Fire service’s financial fear FIRE bosses responsible for Barnsley have warned that there is an ‘incredible’ amount of financial uncertainty looming over the service – despite revealing £4m has already been saved this year. Members of the South Yorkshire Fire Authority will meet at Barnsley Town Hall on Monday to discuss its medium-term financial report, which runs from next year to 2023. Wide-ranging cuts have been made to its property portfolio, transport, ICT and operation equipment, according to a report, which has helped shave £3.979m off its 2019/20 capital programme. However, uncertainty surrounding the upcoming general election and Brexit remains a worry for fire chiefs. A report, compiled by director of support services Stuart Booth, said: “Beyond 2020, there remains an incredible amount of financial uncertainty facing the sector and our service. This ‘opaqueness’ is only likely to lift when the government is able to clearly articulate the state of the nation’s public finances post-election and Brexit. “The fire service is not considered a priority or a protected service under this administration and has not been awarded any additional monies like other Home Office functions.

“This is disappointing, especially given the service’s lobbying of ministers and the Home Office and the acceptance that the current use of density and sparsity of population is both perverse and does not strongly correlate to fire risk. “To help sensibly forward plan, we have been working for some time to review all of our financial planning assumptions and to challenge and where appropriate reduce non-emergency response cost base. “This may not be enough – as previously stated the government has clearly signalled its future intentions for the sector which, if proven, may well see a continuation of ’austerity’ without any real terms growth in funding like other public sector services such as the police and NHS. “Uncertainty prevails and questions lie unanswered.” Bosses in South Yorkshire have a £4.4m blackhole but anticipate a two per cent pay inflation for staff and a two per cent council tax precept rise, but ruled out implementing its planned reduction of firefighters manning its emergency vehicles from five to four following widespread protests. Alternative cost-saving measures will be discussed at the meeting and include recruiting new firefighters to move away from reliance on overtime.

We’ll do the same thing again A BITTER row over a rent dispute at Barnsley Market resulted in traders walking out to stage a protest – and shoppers have been warned more could follow unless an agreement is struck. It comes after Barnsley Council slashed charges for those with stalls upstairs by 50 per cent, but left rent unchanged on the ground floor. Traders have called for parity, but accused the council of not listening to their voices. An hour-long protest took place at the market’s Cheapside entrance on Thursday. Ground-floor stallholders closed early to take part in a bid to force the council’s hand. Trader Mark Arnold, of Repair IT, said: “All we’re calling for is parity – some have had 50 per cent reductions and we need help to keep trading. “We don’t want to keep walking out but as our voices aren’t being heard, we feel

Market traders’ warning as row rumbles on it’s the only thing that will get the council’s attention. “We’ve got January and February on the horizon and they’re the traditional times of year where traders really struggle. “There’s a brilliant regeneration going on in the town centre at the minute and we’re at the centre of that, but Barnsley isn’t Barnsley without its market and the traders are central to that.” President of the National Market Traders Federation, Michael Nicholson, warned the impasse could result in long-running stallholders being forced to throw in the towel. “We want to negotiate with the council and have a proper discussion, but so far we’re the ones who have been seeking dialogue and not receiving anything back,” he said. “Fair rents need to be in place for everyone. “High street retailers, those

with big names and many employees, are forcing landlords into reducing their rents because they have to do that to survive. “Barnsley’s traders are independent, often family-run and the heart and soul of the town. They need protecting and they need help but they don’t appear to be getting that.” Coun Tim Cheetham said all traders were included in the consultation process prior to the rent reduction coming in from September 1 and urged shoppers to continue supporting the market. “As a responsible landlord, we have regular discussions with our market traders about improvements that can be made,” he added. “Recent conversations with traders suggested there was a difference in trading position between the ground level and first floor of the market.

“We decided to look into this, opening up further discussions with traders. After listening to feedback, we proposed a 50 per cent reduction in rent for first floor traders. “After taking this to a consultation, the results showed that the majority of traders who responded were happy. “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.”

Barnsley to Encompass domestic violence policy SOUTH Yorkshire’s Chief Constable has said he is ‘entirely confident’ Barnsley schools will begin stepping in to support pupils known to have witnessed domestic violence – a policy now in place across the rest of the county. Operation Encompass relies on open channels of communication between the authorities so schools can be informed following incidents where their pupils are known to have seen violence taking place, an ordeal that has damaging consequences. Schools across the local authority areas of Sheffield, Doncaster and Rotherham are now signed up, however that has yet to take place in Barnsley, but Chief Constable Stephen Watson said he believed that was just down to timing.

He presented details of Operation Encompass to the county’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Dr Alan Billings, at a meeting of his public accountability board, where he holds the force to account. Mr Watson (above) told him: “I don’t think it is because Barnsley has said ‘no’, they are yet to take it up,” adding he was ‘confident’ it would happen.

The development was eased by the fact South Yorkshire Police has existing positive links with all but two of the county’s 278 primary schools. He told the meeting: “Being in a household where you witness the abuse of a loved one falls square into ‘adverse childhood’. “Being able to get into school and notify them about what has happened has a marvellous effect in offsetting some of the unpleasant effects. “Schools can make a real difference to young people’s lives. It is a developing piece of practice. We are continuing through partnerships to try to encourage all schools to interact with the programme. “I think we will get to that.” n Provided by the Local Democracy Reporting Service.

Body cameras on way PATROLLING officers employed by Barnsley Council will wear body cameras in a bid to deter aggressive behaviour. The move will equip traffic wardens, community safety teams and town centre wardens with the recording devices, which will be linked to a control room based in The Glass Works. The council said aggression and violence towards its staff was ‘unacceptable’ and it is hoped that the use of the cameras will reduce the number of incidents. Coun Jenny Platts, cabinet spokesperson for communities, said: “Our staff should not

come to work in fear of being threatened or abused and we hope the implementation of body cameras will help to give them a safer environment to be able to do their job. “The council has a zero-tolerance policy on violence or aggression towards our staff. Those who are subjected to it will receive the necessary support and perpetrators should expect to be prosecuted. “While these cameras are for the safety of our operatives, they will also be able to capture instances of aggressive and antisocial behaviour, hopefully making our town centre a safer place.”

THE family of a girl who survived a horrific dog attack which left her skull exposed have paid tribute to the hospital which saved her life. Sophie Evans, seven, from Wombwell, was attacked by a German Shepherd in January this year when she was with family in Brampton. The attack left the Kings Oak Primary pupil covered in blood, with bite wounds across her face and scalp that were so severe they left her skull visible. Sophie’s mum Lyndsey Evans said she received a call at work telling her Sophie had been attacked and said she was ‘heartbroken’ at seeing the injuries. “To this day, I cannot believe how brave she was when I arrived,” said Lyndsey. “She just held out her hand and said ‘mummy, I’m okay.’” Sophie was rushed by ambulance to Barnsley Hospital.

Upon reviewing her injuries, the consultant immediately arranged for her to be transferred for specialist emergency care at Sheffield Children’s Hospital’s emergency department. Lyndsey, who works as an emergency department receptionist, said she is used to seeing people with bad injuries but said ‘nothing can prepare you for being on the other side as a parent’. “I honestly didn’t know what would happen. Sophie’s brother Jack, who is only nine himself, saw the attack and began to worry that she wouldn’t make it,” she said. When Sophie arrived at Sheffield Children’s Hospital, the team immediately dressed her head, face and eye and scheduled surgery for the following morning. The next day, Sophie spent fourand-a-half hours in surgery. The clinicians cleaned and stitched

Three weeks after she was discharged, Sophie was able to return to school. “All the staff who helped us were absolutely amazing, words will never be enough to explain how forever grateful we will be,” said Lyndsey. “On the worst day of our lives, they made sure we were all looked after and reassured. Sophie’s scars are barely noticeable.” The family are now fundraising to ensure the patients have the best facilities possible and have committed to helping The Children’s Hospital Charity’s £4.5m appeal to build a new emergency department at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

What a load of rubbish... but Megan’s art is fine

RAILS THROUGH BARNSLEY By Alan Whitehouse & Peter Rodgers RRP £16.99 OFFER PRICE £11.99

Few people realise it, but Barnsley was once the centre of a railway universe. In Victorian times, dozens of competing companies put forward schemes to build railways across, through and around the town. Between them they constructed what some still regard as the most dense railway network in the country - more complicated even than London’s commuter system or even the railway networks of our major cities. The reason almost no one knows about it is because many of the lines built never saw a passenger service. They were built for one reason: coal. A maze of semi-unknown branches served every colliery in the district and the network became so overloaded with coal trains that they even had to build a railway bypass around the town to prevent everything grinding to a standstill! Down the years Barnsley’s railway network became something of a backwater, ignored by many enthusiasts and photographers. So the full story of how the railways aided the town’s prosperity has rarely been told. This book is an attempt to put that right by giving a relatively short - but fact-packed - history, looking at each of the railway companies that opened up the town and connecting it with what was going on in the outside world. It includes a collection of high quality images, many of which have not been seen before. As the coal industry rose and fell, so did the railway system which served it, and this book will show exactly how it all happened and why.

A FINE art student is making the most out of litter and helping to clean it up by using it in her art work. Megan Bailey is in the second year of her BA fine art degree at Barnsley College and said she has been making sculptures and other pieces of work out of items that have been fly-tipped across the borough. The 20-year-old wants to try and turn fly-tipping into ‘something positive’ by creating art,

and has used tyres, helmets and more in her work. “I was inspired by fly-tipping as it is a big problem in the area,” said Megan. “I wanted to look at it from a different aspect and try to make it a bit more of a positive rather than a negative. “It makes my work really unique and just adds a bit more to it. “I absolutely love seeing people’s faces when I’m there

rolling a spare tyre down the corridor. People do give me some really strange looks.” Megan has had her work displayed in The Civic in Barnsley and creates both large and small pieces of art with the fly-tipping materials she gets. “People bring me items and I do go out and source items as well,” she said. “I’ve been making dream catchers out of old tyres and things. It’s what I enjoy.”

Council told: Do more to tackle alcohol reliance ALCOHOL dependency is on the rise in Barnsley at a time when treatment services are enduring harsh cuts, a shock new study has revealed. There are now more than 3,500 residents in the town who rely on alcohol, up by about 100 since 2010, according to Public Health England. The rate per 1,000 adults is 17, making Barnsley the second-worst area in Yorkshire, Humberside and Lincolnshire, with Hull the most prevalent with 20 per 1,000. In Barnsley, figures suggest that alcohol-related hospital admissions are 13.8 per cent higher than Yorkshire and Humber and 25.5 per cent higher than England. Across the last five years, hospital admissions in Barnsley have risen by 15.9 per cent, while levels for England overall have reduced by 1.3 per cent. Alcohol addiction treatment experts UKAT say councils have been ‘lacklustre’ in their response to year-on-year rises, which comes at a time when there’s been a 50 per cent closure rate of rehabilitation facilities across the region. The population across Barnsley has increased by more than 7,000 since 2013, yet the drop

off in spend on alcohol treatment equates to almost £2.2m, according to UKAT. A spokesman said: “Unfortunately alcohol is just as harmful a drug as heroin, but a lot of people don’t or don’t want to see it that way. “Councils assume lead responsibility for alcohol service provision back in 2013, giving them full autonomy of how and where they spend their annual public health grant, yet the numbers of people dependent on alcohol and in need of treatment overall is rising instead of falling. “Although it is marginal, it should be the opposite direction. “There is no excuse for this. Clearly councils have their heads buried in the sand about alcohol dependence because the numbers speak for themselves; in seven years, things have only got worse. “Quite simply, greater investment in effective treatment facilities, accessibility and awareness will help lower the number of people in this community suffering with alcohol dependence.” Through the Barnsley Alcohol Alliance, the council has an ‘alcohol plan’ in place, with seven priorities and a number of outcomes it wants to achieve,

including a reduction in the number of people diagnosed with alcohol-related liver disease, hospital admissions, crime and disorder and increased awareness and understanding of alcohol related harm across the borough. Coun Jim Andrews, cabinet spokesperson for public health, said: “The local alcohol health needs assessment identified that one in four residents drink more than the recommended levels and GP records show that one in seven residents are drinking at ‘increasing risk’ levels. “There are also a high number of alcohol-related hospital admissions in Barnsley. “The alcohol plan aims to create a sensible drinking culture across the borough to ensure that everyone who chooses to drink alcohol does so sensibly.” n Barnsley Council’s commissioned alcohol and drugs/ substance misuse service is Recovery Steps, delivered by Humankind. The service has experienced and professional teams who will work with individuals on their journey to recover from alcohol and/ or drugs. They can be contacted for support or referral on 01226 779066, 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.

Call to improve bridge security NETWORK Rail has been urged to tighten up security at a former railway bridge after Barnsley Council officially lodged its concerns over youths throwing bricks onto traffic below. Incidents have happened on Barnsley Road, Cudworth, which has seen youngsters scale the banking of the former railway line where the bridge used to go across the main road at an area known as The Valley. Although it’s been made a priority for the local policing team – whose officers have been increasing their patrols as a result of complaints made by Coun Charlie Wraith – it’s understood a passing car’s roof was damaged having been struck by an object. The latest incident follows a flurry last month, which saw two more

cars and a bus being damaged. Paul Brannan, head of safer communities for the council, wrote a letter to Network Rail – the landowner – asking them to consider repositioning its fencing to prevent access. “Unfortunately in recent weeks we have witnessed problems with a group of young people accessing the land and throwing missiles at traffic below from the gap where the old bridge used to cross,” the letter said. “With our partners in South Yorkshire Police, the council are working to try and identify those involved and stop any further problems and this has included deploying staff to the location on an evening. “Nevertheless, we have not yet been successful in preventing the problem which clearly represents a potential

danger to road users below. “It is with this in mind that I am writing to ask if your organisation would consider providing some additional fencing to block easy access to the end point of the old bridge. “It may be possible to reposition the existing fencing or blocks so that there is more of a buffer between the end of the old bridge and the road below.” Network Rail opted to erect fencing when the bridge was removed in March 2015. But youths have been seen on the playing field side – The Valley – where there’s been issues with antisocial behaviour ‘since the removal’. Coun Wraith said: “It’s got to the point where although the police, to their credit, have acted, last week’s incident shows it hasn’t stopped

and we’re talking about a potentially deadly situation. “It’s purely by chance that the objects have hit vehicles’ roofs instead of their windscreens, which would easily shatter given the weight of a brick, the 30mph speed limit and the fact it’s been thrown from a height. “It’s essential something is done and the only solution I can see is to rethink the fencing to prevent access.” Dawn Sweeting, community safety manager for Network Rail, added: “Safety is Network Rail’s top priority and we are committed to working with Barnsley Council and South Yorkshire Police to help them tackle this issue. “Workers are going to carry out an inspection of the area and see what measures can be taken to help resolve this.”

Barnsley Independent, Tuesday, November 19, 2019 –

Homes plan could drive rooks away CONCERNS will be raised with Barnsley Council over the potential loss of trees to make way for a new housing development in Oxspring which, it is claimed, could cost the historic village its last remaining rookery. Lifelong resident and former councillor John Wade (right) said the village had three colonies of rooks in the past, with two already gone. The existing birds use trees which could be threatened by plans to put 23 new homes on a site off Roughbirchworth Lane, on the fringe of the village, said Mr Wade, who will be writing to the council. A survey submitted as part of the planning application shows 44 individual trees on the site, with some forming an avenue along an access to existing buildings which would also be demolished as part of the development, along with nine groups of trees and shrubs. To allow the development, 29 of the trees and all the shrub groups would have to be removed. The report describes the avenue of trees as: “Generally in good overall condition and collectively provide a good level of amenity throughout the site and the surrounding area.” It states that some sycamores would need maintenance if they were to remain and that two beech trees were: “More significant; however, they are not visually prominent from beyond the site, being surrounded by larger trees of higher amenity value that are to be retained within the planned development.”

5

The report goes on to state: “The removal of the more significant trees from the site can largely be mitigated through a considered and appropriate planting scheme within the new residential development. “The retained trees within the site form a natural boundary between the development and the public cycle trail to the north east. These are the largest and most significant trees at the site and provide a good level of screening value.” Mr Wade said: “Oxspring had three rookeries and this is the last. “It is important to the village and I am worried it will be affected if these trees are removed. “I will be writing to the council because it is important they consider that.” Others in the village were planning to raise similar concerns, he said. Mr Wade is also concerned about the loss of buildings on the site, which pre-date much of the modern elements of the village. n Provided by the Local Democracy Reporting Service.

Fab Civic night in store BEATLEMANIA is taking over as a tribute to the Fab Four heads to The Civic. The Upbeat Beatles will be performing most of The Beatles’ biggest hits – from Hey Jude to Let It Be. The tribute band, who have been performing together for 17 years, go through 13 guitars and five costume changes to capture the essence of the Fab Four. The band hold an uncanny resemblance to the originals, plus a touch of scouse humour.

‘Help retired miners’ STEPHANIE PEACOCK has written to the government asking for an ‘early Christmas present’ for retired miners. The election candidate for Barnsley East has asked for the release of more than £2bn, currently lying dormant in the Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme. During her time as MP for Barnsley East, Ms Peacock has campaigned on the issue of mineworkers’ pensions, and has previously called the Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme (MPS) a ‘gross injustice’. She has now called for the release and redistribution of money in the scheme, which is

currently pegged to be paid to the treasury over time. Ms Peacock said releasing the full amount could boost pensions by 20 per cent. “After spending their lives undertaking backbreaking work to keep our lights on, retired miners deserve better than a government willing to pocket billions from their pension scheme without paying in a single penny of their own,” said Ms Peacock. “With the average scheme pensioner taking home just £84 a week, freeing up dormant funds currently lying in the Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme would provide a huge windfall.”

The show takes the audience through The Beatles’ career from the early Cavern days through Beatlemania, America and Sgt Pepper to Abbey Road, with narrative and multi-media presentation. John Wilson, the band manager, said: “Our main objective is to entertain.” The Upbeat Beatles perform on December 6 from 7.30pm. Tickets are available from the box office on 327000 or on The Civic website.

Parents told to act over kids’ obesity A PROBE into children’s bulging waistlines has revealed one in five reception-age pupils are now classed as obese in Barnsley – and the figure grows to almost one in three by the time they leave primary school. The study, which focuses on the South Area Council’s wards including Rockingham, Hoyland Milton, Wombwell and Darfield, says 20.3 per cent of its four and five-yearolds are obese, higher than Barnsley’s overall rate of 18 per cent. However, rates for ten and 11-year-olds rockets to 32.4 per cent in the South and 32.1 per cent across the borough – which the report says is an ‘all-time high’ – but remains slightly lower than 34.3 per cent national average. Compiled by public health bosses in the town, it reveals Barnsley as a whole is the fourthworst area in Yorkshire and the Humber for physical activity and for the proportion of residents who eat five portions of fruit and vegetables per day. It said: “Severe obesity in ten to 11-year-olds has now reached an alltime high. “Overweight children are more likely to be obese as adults, increasing their risk of heart disease and some cancers. “More young people than ever are developing type two diabetes. Excess sugar can also lead to painful tooth decay, bullying and low self-esteem in childhood.”

The Rockingham ward is the worst-hit area according to the study, with a quarter of its four to five-year-olds obese, while Hoyland has 24.7 per cent, Wombwell has 17.7 per cent and Darfield fares better with a rate of 14.2 per cent. However, the figures for ten to 11-year-olds, which is the age when a child leaves primary school, grow rapidly in each ward and although Hoyland has the highest rate of 34.5 per cent, Darfield’s children’s figures more than doubled to 30.4 per cent in that five-year period from reception to joining high school. Dr Alison Tedstone, chief nutritionist for Public Health England, said: “Children are consuming too much sugar, but parents can take action now to prevent this building up over the years. “With a third of children leaving primary school overweight, tackling obesity requires wider action and is not just limited to individual efforts from parents. “We are working with the food industry to remove 20 per cent of sugar from the products contributing the most to children’s sugar intakes by next year. “I encourage all Barnsley parents and carers to take a look at some of the easy ways they can help their children consume less sugar and teach them how to make healthier choices that stay with them for life.” The South area also has the highest prevalence of diabetes in

Barnsley, with 70 per cent having high blood pressure and excess cholesterol. A total of 4,560 South residents are at risk of a heart attack or stroke who are not aware they have high blood pressure and more than 100 people who are diagnosed but who are not getting the right treatment to minimise the risk. Excess weight was identified as one of the public health bosses’ strategic priorities between 2018 and 2021 and Barnsley Council’s ‘food plan’ is a ‘response to the increasing levels of obesity in the borough’. Coun Jim Andrews, cabinet spokesperson for public health, said: “The proportion of Barnsley children who carry excess weight in reception is lower than the England rate, however the rate for ten to 11-year-olds is slightly worse than the rate, but not significantly. “Compared to the other South Yorkshire authorities, Barnsley has the highest rate of four to five-year-old children who are a healthy weight. “Barnsley Council’s food plan is about changing the food environment and culture within the town as well as improving access to quality food. “Our approach focuses on developments to the policies and structures which we live, work, shop, eat and learn within, focusing on the social, cultural and environmental conditions around us.”

Council secure cash to help bring empty houses back into system

CASH secured by Barnsley Council from developers behind new housing estates across the borough will be injected into buying up emptying properties. The project, approved by ruling cabinet members last Wednesday, will be run by Barnsley Council and Berneslai Homes’ investment and regeneration team, alongside Barnsley Community Build. Section 106 money, which is set aside by developers as part of their planning permission, totalling £450,000 will be ploughed into the

scheme, which has identified six derelict homes. It will be added to by two other empty homes funding streams which collectively give a further £150,000, taking the overall total available to £600,000. Since April 2018, more than 300 properties have been brought back into use by the council, according to Coun Tim Cheetham. He added: “This programme is a great opportunity to work with partners to continue reducing the number of long-term empty properties.”

A week in WAB history...

DOWN IT COMES: Barnsley’s Central Offices building.

New name adds fresh feel to town’s arcade 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 November 2015... November 2 New name for Barnsley shopping street BARNSLEY’S shopping arcade has been given a new name in a bid to attract new shoppers. The Arcade in Barnsley town centre has changed its name to the Victorian Arcade. The rebrand is part of marketing campaign launched by the 36 independent shops that trade there. Roger Foulstone, whose grandfather Tom set up Tom Foulstone’s menswear shop in 1929, said: “This

is the first time since I have been here that something looks like it is actually going to happen. “Up until now it has been the forgotten street in Barnsley, which is a real shame as it has such character.” November 6 Demolition plan approved for landmark pub A HISTORIC pub is to be demolished after planners approved a proposal to use the site for housing. Anthony Youel has been given permission to knock down The Monkey, at Hollin Moor Lane. Mr Youel is an artist who has used the pub as a basis for his work in recent times, using the car parks to display art installations and sculptures. Planners were told the

pub was no longer viable as a business. November 6 Barnsley’s photographic heritage celebrated HISTORIC photos of Barnsley will now be available for print thanks to the local archives department. Barnsley Archives has launched a print on demand service for the 15,000 images it has, showing Barnsley in years gone by. The collection includes everything from family holidays to how villages have changed. November 13 Central offices to go after 40 years A BUILDING that’s been a landmark in town for 40 years will be demolished on Monday. Central Offices will be bulldozed in a special

ceremony on Monday at 1pm and its demise will be heralded by a fireworks display. It’s been a poignant week for staff who used to work there as they’ve had chance this week for a last look around the building.

Schmidt has Rovers in sights after first Reds goal BARNSLEY’S Austrian star Patrick Schmidt is aiming to kick on after scoring his first goal for the Reds. It came during the 4-2 home defeat by Stoke City which left the Oakwell side bottom of the Championship. With the current international break providing a chance to regroup – although Schmidt has been away with Austria under 21s – Barnsley head to 18th-placed Blackburn Rovers on Saturday seeking a first win since the 1-0 opening-day home victory against Fuham. The Reds have gone 15 league games without a win, and Schmidt has made substitute appearances in six if them since his August move from Admira Wacker. Against Stoke, the 21-yearold scored soon after coming on in the 82nd minute, collecting Alex Mowatt’s long ball over the top of the visitors’ defence and sliding the ball past goalkeeper Jack Butland. “My family was here for the first time, so I think they’d be very happy that I scored,” said Schmidt, who has impressed while playing for the under 23s. “It was a very good feeling to get my first goal in Barnsley and now I hope there are many more to come. “I want to play more, score more and get some wins. “I feel happy in England, I like Barnsley and the town. “All we need is to win games and then I would feel even better.” Schmidt says unity is needed to pull the side through the club’s longest winless sequence since 1959.

He added: “In our situation we have to stay together. “I think it’s important to be with the team now, and get every training session together. “We all feel disappointed because we work hard in training every day but we don’t get the rewards. “But I’m very positive, and so is the team. “In the last few weeks we’ve shown some good performances but didn’t get the points. “I want to help the team out on the pitch in the next weeks.” Blackburn will be playing Yokshire opposition for the third match running. After coming from behind to beat Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 at Ewood Park, they lost by the same scoreline against Leeds United at Elland Road. Patrick Bamford gave the hosts a deserved lead when he slotted home from the penalty spot after Tosin Adarabioyo fouled Luke Ayling in the area and then played in Jack Harrison to make it 2-0 with a good finish. Derrick Williams crashed in a header from Stewart Downing’s corner to give Rovers a lifeline before the break. But Leeds dominated the second half, with Tyler Roberts and Harrison both going close to a third. Blackburn manager Tony Mowbray said: “Leeds didn’t have hundreds of shots and when we got back to 2-1 there was a nervousness about them. “We wanted to prey on that nervousness but it never materialised.”

England so eager to stay in Neville’s plans BARNSLEY’S Bethany England hopes she can become part of Phil Neville’s long-term England plans after scoring her second goal at full international level. The 25-year-old Chelsea player from Kingstone started the friendly against the Czech Republic in Ceske Budejovice last Tuesday and bagged an equaliser two minutes after the hosts had gone ahead. England went on to win 3-2, having been beaten 2-1 by Germany at Wembley three days before. “I was buzzing with the goal,” said England. “It was great to have that immediate reaction to equalise a couple of minutes after they scored. “But I could’ve scored a couple if I’d got on the end of a few more crosses.

“It was a challenging game for me, but overall I think I played alright.” The striker, earning her fifth cap, led the line in a match played in tough conditions as snow fell on a wet and slippery pitch. Arsenal pair Beth Mead and Leah Williamson got the other England goals. “It was minus two degrees and snowing, and they’re quite a physical team,” added England. “It was a really difficult game to play, but the most important thing was getting through it with a win, and ending our year in the right way. “Hopefully I can keep in good form and make sure (England head coach) Phil Neville trusts me and picks me.

“I’m still quite new to the team, so it’s about people trusting me more and learning how to play with the rest of the players. “But I’m pleased with getting two goals in five games, it’s not bad.” England has impressed with Chelsea Ladies, of the Women’s Super League, after spells with Doncaster Belles and Liverpool. She made her first England appearance in August and scored her first full international goal against Brazil last month. England was on the bench for the game against Germany, which drew a record attendance of 77,768 for the Lionesses. “It was a monumental day for women’s football,” she added.
