Rossi Eames

First Team Head Coach


Rossi Eames was appointed Head Coach of the Bees in May 2017, becoming the youngest Head Coach in the top 92 clubs in English football.

Eames’ sporting background began in gymnastics, competing at British Championships and moving to Slovenia for two years at the age of 16 for coaching.

He retired from the sport in his early 20s and moved into football. After a brief playing spell at Amersham Town and Chesham United, he moved to study Sports Science and Coaching at Leeds Met University.

Placements at Bradford City and Leeds United followed during his time in Yorkshire before moving back down south and getting a job at Barnet as video analyst as well as a role coaching the Under 13s.

Rossi progressed through the age brackets before Martin Allen took him under his wing and brought him in as part of the first team set up.

Following a couple of interim spells in the 2016/17 season in charge of the first team, he was appointed on a full term basis at the end of the season.

On the 8 April 2017, Rossi was awarded the Lester Finch Award at the Barnet player of the year awards for his outstanding contribution to the football club.
