A SOCIAL club where gamers can go to play video games could open on Barnsley's Arcade.

Video gamer Josh Slack has revealed plans to open the social club in the town centre to help gamers to meet like-minded friend and learn new skills.

He said: "I've made enquiries about premises on the Arcade where I aim to create a place to get the kids and teenagers out of their bedrooms and off the streets to bring them together as a community.

"I've had huge support from the public so far, and I'm talking to the council about a £2,000 business grant to help make the project come to life."

Josh is currently studying film and visual effects at University Campus Barnsley and now earns enough as a professional gamer to enable him to continue with his studies.
