Alex Kiwomya, Ben Pearson and George Waring are all of the players that have joined the English League One club Barnsley on loan deals. All of these players are very young with an age that vary from 18 to 20 years old but despite their fairly inexperience on playing in a senior team, the manager of Barnsley Danny Wilson believes that these new signings have what it takes to play in League One.
“We’ve brought in these new players because we believe that they can cope in League One. That’s why we’ve done it.” Danny Wilson said as he expressed his confidence in the youngsters that he has signed.
The 20 year old Ben Pearson made his debut in Barnsley’s 2-0 victory against Yeovil Town and he was awarded with the man of the match awarded for everything he did in the pitch as he helped his new team on clinching an important victory.
Pearson is hoping that he can continue this momentum as he went on saying that his time spent playing in the reserve team of Manchester United is a lot different than playing with Barnsley in the League One.
“Barnsley is a massive club, so as soon as there was interest I wanted to join the club. Playing here is a great stepping stone for me; it’s a good chance to test myself in men’s football. I’ve played a lot of reserve team football at Manchester United, but it’s a different level playing in league football.
“It was great to win the man of the match award on my debut, so hopefully I can win a few more. The manager Wilson has just asked me to enjoy myself and get on the ball as much as possible, so that’s what I’ll try and do.” Ben Pearson told the media.
While there have been a number of players that have been added to the team of Danny Wilson, there has also been one player who recently left the club as Keith Treacy left by mutual consent from his 2 year contract at the club.
