Reds legend set for Oakwell return at Sporting Dinner


Barnsley FC legend Gerry Taggart will return to Oakwell with tales from the dressing room at our Sporting Dinner next month.

Taggart made 250 appearances for the Reds in the 1990s, impressing fans with his defending skills during five years at Barnsley and breaking into the Northern Ireland national team too.

Gerry will be joined by former referee and fellow Irishman Dermot Gallagher, who took charge of over 900 Premier League games across his 17-year career.

The pair will speak at our Sporting Dinner, held in the Legends Suite at the Oakwell Stadium on Friday 16th March. Tickets cost £35 per person, which includes a three-course meal.

Martyn Hughes, events fundraiser at Barnsley Hospice, said: “We’re really excited to welcome Gerry and Dermot as our special guest speakers. They were both involved in football for many years but from completely different perspectives, so it will be fascinating to hear their stories. We can guarantee a night of great food and plenty of laughs and we’re confident that guests will leave with a few secrets they’ve never heard before.”

Our Sporting Dinner is sponsored by Fenton Roofing, Mr M Stothard and Smart Door Solutions Ltd. Tickets are available from our event page or by calling 01226 244244.
