Strikers Taiwo Atieno and Melvin Holwijn have left Barnet after their contracts with the Bees expired.

Atieno joined the Bees on a one-month contract over Christmas and made four appearances for the club, scoring one goal against Bradford City.

Barnet assistant head coach Ulrich Landvreugd confirmed after the weekend defeat to Burton Albion that Atieno's contract with the club had expired.

Holwijn made his only appearance for Barnet as a 83rd minute substitute in the 1-1 draw with AFC Wimbledon in December 2012.

Prior to joining the Bees, Holwijn had played across Europe with a spell in Greece at Iraklis Thessalonik and a year in Germany with FC Carl Zeiss Jena.

He also played for several clubs in his native Holland.
