Robert Beckwith has signed for the Bees following a successful trial.

Beckwith, 22 years of age, kept three clean sheets during his time at Underhill when he was given an opportunity by Paul Fairclough along with various friendlies to impress thanks to the injury sustained by Lee Harrison.

Beckwith played in the Championship for Luton Town and was highly regarded there and was linked with big-money moves to the likes of Premiership giants Arsenal after impressive displays. But he has only managed 21 appearances to date after an injury-plagued career which included a season out of action.

He had an unsuccessful stint at Chesterfield but now will hope to revive his career with Barnet under the coaching of Harrison.

The new signing told Barnet’s website: ‘I am absolutely delighted to be back in the Football League. It’s a young squad that Paul Fairclough has got together and it is good that I am part of of establishing the side as a force in League Two.’

Beckwith is a good 6’2′ tall and will be available for selection for tomorow’s league opener against Morecambe and becomes the second Luton Town player to join the Bees this summer, following in the footsteps of Michael Leary.
