To many Barnet fans, Darren Currie is someone who will need little introduction. During his playing days, the midfielder made 136 appearances for the Bees between 1998 and 2001.
He would score on his debut, become a fan favourite on the terraces and would be a part of the squad that would reach the Division Three play-offs, scoring one of the goals of the season away to Swansea City.
He would earn moves to Championship sides Brighton & Hove Albion and Ipswich Town amongst others.
His near two-decade career saw him make over 600 appearances across all divisions in the Football League before finally making the step into coaching at Boreham Wood.
He has worked with John Still at Dagenham & Redbridge for a number of seasons and we welcome this blend of youth and experience.
This is the next exciting piece in the jigsaw as Barnet continue to prepare for the 2018/19 season. Work is well underway to strengthen the squad with new additions as we look to bounce back with force.
Speaking on his return, Currie has said “With my affiliation with the club from my playing days here, I’m very pleased to be back and pleased to be working under John and the Chairman.
“Obviously, the place has changed a considerable amount since I was playing here but I’m really pleased to be back!”
Chairman Tony Kleanthous has welcomed Darren’s return to the club.
“It’s always great to see past players develop their careers and Darren is an exciting young coach who we think will have a big future.
“It’s good to have him teaming up with John as we continue our preparations for next season.”
We welcome Darren back to the club and wish him every success this season!
