Barnsley have appointed a new chief executive following last week`s appointment of a new chairman.

Ben Mansford is the man coming in to the role. He is a sports lawyer and will leave his current role as director of a global sports marketing and management media group.

His previous work has involved negotiating contracts in the UK and abroad for players and handling regulatory issues with the football authorities.

Is it me or are the club now employing people who know how to run a football club the right way?

On the face of it, it certainly seems like more great news for Barnsley.
