Barnet winger Keanu Marsh-Brown has revealed the club’s management was a significant reason for him signing a contract extension, writes Josh Ilan.
The talented 21-year-old penned a new long-term deal last week after banging in an impressive eight league goals from midfield this season.
He was on target again at the weekend as Barnet crashed out of the FA Trophy following a 2-1 defeat to Grimsby Town at the Hive.
The former Fulham prospect attracted interest from teams higher up the pyramid during the summer and Barnet are keen to protect their prize-asset.
Marsh-Brown is enjoying his football at the moment and says that is in no small part thanks to Barnet coaches Edgar Davids, Dick Schreuder and Ulrich Landvreugd.
“I think the management staff have kept faith in me,” Marsh-Brown said. “The boys want to get us back into League Two. This was the best thing for me to do for my career.”
“The club have moved into a fantastic new stadium and the squad we have is superb considering we’re in the Conference.”
Barnet lie just outside the play-off zone with 22 league games gone, however Marsh-Brown remains confident the pre-season target of promotion can still be achieved.
“If we keep winning games and pushing on there’s every chance,” he added. “I want to stay in this form, carry on scoring and to help the team.
“I’m also confident the coaching staff will add even stronger players to the squad in January and we can make a big push for the top in the second-half of the season.”
Barnet return to Conference Premier action this weekend at Hyde.
