Offer Adam Hammill a new contract

There is nothing more important to football fans than feeling a real connection with the club they follow. In the modern game players come and go, and special relationships between loyal club icons and the fans are becoming rarer and rarer. 

Adam Hammill is a Barnsley FC club icon and legend. He has come up with us and gone down with us; shared in our glory and our pain. He has always put his heart on his sleeve to serve this football club - a club he admits has a special place in his heart. Our kids look up to him and us adults greatly respect him. 

Adam isn't a youth prospect anymore, and Barnsley FC have decided that means he has no use to us this season. We disagree. Adam Hammill is useful to us because of our youth focus. He lends immeasurable experience to our young lads coming through, and the bond he shares with the fans gives our young talent something to wish for and work toward. 

His work rate, aggression and energy are infectious. It isn't just the Wembley screamers; it's the sprinting back 70 yards and sliding in to win back the ball on a cold December Tuesday, to rapturous applause, when some of our players have already given up the chase from closer positions. No other player shows such commitment. 

Hammill always gives 100% in a Barnsley shirt, and if the new board want to get off to the right start with the fans, dispensing of his services is a mistake. We implore Barnsley FC to reconsider and offer him fresh terms.
