He Moves (out of Oakwell) Like Daggers

Barnsley have released a second player in the space of 24 hours after Chris Dagnall followed Scott Wiseman out of the club today.

Whilst Wiseman has joined League One side Preston, 27 year old Dagnall will be now be searching for a new club after agreeing to cancel his Barnsley contract by mutual consent.

Dagnall became a fans favourite for his effort and battling skills upfront but the striker was hardly prolific, scoring 11 times in 61 appearances, with eight of those strikes coming in a purple patch of 13 matches, playing a key role in helping The Reds pull off the great escape and reach the FA Cup Quarter-Finals last season.

Dagnall was signed from Scunthorpe by Keith Hill in January 2012 and had loan spells with both Bradford and Coventry whilst a Barnsley player.

Meanwhile Reds boss Danny Wilson, who sanctioned both of those departures and has managed to bring in Ryan McLaughlin on loan from Liverpool, has stated he is far from finished in his bid to strengthen the team and try to haul them off the bottom of the Championship.

He said:

“We’ve had a very positive response from Mr Cryne, who has put a lot of money into this club and it’s down to his generosity where it is today. We’ve got to be truly thankful that he wants to help.”

“He fully understands the dilemma we’re in and he knows how important it is to try to stay in this division.”
