Barnet FC to Remain in Stadium for One More Season

By Community | March 13, 2012

English Football League Two team Barnet have announced plans to remain at Underhill for one last season.

The club has contacted the Football League confirming their plans to stay at their home of 105 years whilst preparing for a permanent relocation.

Chairman Tony Kleanthous told the Barnet Times: “As always, our supporters will be first to know once the club is able to announce any future plans.

“I have made it clear several times that we have no long-term ambitions to stay at Underhill.

“Since we announced our intention to relocate we have had much positive communication from those who really value us as a community asset.

“It’s so nice to talk constructively with people who have a positive attitude about what can be done in partnership with our club.”

The Bees will also move staff to new offices in Edgware.

Staff will be housed at the club’s Hive site, with the removal of temporary offices at Underhill allowing further access to the southern turnstiles.

The club are looking for a permanent home with short-term ground-sharing options and a potential new stadium being considered.
