We’re delighted to announce the signing of striker Adam Marriott, the former Kings Lynn Town man becomes the Bees eigth signing of the summer!
Marriott makes the move to The Hive London on the back of a quite phenomenal goal record at former Club, Kings Lynn Town, the striker netted 66 goals in 99 appearances as he spearheaded the Linnets rise to The National League for the first time in their history.
During the 2019/20 season, the 30-year-old won The National League North Golden Boot Award, netting on 28 occasions in 31 matches during the curtailed campaign. His goals ensured that King Lynn went on to become champions and were subsequently promoted to the fifth tier.
Last season was also a good one for Marriott as he netted 6 goals in 19 matches for the newly-promoted side, before ending the season with a short spell at play-off chasing Eastleigh, where he scored the only goal to secure three points against champions Sutton United.
Prior to his time at The Walks Stadium, Marriott has spent time at Lincoln City where he helped the Imps to The National League title, as well as spells at Cambridge United, Cambridge City and Stevenage. All in all, his impressive record stands at 197 goals in 356 senior appearances, a record that is more than a goal every other game.
Speaking on his first day at The Hive London, Marriott said:
“Going into the new season, you want to be sorted as early as possible. Now that I am sorted, it gives me a chance to have a good pre-season ahead, so I am really looking forward to it. It’s a great Club and I am buzzing to get started with the rest of the boys.
“I had a couple of other offers, I wanted to go somewhere fresh and kick on, Barnet is a brilliant place. I had a look round last week and the manager is a great selling point as well, I hope to learn from him and develop my game.”
We’re delighted to welcome Adam to The Hive London and wish him well for the upcoming campaign. He joined his teammates for the first time earlier today, as pre-season got underway.
The deal is subject to the usual regulatory processes.
