George Smith and George Williams leave Oakwell.
Barnsley Football Club can today confirm that George Smith and George Williams have departed Oakwell after the Club decided against offering them new contracts.
Both players’ current deals are due to expire at the end of June and new contracts were initially offered to both players at the end of the 2015/16 Season. However after careful consideration and further discussions between the board and coaching staff, the Club has now decided to withdraw the contract offers to allow both players the opportunity to progress their careers and play regular first team football next Season.
19-year-old George Smith progressed through the Barnsley FC Academy and went on to make 44 appearances for the Reds.
23-year-old George Williams signed from non-league Worcester City in December 2014 and went on to make 27 appearances for the Reds, scoring one goal.
We would like to thank both players for their hard work and commitment throughout their time at the Club and wish them the very best of luck in their future careers.
