BARNET Chairman Tony Kleanthous says the club will dust itself down and fight to regain its league status after the disappointment of relegation last season.
After a poor start, the Bees found themselves in the unlikely position of having their fate in their own hands as they travelled to Northampton Town for their last match of the season.
A 2-0 defeat at The Sixfields Stadium condemned them to a place in the Conference Premier for this campaign, but Kleanthous insists his club will bounce back.
“It happens,” he said. “That’s the way it goes for us but it’s okay, we will just start again and rebuild.”
“We’ve spent four years trying to hold on to our League status and now we’ve slipped down, but it doesn’t matter because we are going to pick ourselves up and get on with it.”
“This club doesn’t die, it just picks itself up and moves on so that’s what we are going to do.”
Barnet went down with a record points tally for any club relegated from League Two but Kleanthous insisted he was proud of his club’s efforts to stay in the division.
“We had the record when we last went down and we broke our own record,” he said.
“It’s just typical. We started the season with only three points from 12 games and then we powered our way back through before slipping through the net at the end.”
