Barnsley Football Club is an English football club, based in the South Yorkshire borough of Barnsley, and nicknamed the Tykes. Toby Tyke being their mascot. The club was founded in 1887 as Barnsley St. Peter's.
Barnsley have spent more seasons in the second tier of English football than any other club in history and have produced some notable talents over the years who have gone on to be successful at other clubs. One example is Tommy Taylor, who was a prolific goalscorer for Barnsley in the early 1950s and went on to win two league titles with Manchester United (as well as scoring 16 times in 19 England internationals) before losing his life in the Munich air disaster. Taylor's move to Manchester United was for a then world-record fee of £29,999.
