PRE-SEASON got underway for the Reds on Friday evening with a 1-1 draw against Club Brugge.

The sun shone on Oakwell and the home side rewarded the 3,000-strong crowd with a spectacular strike from Chris Dagnall in the 10th minute.

The 13-time Belgian champions were quick to respond and levelled a minute later through Victor Vasquez's deflected effort.

Youngsters such as Paul Digby, Sam Patterson, Jake Scott and Jordan Clark all impressed, with the latter rattling the bar late on.

David Flitcroft said: "It was the first proper run-out for the lads that started and the lads that came on gave us a real impetus. I enjoyed the match and it was very useful for us."
