, soon as someone has a bit of a giggle with you, you get all grumpy because it's a bit close to the truth.
