Darren Currie admitted he was “embarrassed” by Barnet’s FA Trophy exit to Southern League Division One Central side Halesowen Town.

The Yeltz sent the game to extra time late on when Luke Yates cancelled out Josh Walker’s opener for the Bees, and they produced arguably the shock of the tournament in the additional period when Simeon Cobourne bundled home the winner.

Barnet never really got to grips with a difficult playing surface at The Hive and looked second best for much of the contest, which was the main point that irked their boss.

He said: “I’m quite embarrassed, in all fairness. Without being disrespectful to the opponents, I’m embarrassed by how we’ve played in relation to how we’ve been playing of late.

“[It was] difficult conditions, pitch is poor, but it’s the same for both teams. They played the pitch better than us. They limited how many passes they tried to play. We probably tried to play a bit too much at times.

“Just poor decision making. I’m quite embarrassed and obviously disappointed. I’ve got to try and clear my head and look at this game as just a one-off because we’re still in a good place in the league, but when I look at this game in isolation it was a really poor day for us and I’m gutted for myself, I’m gutted for the fans and what the players have done is missed a wonderful opportunity to get themselves on the doorstep of Wembley.

“They got what they deserved today because they were poor.”
