BARNSLEY have signed Mike Phenix from AFC Telford for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old striker has penned a contract that will run to summer 2016.

He said: "I'm chuffed to bits - it's a bit overwhelming if I'm honest. My manager told me about the interest and it was a no-brainer.

"I'm used to training on Tuesday and Thursday nights so I'm looking forward to training every day to get as fit as I can."

Phenix, who was on Bolton Wanderers’ books as a youngster, has had a swift climb up the league system and was playing for local side Hindsford just two years ago.
