Barnet suffer kit and beer chaos before opener with Notts County

Barnet suffer kit and beer CHAOS just 24 hours before National League opener with Notts County while shambolic start saw lack of staff, shirt numbers and Heineken at the Hive

  • Barnet endured a nightmare start to the new National League campaign
  • Club chairman Anthony Kleanthous revealed there was a kit and beer shortage
  • Their shambolic week saw the club scrambling for essentials before Saturday 

Barnet chairman Anthony Kleanthous on Monday revealed the National League side had no stewards, club shop, replica kit, chefs, beer, bench wear, shirt numbers or match balls just 24 hours before Saturday’s season opener against Notts County — which they lost 5-0.

The club’s shambolic week began on Monday when it transpired that the Barnet crest was not stitched on to their new kit. 

It became clear by Wednesday that there was to be a shortage of staff, and then on Thursday Kleanthous learned that Heineken were on strike, so Barnet would not get their regular beer delivery. 

Staff were forced to ‘locate’ 2,000 cans of Foster’s instead while the chef the club had hired was deemed ‘not up to standard’, forcing the decision to close the Hive bar.
