Date set for Bobby Hassell's testimonial game next month.
The Bobby Hassell Testimonial Committee are delighted to make the following announcement:
We are pleased to confirm Bobby Hassell’s testimonial match will take place on Saturday 18 July (3.00pm), at Oakwell - with the Barnsley F.C. first team taking on a Mansfield Town XI.
Bobby will captain the Reds as his two former sides meet for this celebratory fixture to give the fans and Bobby the opportunity to celebrate his 10 years in the red of Barnsley.
We would like to thank both Barnsley F.C. and Mansfield Town F.C. on behalf of Bobby for showing their support to agreeing to this fixture which will give both sets of fans the opportunity to see Bobby in action once more, as he leads Lee Johnson’s new side out in pre-season for what will be the club’s first match back at Oakwell ahead of the new campaign.
Mansfield Town Adam Murray said: “It will be a great occasion for Bobby. He is a rare breed in football in the sense that he has played for two clubs for such a long spell in his career.
“To stay at two clubs and be so successful and effective is a credit to him and to earn a testimonial with Barnsley Football Club is testament to his person and character.”
He added: “Bobby is one of the most loyal and honest of people I have met in the game.”
We look forward to announcing more details surrounding Bobby’s Testimonial fixture in the near future. Tickets for the game will be priced at £10 adults, £5 concessions.
