Barry Town Footballers Surprise Fans With Phone Calls During Coronavirus Isolation

 

The footballers of Barry Town United brought a whole new meaning to having a close connection with the fanbase by giving some of their dedicated supporters a quick ring and chat during the week.

In a move that wasn't publicised by the club, members of the first team squad delighted fans who then took to social media to excitedly share the news of their unexpected conversations.

One mother of a supporter said:

"What a really kind, thoughtful gesture from Barry Town Utd players ringing around their fans for a chat. In these worrying, difficult times when people are struggling all it takes is a phone call to put a smile on someone's face. Thank you, my boy is very happy."

Rhys Deans, a presenter on Bro Radio's "Yellow & Blue Army Radio Show" also took to Twitter to praise the move saying:

"The fact that Barry Town United players are taking their time to call up the fans to see if they're alright, what they're up to and how are they coping goes to show how much of a family club it is. We show them support home and away and they show their gratitude by showing theirs."

The club currently don't know when they will be playing football again, with the JD Cymru Premier not returning until at least the 30th April, but very likely to be further delayed due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
