Bobby Hassell reached 200 starts for Barnsley in their victory over Middlesbrough.

The defender, who turned 30 over the summer has been at the club since the summer of 2004, surviving arrival of three new managers and forcing his way into their plans every time.

Bobby joined the Reds from Mansfield Town, when Paul Hart was at the helm. He has played at right back, centre half and even central midfield throughout his Barnsley career, becoming very versatile and proving himself to be a very able vice-captain.

Hassell is the club’s longest serving current player and is the latest player to reach 200 starts for Barnsley since Chris Morgan, who left in 2003.
