Barnet Football Club


An unsurprisingly delighted Alex Nicholls admitted his match-winning strike topped off the perfect day as Barnet began a new era with a 1-0 win at high-flying Yeovil Town.
The attacker, who turned 29 on Friday, was introduced from the bench on the hour at Huish Park. 
With little over five minutes remaining he collected Curtis Weston’s pin-point pass and drilled a low shot beyond Glovers keeper Artur Krysiak to give Rossi Eames and Henry Newman a winning start.
"I’m over the moon," said Nicholls. "Personally it’s been a difficult couple of months for me, but I know what football is like – it can turn around so quickly. 
"The lads have been doing fantastic and I’m chuffed to be back in and around the team. Getting a goal has just topped it off."
The former Exeter City forward continued: "I had a good season last season and it’s been a bit stop-start this season for various reasons. 
"Rossi and Henry have come in and given us a fresh start and a clean slate and we’re looking to progress after today and I’m looking to get in the team and stay there."
