JACK­SON’S GOT BUZZ AT TYKES

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

AF­TER an ag­o­nis­ing wait, striker Simeon Jack­son has ex­pressed his de­light at fi­nally agree­ing a deal with Barns­ley.

Cana­dian in­ter­na­tional Jack­son has been on trial at Oak­well since July, but only put pen to pa­per on a con­tract on Thurs­day.

The 28-year-old said: “I’m buzzing. I want to say thanks to the gaffer (Lee John­son) and staff for let­ting me be a part of what they’re do­ing.

“I’ve been here a while, so I’m de­lighted to fi­nally be a part of the squad. I’ve been in with the lads, so I’ve had time to get to know them.

“They’re a great group to be with. There are some tal­ented young play­ers with loads of po­ten­tial.”
