Harry Crawford has signed a three-year deal with the Bees

Barnet Football Club have completed the signing of Harry Crawford from Dartford Football Club.

Crawford, 21, has put pen to paper on a three-year deal just six months after joining Dartford following his release from Southend United.

The striker has netted 12 times for the Darts this season, who currently sit seventh in the Conference Premier, to help fire them into the promotion chase.  

Prior to joining the club he spent two-years at Roots Hall scoring 3 goals in 25 appearances for the Blues. 

Director of Football Paul Fairclough was full of praise for the youngster who also spent one-month on loan with Dover Athletic at the beginning of the 2010/11 season. 

“Harry Crawford is a young player who I have monitored closely this season because he is a talented forward who already has experience in the Football League. 

“It would have been irresponsible of Barnet Football Club to not take notice of a player who lives locally and has the goal scoring record in the Conference Premier that he has.”

Fairclough continued by expressing his belief that the signing represents great value for a player who has been setting the Conference Premier alight. 

“A player of this quality in the Conference would command a lot of money but we have captured Harry for free.

“His potential is huge and under the guidance of Edgar Davids and his management team I believe they can make him a complete player during his time here.

“He has agreed a three-year contract with us and during that time we expect him to work extremely hard to make a name for himself at the club and in the Football League.”
