Barnet have begun their summer recruitment with the double signing of Dan Bradley from Alfreton Town and Gillingham's Sam Muggleton.

Graham Stack and Jon Nurse have also agreed to take on player-coach roles for the 2014/15 season.

Bradley, 25, is a right-sided midfielder who joins from Conference Premier rivals Alfreton Town.

The 6ft2in midfielder made 45 appearances for Alfreton last term, scoring four times as The Reds finished a place below Martin Allen's side.

Speaking to the Bees' website, Allen said: "Dan Bradley is an attacking right-sided midfield player who I saw play for Alfreton versus Grimsby and he immediately caught my eye with his pace and athletic ability.

“I have met him and I like him and over the past couple of years several clubs have been chasing his signature so I think he will be good for us."

Eighteen-year-old Muggleton is already known to Barnet supporters after spending the final two months of last season on loan at The Hive from League One Gillingham.

Muggleton returns to Barnet on a free transfer after beeing released by the Gills yesterday.

Allen commented: “For me it was a no brainer to sign Sam Muggleton.

“He is an 18-year-old on a free transfer and he still has room to develop physically and technically and he has such an amazing long throw."

Barnet have also revealed goalkeeper Stack and versatile forward Nurse have agreed player-coach roles for next season.

"I have been in discussions with the chairman and Andrew Adie regarding the budget for staff and players and it is vital we make the best of what we have and utilise everyone’s skills to get the best players and staff combined," explained Allen.

"Jon Nurse has UEFA B qualifications but what is probably more important in my mind is that he has won two promotions.

“He is a very popular person and an excellent people person with similar skills that will help all our players to the legend Guiliano Grazioli.

“I don’t expect him to play every week and hopefully, if I get it right, never, which he fully understands," added Allen.

Discussing the decision to offer Stack a coaching role, Allen said: “He has helped me from day one, he is a top goalkeeper and he is good in the dressing room.

“First and foremost he has been reminded to concentrate on his job as a keeper but he will most definitely contribute to our overall planning and management of the players throughout the season.”

Allen has also revealed he is hoping to conclude more signings early next week.
