Stoke winger Shea apologises to Barnsley fans

Stoke City winger Brek Shea has apologised to Barnsley fans over an ugly gesture last week.

The incident happened when Shea, who is currently on loan at Barnsley, was restraining team-mate Stephen Dawson as he tried to reach one of his own fans after the 5-0 drubbing at Huddersfield.

He said in a statement: "I would like to unreservedly apologise for what happened at the end of the Huddersfield match last week.

"Although my actions were aimed at one person who was abusing a team-mate, I realise I should not have reacted in that way in the heat of the moment.

"I regret those actions and the offence that it has caused.

"I did not intend to offend the Barnsley fans who have shown tremendous support for the team.

"The best way I can show this and repay you, the fans, is with my performances on the pitch."
