Bree Wins LFE Apprentice of the Year!

18 April 2016

Barnsley's James Bree scooped the LFE Apprentice of the Year for Sky Bet League One at last night's Football League Awards.

The glittering ceremony awarded the best and unsung heroes of the Football League, with the Reds youngster scooping an award.

Speaking at last night's ceremony in Manchester, Bree said "It's a massive season for me; trying to nail down a first-team spot. On a more personal note it's a great achievement but the team are doing really well. We've won the JPT at Wembley and have a promotion push now. Hopefully I can be in as involved in that as I can and get the team to Wembley again."

The 18-year-old is closing in on 40 first-team appearances and - whilst completing the second year of his Academy Scholarship this season - has relished his ambassadorial role within the community.

All at the Club would like to congratulate James on his award!
