Barnet dangerman Shaquile Coulthirst is targeting a 20-goal season on the back of winning the SkyBet League Two player of the month award.

The former Spurs academy graduate netted an astounding six goals in seven games during September, including a hat-trick against Swindon in a 4-1 win at the start of the month.

Coulthirst, 22, is already enjoying his most prolific season in professional football with eight goals in all competitions for the Bees this season, despite missing Saturday's goalless draw with Coventry City through injury.

And he is targeting a big season at The Hive, after two stop-start years in League One with Peterborough United.

"I want to score as many goals as possible, in the 20s or 30s and see where that takes us," he said. "Hopefully it can put us in the promotion places.

"Scoring my first hat-trick was good for me. My family was happy – the first one, I nicked it from the centre-back and put it through hthe keeper’s legs.

"I was in a lot of space for the second and didn’t really think about it, but the third one, I wanted to score the hat-trick, I took a few extra touches and beat a few defenders before I slotted it in."

Barnet are Coulthirst's ninth club despite his tender age and the forward, who grew up alongside Harry Kane in the Spurs youth set-up, but he may have found a more permanent home in North London if his start with the Bees is anything to go by.

"I’ve just been settling in with a new club, new surroundings and new people," he said. 

"They’ve helped me a lot and that’s shown on the pitch. It’s been good coming into training every day working towards a Saturday or Tuesday game, and get ready with the lads."
