BARNS­LEY have bol­stered their de­fence by sign­ing Matty Pear­son from Ac­cring­ton Stan­ley.

The 24-year-old has signed a three-year deal, with a one-year op­tion, for an undis­closed fee.

As well as his de­fen­sive du­ties, Pear­son can also get on the score­sheet – he scored nine goals for Stan­ley last term.

Tykes boss Paul Heck­ing­bot­tom said: “For a tall full-back, Matty has some ex­cep­tional qual­i­ties we feel we can work with and make bet­ter. He has heard every­thing we had to say and re­ally bought into our ideas of what we want to do at the club.”
