Barnsley's potential new manager.


Recommended Posts

Sky Sports understands managerless Barnsley are interested in holding talks with the club's former defender Darren Moore.

Barnsley are bottom of the Championship table and in the process of looking for a new manager after parting company with Keith Hill late last month.

The Tykes have already encountered frustration in their search after former Doncaster Rovers boss Sean O'Driscoll and Inverness Caledonian Thistle manager Terry Butcher both turned down the vacancy.

It is now understood that Moore, who is currently a youth-team coach at West Bromwich Albion, is on Barnsley's list of possible options.

Moore has performed a solid job with West Brom and made over 70 appearances during a two-year playing stint at Oakwell between 2008 and 2010.

David Flitcroft is in caretaker charge of Barnsley and will continue at the helm for Saturday's Yorkshire derby at home to Leeds United.

To be fair, Barnsley aren't exactly cut adrift. A four point gap is not insurmountable at this stage. There are 20 games to go after all.

It would be a steep learning curve for the big man no doubt. But you have to think that if he is under consideration, being a rookie in managerial terms, that the Barnsley board are looking for a long-term appointment and will give him time to make his mark irrespective of what might happen in the next five months.

Good luck to him.
