Barnet midfielder Curtis Weston believes the Bees have enough quality to put sides to the sword in the Skrill Conference this season.
The former Gillingham man, who signed for Barnet at the start of last season, featured heavily for the Bees towards the end of the club’s League Two campaign.
And the 26–year-old believes that a win in the season opener at home to Chester FC will give Barnet the ideal platform to mount a serious challenge for promotion this season.
“We need to look to get straight back up which is what our aim is this season, so we’ll just go all out and try and blow teams away which we should do with the squad we’ve got,” he said.
“We shouldn’t think that it’s going to be easy [playing Chester] because they obviously did well last season to get promoted and they’re going to want to keep that going.
“But we’ve got to be strong, we’re at home, we’ve got a good squad and we should be able to get three points and get ourselves off to a good start.
“I think it’s massive for us to get a good start,” he continued.
“In the first few games if we come right out of the blocks, we should blow teams away.
“If we can do that it will give us a good start and give us a good base for the rest of the season.”
