Barnet Football Club has today parted company with Manager Tim Flowers by mutual consent.
Despite the hope for a change of fortunes after Tim’s arrival and the best efforts of his coaching team both on and off the pitch, the team has continued to struggle. As a result, both parties felt it best for a change in the dugout. We would like to thank him for his tireless efforts since taking the helm in December.
Speaking on his departure, Flowers said: “As challenging as it’s been I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time with Barnet FC. It just got to a point where I couldn’t get any more out of the team.
"There are a decent amount of games left to play and certainly enough to get out of the bottom of the table and I believe things will turn but it might just need a different voice in the dressing room.
Recruitment was always going to be key and I was supported by the Chairman with the 9 players I brought in. Timing was the main factor and the loan market is tough as players need time to get match fit, which is always hard during the middle of the season.
Ultimately, we brought in some players who tried hard but it just hasn’t happened. Personally, I’d like to wish everyone at the Club and all the fans my very best for the future.”
Barnet FC Chairman, Tony Kleanthous, said: “I would like to place on record my thanks to Tim for all of his efforts for our Football Club and wish him and his staff the very best of luck for their future endeavours. Ultimately, on this occasion, it just hasn’t worked out, which is disappointing because of the high regard in which I hold Tim.”
Head of Performance, Gary Anderson, will oversee training in the short term ahead of this weekend's National League fixture with Bromley.
The Club will make no further comment at this time.
