Martin Allen has made his first signing of the January transfer window by signing former Kidderminster striker, Michael Gash, a player who has impressed when he has played against the Bees at the Hive.
Gash began his career at Cambridge City before moving to local rivals, Cambridge United in 2006. A year later he joined Ebbsfleet and scored 13 goals in 45 appearances for them before moving to York City in 2009 for £40,000. At York, Gash scored 7 goals in 56 appearances in 2 years and had a loan spell at Rushden & Diamonds where he scored 6 goals in 18 games.
In 2011, Gash rejoined Cambridge United and scored 20 goals in 69 appearances. While at the Abbey Stadium, Gash also had loan spells at Braintree and Kidderminster Harriers, where he scored an impressive 7 goals in 13 games. Gash helped the Harriers reach the Conference Premier play-offs at the end of 2012/13 and scored in the 1st leg against Wrexham but Kidderminster failed to make the final losing 5-2 on aggregate. In the summer of 2013 he moved to Aggborough on a permanent basis. Gash scored 24 appearances for Kidderminster in 70 appearances and was top scorer for th Harriers last season. He scored 3 times for them this season including one in the 3-3 draw at the Hive. Gash also had a loan spell at Nuneaton Town this season after Kidderminster were struggling financially.
Gash' who is 28, has signed on until the end of the season and would seem to be an excellent signing for the Bees by Martin Allen, particularly as, since the end of Bernard Mensah's loan spell from Watford, Barnet have had very little cover up front for John Akinde & Charlie MacDonald.
Barnet Mad welcomes Michael to the Hive.
