Barnet today made 3 signings to add to the signing of Olly Lee yesterday. First up was a familiar face at Underhill in defender, Jack Saville who joined the Bees on a short term contract until the end of last season after arriving initially on loan from Southampton. Jack made his Bees’ debut as a substitute in the FA Cup 1st round match at Southport coming on as a substitute and made his first start the following Saturday in the 2-0 away win at Bristol Rovers. He played in both legs of the Southern area Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final against Swindon Town and in the final match of the season at Burton when the Bees won 2-1 to ensure League Two survival. In all, Saville made 21 first team appearances for the Bees last season.
Next signing was Freddie Warren who was released at the end of the season by Charlton Athletic, another club with connections with Mark Robson.Warren didn’t manage to break into the first team at the Valley and was sent out on loan last season to Kettering Town and Hayes & Yeading. The 19 year old midfield player was also sent on work experience to Ryman League club, Concord Rangers.
The final signing of the day was Ahmed Abdulla, 20 year old defensive midfield player. Abdulla, who is Saudi Arabian, is another of Robson’s new signings with a West Ham connection having played at Upton Park as a youth player, after beginning his career at Arsenal. He had a loan spell with Swindon Town last season, making 7 first team appearances and later went on loan to Dagenham & Redbridge. On his return to West Ham he was released and then returned to the Daggers on a short term contract. In all, Ahmed made 7 first team appearances for Dagenham last season.
Barnet Mad welcomes Freddie and Ahmed to Underhill and welcomes back Jack Saville.
