Barnet will be kicking off the season away to newly-promoted Morecambe on Saturday 11th August. The game at Christie Park will be followed by the Carling Cup first round again away to Norwich before Barnet play their first home game of the season at home to Hereford United.

Boxing day sees the visit of fellow Londoners Dagenham & Redbridge, who are playing their debut season in the Football League, whilst on New Years Day there is also another short journey for the Bees, this time to Wycombe Wanderers.

Barnet play their final league game of the 2007/08 season away to Rotherham United. That game is on the 3rd of May, as the English season ends one week earlier that last year because of the European Championships.

Barnet are fully focused on gaining a promotion next season, despite a so far inexperienced and young squad being assembled from scratch, says manager Paul Fairclough, and a place in the top 7 come the end of the season, is the Bees’ aims. If Barnet achieve that next year it can definately be considered as a successful season due to the Centenary celebrations at Underhill Stadium for 100 years at the famous sloping ground, but more so due to the departure of most of Barnet’s players at the end of last season, as well as Barnet’s best players moving onto better things, like Simon King, who has already moved to Gillingham, Nicky Bailey, who is seeking a transfer and on the verge of making a move up the leagues, and Dean Sinclair, who will definatley be leaving after a compensation fee from a tribunal has been decided.
