As expected, winger Jim O’Brien has committed his future to the club by signing a new two-year contract. What was less expected, was the club accidentally revealing what the 2012-2013 home shirt will look like, 16 days before it’s scheduled launch on the 6th July.
The club posted a photo of O’Brien holding the new shirt to accompany their article announcing the 24-year-old Scotsman signing his new deal-, which can be viewed by clicking here.
Meanwhile back to the main story and O’Brien who has made 66 appearances for the club since signing from Motherwell in 2010 is all set to join the “100 club” after agreeing to remain at Oakwell for another two years.
