JOHN Stones was back in Barnsley last week - just two days after making his Premier League debut in Everton's 1-0 win against Jose Mourinho's Chelsea.

Stones, from Penistone, came on late in the game then made the trip to Oakwell to watch Barnsley's under 21s win against Nottingham Forest.

While there, he was also presented with a plaque containing pictures of his debuts for the Reds and England under 19s by academy coaches Ronnie Branson and Mark Burton.

"John came to the club when he was eight, spent nine years in the academy and then six months in the first team," said Ronnie.

"He's now playing for a Premier League club and being tipped for England, so everyone who's worked with him here deserve to be very proud. It's a brilliant achievement for Barnsley."
