Barnet set to move to Edgware

Barnet have been given permission to relocate to Edgware by the
Football League.

The npower League Two strugglers are hoping to move to their new
home – The Hive – in time for the start of next season after plans
to extend the tenure of their existing Underhill home failed to
come to fruition.

Club chairman Tony Kleanthous tonight told his club’s official
website: “We waited until the last possible minute before applying
to the League as I was not prepared to take this action until we
had exhausted all avenues with Barnet Council.

“There can be no better statement of our intent and with the new
facilities at The Hive and extra investment in the squad we are
looking forward to the future.”
