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.”
