Barnsley FC CEO sends letter to a fan suffering from depression


League One side Barnsley FC is trending on social media for the right reasons.

The club CEO sent a heartfelt letter to one of the club's fans who is suffering from depression:

Dear Chris,

"Sorry for sending you a letter at random, but I feel like I wanted to reach out to you and get in touch. I've noticed through social media that you've had a bit of a hard time recently, I'm not sure what it is but I hope everything improves for you as soon as possible. 

"You've been a fan for many years and always supported us, so we want you to know if the favour needs returning and we need to support you, let us know.

"You are welcome to swing by any time. My office door is always open and we've finally got a new coffee machine, a huge thanks to Alfie Mawson for that!"


The fact that the club noticed that a fan is struggling with depression through social media shows the strenght of social media and how much the club is paying attention to their fans.

This is a well-thought letter written by Gauthier Ganaye, the Alfie Mawson and coffee part is funny.

Alfie Mawson played for Barnsley during the 2015/16 season before moving to Swansea, where he played for a season before they were relegated and recently signed for newly promoted Premier League side Fulham.

Most likely, Barnsley got some money from the new Fulham deal and the club was able to buy a new coffee machine, how nice, lol.

This is a great gesture by the Barnsley CEO in a world where football clubs are turning into corporate organizations.
