Cadogan: I Make Things Happen

8 October 2013

Our new winger will create chance after chance for the players around him.

Keiron Cadogan is hoping to have a big impact at Barnet after joining the club last weekend.

The 23-year-old made 28 appearances for Aldershot last season, scoring one goal and topping their assist chart.

The former Crystal Palace man will be hoping to make his second start on Tuesday against Woking after a difficult debut against Welling United.

“It was great to get out there but it was a difficult game. We had to show a lot of character and the boys really worked hard for each other.

“Thankfully we dug in and secured a point but I thought we would have won had it not been for the red card because it changed the match and it became more of a battle from that point on.”

Cadogan was a bright spark in the opening stages and although he was frustrated by the red card he put the team first and battled hard to help secure a deserved point.

“It was more difficult for me to show what I can do after the red card but the team comes first.

“I like to get on the ball and make things happen. In the opening stages I did that but the important thing overall is that we got something from the game. 

The winger has been training with the Bees for a number of weeks but he knew what to expect having worked with Edgar Davids at Crystal Palace.

“I’m really enjoying training and it is very similar to how it is at Crystal Palace. It is a very high standard.

“The tempo is high and Edgar demands a lot from us which is good because it helps you improve.

He added: “I know his mind set and I know how he likes to play. He is also Edgar Davids so I want to gain as much knowledge from his as I can.

Cadogan topped Aldershot’s assist chart last season and he is aiming to do the same at The Hive.

“I have got a bit of flair about me, I like to bring other players into the game and create opportunities.

“Like all players I also like to score goals but I’m aiming to improve every aspect of my game during my time here.”

A big part of achieving that goal will be the other players in the side and, Cadogan has been impressed with what he has seen so far.

“Being around good players will only bring the best out of me and vice versa. It is hard to find a footballing side in the Conference so I think Barnet is the perfect club for me.

“I’m still young and I’m still learning but hopefully I can keep improving, score goals, create goals and help the team win as many games as possible.”
