Barnet new boy Shaun Batt says that he has moved to The Hive to bring stability back to his career.The forward has struggled with injury during the last two seasons with his former club Leyton Orient, but he believes that a move to the Bees will help him re-discover his best form.
The Sky Bet League 2 outfit are looking to adapt to a new level after promotion last season, but Batt is confident that they will be able to make an impact back in The Football League.
“I’m really happy to have signed. It is a good club with great facilities and I am looking forward to getting some stability back in my career,” the 28-year-old told Barnet’s official site.
“In terms of circumstances it is a great club for me and I knew that it is the right place for me to be.
“The guys had a great year last year and I am more than happy to play a part in what will hopefully be another successful season.”
At Barnet, Batt will link up with Martin Allen, who is in charge of the London club.
The 49-year-old manager has already bolstered his options considerably this summer, and he is pleased to have strengthened his squad further with the addition of Batt.
“I’m pleased that we have managed to get in another forward player and if he stays fit then we have got a match winner on our hands,” Allen enthused.
“No doubt it will take a bit of time for him to achieve the supreme fitness levels of our players, and Shaun will have to work extremely hard to get to our levels.”
