We can confirm today that Barnsley Defender Danny Benson has joined the Club on loan until 2nd January 2024.

A commanding centre-back, Danny has progressed through the ranks at Oakwell since joining the Reds’ youth set-up in October 2017. He signed as a first-year scholar in July 2020.

After impressive performances during the 21/22 campaign in the Professional Development League, he was rewarded with a call-up to the first team and was on the bench for Barnsley’s Emirates FA Cup third round clash with Barrow AFC.

Danny featured in Barnsley’s 22/23 pre-season under Michael Duff and went onto make his senior debut in their Papa John’s Trophy outing against Lincoln City in August 2022.

Fans may remember Benson from last season, who briefly joined on a youth loan and appeared in a 0-0 draw vs Scarborough Athletic at the Horsfall, and also came on as substitute vs Telford United.
