An article has been published this month by The Barnsley FC Supporters Trust, showing some outstanding work that recently been undertaken to restore the Memorial of Barnsley FC Founder, Reverend Tiverton Preedy.

The Reverend Preedy is buried at a cemetery in the London area, where it was found that his grave had fallen into disrepair. Now, following a successful appeal for donations, the Supporters Trust have now paid for the full restoration of the grave, a project conceived and completed by members of both the Trust and (fans group) the London Tykes
