I Was Once a Barnsley Football Club Mascot

So, I was flicking through some of my shoe boxes of memories and came across a bunch of old (mostly bad quality) pictures from my times following Barnsley F.C. down the years. Looking back, it’s hard to believe that I went to Wembley three times (twice to the “old” and once to the “new”) between 2000 and 2008. Not bad for a team currently in the lower-half of the Championship.
