As any body from Barnsley FC ever played for England while at the club ? I can only think of John Stones (Everton/Man.City) and Tommy Taylor (Man Utd)  both of whom had left the club by then and Danny Blanchflower (N.Ireland) was a former Barnsley player but never capped while there,

  My team would look like this having all represented their country  but not for our local clubs at the time. In  a 2-3-5  formation                                                               Ron Springett

                              Mel Sterland                                                                        Graham Shaw

 

                                   Des Walker                    Peter Swan                   Emlyn Hughes

 

 

                                              John Sheridan                                        Tony Currie

Jimmy Johnstone                                          David   Hirst                                        Chris Waddle

Shouldn't this be best South Yorkshire team - and include Donny Rovers?

 

Leeds and Huddersfield have had some handy players in their time.

Yes Donny Rovers but the only really good players I remember with them are Alec Jeffrey and Harry Gregg  unless I can be enlightened on more recent ones (Charlie Williams ?). Doncaster is in South Yorkshire but Leeds and Huddersfield are in West Yorkshire.

Laurie Sheffield wasn't bad. The  Snodins are worth a mention too.

The players which I selected I had seen them play many times and imo worthy of a place in the line up. There is no doubt if I had seen Dooley, Hagan  and Jefferies they would have been considered for selection. Not easy being a manager is it.

John Fantham is the Owls leading post-war goalscorer with 166 from 1958 to 1969, Derek tho' managed 62 in 61 appearances for the Owls from 1950 to 1953.
