Kennedy Signs for Barnsley

21 September 2012

Former Leicester City defender, Tom Kennedy, has signed a non contract deal at Barnsley Football Club until 2nd January 2013.

Kennedy started his career at the club he supported as a boy - Bury. In the summer of 2010 he signed for Leicester City.

With over 350 career appearances to date the 27 year old defender has plenty of experience.

Tom Kennedy talked exclusively to Barnsley Player on moving to Barnsley and getting back to playing football.

"It's been a strange few years so I'm happy to be at Barnsley and enjoying my football.

"It's been a stop-start few years. I've been on loan to Peterborough a couple of times and only played a little bit for Leicester so this is a chance for me to try and establish myself and do well for Barnsley Football Club. 

"The gaffer gave me the opportunity to train here and I have had other offers but this one was a very attractive proposition and I want to play football, do the best that I can, see what happens until January and hopefully I can earn a longer deal."

When asked about the Barnsley win away to Peterborough last season, which he played in, Kennedy said, "I remember a lot of good goals, Barnsley started strong and scored some world class goals so the quality is here.

"It's been a good start to the season. I thought we were fantastic against Blackpool and on another day we could have won the game. I was very impressed.

"I'm very comfortable on the ball, I can see a pass and play at a high tempo. It's all about energy and enthusiasm for me."
