BARNS­LEY IDEAL FOR CON­NOLLY

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

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.”
