Barnsley's Bree Up For Apprentice of the Year Award

16 March 2016

Barnsley youngster James Bree has been shortlisted for the Football League LFE Apprentice of the Year Award for Sky Bet League One.

The 18-year-old is already closing in on 40 appearances for the Reds' first-team and has relished his role as an ambassador for the Club and Town, all whilst still completing his Academy scholarship.

Drew Barrand, Marketing Director of The Football League, said: “The Football League Awards 2016 provides a platform for us to showcase the very best of what The Football League is all about. 

“Once again, the standard of entries has gone up so those clubs and individuals included on the shortlists deserve real praise for their achievements. We wish all those nominated the best of luck and look forward to announcing the winners in April at what will be the first ever Football League Awards evening to be held in Manchester.” 

James will be up against Blackpool's Bright Osayi-Samuel and Swindon Town's Thomas Smith for the award.
