Stuart Gibson has been appointed development coach at Oakwell and begins work next week when pre-season begins.

The UEFA ‘A’ License holder has managed Norwegian club Steinkjer FK and worked with the youth team at Plymouth Argyle for five years.

He will be working with the youngsters in the Barnsley squad who have made the transition from the academy to the first team squad. Jacob Butterfield, Reuben Noble-Lazarus and Jamil Adam will be joined by the likes of Jordan Hibbert and Onome Sodje working with Gibson to force their way in to Simon Davey’s first team plans.
