Scotland Signs New Barnsley Deal
Thursday, 16th May 2013 11:17
Former Blue Jason Scotland has signed a new one-year deal with Barnsley. The 34-year-old, whose six goals in six league starts and 12 sub appearances helped the Tykes to avoid the drop into League One, left Town by mutual consent in January and joined Barnsley on a short-term contract later that month.
Manager David Flitcroft is delighted that the Trinidadian will remain at Oakwell next season: “Jason has enthusiasm, energy and desire. He is a fantastic person who wants to help support the younger players in the squad and pass on his superb knowledge about the game.
“Everyone who watches Jason knows about his goalscoring abilities, but it is also the other side of him that really excites me because this is a player who has tremendous experience, know-how and drive that will benefit everyone.
"It's great to have Jason signed and I am hopeful we can follow this up with others in the coming weeks."
In March, Blues boss Mick McCarthy admitted that he might have made an error by allowing Scotland to move on and join one of Town’s then-relegation rivals.

I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.
Green’Un With Envy by ElephantintheRoom
I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.

Classic standing terraces, a reckless Lee Martin and of course Darren Ferguson. These are the things that first come to mind when I think of Peterborough.
Heart of Darkness by Stowmarket
Joseph Conrad’s short novel Heart of Darkness is one of my favourite books. It is based on the real events which the writer experienced first-hand while travelling up the Congo river. It asks serious questions about empire-building and racism.
