Chronological history

Below is a chronological history of Barnet FC.

It is largely based on details found on the Football Club History Database Index, but is also based on other sources. Any queries, inaccuracies or ommisions, please contact us. Please note, a lot of the earlier years will not be consistent with the other History on this site. This will be corrected... one day. The detailed history is more reliable (IMHO).
