Hammill's Final Farewell

At full time in the nPower Championship clash between Hull City and Barnsley, which ended 2-0 to the Tigers with Barnsley down to nine men, winger Adam Hammill threw his shirt into the throng of Barnsley supporters - a gesture notrmally saved until the end of the season.

The former Liverpool man was ineffective in the game against Hull City, with the Reds mustering up a mere three shots on target, but Hammill waved a prolonged goodbye to the supporters of Barnsley and has put it beyond any doubt that he will not be a Barnsley player for very much longer.

This leaves Mark Robins with a lot of work to do. His central defensive pairing of Stephen Foster and Jason Shackell will be suspended for next Saturday's game against high-flying Swansea City and he will need to find an able replacement for Hammill who has surely played his last game for the Reds.

Relating to the "Hammill Farewell" article, I'm the fan who caught the shirt at the Hull City Match on saturday ! It's now in my wardrobe but will be worn to the Doncaster away game next tuesday.

Nice one, Dave! You heard it here first, folks - Hammill will be making another appearance (of sorts) for the Reds!

He will be a big loss for Barnsley, looked a great player against us earlier in the season.
