This week we have a decidedly classy badge from Barnsley F.C, who play their home games at the at the 23,000 seat capacity Oakwell ground. Currently sitting in mid-table of the Championship, last year Barnsley in fact won two trophies at Wembley Stadium. First came the Football League trophy with a 3-2 win over Oxford United, followed by promotion to the Championship with a play-off victory over Milwall F.C.
The wonderful Barnsley F.C. badge comes from the Barnsley Coat of Arms. The badge shows a coal miner and a glass blower, reflecting the importance of these industries in the local area in their history. The classy, old-fashioned look is completed with our first Latin motto in a while: ‘Spectemur Agendo’. This translates as ‘Judge us by our actions’, a fairly appropriate saying for a football team to wear every week.
