BARRY FRY

Chairman Stan Flashman allegedly sacked him 19 times, he cleared the pitch of frost on Christmas morning and paid the players wages from the fruit machines in the social club.

LESTER FINCH & DENIS KELLEHER

Next in the spotlight a goal machine from our Conference winning days and early seasons as a Football League Club.

The next in the spotlight is a goalkeeper who is simply loved at Underhill. Legends are a subject that is always open to discussion and opinions, but there are some players who just are.

LES EASON

In the spotlight is someone who scored goals at Underhill in the 1960's and 70's with nonchalant ease and is the main reason for me changing my allegiance from Finchley FC to Barnet FC as wee lad and I am very proud to say that over the last ten years we have become firm friends.
