MONCUR SAYS THE BEST IS YET TO COME...
A SETTLED George Moncur can only get better in a Barnsley shirt. That’s according to the man himself, anyway.
The 23-year-old has not had the easiest time of it since Paul Heckingbottom splashed out £500,000 on his signature from Colchester United.
He was sent out to League One Peterborough on loan within his first six months at Oakwell.
But, with his manager calling on him to knuckle down and show his capabilities, Moncur has taken the message to heart.
That’s something he’s done in his personal life as well as on the pitch, adjusting to a brand new way of living to help finally settle down in South Yorkshire.
“I want to play at Barnsley and I am really happy I am getting in the team now. All the lads are class and everyone has been brilliant,” said the Swindon-born midfielder.
“The fans have been great and I have seen some stuff on social media, which I am really happy with. I hope to do more for them.
“I want to show the best attitude to the gaffer and the fans to play here.
“If I keep getting game time and do the right things, then I am sure I will excite a few people and I think I can bring a lot to the team.
“When I first came and signed, it was a bit of a shock to me as I had never lived on my own and been away from my family. I don’t think my head was in the right place.
“Though I had signed for a Championship team, I think what matters off the field is important as well and I was not really settled in myself.
“Now I have my girlfriend and my house and I’m much more settled. That plays a big part in it.”
