Barnsley College sponsor reds star Marc Roberts

We are proud to become the shirt sponsor of Barnsley FC Footballer Marc Roberts.

The 26-year-old defender, who studied Sport at the college, made his fiftieth appearance against Wolves FC and scored his first Championship goal against Rotherham United FC at the start of the season.

Marc said: “I am happy and pleased to have Barnsley College as my shirt sponsor as my time at college was important, it was where I started to really develop as a footballer. I am really impressed by the world class sports facilities at the Honeywell Campus and I would fully recommend the college to anyone.”

Mark Ryan, Sport Programme Manager at the college, added: “Marc was an excellent student who worked extremely hard as an academic and a footballer. His progression through college and university displayed his desire to achieve academic excellence, coupled with his motivation to play football professionally.

“As a college we like to follow the journey of our Alumni. We are really proud to sponsor a former student who is an inspiration to young people. Marc has continued to stay in touch with us at the college and regularly visits the department. It’s absolutely fantastic when you see ex-students achieve and progress in their chosen vocation.”
