    Can you be a Tyke if you're not born in Barnsley?

    I always thought that tyke is a name given to somebody from Yorkshire.

    If you're a Barnsley fan you're a tyke. If you have made your home in Barnsley you are too. It's not where you were born it's where a piece of your heart lies

    I was born in Beverley and I'm not a Barnsley lad but as much as a 'Tyke' as anyone.

    A Barnsley fan is a Barnsley fan wherever he was born, if he goes to the matches, checks the Barnsley score before any other, lives and breathes Barnsley he/she is a Barnsley fan period

    Young lad that sits with us is from Norwich. His dad is a reds fan who moved there, and he followed suit.

    The more the merrier for me.

    I'm not from Barnsley either btw.

    Errrmm.
    The Reds - which we are often referred to - can be related to Liverpool FC, Manchester United, Nottingham Forest etc etc etc.
    But there is only one TYKES.
    And that's Barnsley.

    If born in, or have any link to Barnsley - then you are a TYKE.
    If you adopt the town as your own - then you are a TYKE.
    Which is a name linked to the WHOLE of Yorkshire.
    BBC Radio Sheffield and the like will call us anything - but they will try their best not to call us
    TYKES of YORKSHIRE.

    I see "fans" and "supporters" as two different groups. When I meet one of these glory fans who follow the man united or arsenal but never goes to games I regard them as just a fan. I see a supporter as one who who supports the club financially by attending games and putting money into the club wherever they are from.
