Barnsley manager David Flitcroft says the “culture of change” he has brought in at Oakwell will continue.

“I started here untried really and I was desperate to make it work - and still am desperate to make it work,” said the Reds boss.

“There has been a culture change and it will continue. I’m a massive believer in organisation and setting a culture.

“I don’t believe in just being the team manager.

“You have to embrace everything and there is the wind of change here.

“If something goes wrong then I’ll take the blame but things here needed changing.”

Flitcroft said he firmly believes that he can take the club forward.

“We can create something here and I most certainly want to involve the fans as well,” he said.

“I think the fans have been neglected here and we have lots of initiatives. We are going to be trying something different.

“I’ve seen the word ‘project’ used elsewhere; well, I’m using it here because I am excited by Project Barnsley. It involves changes, and the chance to implement them was key to me making the decision to stay sign the contract.

Flitcroft, along with assistant Micky Mellon and coach Martin Scott, have one-year rolling contracts.
