BARNSLEY Schoolboys under 14s were confirmed as league champions after an 8-1 away win against Rotherham.

Owen Hardman and Oliver Bentley scored two goals apiece. Josh Kenchington, Logan Clifford, Charlie McManus and Henry Crump added to the tally. Manager Dunc Bray said: “I am proud of the lads for winning the league and finishing six points ahead of their closest rivals Leeds.”

The under 14s are now focusing, along with the under 15 boys, on an international Easter tournament in the Netherlands.
