Transfer | Andre Boucaud signs for Barnet FC

28 June 2018

33-year-old Trinidadian midfielder Andre Boucaud becomes the Bees eight signing of the season, joining on a two-year deal from Dagenham & Redbridge for an undisclosed fee.

He was a first-team regular under John Still last season at the Daggers, making 41 appearances in the National League. He made 156 appearances across all competitions for the Victoria Road side.

The experienced midfielder started his career in the youth system at Queens Park Rangers but would make the switch to Reading FC. Whilst with the Royals he had a loan spell at Peterborough United before joining on a permanent basis.

He spent a couple of seasons at London Road which also featured a loan to Aldershot Town then joined Kettering Town for two spells either side of a period at Wycombe Wanderers. Moves to York City and Luton Town were followed by a transfer to Notts County where he spent two seasons.

Boucaud is a full international for Trinidad and Tobago. He picked up his first cap in 2004 and currently has 47 caps to his name, with two goals.

Speaking following his arrival, Andre said:

"I'm very excited and glad to get things over the line, it took a little while but everything is done and I'm very excited!

"A big factor was to work with gaffer, he asked me to come here and that was good. The whole setup here is great, it's not of non-league standard with all the facilities so that played a big part as well."

Manager John Still believes that Andre has a big part to play both on and off the pitch.

"I've known him as a player for a long time. When I went back to Dagenham, Andre was there and I think he'd would tell you that I wasn't certain he would be right for me and I had that conversation with him.

"Well, if ever a player has rammed something back at me it was. He is a terrific trainer, he's got a terrific attitude and he's a terrific player. I always remind him of that. He didn't sulk, he didn't moan he just got on with it and he became a big part of the last two years I spent there.

"He is exemplary as a player and one of the reasons I've brought him here is that he knows how to be a professional footballer. He will be a big influence on some of the young players, and there is quite a few, he'll be massive for them and I can't speak highly enough of him."

A full interview with Andre will be online shortly.

Welcome to Barnet, Andre!
