Barnsley Striker Arrives

22 July 2016

WE are pleased to announce that speedy Barnsley striker Kayden Jackson has joined the club on a season long loan deal.

He originally come to prominence by winning a TV competition for budding footballers and earning himself a contract with Swindon Town. Then moving onto the Tamworth for a season, before joining Conference side Wrexham.

He was a regular member of our first team this year, with a total of 36 appearances in the league, although often coming off the bench in the first half of the season, before becoming a starter after Christmas.

His performances saw a number of Football League scouts take in our games and he also attracted the attention of Paul Fairclough, who selected him for the recent England C trip to the Ukraine, in which he scored during a 2-0 success. He was reported to be the quickest player in the National League last season and is said to be the quickest at Oakwell. 

The 22-year-old made the switch to Oakwell in May 2016.  

He will go straight into Paul Hurst's side to face Sheffield United tomorrow. 

Listen to the Kayden's first interview.
