Youngsters in scam danger VULNERABLE youngsters in Barnsley are facing an increased risk of being exploited by criminals due to the government’s controversial Universal Credit benefits system, according to an anti-fraud team in the town. Although there’s only been four incidents so far, officers have warned that they believe there’s been a reluctance to report and the true number of cases could be much higher. The roll-out of the revised scheme – which was intended to simplify what was thought to be a complicated benefits system – has left some claimants in a ‘highly vulnerable’ position and prey to criminals, they say. According to fraud prevention officer Andy Foster, a Universal Credit scam occurs when a suspect contacts a vulnerable youngster, takes their details and an application to receive benefit payments is made on their behalf. Andy said: “What happens then is that the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) approves the claim, and the money is transferred to the victim’s account. “While he or she might think they are getting some money, as soon as it lands in their account, a hefty ‘fee’ is demanded by the suspect, who continues to take cash from the victim as they’re in control of the account. “This then leaves the victim owing

the entire amount to the DWP and this can lead to a bad credit rating. “Students in particular may also find that they are unable to gain student loans or, in extreme cases, have their bank account closed. “The impact this has on the individual and their family cannot be underestimated. Victims are left embarrassed, ashamed and don’t want to admit they’ve fallen for a scam. “By raising awareness of these types of crime, we hope that less people will fall victim and will also make their friends aware.” Operation Signature has been rolled out by police across the town as a result of growing concerns – focusing on protecting those deemed to be at high risk – which has seen each of Barnsley’s six neighbourhood policing teams tasked with advising vulnerable people about the potential pitfalls of fraud. Andy added: “We believe criminals, in particular organised crime groups, are targeting 16 to 18-year-olds because they know financial organisations will not discuss their accounts with parents or guardians, without the account holder’s consent.” n If you think you’ve been a victim, call 101 or report it to Action Fraud online at actionfraud.police.uk or on 0300 1232040.

INBRIEF...

A FORMER snooker world champion had to forfeit his World Open qualifier after driving to the ‘wrong Barnsley’. Australian Neil Robertson, who lives in Cambridge, made the blunder after setting his satnav for the village of Barnsley, Gloucestershire – while his opponent Ian Burns waited at the Metrodome, 170 miles away. The 37-year-old has visited the Metrodome before, playing at last year’s International Championship qualifiers in October. Robertson said on Twitter: “When I realised there was a second Barnsley, it was too late.”

Hopes high for charity’s growth BIG BROTHER contestant Sian Hamshaw cut the ribbon to open a charity’s new office. Sian, 26, who starred in Big Brother in 2018, was on hand to welcome the charity HOPE to its new office based on Regent Street in the town centre. HOPE (Helping Others Positively Engaged), is an organisation which helps individuals improve their quality of life. They run a cooking course, healthy holiday workshops and a toddler group. The founder, Peter Robertshaw, had been running the charity from home but wanted to

provide a more proactive space for his volunteers, and began searching for an office. “Our charity is solely run by volunteers and this office space will allow them to come and go as they please and allow us to work more productively,” said Peter. “We opened in 2017 and our courses and toddler groups are a real success. “This base will also allow us to become more established as we are in a professional environment.” The charity plans to expand and offer job support, mental health

support and a befriending service. “The new office will allow us to move forward and grow. We are still recruiting for volunteers to help us with the classes and groups that we run,” added Peter. Sian said: “The charity plays an important role for several families, especially those that may not know how to cook. Food is a big part of life and those who move into their own place and don’t have support will benefit from this charity as their classes teach basic cooking skills that you may not learn watching a YouTube video.”

Help for former forces personnel AN ARMED forces charity will operate a welfare stand once a month. The Royal British Legion will run the facility at the Library @ the Lightbox to allow former military personnel to more easily access any help they need. “We have joined with the local Churchfield branch to create this dropin for people who may have barriers to accessing help over the internet or phone,” said case officer Andy Wallace. “We want to make sure there are no barriers to people getting the help they need and if we are in an easily

Dorothy’s delight at sprinter’s silver medal

CUP FOR CHARITY: Sophie Blackwell, shift supervisor at the Pavilion at the Gateway Plaza, serves up another coffee in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

DOROTHY HYMAN is pleased that the 59-year wait for a British women to emulate her medal in a major 100m event is over. Dina Asher-Smith took silver at the World Championships in Doha, Qatar – almost six decades after Cudworth woman Hyman (right) claimed silver in the 1960 Rome Olympics. “I watched it and I thought she was amazing,” said Dorothy, who also won a bronze over 200m in 1960. “She’s a lovely runner. She comes across as a really, really nice person. “I didn’t really think about the fact that I was the last woman to win a medal , it’s amazing that is has been 59 years. “When things like this happen, and your name

gets mentioned, you do reminisce about your career. I know that, out and about in Barnsley, people will stop me to say they heard my name on the television. It’s always nice to be remembered.” Dorothy, who also won gold in the European Championships and Commonwealth Games, competed in the 1964 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan – where Asher-Smith is hoping to win more medals when the games return there next year. “It is looking good for her next year at the Olympics in Tokyo. But I just hope she stays fit because, in 1963, I was the fastest in the world but I got a niggle in early 1964 and I didn’t perform to my best in Tokyo in 1964.” Asher-Smith is 23, the

Clampdown on counterfeit perfume TRADING Standards are working alongside Barnsley Council after officers seized counterfeit perfume being sold in the town centre. Sellers were reported by shoppers, who told officers that they claimed the goods were stolen. A statement said: “Barnsley Council received several reports of people in the town centre selling counterfeit perfume. We seized a carrier bag full of counterfeit perfumes and aftershaves earlier this week. “We urge people to always purchase such items from trusted stores in the town centre. “Barnsley Council continue to

work with Trading Standards on the matter.” A public space protection order (PSPO) is in place on Peel Street, Midland Street, Peel Square, Wellington Street, Eldon Street, Race Street, Peel Parade, Market Hill, County Way and Sackville Street, which effectively bans perpetrators of antisocial behaviour from entering the town centre. More than 500 dispersal orders have been issued in the town centre since its inception three years ago, with those who continue to flout the measure – such as illegal sellers and beggars – facing prosecution.

It’s a footballing first for Barnsley MP Stephanie BARNSLEY East MP Stephanie Peacock took part in the first ever 11-a-side game of the Women’s Parliamentary Football Club. Facing Lewes FC Women, the match brought together parliamentarians from all sides of the political divide in their first full-scale competitive match. The game was won 4-2 by Lewes. Despite it being their first game of 11-a-side football, this isn’t the first time the Women’s Parliamentary Football Club have made headlines. Last year the Barnsley East MP received a ticking-off from House of Commons Speaker John Bercow, after playing football in the Commons chamber after-hours to promote the launch of

the women’s team and sport for women. Despite the controversy, the local MP maintains the club is a great way of bringing people together. “Football plays a huge role in our community, and whilst we often focus on the differences between clubs and fans the sport brings people together from amateur games on a Sunday morning to Saturday afternoons at Oakwell,” she said. “Whilst I won’t be running out for the Reds any time soon, it was great to have a kickabout with members from across the political spectrum and remind ourselves that even in these divided times we still all have more in common.”

Cabinet spokesperson Coun Jenny Platts added: “We all want to have a town centre which is vibrant, safe and welcoming. The PSPO continues to be an important tool in making that a reality but we also want to ensure that those in need are able to access the relevant support services. “We are working with partners and voluntary organisations to focus our resources on helping the people most in need, while at the same time continuing to address antisocial behaviour.” n You can also report incidents to Barnsley Council’s Safer Neighbourhood Service by emailing safer@barnsley.gov.uk.

you had to have another job. You didn’t have the team around you like they do now. I am not sure I would have like this era, though. There is a lot of pressure on the runners because they all have sponsors. There are good things and bad things about both eras but I am happy with the career I had.” The attendances in Doha have been very low, with Asher-Smith completing a lap of honour in a nearly empty stadium, a contrast to the 1960 Olympics in which the athletics was held at the Stadio Olimpico. “It’s awful to see the empty stadiums and sad for the runners. In Rome, it was a terrific atmosphere in a packed stadium.”

Jeepers creepers – Jolly Good festival is coming to Rabbit Ings Country Park SOMETHING spooky is coming to a popular park. The Creepy Carnival will be at Rabbit Ings Country Park, Royston, bringing vintage fairground rides, circus entertainers and a spooky experience to thrill and entertain families of all ages in a fundraising event organised by Jolly Good Communities. Jolly Good Communities is the brainchild of event planner and Brierley resident Victoria Agnew, who wants to help and encourage local groups and individuals make a difference in their community through event organising and passing on her skills. Victoria, right, said: “My childhood was filled with street parties, especially at Halloween, for the children on my cul-de-sac. Throughout school and college I always volunteered to organise Girl Guides fundraisers, celebra-

tions and theme events. Years later I realised that’s where my passion lay. “Seeing people coming together, smiling and forgetting about their troubles is what really matters to me.” The Jolly Good team she has assembled so far have organised free events this year in the local

community such as Medieval May-hem at Monk Bretton Priory, enjoyed by 3,000 visitors, plus family play days at Rabbit Ings and much more. “The Creepy Carnival is our biggest event by far and helps us fund more free events that everyone can enjoy in the local community next year. We are really pushing the boat out and would like everyone to help us achieve this and support us by coming to Creepy Carnival,” said Victoria. Jolly Good Communities are currently recruiting volunteers in the local community to help at this fundraising event and other roles in their operations. If you could spare some time and would like to make a difference to the community, the Jolly Good Team would love to hear from you. The event takes place on October 19 and 20.

Council confident despite traders stalling on rent A THIRD of traders at Barnsley’s new flagship market hall were in debt with their council rent bills within months of the Glass Works complex opening, it has emerged, with almost a fifth of the cash owed to the council remaining unpaid. Figures for the period from early November to the end of July show the council was expecting income of £603,027 in stall rents money needed to help cover the costs of the development, but only £486,457 had been paid, according to the Local Democracy Reporting Service. While 54 traders were up to date with their rents, another 28 were behind, with speculation from the National Market Traders Federation Barnsley that some businesses simply lack the income to settle their bills because of poor turnover. Barnsley Council has insisted, however, footfall at the market is strong. Council officials recently took the decision to halve rents for traders in the upstairs section of the market, in response to complaints about poor trade, but that move has caused division with some of those who will not

benefit from the change staging a protest last week. Leader of the Liberal Democrat group, Coun Hannah Kitching, said: “I am gravely concerned about the situation with the market traders and the market itself. Clearly things are not working. “Having to drop rents is an admission that things are not working and halving the rent for traders upstairs is the wrong strategy and is proving divisive, causing a lot of upset among the traders.” Keiron Knight, the NMTF Barnsley group spokesman described the cut to rents as ‘the latest knee jerk reaction’ from the council to problems with the market. “Barnsley Council has now clearly stated upstairs in the Glass Works is the worst trading area in Barnsley, hence the rent reduction.” The shortfall in rental income would have to be made up with money from the taxpayer, he said. “The 28 traders who owe a combined debt of £116,570 up to the end of July must be really concerned, but we don’t know what percentage are upstairs and how many are downstairs. “As the NMTF group

keep highlighting all is not lost yet, with a change of management a new team committed to working with the NMTF group and the traders, we all think Barnsley Market could return to being one of the best markets in the country,” he said. Council leader Sir Steve Houghton said he ‘totally rejected’ the suggestion the latest rent adjustment had been a knee-jerk reaction, and accused opposition councillors of ‘stirring the pot’ for political gain. “The proposals that we brought forward came from market traders themselves. We consulted with the wider market and two thirds of traders were in favour, so it certainly wasn’t a knee-jerk reaction – this was asked for by the traders themselves,” he said. “We’ve got £180m of investment going into the town centre which is building a future for the town. “While many other towns are in freefall and decay, that’s not the case in Barnsley. “The town is doing well in very difficult circumstances, but we all need to talk Barnsley up.” Coun Tim Cheetham, cabinet spokesman for place, added: “The

majority of market tenants are better off, as they are being billed at a level which is 20 per cent less than the rent contained in the lease agreement. “We also work closely with businesses in a position of debt by offering business support through Enterprising Barnsley, including business planning and marketing. “The council regularly monitors the debt position within the market and works to support individual traders where required. “After recent feedback from traders followed by a consultation over rent, we have implemented a 50 per cent rent reduction for traders on the first floor of the market. “Ground floor traders also have the option to move to the first floor if they wish to take advantage of the discount. “The rent reduction will not only help support traders on the upper level, but also help attract new businesses into the market to ensure it continues to be a vibrant shopping destination. “As always, I would like to encourage the people of Barnsley to continue to support our fantastic traders and brilliant market by shopping locally.”

Bus firm to rescue A SCHOOL library bus vandalised during the summer holidays has had the windows replaced for free – thanks to Stagecoach. Pupils and staff from Birkwood Primary, on Darfield Road, Cudworth returned after the break to find that three of the bus windows had been smashed. This left the school without a library, as its former library space was converted into a new classroom to cope with demand for places. Headteacher Julie Allen said: “We were very disappointed when we returned to see that the bus had been damaged. “We couldn’t allow pupils to enter the library bus because

there was glass everywhere and the children had nowhere to read for the first two weeks of term.” The school purchased the bus in 2016 and spent six months renovating the Leyland Olympian with the help of the community and a grant from the North East Area Council in addition to money collected through fundraising. It was officially unveiled in April the following year. Julie added: “We didn’t have the budget to replace the windows and it was such a shame that the bus couldn’t be used. “Space is at a premium at the school and classes use the bus for

group reading exercises as well as swapping their books. “It was a real shame for the children, especially the reception classes who had not even been in the bus.” Hannah Musgreave, who works at the school, told her husband Joel, who works for Stagecoach, and asked if the bus operators could help, as the decommissioned vehicle was a rare model. Joel raised the issue with the engineering department, who then repaired the bus. Stagecoach asked specialist supplier Carlyle Bus and Coach Limited, based in West Bromwich, for the glass and the company supplied it free of charge.

Chin chin to the Garrison as bar gets drinkers’ vote REVELLERS voted The Garrison as their favourite town-centre bar at an awards ceremony. The venue, on Hanson Street, beat off competition from a host of rivals in the Best Bar None scheme, which was held at The Civic, after more than 2,000 members of the public voted for their favourite. Judges said The Garrison demonstrated a ‘strong commitment to improving their standards’ and ‘showed enthusiasm towards delivering their services to the highest possible standards’. However, The White Bear, on Church Street, was crowned the overall winner by judges, who lauded its management and staff members’ work. The best late night

venue was awarded to Che Bar and Coco, whose measures which are in place to ensure public safety both inside and outside of the premises received praise. A new award – best pub from a national company – was claimed by The White Bear – while Pavilion won the best newcomer, Soul Lounge was the most improved and Favela bagged the best dining experience. In another new category, the special recognition award was presented to the Craft Union Pub Company, which operates three accredited venues in the Best Bar None scheme – The Mount, Corner Pin and Shakespeare – all of which scored consistently high with assessors.

Cabinet spokesman Coun Jim Andrews said: “The awards have shown what a welcoming, lively and diverse evening economy we have in the town centre, as well as businesses across the borough which are committed to supporting their workforce to be happy and healthy.” The awards evening also doubled up as the Be Well at Work Awards. Berneslai Homes won the best health and well-being initiative gong and large business awards, Gina McDermott, of XPO Logistics, won the workplace health champion title, Jump Primary School the small business awards and Penistone Grammar School the mediumsized category.

Matt Davies, managing director for Stagecoach, said: “We were delighted to help Birkwood Primary repair the damage to the school library. “As soon as we heard about this, we wanted to do whatever we could to help the school and the kids get their library repaired. “We are delighted with how the repair work has gone and it’s great that the school have used one of our old buses and turned it into a popular library.” Julie said: “It’s now business as usual and we can’t thank Stagecoach enough for what they have done. “The children are really excited to be able to use their library again.”

Citizens’ assembly needed say clean-air campaigners

Ad is a happy hospital visitor A DOCUMENTARY superfan’s dream came true after he travelled from Coventry to Barnsley to meet his TV heroes. Adam McNamara, or Ad for short, has autism, dyspraxia, scoliosis and learning difficulties and gets a lot of enjoyment from watching TV programmes – including Casualty 24/7, the Channel 5 documentary filmed in Barnsley Hospital’s emergency department. The 31-year-old contacted Barnsley Hospital to say he had been watching the show and asked if it was possible for him and his carer to visit the emergency department and meet doctors, nurses and other staff who featured in the programme. The hospital was happy to oblige and last Friday, Ad managed to make his dream come true and travelled to Barnsley. He also met camera crews from Channel 5 as they were filming again in the casualty

department for a third series of the programme. Viewing figures for the last series topped some of those for the best-loved television programmes that run parallel to the show. Patient experience improvement manager Terri Milligan arranged the visit and Ad was given a tour of A&E by lead nurse Hannah Ryan and A&E consultant Dr Rob Jones. Terri said: “It was an absolute pleasure to meet with Ad and his carer Neil and to be able to fulfil his wish of visiting the staff and the area in which Casualty 24/7 is filmed. All the staff involved were amazing and it

was lovely to see how much joy Ad experienced from his visit.” After the visit, a thrilled Ad thanked the hospital and said: “Both me and my carer really enjoyed it. We visited not only the A&E department, but the hospital restaurant, wards and X-Ray as well. “It was a pleasure meeting Terri, Jeanette from learning disabilities, the acute liaison nurse, the communications team, camera crew, physios and even the hospital chief executive. “I really enjoy Casualty 24/7 and am looking forward to seeing the new episodes.”

A CLIMATE emergency declared in the town has come under fire from councillors who have urged Barnsley Council to form a citizens’ assembly in order for residents to help shape a greener borough. At the last full council meeting, the stance was formalised whereby targets to achieve zero carbon status were agreed following a recommendation outlined by cabinet members. The council’s strategy is to reduce pollution levels and bosses are aiming to achieve a zero carbon borough by 2040 – ten years sooner than the government is aiming for nationally – as air pollution has been cited as the fourth biggest threat to public health after cancer, heart disease and obesity. Ruling cabinet members had previously recommended that the council aims to achieve zero carbon status as an organisa-

tion by 2040 and for the wider borough by 2045, albeit with no residents’ input. However, Couns Peter Fielding and Jake Lodge proposed targets of 2030 and 2035 respectively – assisted by a citizens’ assembly where residents help shape the decision-making process – but this was ruled out. Coun Fielding said: “I am bitterly disappointed but not surprised that this council has rejected the amendments we put forward. “Our targets to achieve zero carbon status by 2035 reflected the targets of many other local authorities and were based on the plethora of current scientific evidence as to the increasingly urgent nature of the climate emergency. “We took advice from Extinction Rebellion, who are leading the field on this topic, and our recommendations mirrored the specific

aims of Barnsley Trades Council and indeed the national Labour Party. “The refusal of the ruling party members to even contemplate a citizens’ assembly on climate change was particularly disappointing. “Such assemblies are being created by an increasing number of councils and are widely recognised as a means to engage and inform the local community and as a means of guiding our collective efforts to reduce our carbon footprint. “By taking this stance, Barnsley Council is effectively refusing to engage with or consult with the wider community, choosing instead to impose its own unambitious targets and its own methodology on the community. The council set these targets without any prior consultation or cross-party discussion – an approach which I fear will be doomed to fail.”

A week in WAB history...

‘Disgusting’ sign is taken down again WAB History takes a look through the archives at WAB news from years gone by. This week, we flash back to what hit the headlines in October 2013... October 3 Dogging Sign Taken Down A SIGN put up by a disgusted mother to warn off doggers has been taken down for the second time – after her landlord took exception. Marie Owen, 27, first put up the cardboard protest, which had a picture of a couple copulating in the shape of a traffic sign, after catching two people having sex in a car outside her flat on Wentworth View, Wombwell. However, it was taken down by police, who

deemed it offensive and indecent. Justifying its removal, Wombwell Safer Neighbourhood Team Sgt Phil Jenkins said he thought Marie’s protest was hypocritical. “To say she was standing on an ethical soapbox, it was a pretty disgusting sign,” he said. “If a child saw that, it would not have been right. A more mature person would have reported it to the police.” Defiant, Marie replaced the sign with a similar one, this time higher up the lamp post to make it more difficult for anyone to remove, with the same ‘traffic sign’ drawing and the words: ‘Do not remove this sign. It isn’t hurting anyone. Some people have

no respect. If you do not like my way of discouraging this behaviour... do one!’ However, she said she was forced to take down the sign after the estate agent letting the flats complained, on the basis it made it more difficult for her landlord to let empty flats in the block. October 8 College Announces Plans For New Centre BARNSLEY College has announced plans for a new £10.8million centre offering specialised state of the art facilities to students. The centre is to be built at the college’s Honeywell campus and will offer a high quality learning environment for students on 14-16 curriculum courses and further and higher education courses.

Facilities at the centre will include specialised workshops for brickwork, plastering, wall insulation, roofing, joinery, and painting and decorating. The planning application for the development will be submitted in January 2014 and work is planned to begin in the spring. The college will receive an Enhanced Renewal Grant (ERG) from the Skills Funding Agency (SFA) covering a third of the cost. Andrew Fairest, the college’s vice principal for property development, said: “We’re very pleased that this exciting new development will enable us to provide students with top quality facilities in which to learn.

“It will also create a national ‘hub’ for specialist training in energy efficient construction and engineering.” October 31 Meet The Market’s Oldest Trader! AT 89 years of age, Edwin Bower Price is the oldest market trader in Barnsley! He established Edwin B Price fruit and veg stall in Barnsley Market in 1955, having returned from Australia where he had emigrated a few years earlier with his wife Doreen and daughter Maria. “It’s funny how we got into it,” he said. “When we came back, my wife was charged a crown for a cauliflower which was quite a bit of money then.

“I told her we should look into it, as someone must have been making a bit of money.” Edwin, of Green Croft, Hood Green, visits the stall whenever he can, though it’s now run by his son, Stephen, 60. Edwin has a little stool and lots of people come to talk to him because he has been there so long. “We’ve had the stall for many years and I’m the oldest market trader. A lot of people know me.” Edwin has lived in Hood Green all his life and when he returned from Australia bought the farmyard where his bungalow is now, demolishing the older buildings and building a more modern property.

These boys were born to rock – and you could win tickets to see them INGLORIOUS are five young men with a mutual love and respect of the classics of hard rock music, big guitar riffs and soulful vocals. Their influences stem from iconic rock and roll shrine of rock albums from the 1970s, many years before the band members were born. The same albums that have inspired generations of musicians and performers are noticeably evident when you listen to the Inglorious debut. This is the music they were born to play – inspired by bands in the classic rock genre as diverse as Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Whitesnake, Bad Company, Aerosmith, the Rolling Stones, to name a few. Formed in February 2014, the band is fronted by Nathan James, who made a name for himself having sung

for the multi-platinum selling TransSiberian Orchestra, and Scorpions guitar legend Uli Jon Roth. Nathan was looking for like-minded musicians that desired to make incredible rock music in a very honest fashion.
 Inglorious are currently on tour and will be performing at the Holmfirth Picturedrome on October 18. WAB have teamed up with MP Promotions and we’re giving you the opportunity to win a pair of tickets to watch them live.

Crisis of confidence as Stendel’s side slump

HEAD coach Daniel Stendel said his Barnsley side ‘played like a youth team’ in their 5-1 loss at Preston North End on Saturday. Cameron McGeehan cancelled out Daniel Johnson’s opener two minutes before the break in the Championship clash at Deepdale. But the Reds conceded four second-half goals, to Tom Barkhuizen, Johnson, Ben Pearson and Josh Harrop, in what the boss admitted was the worst performance since he moved to Oakwell last year. Barnsley slipped to second-bottom, a point above Stoke, who won 2-1 at Swansea, and two behind Reading, who lost 1-0 at Bristol City, and Huddersfield, who beat Hull 3-0. Preston managed by former Barnsley player Alex Neil, climbed to third. The latest international break means Barnsley don’t return to action until a week on Saturday, October 19, when Swansea visit Oakwell. Stendel said: “You can see, in 90 minutes, in small things and in big situations, we played like a youth team.

“At half-time, I thought it was not our best first half, but 1-1 was a good result. “I thought ‘maybe we can keep it a little bit longer and we will get our chances’. “But the second half was the worst half I can remember since I came to Barnsley.” Stendel, whose side are winless in ten league games, added: “The players want to run and fight and never give up but, after the last games, we have lost the little bit of confidence that we had. “Every player has enough problems with himself in the game and it’s very difficult when a player makes a mistake and the other players cannot help. “Preston played well and you can see in the table after 11 games that it is a team who have chances to get into the play-offs. “We are playing, at the moment, like a team which is not good enough to play in the Championship. “We are all really down after the game. At the moment, it is really hard. The changing room is really quiet. This is the situation.” Midfielder McGeehan added: “It’s not good

enough across the board. We just let ourselves go in the second half. “The first half was a decent away performance but the second just wasn’t good enough from every player. We will look at ourselves and go again. “Preston are a good team but we are gifting too many goals and we need to stop that as soon as possible. “We have the break now and we can recharge and get ourselves going again, because we need to get better quickly. “We were too sloppy, let them in too many times and made too many mistakes.” There was applause in the 66th minute from home and away supporters for Jeffrey Wroe, the Barnsley fan who died during the home game against Derby on Wednesday. The Reds also put a shirt with his name on it on their bench in the dug-out. Stendel said: “I talked with some supporters before the game that we wanted to do that. “It was a bad moment on Wednesday, we were happy about the goal in the last minute but sad about Jeffrey.”

Cauley clinches a point with last-gasp leveller

HOW ABOUT THAT: Cauley Woodrow equalises against Derby and (inset) takes the fans’ acclaim. Pictures: Keith Turner and Sally Hegarty.

CAULEY WOODROW notched a injury-time equaliser to earn Barnsley a 2-2 draw against Derby County at Oakwell. The Reds looked set for a third consecutive Championship defeat last Wednesday. But Woodrow diverted in Conor Chaplin’s strike to secure a welcome point. Barnsley had gone ahead through Aapo Halme’s header in the 13th minute. However, Derby went 2-1 up before half-time. Chris Martin’s close-range finish levelled the game after 34 minutes. And Tom Huddlestone’s 43rd-minure penalty put them ahead. Tom Lawrence, recalled to the starting line-up after the Welsh winger and Mason Bennett were charged with drink driving following a car crash, won the spotkick which former Tottenham midfielder Huddlestone converted. But Woodrow struck four minutes into time added on to

stop the visitors making it backto-back wins. Woodrow’s late heroics made up for an early miss, the striker somehow mis-kicking when well placed. The Reds got off the mark when Finnish defender Halme finished off Alex Mowatt’s inswinging free-kick. Woodrow had a goalbound header blocked before Derby got on top.

Lawrence drove a shot high and wide and Curtis Davies was off the mark with a diving header. But Martin made no mistake when he grabbed his third goal in three games after some neat build-up play. Lawrence’s trickery lured Danish defender Mads Andersen into the foul for the penalty. Lawrence twice went close to extending Derby’s lead before Woodrow’s equaliser thwarted the Rams. “For the team, for the players and for us and also for our supporters, it was a great moment to score in the last minute. I think we deserved this point,” said Barnsley head coach Daniel Stendel. “Our young players have kept their confidence and they have been playing well and only small moments in the last games have stopped us. “We have shown we can win games in this league but we need to defend our goal better and also keep scoring goals.”

Barnsley Independent, Tuesday, October 8, 2019 –

On the move with our helpful guide Moving home can be a hectic business. In the run up to the big day, it is all too easy to forget something vital. To help you avoid some of the major pitfalls, we offer the following checklist: WITH 4 WEEKS TO GO:

   

 

Arrange to take over gas and electricity at your new address, and make sure that all appliances will be properly fitted. Notify BT and ask them to make the necessary arrangements for a final account at your present address, and for taking over or installing telephone facilities. Arrange for change of address cards to be printed. Get estimates from removal companies, checking that comprehensive insurance cover is available against damage or loss, is there a packing and unpacking service? Confirm the date of your move. Check on your home contents insurance policies to ensure that you are covered for the move, and covered at your new address. Make arrangements for your gas and electricity meters (plus water meters where relevant) to be read and all your appliances to be disconnected on the day of your move.

WITH 2 WEEKS TO GO:



 

Begin to throw out unwanted items from attics, wardrobes. What you really don’t want you may as well dump now, send to charity, or sell through the Classified pages of the Chronicle. It’s a great time for a good sort out! Confirm all arrangements, times etc. for meter readings, disconnections and reconnections, with authorities and with your buyer and seller. Make sure you have a good stock of packing materials, including sturdy boxes and plenty of string and sticky tape.

WITH 1 WEEK TO GO:

   

Cancel and pay up accounts for routine delivery services such as milk, groceries, newspapers and fuel. Re-organise these deliveries for your new address. Defrost refrigerators in preparation for move and, if you are moving a freezer and its contents, turn it up to maximum for a couple of days before your move. Send off change of address cards. Arrange and pay for automatic re-direction of your mail by the Post Office.

WITH 1 DAY TO GO:

   

Cover carpets which are being left behind, so as to minimise damage during furniture removal. Check through previous lists to make sure nothing has been overlooked, then enjoy a worry-free early night! Complete your packing except for those items you are likely to need overnight, and prepare a picnic for moving day. Have a large enough cash ‘float’ available to deal with unexpected expenses, and make sure you have collected documents and valuables together in a safe place.

ON MOVING DAY:

              

Dismantle any light fittings, etc. not included in sale. Turn off electric appliances. Disconnect cooker. Turn off boiler/central heating. Turn off water. Strip beds and pack bedding and night clothes. Pack items for washing/toiletries. Take down curtains. Take up rugs, carpets, floor coverings, as required. Read gas meter. Read electricity meter. Secure all windows. Lock all doors. Leave key as arranged with new owners. On arrival at your new home, unpack slowly and methodically.
