BARNSLEY IDEAL FOR CONNOLLY
ENGLAND international John Stones and hot prospect Mason Holgate joined Everton from Barnsley – and now Callum Connolly has taken the journey in the opposite direction on a month’s loan.
The 18-year-old is relishing the opportunity to get some first-team football under his belt at the Tykes.
“Stonesy and Mason played here regularly and they said they loved it when I spoke to them,” said Connolly. “Over the last year or so I’ve been an all-round player. I’ve played left-back, right-back, centre-back and in midfield. Luckily I can play in many positions, hopefully that can benefit me when I play for Barnsley.”
