CAULEY WOODROW EXTENDS OAKWELL STAY

16 October 2020

Cauley Woodrow has put pen to paper on a new deal that sees the striker remain at Oakwell until 2023.

The former England U21 international first joined the Reds from Fulham on loan in August 2018 and has since made 84 appearances, scoring 36 goals. In his first campaign at the Club, the forward netted 19 times and played a significant role in securing promotion from Sky Bet League One in 2019.

Last season, Woodrow returned to the Championship netting 15 times, notably scoring twice in a 3-0 win away at Craven Cottage in February. 

Speaking to iFollow Barnsley immediately after penning his new deal, Cauley told us he was happy to put speculation regarding his future to rest.

“I know there’s been a lot of speculation recently about my future, but as soon as I heard that Barnsley were offering me a new contract it was something I was keen on doing.

“Last season we managed to stay in the Championship, which was a massive achievement for us, but now we all want to kick on and do well this season. I’m happy to secure my future here and I look forward to the years ahead.”

Chief Executive Officer, Dane Murphy added: “A number of Clubs have shown significant interest in Cauley over this transfer window and, having fended off the attention, we’re delighted that he has signed a new contract.  

“I went on record earlier this summer stating that the Club wanted to retain the core of this squad for the current season. The Club has done its best to achieve that and now I look forward to seeing Cauley getting back to doing what he does best, scoring goals.”
