Two years on, man’s death still a mystery POLICE have re-launched an appeal for information on the two-year anniversary of the discovery of a man’s remains in a rural field in Barnsley. Mystery still surrounds how Martin Radford, whose bones were found in a farmer’s field in Swaithe, Worsbrough, came to die, having been missing for three years at the time of his discovery. The 57-year-old’s skull – which had evidence of injury both before and after death but nothing considered suspicious by police – was found by children playing in the field on February 4, 2018, and further remains were found. However, bones from his arm, waist and shoulder were missing, and police still can’t ‘fully explain’ why they were not found – giving possible explanations of movement of top soil by the farmer and scavenging by predators, which would mean these were moved to rest outside the area of the search. Detective Inspector Rob Platts, who is leading the renewed investigation, told the Chronicle: “Martin’s death is still unexplained and wherever there’s a case that doesn’t have a conclusion, we

re-appeal to the public in the hope that someone will come forward with new information.” Martin, who was previously believed to have led a ‘transient lifestyle’, was unemployed and on benefits. It was his regular habit of withdrawing his benefit payments from his bank account on the day they arrived that led police to suggest the range of dates in which he is believed to have died. The last confirmed sighting of Martin was at an appointment on March 27, 2015, and his last benefit payment was on April 2, but this was not withdrawn.

He had lived on Linton Close, Kingstone, but at the time of his disappearance, Martin was staying at a property on Farm Road in Kendray after being evicted. An inquest, held on December 28, 2018, concluded there was no identifiable cause of death and questions remain as to exactly when he died. Det Insp Platts added: “His family members are aware of this renewed appeal and they, like us, want answers as to why Martin came to be in Swaithe. We don’t know why he was but we’ll hopefully receive new lines of enquiry for us to look at.”

n HEARTLESS ACT: Staff have been left ‘devastated’ by a break-in at a Hoyland charity shop. It was discovered on Thursday morning that the Barnsley Hospice shop on King Street had been burgled overnight. The thief is believed to have entered through the rear door. A laptop was stolen, the safe damaged and the contents of a donation box taken. The hospice estimates it will cost around £1,000 to replace the laptop and safe. Barnsley Hospice, based at Gawber, provides palliative care for anyone in the borough with a progressive life-limiting disease, including cancer, motor neurone disease and heart

disease. It has ten beds for inpatient care and provides day therapy services. Julie Ferry, chief executive of Barnsley Hospice, said: “We have been left devastated. It really is sickening that someone would do this to a charity which is helping people in the community. We’d like to thank everyone for their continued support and would urge anyone with information to contact the police.” Anyone with information on the incident should contact the police, quoting crime reference number 14/256/50/20. Pictured are Barnsley Hospice retail support manager Vicky Sanderson and volunteer Brenda Pickering.

Hospital pledge as parking row grows NURSES have been left with ‘four-figure bills’ from having their cars vandalised as a result of a long-running dispute over Barnsley Hospital staff parking on side streets, whistleblowers have claimed. Residential areas off Summer Lane, including Blackburn Lane and Welbeck Street, have become a ‘war zone’ between fed-up residents – who have resorted to putting their wheelie bins on the road 24/7 to prevent parking – and members of staff. Nurses told the Chronicle this week that several cars had been daubed with a ‘tar-like’ substance, resulting in four-figure bills to rectify the damage. “It’s been bad for a while and I understand residents’ frustration, but damaging people’s cars isn’t fair,” said one nurse, who did not wish to be named. “We’re not on huge wages and many of us can’t afford to pay hundreds of pounds a month on parking fees. “I have never parked illegally or blocked driveways, but I feel scared to leave my vehicle while I’m working, afraid of what I might come back to after having paid thousands in repair bills.” NHS trusts are responsible for making their own car parking

arrangements, including setting charges, and any profits must be reinvested into frontline care. Disabled people, frequent outpatient attenders, parents of sick children staying overnight and staff working night shifts will not have to pay for parking from April. Hospital bosses admitted that the current parking provision is simply not enough, with approximately 3,800 staff – excluding visitors – battling over 1,200 spaces. “The hospital site only has capacity for parking for about half of its staff and there’s insufficient capacity to cope with patient and visitor parking demand,” said Coun Peter Fielding, who represents the Dodworth ward. “Staff are increasingly suffering verbal abuse and damage to their vehicles from irate residents. It is becoming a very hostile situation. “The hospital would like to obtain a piece of land at Capitol Park to use as a park-andride service for both staff and patients and have set aside funding for the administration and operation of such a scheme, which I welcome.” The Old Town ward’s Coun Phil Lofts welcomed the government’s changes but said it would not address issues during the day.

“There is a shortfall of 1,700 parking spaces at the hospital and that pushes people to park on residential streets in Old Town and surrounding wards,” he said. “The concessions by the government, which ensure that blue badge holders can park in the hospital, are welcome. “But it does not make parking available for visitors and nor does it ensure day staff are able to park in the hospital’s car parks. “If we are to convince the hospital to accept their responsibility, then Barnsley Council must cease facilitating free hospital parking on its streets at the cost to Old Town residents and force the hospital to accept its responsibility to provide on-site parking for all their staff and visitors. “That can only be achieved by a residents-only parking zone.” A hospital spokesperson said: “We recognise that this is a long-standing and difficult situation for our neighbours, staff, visitors and patients. “We are continuing to invest where appropriate and we are working with the council to look at a number of options to try to improve the situation in as sustainable way as possible.”

Railway fanatic hopes for award A VOLUNTEER at South Yorkshire’s only heritage railway could gain national recognition after being nominated for an award. Aaron Luckarift, 21, is the operations manager at Elsecar Heritage Railway and has been nominated for the Lord Faulkner Young Volunteer gong at the Heritage Railway Association Annual Awards 2020. Aaron, who has been involved at Elsecar Heritage Railway for eight years, said he has no idea who nominated him, but he is excited about the opportunities it could bring to the railway.

“We are South Yorkshire’s only heritage railway so I’m hoping that just my nomination will bring more recognition to the railway and all the hard work we do here,” he said. “In the past year I have worked with the fire service to organise a number of exercises and I’ve been involved with the preservation of the trains. “The railway is like a second home to me and I am proud that I’ve been nominated for an award.” Aaron will find out if he is successful at a ceremony at Birmingham later this month.

New homes row A BATTLE is looming over plans for a massive housing development at Penistone. A groundswell of opposition is already forming over proposals for at least 450 new homes on land at Wellhouse Lane. Worried residents cite concerns over traffic congestion and an adverse impact on schools and health services. But the two firms behind the scheme say the homes are much-needed and that the development will deliver around £2m in funding for the community. More than 150 people filed into a consultation at the community centre – the opening shot in the planning process. However, Penistone ward councillor Hannah Kitching dismissed the session as ‘a box-ticking exercise’.

She added: “This is pristine greenfield land and I don’t believe this development is appropriate.” Town councillor David Wood said the plans by Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes were ‘a nightmare’. The land south of Halifax Road is allocated for housing development in Barnsley’s Adopted Local Plan (HS75). The proposed development will offer two, three and four-bedroom properties, of which around 30 per cent will be affordable homes. The companies say the proposals will also provide financial contributions to improve local services and facilities, including schools. A large number of jobs will also be created during construction. David Coe, development director at Barratt Homes, said:

Barnsley Independent, Tuesday, February 4, 2020 –

“Barnsley Council has recognised the need to release additional housing sites to meet its current and future needs. “This site is one of those identified for release for new housing. We believe the development will provide much-needed housing for people in a convenient and sustainable location. “We are committed to working with the community.” Mr Coe said money would be provided to upgrade schools and public transport with the scheme offering access to the interchange at Penistone. He said a planning application should be submitted to Barnsley Council by the end of February and added: “This is the first consultation on the plans. We are looking to meet ward and town councillors and individuals to hear their concerns.”

Lottery drops in to support Barnsley charity AN ATHERSLEY charity has been awarded nearly £220,000 in funding, extending its contract for another five years. Romero Communities has been given additional funding by the National Lottery Community Fund to continue its one-to-one drop-in service for local people experiencing employment, housing, health and relationship issues. Founded eight years ago, Romero Communities provides a free and confidential face-toface drop-in service for local

residents, aimed at helping people re-establish control over their lives. The new funding from The National Lottery Community Fund will enable the charity to reach more people, supporting them to increase their self-confidence, knowledge, and skills. Romero Communities will now launch a new ‘prevention work’ scheme, in partnership with three local primary schools, running awareness-raising activities on money management, budgeting, and the importance of saving aimed at

DOOR staff at Barnsley bars may be issued with ‘smart water’ aerosols to mark those involved in brawls so police can later identify them. Smart water is a liquid containing a unique code and is normally used to put an indelible mark on household property, as a deterrent to burglars, because stolen items can be easily identified. But under work done by South Yorkshire’s new Violence Reduction Unit, a panel of bodies made up of those with an interest in the night-

time economy is looking at issuing canisters to door staff. Each venue would have a different ‘code’ and the substance would remain on the skin for three months, allowing police to prove conclusively that individuals had been present when incidents have occurred and smart water discharged. Details were explained to Barnsley councillors by Mark Miller, a liaison officer responsible for ensuring VRU policies are put into action.

‘These few minutes could save your life’ SCREENING rates for cervical cancer which are said to be at a 20-year low in Barnsley resulted in action being kick-started in a bid to save more lives. The latest data for the town shows that 76 per cent of women eligible for cervical screening, aged between 25 and 64, have been screened adequately within the last three-and-a-half years. While that’s higher than the national average, health bosses in the borough have noted a downward trend locally, leading Barnsley Hospital to encourage as many women as possible to attend their smear test appointment as part of Cervical Cancer Prevention Week, which took place last month. However, the awareness week has been cited as a boost by health bosses and it’s something which will continue to be a top priority to increase the amount of women attending appointments. Colposcopist nurse Diane Brookes said: “Cervical screening isn’t a test for cancer, it’s a test to look for precancerous cells which, if left untreated, may develop into cancer. “For the sake of a two-minute procedure it helps save lives. “One of the biggest factors for getting cervical cancer is not

attending for your smear test, and we want to change that. “The prevention week was part of a dedicated drive to ensure people know how cervical cancer can be prevented.” In Barnsley, about 15 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year. Screening appointments in the area were extended to evenings and weekends last year to help women get appointments at a time most suitable to them. Public Health England said most screening results will be completely normal. And it has has estimated that if everyone attended screening regularly three-yearly for the 25 to 49 age group and five-yearly for 50 to 64-year-olds, then 83 per cent of cases could be prevented. Pat Harley, a retired school secretary from Barnsley, backed the campaign and said screening saved her life. The test found abnormal cells in Pat’s cervix and she was asked to book an appointment at Barnsley Hospital, where she underwent a minor operation. She added: “A family member had suggested that I didn’t need to bother going for my last smear test.

“I always intended to go, but it did make me wonder. In the end I decided to book it and I’m so thankful I did. “People should definitely go for cervical screening – it’s a few minutes that could save your life.” Dr Hussain Kadarsha, from the Barnsley Clinical Commissioning Group, said cervical cancer can be prevented through screening by picking up early changes in the cells before the disease develops, which happened in Pat’s case. “We know that younger women aged between 25 and 49 are less likely to attend a smear test which is obviously a concern, as cervical cancer is the most common cancer in women aged under 35, with eight women a day being diagnosed with the disease in the UK,” he added. “It can be prevented and the best way for women to protect themselves against cervical cancer is by ensuring they take up their cervical screening appointments. “We know that many women don’t attend their appointment for a variety of reasons, but we want to make sure that appointments are available at the best times to suit them.”

ONGOING concerns continue to be raised over drivers frequently ‘exceeding the speed limit’ on a Mapplewell road. Spark Lane, which stretches the length of Barugh Green and Mapplewell, has been a topic of debate at the Darton and North Area PACT meetings over the past few months. Coun Steve Hunt, who has been consistently vocal about the issue, raised concerns from local residents over drivers exceeding the speed limit frequently, and his worries over potential safety risks. The current speed limit on the road is 40mph in the section nearest Low Barugh, but this then reduces to 30mph as the road enters the builtup area in Mapplewell. At the most recent PACT meeting, Coun Hunt asked for more static or fixed cameras along the road to deter speeding. Sgt Richard Wilson, who chaired the Darton PACT meeting, said that there were ‘no more plans to put in fixed cameras at the moment’.

In December, police reported at a previous meeting that it had responded to Spark Lane concerns through deterrent work, speed surveys and cameras that monitor drivers’ speed. It was discussed that members of the PACT meeting would start a community speed watch group which will monitor vehicles on a 30mph road. The council is also buying two speed indicators to distribute around the borough. Although Coun Hunt believes that more work can still be done. “I receive regular reports of speeding on this road. There is no camera,” he said. “To reduce speeding I would suggest the site for community speed watch and for PCSOs to undertake periodic speed checks in the 30mph section. “I would also suggest Spark Lane as a location for a South Yorkshire Police speed camera van, as well as one of the locations for the new speed indicator devices being purchased by the council.”

Local police station is back in business

KIDZ CLUB: Members of the Real Music Centre line up for the camera for a tenth anniversary photograph.

New version of old classic A THEATRE company is bringing back one of its most popular productions to raise money for a children’s hospice. Wombwell’s Real Music Centre premiered The Kidz Are At It Again, showcasing the best young talent from the local area, six years ago at the town’s Playhouse Theatre. And the group has announced The Kidz Are At It Again... Again, which will return to the 200-seat theatre in March. Money raised from ticket sales, which have already surpassed the halfway mark, will go towards Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice. Mayor of Barnsley Coun Pauline Markham will be in attendance at the

show, which will see the cast supported by professional musicians and stage technicians. Angela Marper, administrator and partner in Real Music Centre, said: “This bodes well for us to reach our self-imposed target of £2,000 on the night, from ticket sales, raffle and the mandatory buckets for further voluntary donations.” Director Helen Ingham added: “It’s wonderful to see our younger members working so hard on another successful production, and they are relishing the opportunity to help Bluebell Wood.” Anna Gott, community fundraiser at Bluebell Wood, said: “We’re absolutely delighted that RMC Theatre have kindly

A CAMPAIGN by councillors to get police based at a disused local station in Barnsley has succeeded with a new team of officers to move in this month. It will see officers based at Hoyland for the first time in years and comes after persistent campaigning by the area’s councillors. They move in on February 24. Neighbourhood policing teams were scrapped by South Yorkshire Police as a cost cutting measure several years ago but have been successfully re-introduced by current Chief Constable Stephen Watson. Since locally based officers were lost, councillors worked continually to bring them back because although neighbourhood teams have been reintroduced, those responsible for the Hoyland district have been based miles away at Goldthorpe. South Yorkshire Police has been recruiting

new officers, financed with cash raised by Police and Crime Commissioner Dr Alan Billings, which has allowed expansion of neighbourhood teams. That has given police the opportunity to respond to representations made by councillors and Barnsley East MP Stephanie Peacock in recent years. The new police team will cover the same area as the South Area Council, which spans an area of Barnsley from Birdwell, through Hoyland and Wombwell to Darfield. However, the Rockingham and Hoyland wards have suffered crime spikes blamed on the absence of police and councillors from those areas have fought hard to get the new neighbourhood team in place. Coun Mick Stowe, who represents the Hoyland Milton ward, said they had objected to the loss of local officers and had then campaigned to get the station back into use.

boater from Barnsley set to End of the Sockman Dragon lead team in world championships as Anthony shuts up A MARKET stall that has been a staple of the town for more than 60 years has closed for business. George the Sockman was affectionately named after George Fenton, who established the stall. On Wednesday, Anthony Fenton, who took over trading duties from his dad after he retired in 2004, bid a fond farewell to the stall that began with his father. Anthony explained: “My dad started on a bus with a suitcase at the original old market. When the semi-open market got built he moved over there, where I started working with him when I left school at 16 years old, and then I eventually took over the stall in 2004 when my dad retired.” Anthony, 43, has been trading in Barnsley for more than 16 years but believes that it is now time for a change. “I’m closing up shop and spending some more time with my family,” he explained. “My partner is back working again, and we have a little boy called George, who was named after my dad before he passed away. “It has just come to a time now that seems right, with the changes to the market and changes of shifts.

FAREWELL: Anthony Fenton and his partner Danielle Blackburn. Picture: Kurt Fairhurst. PD088648

“I have been working four days a week and didn’t want to go to six. “I have a young family and obviously with the rents getting higher and major new developments happening, it felt it was the right time for a change.” Since taking over the stall, Anthony has experienced a lot of changes to the town centre, from the semi-open market to the newly developed Glass Works indoor market. “The market has all changed – obviously times have changed and moved on with people using the internet and online shopping. “But I have still loved it for all my life. “The highlight for me has been the customers, the regulars, the banter we have all day and

seeing everyone’s happy faces – I’ve absolutely loved every single minute of it.” Although George the Sockman is no longer open for business, Anthony has been reluctant to leave the customers who have stayed loyal to his and his father’s stall for more than 60 years. “I want to say a massive thank you to every single customer over the years, I’ve made a lot of good friends among the traders too. “I’ve seen customers grow up, grow old, and I’ve had a lot of my dad’s old customers too, so it really has passed through the generations. “I’m going to miss coming and I’m going to miss all of my friends at the market. “But I’m still going to come in and keep supporting them.”

A FORMER Barnsley man who took up dragon boat racing when he moved to Hong Kong will captain his side in a global competition. Simon Lunn, from Darton, will compete as captain in a team run by Australian chain Woolworths – where he works as head of logistics – in the IDBF Dragon Boat World Championships in Aix-les-Bains on France’s west coast. Simon, 43, moved to Hong Kong nine years ago and got a taste for dragon boat racing – working for Tesco and competing in the firm’s team – before moving to Sydney, Australia, three years later. His love affair with the sport, in which the watercroft is propelled by paddles and which is popular in that part of the world, continued, and he joined the New South Wales team as well as the team run by Woolworths, the largest supermarket chain in the country. The former Darton High School pupil will, in the IDBF tournament on August 24, skipper a side containing the captain of the Australian national team. “To become captain of the side when you’re English is very unusual,” said dad Melvyn, 71, of Church Street, Darton. “He’s done really well in a short period of time. Last year he was named paddler of the year by his team.” Simon now has dual nationality, having gained his Australian citizenship.

Before the world event, he will compete in the State Championships as part of the New South Wales dragon boat team in April.

Singer swaps mic for pen in mental health mission A SINGER who struggled with his mental health has written a book about his experiences which he hopes will help other people who are tackling similar issues. Matt Black, 33, is the lead singer of the Barnsley rock band Fahran. After years of struggling with his mental health, Matt decided to write a book about his experiences with the idea of helping other people. “I have suffered from anxiety and depression for as long as I can remember and it has affected my life drastically,” said Matt, of Great Houghton. “I tried so many things to try and run away from my problems and I was scared of being seen as ‘less of a man’ somehow. “But I got help a few years ago which was because I was seeing a lot more in the media about mental health and specifically men’s mental health, which spurred me on to ask for help.” Matt began writing a book about his struggles seven months ago with the hope that readers can learn from his mistakes. “The book originally came from writing a song,” said Matt. “The process of writing the song started the outpouring of emotions that I had previously kept inside and I found that I didn’t want to put music to something so personal. “I then thought about writing a blog but didn’t like the

Helping hand A THEATRE group for young adults with disabilities which has been supported by pop superstar Kylie Minogue has received a donation. Cross The Sky is a theatre company based at, and managed by, The Civic and made up of actors with learning and physical disabilities. Its original production ‘Up In The Attic’ will be performed at the town-centre venue on February 12. And at a recent rehearsal, the group was met by members of the West Riding Masonic Charity, who handed over £800 to cover a new keyboard and a computer and printer for the company’s administrative team. Freemason Barry Rollin explained: “The show they put on is absolutely brilliant. They were short of props and costumes, so we applied to the Masonic charities on behalf of our chapter. “People with disabilities are often isolated, but this group gives them a really big lift and we’re hoping they reap the benefits of the grant.” The group appeared on television over Christmas alongside Kylie, who became a fan after seeing a video of them performing her 2018 song ‘Dancing’.

pressure to keep updating it, which led me to the thought of writing a book. I never thought I could write a book but I found myself really enjoying it while I was writing. “It’s strange because I haven’t read a full book in many years, but I feel like I have dealt with my mental health the wrong way in the past, so I thought it would be nice to make a little guidebook of things you should definitely not do.” Matt self-published his book, called ‘Beyond the Nether – How Not to Deal With a Mental Illness’, and created the front cover, which he said gave him the freedom to make the book look exactly as he wanted it. “I was so nervous leading up to the publishing date, wondering whether I had done the right thing, but I have received some positive reviews and support which is great,” added Matt. “I want to help others to learn from my mistakes. There is no one-size-fits-all but I’m hoping that someone will read my story and take something positive away from it. “There are some things in the book that I haven’t told the people closest to me, so it was therapeutic to write.” Beyond the Nether – How Not to Deal With a Mental Illness is available to buy on Amazon or Kindle Books.

SIGNED UP: Wath Rugby Club’s Wendy Bray and chairman Bob West Sam Matavesi’s shirt. Picture: Kurt Fairhurst PD088630

Rugby club gets shirty ONE ACT of kindness has sparked another at Wath Rugby Club. The club gratefully received a signed Fijian rugby shirt from international Sam Matavesi after they unknowingly welcomed his step-dad to watch Sam’s debut for Northampton on TV. The hooker recently moved back to the UK after a spell with Toulouse and he played in last year’s Rugby World Cup in Japan. Chairman Bob West explained: “I presume his step-dad lives locally but it’s still a bit of a mystery. “We were happy to put the match on the television for him.

“It was on a Sunday after one of our junior games. “Then he turned up out of the blue with a shirt signed by Sam. It was a nice surprise.” The club actually has unusually strong links with Fiji. That is thanks to Barnsley-based former Harlequins Sevens player and army veteran Maika Burenivalu who has brought a host of his countrymen over ahead of attempting to join the Yorkshire Regiment of the British Army. “We have had ten Fijians play for our second team this season,” explained Bob.

When you contact us about your claim, there are some simple steps you can take to speed up and ease the process. Here is a checklist of information we may need from you: Create a clear timeline of events and incidents

Jenna Kisala Medical Negligence Specialist

so we can understand your situation quickly. Try to be specific about times, dates and locations, as well as who you saw and who treated you. Try keeping a note of meetings or incidents as you go along as dates may become foggy later. If you attend meetings or follow ups, ask for the notes, from the meetings, or bring someone along with you to take notes. Keep together all your correspondence, this could especially be helpful when trying to establish liability. Take pictures of any related injuries and/or related incidents. We cannot undo the negligence you have experienced, but we can help you seek the compensation and peace of mind you deserve. And it’s important to remember there is nothing to be afraid of from calling us – we are just like you, we just have a specific set of skills.

WAB competition...

Circus meets skating in a unique show CIRQUE du Soleil is gliding into the UK with Crystal, its coolest arena show yet This one-of-a-kind production blends circus arts and the world of ice skating in a stunning new show which will take the audience on a journey into a whimsical frozen playground where stunning skating combined with jaw-dropping acrobatic feats defy the imagination. The debut UK tour of Crystal will kick off in Sheffield and will be Cirque du Soleil’s seventh visit to the FlyDSA Arena, with four performances from March 6-8 at the venue’s intimate theatre-style Steel Hall setting. Crystal is the name of a creative young woman who feels misunderstood and out of sync with her environment. To escape, she ventures out onto a frozen pond and falls through the ice into an upsidedown world. This magical show invites audiences to suspend reality and glide into a world that springs into colourful life with astonishing visual projections and an original score that seamlessly blends popular music with the signature sounds of Cirque du Soleil. Featuring a multitude of ice skating styles from extreme and freelance to figure skating, audiences journey into the wonderful

world of Crystal in a unique show that’s set to capture imaginations across the UK. Created by Shana Carroll and Sebastien Soldevila, Crystal, our misfit heroine, takes you on an exhilarating tale of self-discovery as she dives into a world of her own imagination. Feel the adrenaline as she soars through this surreal world to become what she was always destined to be: confident, curious and creative. The show is suitable for all ages. The international cast of Crystal features 43 artists, plus

more than 40 crew members from 24 different countries. WAB is offering one lucky reader the opportunity to win a pair of tickets to the event. To win just answer this question: “In what year was Cirque du Soleil founded?” Send your answer along with your name and contact number to competitions@wearebarnsley. com or alternatively send your answer by post to WAB Cirque du Soleil, 47 Church Street, Barnsley, S70 2AS. The closing date is Monday February 17. Good Luck!

Reds set for drop if no improvement GERHARD STRUBER has told his Barnsley side to improve their setpiece defending – or face relegation from the Championship. The head coach’s comments followed Saturday’s 2-1 loss at Charlton Athletic, a fourth straight defeat in league and FA Cup. The London side led 2-0 at half-time from two set-piece goals. Although Cauley Woodrow pulled one back, the Reds’ defeat left them seven points from safety in second-bottom ahead of Saturday’s home derby against Sheffield Wednesday. Struber said: “It is a very disappointing defeat and it was not necessary, especially when you look at the second half, when we had very good chances. “The big difference was set-pieces once again. We don’t learn from the last games and it is always the same mistakes and we do not stay in our structure. That is why we have have zero points. It is so, so disappointing and I have no words for my feelings. “Set-plays are a part of football and, in the set-play situation, we are not ready for the Championship now. “This is the reality. In all the other phases of play, we are good enough for the Championship, but not in the set-plays. “I believe we can stay in the league, but we have to change our mindset for set-plays.

“It makes it worse because we spent a lot of time in training on setpieces and in the end we have no improvement. “We have the same problems and we make no step in the right direction. It is very frustrating.” Charlton earned only their second win in 18 Championship games through Lyle Taylor and Andre Green. Taylor poked home the opener after Jason Pearce flicked on a freekick, and Pearce won the ball in the air again in first-half stoppage time before Green drove home. Woodrow pulled one back after the break for Barnsley with an angled shot, his 11th goal of the season, but they were unable to rescue a point. The win moved Charlton up to 19th, and manager Lee Bowyer said: “It should have been more comfortable really, and I’d rather it had been a bit prettier at times. Some of the players coming back from injury are a bit rusty. “We didn’t pass it how we normally would and the pitch was dry. “But the most important thing at this stage of the season is three points – it doesn’t matter how you get it. “You have to dig in sometimes and grind out results, and that is what we have just done.” Sheffield Wednesday are 11th in the table after a goalless draw against Millwall at Hillsborough. They wil be seeking a first win in three.

Band makes its point via new video

A BARNSLEY rock band has released a new video to accompany its single about animal exploitation. Hands Off Gretel has announced a headline tour for Spring 2020 (including Leeds Brudenell Social Club on February 27 and Sheffield Leadmill on March 28) and an EP Angry, which will be released on the band’s own record label – Puke Pop Records – on March 6. To go with the announcement, the band – described as a mix of

riot grrrl and grunge mixed with bubblegum pop – have released an online video to Milk, a song which comes from the 2019 album I Want The World. “Milk is a song I wrote about animal exploitation, which is something I’m so passionate about raising awareness of,” said guitarist and vocalist Lauren Tate. “I’d say it’s one of the heaviest songs we play live and a personal favourite because it means so much and the lyrics deeply resonate with me.

“The imagery in the video portrays animal testing and shows myself and (bass player) Becky (Baldwin) covered with meat cuts. “The industry is full of vile practices and seeing that in human form will hopefully help people make the connection. I wrote the song about animals, and although this can be related to all forms of exploitation, I wanted the video to be a bold statement ‘not your mother, not your milk’.” n To watch the video, search for Hands Off Gretel Milk.

There is just one simple rule in Sudoku. Each row and each column must contain the numbers 1 to 9, and so must each 3x3 box. This is a logic puzzle, and you should not have to guess.

Each pair of words has a missing word between them that acts as a link to both (eg FRONT - DOOR - MAT). The shaded squares of the six answers (reading downwards) will spell out a random word.
