Laura has a ball being Barnsley mascot

Young Barnsley fan Laura Jacobs came from the other side of the world to get to see her favourite team up close and personal.

Her Laura, aged nine, lives in Canada with her family, who are originally from the town.

They all came back to Barnsley for the Christmas and New Year period – and the nine-year-old enjoyed an extra special double treat.

She was a Reds mascot for not one game but two – the local derbies against Leeds United at Oakwell on New Year’s Eve, and the encounter with Doncaster at the Keepmoat Stadium on Monday.
