Barnet Football Club


Barnet Football Club are pleased to announce the signing of Nicky Bailey on a free transfer.

The midfielder arrives at The Hive on a short term deal.

Bailey is returning for his second stint with The Bees, having been part of the Conference winning side of 2004-05.

The 31-year-old joined Barnet from Sutton United for £10,000 and went on to make 141 appearances between 2004 to 2007 – scoring 21 goals.

He won the club’s coveted Player of the Year award in 2007 before moving on to Southend United for £175,000.

A similarly successful spell with the Shrimpers saw Bailey progress to play Championship football with Charlton Athletic.

The Putney-born midfielder played 95 games and scored 26 goals, before Middlesbrough paid the Addicks £1.4 million to take him to the Riverside Stadium in 2010.

After 111 matches Bailey moved on to Millwall when his contract expired in 2013.

He played 39 times for the Lions, until their relegation from the Championship last season.

Everyone at Barnet FC is delighted to see Nicky back at Barnet, and wish him every success when he pulls on the black and amber shirt once again!
