We can confirm that Danny Benson has joined Avenue on a months loan from Barnsley FC.
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.
After last nights game, we spoke to Mark Bower on the signing and he said;
“Yeah he came in last minute, no prior training with the squad but he slotted in alongside Luca Havern, dealt with everything they (Scarborough) threw at us really well. Got to say a huge thank you to Barnsley for helping us get it through so quickly.”
