The ins and outs of 2011/12

With the transfer window well and truly shut now, I thought it’d be best to keep up to date with what’s being happening at Barnet. Unfortunately, there was no such drama as was witnessed in the Premier League; in fact, it was reasonably quiet – with nerves kicking in over rumours, which were soon put to bed. The loan window, however, opens next week and will remain open until the fourth Thursday in November, in the case of this year, the 25th – I’ll hopefully update this during the next window in January.
August window
Dean Brill
> Oldham Athletic
Goalkeeper Dean Brill initially joined on a two week trial but signed a contract, replacing Jake Cole, who left at the end of last season. He quickly cemented his place as first choice keeper, ahead of young Liam O’Brien.
Mark Byrne
> Nottingham Forest
Mark Byrne joined after being released from Nottingham Forest. He played twice on-loan with the club last season, with an unfortunate injury ruling him out for a couple of months and a return to his parent club. Whilst on loan, he was at one point the club’s top scorer and is a popular choice with fans, who were happy to see him sign a permanent contract.
Sam Deering
> Oxford United
Another of last season’s loanees is Sam Deering, who joined the club after being released from Oxford United. Like Byrne, LSD was a massive hit with fans whilst on loan, so it was no real surprise to see him join the club on a permanent basis. His runs down the wings and domination of defenders is something to look forward come match time.
Exodus Geohaghon
> Free agent
Big defender Exodus joined after his release from Peterborough United in August. He initially came on trial but signed a one month contract following its success. The Rory Delap of League 2, his long throw is weapon to frighten defenders, especially in the penalty area.
Danny Senda
> Free agent
Like Exodus, Danny Senda also joined the club as a free agent, following his release from relegated Bristol Rovers.
Jake Cole
< Plymouth Argyle
Tom Coulton
< Free agent
Joe Devera
< Swindon Town
Rossi Jarvis
< Cambridge United
Danny Kelly
< Free agent
Glen Southam
< Dover Athletic
Charlie Stimson
< Free agent
Reece Yorke
< Free agent
In and out!
Jason Price and Ryan Watts
Both Jason Price and Ryan Watts joined the club on one month contracts, which were cancelled at the end of last month. Jason Price made seven starts, scoring once. It was obvious his contract had been cancelled when he was left out of the 3-1 win against Colchester United in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy. Ryan Watts, on the other hand, never played – suffering with a hamstring injury when he arrived, which still hasn’t healed.
