Reds Set For New Club Badge

Friday November 1 2013




BARNSLEY Football Club are planning to change their club badge.

Chairman Maurice Watkins revealed in his Chronicle column that the new design will be decided by fans this season and chosen out of a selection put forward by the club.

The new crest will feature on next year's shirts.

Watkins said it will be 'respectful of the past but seek to give a new look for the future'.

Better than what? Have you seen the options for the new badge?

Reply Posted by Adele on Friday November 1 2013 at 16:35
Absolutely no way, why would you want to change who Barnsley are?.
The new design is meaningless.

I wish people would read stuff before commenting..... the new one hasn't even been designed yet!! The other badge there is the supporter's trust badge.

Here's mi chance!!!!!!! Am ready for it. :-) :-) :-) :-) kick out the scraggy bird, GET ME ON IT!!!!!!

An up to date badge reflecting a new image for Barnsley FC may be better but no one can comment until they've seen the proposed designs.

The town logo is an emblem for the town not the club, Toby Tyke is childish and for the kids and the oak leaf with a well may be a play on words but it's hardly inspiring.

The new badge needs to reflect the club, the fans and the history whilst still being modern........... lets see what they do before people start moaning.

why would you want to change the badge,if they want to change everything then lets start by changing the idiot that thought this up, the Chairman Maurice Watkins.

You have the facility to do this otherwise I for one will stop posting.

Call me old fashioned but I like the badge just the way it is. Leave well alone I say.

Reply Posted by Chrissy! on Monday November 4 2013 at 16:27
My views are neutral on this topic if im honest. A change to the badge isn't going to stop me supporting the team i love. I think its always a good thing to freshen up the club as long as we don't get carried away and change our home kit colour.... however Cardiff are now in the premier league ;)

It should be the old well if not kes doing the v sign

Reply Posted by Ex Red on Tuesday November 5 2013 at 11:52
Maurice Watkins should run a competion asking schools etc to design the new club badge, may cause a bit of interest in the club, why pay outsiders to design it.???

Reply Posted by Shaun Ashworth on Thursday November 7 2013 at 20:18
I hope they compensate all the lads who have a tattoo of the old crest...

Reply Posted by Joanne on Thursday November 7 2013 at 20:20
No no no, keep the same badge, it will be a big mistake.

Reply Posted by janb on Thursday November 7 2013 at 20:30
Money should be spent sorting out our defence first before designing a new badge.

Reply Posted by roy on Thursday November 7 2013 at 20:36

Reply Posted by scottyT on Thursday November 7 2013 at 20:52
some people have short memory's, the badge has been changed a few times in the past. wait and see what they put forward as a new one before judging, not that it matters you'll always be in the shadow of the mighty leeds united ; )

not been a fan of that badge since day 1 just a copy of the bmbc emblem,nor the poorly designed computer generated options that some one had drawn up in haste by the looks.
The old late70s n 80s oak well badge should be brought back.
