Working closely with the Youth Team, Academy Manager Henry Newman has bright hopes for the season ahead.
The Youth Team and all staff are targetting a successful campaign both in terms of their performances in the league, and the number of players having an involvement in the First Team.
Ultimately, the sole goal of a Youth Team player is to get a First Team contract. We are confident at Barnet that we have players within the Youth Team that are capable of making this step up, and all of our staff will work throughout the season to make this dream a reality for as many players as possible.
Barnet aims to provide the most holistic programme possible for all its Academy players, particularly the Youth Team, as the players look to make the step up from Youth Team football into the First Team.
All of staff across the department are always working to improve both the individuals that we currently have within our age-groups, as well as to find new players that can add to the quality that we already have within the Academy.
