Barnet chairman concern over Underhill future

Barnet

Barnet chairman Tony Kleanthous has voiced his concerns over the short-term future of the side's Underhill ground.

The Bees have been in discussion with the local council over access to the stadium, but Kleanthous says issues still remain.

"These are difficult circumstances - it is a very serious situation," he said.

The League Two side have been looking for a new ground for nearly a decade, after problems with access at Underhill and issues over redeveloping the site.

Kleanthous added: "It is quite clear that we have reached a stalemate."

The Bees chairman now plans to apply to the Football League to ensure the club are allowed to play at least half of their fixtures at Underhill for the 2012-13 season, due to worries that they will not be able to gain a licence to operate for every home fixture.
