Barnet's Sam Togwell looking to push on in Sky Bet League 2

4 June 2015

Sam Togwell has agreed a new one-year deal at Barnet, and believes the club are set for another successful season.

Togwell made 42 appearances for the Bees last season as they secured the Conference crown, and he believes that the team are more than capable of competing at the right end of Sky Bet League 2 in 2015/16.

The midfielder's whole professional career had been played in The Football League prior to his move to The Hive last August, and Togwell is looking forward to competing at that level once again.

“I’m really happy it’s been sorted and we can now look forward to pushing on with a successful season in League 2,” the 30-year-old told the club's official website.

“I’m delighted with the amount I played last season, and I’m hoping to get a similar amount of appearances in the upcoming campaign.

“I’ve played league football for my entire career; last season was my first outside of the top four tiers so it feels great to be back. It’s a good place to be, with bigger stadiums and larger crowds.”

Togwell's signature is the latest in what has already been a busy summer for Bees boss Martin Allen. New signings Ben Tomlinson and Tom Champion were joined by experienced striker Kevin Lisbie last week.

“It will be tougher in League Two but I fully back myself to play at this level, I’ve played in over 400 games throughout my career and I feel I’ve got the experience to deal with it,” Togwell added.

“I believe that with the majority of the squad we had last year, plus the new additions to the team, there is no reason why we can’t push ourselves up toward the top regions of League 2.”
