Barnsley Winger Mottley-Henry Loaned In

We are delighted to announce the signing of Barnsley winger Dylan Mottley-Henry on loan until the end of the season.



The 21-year-old trained with Town this morning and will be available for this weekend’s trip to Dover, subject to the relevant FA and National League approval.

Born in Leeds, Dylan began his footballing career at Bradford City, where he would go on to make his professional debut, before being offered his first pro contract under Phil Parkinson.

The winger spent time on loan at Altrincham and Bradford Park Avenue while with The Bantams, before joining current club Barnsley at the beginning of the 2016/17 season.

Described as quick and tricky by his current employers, Mottley-Henry has experienced League Two and National League football while contracted to The Tykes, with loan spells at Tranmere Rovers and Chesterfield.

“He’s an exciting player full of pace and power, Barnsley think a lot of him so we are really pleased to get him.” Commented Town Assistant Manager Paul Thirlwell.

“He’s been out on loan to Tranmere already and helped them go up last season so hopefully he is going to come in and make a really positive contribution.

“We are upbeat and positive about the position we are in but to add that extra dimension to what is already a very strong squad is exciting for everyone.

“I think he’ll fit in well to the way we want to play, his difference is his out and out pace and power and hopefully he’s got that eye for a goal as well, adding that into the mix makes us stronger and improves that competition for places.”

Mottley-Henry will wear the number 22 shirt at Town and was part of the 2017/18 Tranmere side that gained promotion to The National League, making 14 appearances for Rovers.

The League Two side came back in for Mottley Henry at the beginning of the 2018/19 season, securing the winger on loan until January, though that spell was cut short in December with a hamstring injury.
