In 1997, Barnsley was struggling to recover from the impact of the greatest industrial dispute this country had ever seen. The Government of the day had ripped up the industry the people depended on, declared its brave men and women as ‘The Enemy Within’ and left them out to dry. In less than ten years, in a town with a population of around 200,000, over 30,000 jobs were gone. But one group of people provided them with hope. Led by the young but inspirational Danny Wilson, Barnsley Football Club earned promotion to the top tier of English football for the first time in its 110 year history, playing football likened to that only seen on the beaches of Rio, with a group of players assembled from non-league, free transfers and local lads raised through the Club's academy. An achievement never seen before and one unlikely to be seen again. ‘Daydream Believers’ is the story of that achievement and how it taught a whole Town to believe again.
