Stones turned out at Oakwell for the first time since leaving the Tykes to join Everton in January 2013 and played the first half before being replaced by Callum Chambers for the second 45 minutes.
Garbutt, meanwhile, assisted in the only goal, his fierce free kick being parried into the path of Ben Gibson and the Middlesbrough man converted the rebound.
This was England's last warm-up game before their U21 European Championship finals campaign kicks off against Portugal next week.

Some German team bought him and IÂve never heard of him since. He now plays in Greece.

ThatÂs right Â– didnÂt a young Royston Drenthe announce himself on this stage?
The club really needs to tie Garbutt down... worst case, sell him on at the end of next season and recoup the wages incurred, but the lad has to accept his order in the queue.

When I saw Drenthe, I was sure he was going to be the next big thing around Â– he was so dangerous and skillful, and I hoped Everton would sign him. Of course, we did... but his attitude destroyed his career by then.
This tournament is a fantastic means to gauge talent though, irrespective of some real flops. Isco and Morata were brilliant last time out, and their ability was obvious. Insigne struck me as a really talented and lively player, and Thiago, Wijnaldum and Martinez all really impressed.
Of those mentioned and those I can remember, only Martinez and Wijnaldum are not at really big clubs. I think both will be, and I think these are the calibre of young players we need to progress the club. Personally I see Martinez going to a Champions League team, but IÂd like to see us go after Wijnaldum.
In my opinion, our future development plan should be built around getting top cheaper talent from Holland and Germany. I think the players in general are undervalued, and I think that the Europeanisation of English football has made the transition much easier for foreign players.
Sidney Sam will be available for next to nothing, and is a cut above our other attacking midfielders except for Mirallas in my opinion. Wijnaldum could grow into a 㿅-30M player, and Firmino is a fantastic creative player (albeit probably on the move to a Champions League club). We need to stay away from the high domestic fees, and the ex-Wigan ÂstarsÂ, and be a little more clever.

The Garbutt fiasco is as unbelievable as it is amateurish. Posters were queueing up on here to claim that Garbutt wasnÂt the finished article and that heÂd be at best, third choice full back. I wager that in a couple of years time heÂll be vying for the England left back position and worth serious money. He may not be as good as Baines right now but IÂd prefer him to Oviedo personally and he should have had more game time, possibly wide left, something IÂve been saying for ages, to fill the gap left by Pienaar.

Anyone know what's going on with Henen? I see he has gone back to Greece earlier this week.

Well maybe to you, but it is certainly a... erm... subjective area.
For instance I happen to believe the most desirable attribute any member of the opposite sex can possess, is not looks or personality but rather the whiff of... availability. Is there a chance?
I never got worked up about Sharon Stone or Claudia thingy coz I knew there was 100% no chance IÂd ever even get to wave at them.
But what about that slightly skittish and damaged looking 40-year-old one who works in Greggs Â– the one wearing the far too tight jeans, loads of mascara and using a lot of clumsy innuendo?
(All that Âforbidden fruitÂ stuff is bollocks Â– if you canÂt have something, you canÂt have it, end of story.)
As I suggest, all to do with how you (fnaar!) look at it.

Left out of his analogy is stripper-the-first, in her prime, simply disappeared from his strip club due the landmark Exotic Dancer Bosman ruling; remember her, Wayina Cooney? SheÂs now plying her trade just up the road for much more money, doing the exact same thing.
Mind, contrary to old SteveÂs opinion based on a life-long experience at hanging out in strip-clubs (sad that), stripper-the-second wasnÂt asking for top wages. She knew well she hadnÂt earned them yet. Just wanted the occasional bookings in the VIP section to prove her worth.
With that, she knew well, due to seeing them in practice and knowing they were working through injuries, that the two favorites in front of her had real and recent difficulty working the pole.
SheÂd stay. Working at the club for several years, been treated well generally (as well as flesh to be pedaled could expect). Other clubs have interest in her, however.
Like any working person, the choice is between the Steve KingÂs of the world or another like him who will pay more to do the same thing. WhatÂs a person to do? Either way, a piece of meat with a short shelf-life. Get the money. ThatÂs it, get the money.
For consideration, she has a feeling that the injuries to the two favorites favored before her will result in more time on the pole for her. If only the club would boost her wages up to whatever other clubs are offering; more time in the VIP section. She can't cut it, she goes, right?
It's the way of thing in the flesh-pedaling business. She understands that. Who can get mad at her for trying to make the most of it while she can?
