Defender joins on loan with forward Lopez
Barnet Football Club have signed Bondz N’Gala on an initial one-month loan deal from Stevenage with a view to a deal until the end of the season.
The Defender began his career with West Ham United joining the club at the age of 13 before progressing through the youth ranks and into the Development Squad.
He joined Weymouth in January 2008 until the end of the season but his deal was cut short after one-month following a change of management at the Conference National side.
After captaining the Dev Squad on a number of occasions N’Gala travelled with the first-team squad on their pre-season tour of the United States.
In November 2008 he joined Milton Keynes Dons on a one-month loan deal, he made three appearances for the club before returning to Upton Park for the remainder of the season.
The following season he made his first-team debut for West Ham, coming on as a 63rd minute substitute in the club’s 3-1 League Cup defeat against Bolton Wanderers.
A month later he joined Scunthorpe on a one-month loan deal before being loaned out for a fourth time in March 2010 to Plymouth Argyle until the end of the 2009/10 season.
Despite the Pilgrims being relegated to League One, manager Paul Mariner praised N’Gala’s impact and following his release from West Ham he joined the club on a two-year deal.
He made 26 appearances scoring one goal in the 2010/11 season but Plymouth’s well documented financial problems saw them relegated for a second consecutive season and N’Gala left the club.
In July 2011 he joined League One side Yeovil Town; he played 31 games for the club and scored two goals.
Mark Newson, Gary Smith’s new assistant at Stevenage, worked with N’Gala at West Ham and he joined the club for an undisclosed fee in July 2012.
He has made 16 appearances for the League One club this season and could fill the void left by Andy Iro who returns in the opposite direction.
