Braintree Sign Holman and Barnet & Imps Don’t
Braintree have pipped Barnet to the signature of dead-shot Dan Holman who bagged 29 for Histon in his first season for the club. He is also up and running this season. Histon are not in the best of financial shape but were not prepared to allow the lad to go to Barnet on the cheap 6 days ago. But now John Beck’s old club have accepted a second bid in from a BSP club which turned out to be Braintree – oh how times have changed with the Imps electing instead to go for 5 in 50 Larkin!
Dan looks worth his weight in gold. Signed from Long Buckby in July 2011, he bagged…… wait for it …. 60 goals in 77 appearances and followed it up a league higher in the BSN with 29 last term. He even tried his luck from 30 yards against Boston this week who went on to win 6-0. Dan won every award going at the Blue Square North club last season and got league recognition with the BSN player of the month in January.
