  1. Barnsley Academy is not the best and tbh the 2 pitches at Middlewood are absolutely superbly looked after by the ground staff.

    Efe ambrose

    I saw Efe play like a top class defender one week then the next game we wanted to string him up. I saw him many a time at Celtic and he really can be a valuable asset and imho he would thrive at Wednesday . Good honest professional. It went wrong for Efe at Celtic when he came back a winner from the ACON and declared himself fit to play against Juve in the last 16 of the CL and was at fault for two of the goals scored against us that night. He never fully recovered from that and his confidence was shot to pieces. Tbf to him he’s done alright at Hibs and is now ready for another challenge.
  3. Aaaarrgh!!! The owls were left frustrated after another 3 points slipped from their grasp. The boys found themselves 1 down in the 2nd minute when a ball back to the keeper took a horrible bobble over his foot and the Barnsley kid followed the ball into the net. We just couldn’t get going first half and the whistle was a welcome break. The second half saw us go 2 down around 65 mins and that seemed to shake the boys into life. Jordan O’Brien started a move down the right wing and after a couple of neat one twos he found himself on the scoresheet after the keeper could only parry a fierce shot onto the on rushing O’Brien. Ten mins later Eyad Hammoud was brought down in the box and O’Brien missed the resultant penalty. Owls were on the up now and again O’Briens terrific shot came off the inside of the post and fell nicely to Vasalo to prod home. Plenty chances to take all 3 but Barnsley managed to hold out for the draw. Forest 18s lost today so we sit 1 point behind the leaders. Wednesday 16s beat Barnsley 4 nil.

    Bruising Burnley side**
  7. This was a blood and thunder game that had Burnley throwing in tackles all over the place. Burnley went 1nil up after 15 mins but the boys fought back and would not let their opponents intimidate them and gave as good as they got. Owls equalised on 30 mins after Hammoud was hauled to the ground in the box by their big clumsy number 6 and penalty awarded which Grant duly tucked away. 10 mins later saw Owls take the lead with some neat football in and around the Burnley box and Waldock made it 2. The last 5 mins of the second half saw saw Barnsley earn a penalty after a high boot in the area and they scored to make it 2-2. The U16s lost 4 nil to a bruising Barnsley side.

    U18s Owls v Stoke

    We looked solid mate tbh. We even rattled the bar from a free kick but im still scratching my head on how we fell apart in the 5 mins we lost 3 goals.
