Barnet Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of central midfield player, Mitch Brundle. Our newest recruit joins after a spell with Dagenham and Redbridge and has committed to the Club on a two year deal.
Brundle adds plenty of National League experience to the Bees ranks and has played close to 250 career matches at this level, his knowledge of the league will certainly be a boost to Harry Kewell’s ranks.
Most recently, Brundle has spent time across London at Dagenham and Redbridge where he made 51 appearances scoring 13 goals during his two-year spell in East London. Last season, Brundle featured on 20 occasions and scored five goals, he’ll be hoping to make an impact now that he has made the move across the capital to The Hive London.
Prior to his time with the Daggers, the box-to-box midfielder has featured for the likes of Dover, Gateshead and Braintree Town within the fifth tier of the English game. Our newest recruit likes to get himself involved with the goals too, during his time at Dover Athletic he contributed to over a third of their goals in the 18/19 campaign, with eight goals and thirteen assists.
Brundle also brings plenty of leadership qualities to the side, he was captain at Dover Athletic for two seasons during his time in Kent, those qualities will certainly be welcomed at The Hive London with the Bees squad featuring plenty of young, upcoming talent, accompanied with experienced heads such as Brundle.
In his career, the midfielder started as a young player at Yeovil Town and has also featured for Cheltenham Town in the EFL after he joined them on loan from Bristol City.
Brundle shared his excitement for the season ahead as he spoke following signing for the Bees, he said:
“It’s been in the pipeline for a little while, I can see that it’s a massive Club but that’s only beneficial if we win the games on a Saturday and Tuesday! The gaffer has come in with his idea and the training has been fantastic. I’m delighted to be here and can’t wait to get started. I can’t wait for the start of the season.”
“I know what it’s like to play here, we need to make it horrible for teams to play here and make it our own. It’s going to be key to get the fans onside, but that starts with winning matches and performing. They will see that we are giving everything we can.”
We’re delighted to welcome Mitch to the Club and wish him every success for the upcoming season. The deal is subject to usual regulatory processes.
