Heckingbottom, who had been in charge at Oakwell since Lee Johnson’s departure to Bristol City in February 2016, will begin his tenure with a meeting against Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Saturday
Heckingbottom coached Ghana right back Andy Yiadom during his time at Barnsley FC.
