It will be the first live Gentry Day since 2019, the 2020 and 2021 celebration having to be held virtually because of the Covid pandemic.

With the end of the season getting nearer, PNE chose to have a vote on which away game to have Gentry Day.

It was a choice between Derby County on April 2 and Barnsley on April 30.

The clash with Barnsley at Oakwell attracted 77% of the vote on the club’s website and social media channels.

Barnsley will be able to provide a bigger allocation than Derby, with 3,000 seats initially given and plenty more available if those are sold.

Details of sales for Barnsley – PNE’s last away game of the season – will be announced in due course.

Gentry Day has been held at Barnsley before, in March 2015 when North End drew 1-1 with a goal from Joe Garner.
