GK: Brad Collins
Having cemented his place as Barnsley’s first choice between the sticks during their hugely impressive late-season run, Brad Collins looks likely to be in possession of the number one shirt for the 2021/22 curtain-raiser.
The 24-year-old joined from Chelsea on a free transfer in 2019 and produced surely the best form of his Oakwell career through the first few months of 2021.
With nine clean sheets in 22 games, Collins showcased his quality as a Championship shot-stopper and it would be a surprise to see him lost his place.
He should be high in confidence heading into the new season and at 24, his best years should be ahead of him.
