Exciting attacking midfielder Fumnaya Shomotun is a product of Barnet Football Club's successful Academy and joined the Bees in 2014.

Born in Nigeria, Fumnaya was previously with Brentford before joining Barnet. 

He made his first-team debut at the age of 16 when he featured as a substitute in an FA Trophy replay against Concord Rangers in December 2014.

At the start of the 2015/16 campaign Fumnaya signed a one-year professional contract at The Hive and gained invaluable experience with a loan spell at Staines Town.

He was handed his Football League debut as a substitute in the 2-0 win at Dagenham & Redbridge in February 2016 and scored his first Bees goal in a 3-1 loss to Hartlepool United a fortnight later.

Blessed with quick feet and excellent close control, Funaya is one to watch.
