Barnet FC to stay at Underhill for another season
5:35pm Monday 12th March 2012 in News
Barnet Football Club has announced it will play one last farewell season at Underhill.
The club has written to the Football League confirming plans to stay at its home of 105 years while it prepares for a permanent relocation.
Barnet FC has written to Barnet Council requesting a six-month extension to the existing cricket club lease which expires in December.
The lease on the land, which provides access to the south of the stadium, expires in December 2012.
Chairman Tony Kleanthous said: "As always, our supporters will be the first to know once the club is able to announce any future plans. I have made clear several times that we have no long term ambitions to stay at Underhill and since we announced our intention to relocate we have had much positive communication from those who really value us as a community asset.
"It's so nice to talk constructively with people who have a positive attitude about what can be done in partnership with our club."
