Barnet have put all of the club’s staff on notice, in light of the current shutdown of the football season and continuing uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic.
The club, who were relegated out of the EFL in 2018, have been trying to reach the play-offs in this season’s National League under Darren Currie. Today, the following has been announced:
“In order to meet the challenges ahead of us, we will have to dismantle our existing cost structure and look to rebuild for next season with a much leaner cost base. We have therefore taken the difficult decision to put all Barnet FC staff on notice.
“This is to include all first-team coaching and backroom staff, the Barnet FC academy and many of the operational staff across all areas of the club. Having previously announced that all academy funding the club receives from the EFL comes to an end at the end of this season, academy staff had already been made aware of the situation.
“Supporters will understandably want to know how this situation affects our head coach Darren Currie. Darren has a long notice period within his contract and as such, should the season resume, he will remain in charge until at least the end of the season and possibly beyond.”
