    Yes, I got a lot of cricket gear for my two sons from there , the father & son who used to run it were called Sissons & that time they both played at Rotherham Pheonix although Ithink they moved clubs later

    There's a gap in the market for sports shops in Barnsley I reckon. In the town center now theres only sports direct who many people wont buy from and blackfords.

    Keegan Sports was owned by a distant relative of mine. Walt Keegan. I think he had something to do with Don Valley Sports too...

    They were very good with junior cricket & sponsored the Barnsley & district junior cricket league for years & also if you were affiliated to any league club they would give you extra discount on your purchase , really nice people

    There was one on Ponte Road too iirc. Where Oakwell Sandwiches is now.

    Pretty sure the Umbro logo is still on the shutter when the sarnie show is closed.

    I'll try again! Yes, it was called Top Sports Supplies. I used to work in there some Saturdays back in the late 1980s. They did sell Nike and also specialised in selling badminton equipment!

    I think the shop was called Top Sports, or something similar. I could be wrong though.
