We are delighted to announce that "Oakwell Legend", Eric Winstanley, has agreed to to be our guest on a forthcoming edition of OnThePontyEnd.com | The Podcast.

As a player, Eric represented Barnsley FC for 13 years, with 10 of those spent as the club captain. Additionally, he served for over 20 years on the coaching staff, including assistant to Danny Wilson in the never-to-be-forgotten 1996-97 Premiership promotion season. We simply can't wait to share this fascinating meeting with you.

Certainly in the modern game it's extremely rare for players, managers and staff to hold a long association with any club. In this instance, Eric can look back on 34 years with the Reds, including two spells as caretaker manager and a star studded testimonial in November 2001 against Manchester United. Incidentally, Barnsley won 1–0.

We want you to get involved. If you had the opportunity, what would you ask Eric about his time with the club?

Perhaps you have fond memories of a particular game or of a period in Barnsley's recent past that you would like to share with our guest and our other listeners. Send us something in, it would be great if we could share these messages, your questions and letters during this unique edition of the podcast.
