Super Bobby signs new deal

Super Bobby signs new deal

Great news for Reds fans as defender/midfielder, Bobby Hassell signs a new deal until the Summer of 2012.

Speaking to barnsleyfc.co.uk, Hassell said: 'Simon Davey has shown a lot of faith in me during the last three seasons and working with him and the opportunities he has given me, I believe has made me a much better player. I think I have improved after spending time in midfield and my awareness of the game is a lot better now.'

The Olympics will be in London by the time Bobby Hassell's new deal runs out, and with a bumper-crowd at Oakwell tomorrow, his new deal will certainly delight the masses:

'I am over the moon to have signed a new deal here at Barnsley. We have been talking for the last six weeks and to sign a three-and-a-half year deal is brilliant. I did have a few offers on the table from other clubs and they were more attractive deals financially but this is where I want to play my football.

'I am very happy being here. I have always been happy at Barnsley Football Club and this is where I see my future. I have had nothing but success during my five years here at the Club. We were down in the bottom half of League One when I arrived and we have gone on to win promotion through a memorable Play Off Final at the Millenniums Stadium; enjoyed three years in the Championship and been to Wembley for a FA Cup Semi Final'.

Bobby has clocked up 180 appearances for the Reds since Paul Hart brought him from Mansfield in 2004:

'It has been a great time for Barnsley Football Club over the last five years and I think we have had more success on the pitch than many clubs when you look at going to Cardiff and Wembley'.
