He has bought into the philosophies of a supporter owned Club and has become integral to what we want to achieve here being a key factor in helping to grow the business side as well as putting the Club at the heart of the Community. 

“Barry is without doubt one of the outstanding young coaches in today’s game and has instilled a thoroughly professional approach right across the coaching, playing and back room staff. This new deal is just reward for the outstanding job he has done so far on a very limited budget. It gives both Barry and the Club a stable platform from which to move forward.”

Hunslet have won four of their opening five games of the season, their first back in Championship One following relegation in 2013.
