Lions Under 9 Whites were invited to play Barnet’s Under 9 academy development side at The Hive in midweek.
They represented the club impeccably and furthermore, impressed the Barnet hierarchy in attendance with a fine performance that resulted in a win.
Junior Head of Coaching Tony Gold was full of praise: ‘What stood out for me, was the methodology behind professional development centres. They are, naturally, completely focused on the individual, finding the ONE off the conveyor belt of thousands. Barnet had seven incredibly talented individuals, but as a team our boys were great. The contrast really was interesting’.
The great news is, that Barnet would be delighted to invite more of our age groups down in future and likewise bring one or two teams to Rowley Lane so watch this space as we grow links between the Bees and the Lions.
Gold added, ‘I believe it is great publicity for the club and shows the great work being achieved by all, Barnet were very complimentary’.
