A Dearne Valley College student had his dreams come true when business leaders arranged for him to have a tour of his beloved football team’s home ground.

David Sweetman, 16, is a life-long Barnsley FC fan and he was given a VIP tour of their Oakwell stadium.

The trip was arranged after David met the club’s chief executive Ben Mansford at a business lunch hosted by Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber of Commerce at the college recently.

The thrilled youngster said: “I got to meet Peter Ramage. He pulled out one of his shirts that he has worn and signed it. It was amazing.”
