Mark Crossley: Heading to hometown club

Crossley, a Wales international goalkeeper, joins manager Danny Wilson's backroom staff as the Tykes attempt to drag themselves out of the Championship drop-zone.

The Barnsley-born 44-year-old was handed his debut by Forest's legendary former manager Brian Clough and made over 300 appearances for the City Ground side.

He picked up eight caps for Wales during a playing career which also featured spells at Middlesbrough, Fulham, Sheffield Wednesday and Oldham.

Crossley began coaching at Chesterfield, where he had a stint as caretaker manager, and was also given a role with Sheffield Wednesday's academy.

Barnsley moved within three points of safety after Tuesday's 3-1 win at Reading and will face drop rivals Yeovil on Saturday.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
