Left-back turned left-midfielder, Andre Blackman joined Barnet in August 2017 from Crawley Town to help reinforce the left flank. Starting his career as part of Arsenal’s youth academy, Blackman went on to play for Celtic, Plymouth Argyle and a brief spell at Moroccan club MAS Fez.
Despite making 36 appearances for The Red Devils in all competitions last season, he drifted in and out of the team and hopes to secure a starting position in a highly competitive team. His debut for Barnet certainly helped his cause, scoring in the Checkatrade Trophy against AFC Wimbledon, leading to his League debut for The Bees away at Swindon a few days later.
If the 26-year-old can keep performing in his new role, there’s no reason why we can’t see Blackman cement a first-team position in the future.
