Hill In At Oakwell

Seventeen days after Mark Robins' resignation, Barnsley Football Club have appointed Keith Hill as first team manager at Oakwell.

Hill, who was in charge previously at Rochdale, has penned a rolling one year deal to take charge of The Reds, bringing his assistant David Flitcroft with him from The Dale.

At 42 years of age, Hill is a young manager but already has a great pedigree, having taken Rochdale from the wrong end of League 2 to three points off the League One Play-Offs in the space of four years.

Barnsley's General Manager Don Rowing said of the appointment: 'We are delighted to have got a first choice for the position of first team manager.' Rowing was speaking to the club's official website.

The appointment of Hill looked dead in the water just over a week ago, when talks broke down between the parties and Hill told the BBC: 'We've decided to stay at Rochdale because we are ambitious but we're also happy in our work here.'

Today however, the club announced at a press conference at Oakwell that Hill has been appointed at long last, and preparations can finally begin for the 2011/12 season which kicks off on August 6th.
