Young quartet get Tykes deal
Barnsley have handed four more second-year academy players professional contracts.
Defenders Sam Patterson, Jake Scott and Matty Steade, plus midfielder Brad Kilburn will join fellow teenagers Jordan Clark, Danny Rose, John Stones and Paul Digby in Keith Hill's first-team squad next season.
"I'm very, very pleased with the amount of lads who have earned pro deals," academy manager Ronnie Branson told the club's official website.
"They have been an excellent group all season and have excelled both on and off the field.
"To get seven through from one year group is incredible. A lot of hard work has gone into it from all of the backroom academy staff.
"I've got to give Keith Hill credit as well, he's given youth a chance and he's put faith into the academy."
