When people think of a World Cup manager from Barnsley, Mick McCarthy instantly springs to mind for his exploits with Ireland. But did you know one man from the town took a country to the semi-finals long before McCarthy had even kicked a ball. Barnsley's Best pays tribute to the those who have flown the flag on the biggest stage and, not content with just focussing on facts and figures, the book also captures the highs and lows in a heart-warming, fascinating look at the town's sporting heroes. More than 30 men and women are featured in the most definitive sporting guide yet. So, how did a girl from Cudworth become the fastest woman on the planet? How did a boy from Monk Bretton make it into English cricket folklore? And just how much does Mick McCarthy want to become manager of Barnsley FC? Nathan Hemmingham was once assistant sports editor at The Barnsley Chronicle, where he worked for seven years. During this time he followed the successes of the town's sports stars closely, and has a keen interest in Barnsley's sporting triumphs.
