Gary Borrowdale enjoying life at Barnet following his loan move from Queens Park Rangers
It has been just under two weeks since Gary Borrowdale joined Barnet and in that short space of time he certainly has had a crash course in the fortunes of the Bees’ season.
Having made his debut in the unfortunate defeat against Northampton he has featured in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy victory at Gillingham and made his third appearance in the last minute loss against Shrewsbury.
The 26-year-old’s stay at Underhill is only scheduled to last a month but he is enjoying regular first team football having been left out of Queens Park Rangers 25 man Premier League squad.
“When you are off every weekend it is depressing because you want to be out on the pitch and do what you love to do.
“I just want to be playing regularly. All the lads in the dressing room are great and I am enjoying my football which is the main thing for me.
“There is still more match sharpness to come and I am getting there with every game so I just want to help the team for the time I am here.”
Borrowdale has slotted seamlessly into the Barnet side and despite recent results he has been impressed with the way Barnet have performed.
“In the three games I have been here we have played some good stuff.
“Going forward I think there is a real attacking threat in the team but against Shrewsbury we have conceded poor goals and go back with the mentality of losing a game when we could have and should have had six points from the last two matches,” the left-back added.
He continued: “I think from what I have seen Barnet should be ok this season. The way we are playing deserves more but we conceding silly goals or don’t finish teams off when we are on top.
“At the moment it just seems that the luck isn’t with the side but things change in football very quickly and you never know what the next game holds.”
Speaking after Borrowdale had joined the Bees Lawrie Sanchez said the defender had solved one of Barnet’s defensive problems.
With his loan only lasting until the end of this month (October) the former Coventry City player has not ruled out extending his stay at Underhill. He said: “We will have a sit down at the end of the month and if I am enjoying it I don’t see any reason why something can’t be done between the two clubs.
“Dropping down to League Two is a bit different from the Premier League but every club is run their own way and it is a good to be at Barnet.”
The defender’s move to the Bees came about very quickly and he said once Barnet had shown their interest it was an easy decision for him to sign for the club.
“The boss is very experienced and has managed at the top level. So it was a good move for everyone I think. It allows me to still be at home and playing regular football again.”
