Mark Crossley: Heading to hometown club

Crossley, a Wales international goalkeeper, joins manager Danny Wilson's backroom staff as the Tykes attempt to drag themselves out of the Championship drop-zone.

The Barnsley-born 44-year-old was handed his debut by Forest's legendary former manager Brian Clough and made over 300 appearances for the City Ground side.

He picked up eight caps for Wales during a playing career which also featured spells at Middlesbrough, Fulham, Sheffield Wednesday and Oldham.

Crossley began coaching at Chesterfield, where he had a stint as caretaker manager, and was also given a role with Sheffield Wednesday's academy.

Barnsley moved within three points of safety after Tuesday's 3-1 win at Reading and will face drop rivals Yeovil on Saturday.

Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
