BARNSLEY Football Club have announced that Bobby Hassell has signed a new one-year deal that will see him play at Oakwell for a tenth season.

With 295 appearances for the Reds under his belt, Hassell will be looking to join the elite 300 club.

Hassell, who recently became a father for the fourth time, said: "I’m really happy I’ve been able to sign a new contract. I’m happy with the deal and I’m looking forward to the start of the new season.

"This summer has been quite hectic for me. I’ve been on coaching courses and with my wife in and out of hospital with our fourth child that's the main reason it's taken time get everything sorted out with a new contract here.

"I've never had so many people stop me in the street begging me to sign a new contract which is quite humbling, but at that time I hadn’t spoken to anyone because I was more concerned about my wife’s illness and the baby."

Great stuff.
And by the sounds of things accepting a 70% wage cut shows there is still loyalty in football.
All hail Sir.Bobby

(Now can someone make sure we sort out Steele's contract)
