1 week ago By Jack Moore

Northwood have announced that they have appointed Dean Barker as first team manager with immediate effect.

Chairman Ian Barry said: "We look forward to working with Dean; his enthusiasm and his proven ability to develop players was key in our appointment.

“We know that he will be made welcome at Northwood, and we are all looking forward to the new season with hopes high for a good campaign."

Dean joins the Woods from Wingate & Finchley, where he managed the club’s Under 23 side, guiding them to this season’s Bostik Isthmian League Development North Division title as well as two cup finals. The 34-year-old was previously at Cockfosters.

Dean said this morning: "I'm delighted to become the new manager of Northwood FC. It's a well established non-League outfit with a proud history and I'm looking forward to working with everyone at the club to have a successful season. I can't wait to meet all the supporters and make us a community club that everyone enjoys being a part of."
