Barnet Under 23’s were convincing winners on the road at Colchester United in their first match of the new year.
Michael Nelson’s side were in Central League Cup action this afternoon and fielded a strong starting line-up.
New signing Fuad Sule got an hour under his belt as he continues towards full match fitness following his move from Bohemians, meanwhile Malakai Mars managed 67 minuted on his return from injury.
Barnet took the lead in the 10th minute through Nana Kyei and doubled their advantage 10 minutes later when Malakai Mars struck.
Kyei doubled his personal tally in the 34th minute. It was a much tighter affair for the remainder of the match, but substitute Shane Cojocarel made it a rout, scoring the fourth goal with three minutes to play.
