Any Barnsley FC fans in Adelaide?

    Recommended Posts

    Are there any Barnsley fans out there in Adelaide? My husband is a HUGE Barnsley fan and is really missing his football banter! He has set up a group on facebook - Barnsley F.C. Australian Supporters Club if any other fans out there that want regular updates and a chat!

     

    Hi Bev

     

    Somehow found your post. I am Barnsley fan (from Wakefield), moving to Adelaide at the beginning of November. My other Barnsley supporting friends say there is a big Australian Barnsley Fan from Adelaide around somewhere who used to go alot of games when he lived in the UK. Not sure if your husband has bumped into him?

     

    Anyway be good to get in touch with your husband when we get to Adelaide

     

    Cheers

    Hiya Dave

     

    Not sure who the big Barnsley fan is, but my husband and friend are big fans! Get yourself onto Barnsley F.C. Australian Supporters Club on facebook. My husband made the page up when he got out here. We also met another lad from Barnsley on PIA who we're now great friends with. What are you guys going to be doing for work out here?

    Hi Bev,

    I still listen to Barnsley player every week.

    Not a good start so far this season.

    Been here for 3 and half years now.

    Last time I was back in the tarn they had 2 away matches.

    Not on face book, but will look out for any up dates on here

    Hi Bev

     

    I think I found it and posted a message - I assume the replies are from you and your husband. The Adelaide branch will soon be plus one, I will also get in touch with this guy my mates told me about.

     

    My girlfriend is a Nurse and is hopeful of getting work very quickly. I work in HR so might take longer to get something. What about you guys? Are you both frum Tarn?

    Hi Mez

     

    Are you from Barnsley too?

     

    Its not been a good start but I honestly think the squad we have is the best we have had for a while. I've been a couple of games this year and we were bad both times particularly Bournemouth away - shocking

     

     

    Cheers

    Yes Dave,

     

    Born in Darfield - used to go to most of the matches before I came here.

    I get the home programmes delivered every week and I still sit up to listen to Barnsley player every week. It was 8.5 hrs difference until last weekend now its 9.5hrs. So the kick off is now 00:30. Then it goes to 01:30 when the UK clocks go back.

    No wonder the wife thinks i'm mad.

    When do you get here?

    I get there 1st week in November. Do you ever get championship games on TV there or do you have to use the dodgy internet feeds?

     

    I would be up for meeting up for a game

    Yeah that's us Dave! Our friend Alex is also on there, we met him on PIA. I'm a nurse too at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, your girlfriend should easily get work out here. If she has any questions just give me a shout. I'm originally from Thurnscoe and my husband is from Birdwell and works for SAPOL.

    Thanks Bev - yeah if its OK we will get in touch when we arrive in Adelaide. What type of nursing are you doing? How do you find the work in comparison to back home? I think she is hoping to get work at the Women & Childrens hospital.

        Hey,
        moving to Adelaide in October, 
        had been looking into sorts and leisure activities... then thought best to ask you guys!
        going to be living Adelaide hills area.
        lookijg to get involved with amateur/local cricket, football (soccer), golf lessons and ideally a bit of fishing (sea and river/lakes)
        make the most of having a lot of outside space (currently in London) so looking forward to some outdoor hobbies
        appreciate any thoughts and ideas 
         
        thanks Adam

        Hi,
        I'm a 29 year old male from Leicester, and I am emigrating to Adelaide in October this year.
        I was just wondering if anyone knew of any Football (soccer) Supporters Clubs in the Adelaide area. In particular any Leicester City supporters?
        My girlfriend and I are moving over and won't really know anybody else in the city, so thought it might be a good idea to see if there any supporters over there.
        Even if you don't happen to support Leicester City, would still be good to meet people who actually like watching proper football and not AFL! (not that there's anything wrong with AFL but I'll be having withdrawal symptoms if I don't watch any football....)
        Any advice or pointers in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
        If you don't like football but would still be interested in meeting up to socialise and make friends, drop us a PM.
        Cheers
        Steve
