DURING the last close season, Brian Howard through his representatives made it clear that after a successful season personally, he felt it was the right time in his career to move on to a new challenge.

Of course, the Club was keen to retain the services of its captain who has been a fans' favourite since his arrival on a free transfer from Swindon. The club has been prepared at all times to offer new contract terms to Brian to keep him with the Reds but his representatives have declined that opportunity.

On Monday September 22, 2008, the Board of Barnsley FC met with Brian Howard and his representatives.Patrick Cryne and manager Simon Davey were also in attendance. Brian confirmed directly to the parties present that he wished to leave the Club and did not wish to discuss a new contract with the Reds.

As a consequence the Board resolved that, in the interests of all parties, Brian Howard would be allowed to leave the Club at the earliest opportunity, subject to Barnsley FC receiving compensation.

Further statements will be made as appropriate.
