The Big Match Preview: Barnet vs Wycombe

All you need to know for our trip to The Hive.

12 July 2019

The curtain is raised on the Chairboys' pre-season campaign with a trip to National League side Barnet on Saturday.

Former Chairboy Darren Currie sees his side head into the match on the back of a resounding victory over Berkhamstead on Tuesday evening, with a brace from Shaquile Coulthirst and a goal for both Jack Taylor and Medy Elito securing the win.

The Bees have bolstered their ranks ahead of their second successive season in the fifth tier with the signing of former Watford keeper Scott Loach and were boosted when fan-favourite Elliott Johnson extended his contract with the club.

As well as Currie, there will be a few familiar names for Chairboys supporters who are currently with the North London-based side. Former Wycombe midfielder Andre Boucaud signed for the Bees last summer and made 18 appearances during the 2018/19 campaign - whilst Peter Taylor's number two Junior Lewis is Currie's assistant head coach at the club.

Using the car? These are the recommended road directions

From Wycombe take the M40 towards London continuing on to Western Avenue / A40. At the Hanger Lane roundabout take the 2nd exit onto the North Circular Road A406. Take the 1st exit left at Staples Corner roundabout onto the A5 / Edgware Road. Follow the A5 for 3 miles. Turn left into Camrose Avenue, continue along this road and The Hive will be on your right just after the width restriction.

Mileage from High Wycombe = 32 (average journey time 50 minutes)

Suggested car parking area
Barnet FC has on-site parking for up to 500 vehicles on a first-come, first-served basis at a cost of £5 on match days. However with only one exit available then expect some delays after the game. There is some street parking but nothing on Camrose Avenue. There are also 150 car parking spaces at Canons Park Tube Station (a 10-minute walk from stadium).

Fancy using the train?
The nearest Underground station is Canons Parks on the Jubilee Line. It is around a 5 / 10 minute walk to the stadium. As you come out of the station turn left onto Whitchurch Lane. Cross over the road and you will come to some metal railings where there is an entrance to some playing fields which you can walk through to the ground. This brings you out at the North Terrace End of the stadium which is reserved for away fans.

Facilities for away fans
Visiting supporters will be housed in the West Stand - and seating will be unsegregated. The stand does not have any supporting pillars and has a good height between rows, meaning that you get a good view of the game. Within the stand there is Legends Bar where you will be able to purchase refreshments throughout the course of the day.

Spare time before or after match?
The nearest pub is Moranos on Station Road, a short walk from Canons Park Station (come out of the station, turn right and it is in the row of shops further down on the right). This Irish themed wine bar is quite comfortable and has a number of large TV screens. It is about a 10 minute walk to the away turnstiles, cutting through the playing fields (see Fancy using the train? above). Close to Kingsbury Tube Station there is a Wetherspoons pub called JJ Moons. If travelling on the Jubilee Line from Central London, then Kingsbury is only two stops before Canons Park.
