Joe Devera is recovering from his tonsil operation but will be ready to be back back for pre-season training next week.
The young Bees right-back had the operation last Tuesday in which his tonsils were removed, but there were assurances given that he will have recovered by Wednesday, the day on which the Barnet players meet for pre-season.
Paul Fairclough still has to recruit a number of players ahead of the 2007/08 campaign in which the Bees are aiming for a top-7 finish that would mean at least a play-off position, but with the squad as it is fans arn’t too optimistic at the team’s chances.
All of the new signings so far have been from lower leagues and many positions still need to be strengthened – in fact every position there is. But supporters are being encouraged to be patient as Fairclough continues to seek out talented footballers as get them ready for the new approaching season.
