Barnet have appointed experienced coach Alex Armstrong as their new number two.

A 20-year career in various clubs' backroom staffs has seen Armstrong head up the sport science departments at Wolves, Cardiff and Southampton, as well as being appointed director of performance at Sheffield Wednesday.

Most recently, Armstrong has served as assistant head coach for the New Zealand national team.

Head coach Rossi Eames said of his appointment: "Alex has got a fantastic background. One, he's a coach, but he also has a sports science background and he's worked at some fantastic clubs like Wolves and Cardiff.

"One thing that strikes me about Alex is he's a winner – he's got promotions under his belt as an assistant manager, he's been to an FA Cup final and he's going to add a huge amount at Barnet."
