Edgar Davids registered to play for Barnet
Friday 19 October 2012
Former Holland international and joint Barnet head coach Edgar Davids has been registered to play in tonight's npower League Two home fixture against Northampton.
The 39-year-old former Champions League winner has been given the number 38 shirt as he dusts down his boots to return to first-team action in the less than glamorous surroundings of Underhill.
Davids had been out of football since a brief stint at Championship side Crystal Palace in 2010, until joining Mark Robson in the Barnet dug-out last week.
His arrival at the club failed to spark a revival of fortunes for the Bees, as they lost 4-1 to Plymouth last weekend to remain as the bottom team in the Football League.
