Barnsley Football Club can announce that Cauley Woodrow has departed the Club after four years at Oakwell for an undisclosed fee.

Making 157 appearances for the Reds, Cauley joined in August 2018 and made an instant impact on Grove Street. The Club were promoted automatically from Sky Bet League One and the striker netted 19 goals, despite being injured for the opening three months of the season.

Hitting double-digits for the next two years, the skipper helped the Reds stay in the Championship in 2020.

The following season, his 15 goals helped fire the Reds to 5th place in Sky Bet Championship, netting in the second leg of the play-off semi-final against Swansea City.

Cauley had this message for the fans:

“There has been ups and downs, but this football club, fan base, players and staff will be in my heart forever. I can’t thank everyone enough for their effort and support over the years and I have loved every minute of playing for Barnsley.

"Promotion, surviving on the last day, Championship Play-Offs and the hard season of relegation that we had last year, I feel like I’ve experienced it all with you. This football club belongs in the Championship and I am sure that time will come again soon.

“For me, it’s time to move on but to both represent and captain this football club was an honour. Thank you to everyone and I will see you all again soon."

CEO of Barnsley Football Club, Khaled El-Ahmad added: “We would like to thank Cauley for his efforts during his time at Oakwell.

“He will be fondly remembered by many and deservedly so.

“He was a consummate professional and was an excellent ambassador for the Club. We would all like to wish Cauley well for his future endeavours.”
