Frickley Academy under 11s player Noah Harding has signed a one-year deal with Barnsley FC Academy for the 2016-17 season to play in their under 12s after impressing during a six-month trial spell at Oakwell.
It is yet another success story of Frickley Academy’s dedication to develop local talent and help them reach the highest standard they can.
Noah’s Frickley coach, Darren Greene, said: “I’m delighted for Noah, he has endless talent but more importantly works hard and has a great attitude.
“I am sure he will be fantastic at Barnsley. Using our link as a feeder club to Barnsley FC we sent up five players this year and everyone has benefitted from the experience with Noah being the one to impress the most.
“I hope he is the first of many to progress into either professional club academies or through our age groups and into the semi-professional first team at Frickley Athletic.”
