Barnet defender Gary Breen has left the club.

The 36-year-old, who played in the World Cup finals for the Republic of Ireland during his prime, has told the club that he is seeking a new challenge.

Breen is hoping to go into coaching and has recently obtained his coaching A licence.

Breen originally signed for the Bees with the intention of primarily helping to coach, but he ended up playing more games than intended, due to his good form and injuries to other players.

He played almost 50 matches for Barnet in the end.
