"We're looking forward to seeing the results over the next few years."

Sport England's chairman Nick Bitel, said: "A year on from the Olympics, this National Lottery investment is helping us deliver a lasting sporting legacy in Barnsley."

The club is one of more than 300 projects across England receiving lottery investment from the fourth round of the Inspired Facilities fund.
