Former Bee joins Blue Square South side

Glenn Poole has joined Blue Square South club, Braintree and the former Bee scored twice in this afternoon's 3-1 away win at Welling. Braintree are currently 7 points clear at the top of the division and must be favourites to gain promotion to the Blue Square Premier.

Poole had his contract terminated by the club today after Paul Fairclough told the former Brentford midfield player that he was not part of his first team plans. Poole elected to leave the ‘mutual consent’. He scored a spectacular goal at Chesterfield on his debut on the opening day of the season but his time at Underhill was hit by injury and he never really established himself at the club.

Glenn Poole started his career at Thurrock before joining up with Mark Stimson at Grays in 2005. He made over 80 appearances for the Essex side scoring 22 goals, a good haul for a midfield player. In 2007 he had a short spell at Rochdale before joining Brentford. He scored 21 goals in two seasons at Griffin Park and helped ‘the other Bees’ win promotion to League One in 2009. Poole looked a talented player when he played against Barnet and it was somewhat surprising when Brentford manager, Andy Scott released him at the end of that season. Last season, Poole had spells at Grays and AFC Wimbledon. Barnet Mad wishes Poole all the best for the future.
