Altrincham Club Crest image

Formed in 1888, the North London club worked their way through The Athenian and Isthmian Leagues building a reputation as one of the country’s top Amateur Clubs before turning professional in 1965 and eventually joining the Conference from The Southern League in 1979.

Barry Fry took over as manager in 1980 and became a very important driving force behind the club’s challenge for a Football League place, which was eventually achieved in 1991.

‘The Bees’ immediately experienced two promotions and a relegation, but then settled down in Division Three for seven seasons. Barnet then returned for four years in the Conference, before Paul Fairclough led the club back to the Football League in 2005.

Sadly, the club’s future has often appeared to be linked with the problems regarding their ground at Underhill Stadium and now back in the Conference, perhaps Barnet can once again build that special reputation as an attractive footballing club in a special home of their own.
