In Barnsley’s first season back in the Championship, the South Yorkshire side has exceeded all expectations as they sit 11th in the table with a top ten finish looking a real possibility.

One of the main reasons for Barnsley’s success has been Paul Heckingbottom who has proved to be one of the best young managers in the Football League.
