Successful trialist Ashley Carew has become Barnet’s second signing of the summer.

Carew is a 6’1′ midfielder, who has impressed Paul Fairclough
out on the right wing in his trials last week and he has been offered the chance to ‘resurrect’ his career.

The 21 year old said: ‘I am glad to be given the opportunity to resurrect my career with a Football League club and I hope to prove worthy of the manager’s faith in me;’ his most recent clubs have come in the former of Beckenham Town and Fisher Athletic, although he did use to play for Gillingham Town FC. He has scored 22 goals this season, as is known for scoring spectacular one, though whether he can do it at this level is a question.

On his second signing of the season (the pre-contract agreement with Anthony Thomas was Barnet’s first summer agreement), Fairclough said: ‘The first impressions when Ashley trained with us were very good and he did enough in the trial game to be given a chance.

With a career that has been downhill from the word ‘go,’ his new manager insisted this was his chance to prove he still has the ability to play at this level: ‘He starts with us with two blank pages. He can paint or write or design on those pages whatever pictures he wants,’ he told Barnet World.
