Mark Robson has been names as the new manager of Barnet.

Robson, 43, a former player with West Ham and Charlton among others, leaves his position as first-team coach at Championship side Peterborough to take the reins at Underhill.

Martin Allen replaced Lawrie Sanchez in mid-April to oversee the Bees for the third time, but his short-term contract expired after he ensured League Two survival on the final day of last season.

Robson will now take charge of first-team matters as well as aiding the development of Academy football at Barnet in what is described as a ‘comprehensive transformation of the club’s footballing strategy’.

Director of football Paul Fairclough added on Barnet’s official website: “I want the club to become renowned for the way they pass the ball and try to play their way through opposition, as opposed to over them. Obviously results are important but those results can be achieved by playing good, entertaining football.”

Fairclough added: “In Mark Robson we have secured the services of a forward-thinking coach who will lead the club along a new and exciting pathway. I truly see this as a new dawn for Barnet Football Club.”
