The 22 year old forward Kane Hemmings is one of the latest additions of Barnsley as the third-tier club managed to sign the young player on a free transfer. Hemmings made a name for himself as he stood out during his time playing at the Scottish club Cowdenbeath where he managed to score 18 goals in 31 league appearances.
The contributions he made to his club did not go unnoticed as he was named as the Professional Football’s Association Scotland Championship player of the Year during the 2013-14 season. On a number of occasions Cowdenbeath were at the verge of being relegated but important goals from Ken Hemmings helped his club avoid the bottom drop zones.
Daren Fulford has worked alongside Ken Hemmings as Daren was one of the personal trainers of Hemmings and Fulford expressed his satisfaction on seeing the young defender making a move to a new club.
“I am delighted for Kane and it’s great to see him back in England, not least because I will get to see more of his games now! He’s been in Scotland since he was 16 and I think he has shown what he can do there’’
“He scored more than 20 goals for Cowdenbeath last season and was named Scottish Championship player of the year, so he has proven what a good player he is. Coming to England offers him a fresh challenge and something else to prove now. Barnsley is a great club for him to join. Let’s face it, they were in the Premiership a few years ago’’ Fulford told the media.
The head coach of Barnsley FC, Danny Wilson is expecting to see Ken Hemmings continue his series of impressive performances but this time in his new club. Barnsley FC suffered relegation as they finished the previous season at the 23rd spot but the arrival of Hemmings to the team can boost their chances of returning to the Championship League.
