Once again the goals flowed, as they did against Crystal Palace on Saturday, for Barnet’s latest pre-season friendly, which ended in an eventual win at St Albans City on Tuesday.

Primarily a young squad, which was mainly the side – to start – that ended that Palace defeat, came from behind before eventually securing a three-two win at Clarence Park.

Captain for the night Gash put us ahead early on but St Albans were soon level through Thomas. The hosts came from behind to lead two-one at the break when Malcolm finished off a move.

Four changes at the break didn’t see us get back into the game but when another seven changes were made by Martin Allen that’s when we made it two-two, thanks to 17-year-old Taylor, who scored from 25-yards.

Recent signing Batt scored what proved to be the winner, curling home at the midway point of the second half.

Barnet: Kai McKenzie-Lyle (Chris Haigh 61); Harry Taylor (Justin Nwogu 61), Joe Gater (Hakeem Odofin 46)), Bira Dembele (Charlie Kennedy 61), Sam Muggleton (Tamille Roache 46); Mauro Vilhete (Ryan Gondoh 61), Conor Clifford (Fumnaya Shomotun 46), Wesley Fonguck (Shaun Batt 46 (Nana Kyei 78)), Luke Gambin (Jack Taylor 61); Kevin Lisbie (Mathew Stevens 61), Michael Gash (c) (Shane Cojocarel 61).

Back in the mix was Conor Clifford, he’s been training with us this pre-season following his loan last term but hadn’t – up to that point – seen anything confirmed about a contract being signed following his Southend release.

Allen took a chance to, once again, look at plenty of players but did give some others longer, not that anyone got more than 60-minutes!
