Barnsley have today confirmed that Chief Executive Ben Mansford has now left Oakwell to join up with Leeds United.

Our CEO leaves for Elland Road with immediate effect, and the club have appointed Linton Brown as acting Chief Executive for the immediate future.

He begins in that position equally with immediate effect.

The former professional footballer now boasts an impressive and experienced off pitch career within the football industry and the brief statement released by Barnsley quotes the ‘significant progress’ that’s been made commercially at the club since he joined in 2014 – citing his part as the ‘driving force’ behind that being key.

Whether Brown is in the frame for the permanent position or not, that will take a future announcement from the club.
