Keanu Marsh-Brown talks to Barnet FC for the first time since penning a new deal
Keanu Marsh-Brown revealed it was a ‘no brainer’ to stay at Barnet Football Club after being offered a chance to stay at The Hive.
The talented winger, who spent the latter stages of last season with the club, signed on Wednesday and he is hoping to have a big impact in the Conference Premier.
The former Fulham trainee admitted he wasn’t sure he would stay at the club but after positive talks with the management staff his is delighted to be a Bee.
“I might not have expected to be here this season but after speaking to the coaching staff and manager I am very glad I am.
“I felt comfortable playing here and I get on with everyone really well so when I was offered the opportunity to stay it was a no brainer.”
Marsh-Brown continued by showing his appreciation to the coaching staff who showed a burning desire to keep him at the club.
“I didn’t want to go to another team where I would have had to start over all over again. I know the players and I have great relationship with Edgar [Davids] and Uli [Landvreugd] so I am happy to be back.
“I also spoke to Paul Fairclough who told me that the manager wanted me in his plans and it is very important that a manager values you as a player so I am very happy.”
Although the 20-year-old will be dropping into non-league football for the first time he believes that both he and the club will not remain there for long with the talent they have at their disposal.
“I have played in League One and League Two but coming down to the Conference Premier will be a challenge for me.
“That said I think we have a very talented team and we have many players who have performed at a higher level so I am confident we can have a very good season.”
He continued: “We also have a lot of young players who have a point to prove and are hungry to play. We have a great mix of experience and youth, everything is set for us to push for promotion.”
