ADAM PHILLIPS ON PRE-SEASON

18 July 2023

Ahead of our trip to Hull City tonight, Adam Phillips provided an update on pre-season preparations for iFollow Barnsley.

"I'm looking forward to this, my second season. It's going to be a good one. We have to keep building upon last season."

One of the stars of the 22/23 campaign, Adam Phillips joined the Reds in September of last year and his goals, assists and general performances in the midfield battleground proved key in the club's run to the play-off final. 

Whilst the disappointment of that showpiece event remains evident for the 25-year-old, the goal is to use that feeling as fuel this time around, hoping to help the club go a step further.

"It was obviously disappointing how it ended," Phillips told us. 

"But there were a lot of positives we could take from last season as well. And those are the ones we'll be taking into this new season. 

"We've got a new manager, there's players coming in and we have to learn from last year and hopefully push on and go one better."

The Reds take on Sky Bet Championship opposition tonight, away at Hull City. It's another opportunity for the players to get vital minutes into the legs, and against a step up in terms of the calibre of opponent, after previous fixtures at both Worksop Town and AFC Fylde.

"It's been good to get back out there, that's all you want to do as players. You don't want to keep running and running in pre-season, as it is, you want to play matches. So to get some games in, get the fitness up, and implement the things the gaffer wants to take into the new season."
