The Bees will leave their home of 106 years at the end of the campaign for the Hive, and celebrated their last game under the lights with a 2-0 win over Fleetwood.

But while the former Holland international will always have a soft spot for the stadium, he is adamant the club's decision to move is the right one.

"I think that Underhill is a special place, especially when you come here for the first time," he told the Barnet Times.

"They have the hill which is uncommon and I think that the charm of that aspect will live long in our memories.

"Sometimes it is time to move on. We have a great opportunity and we have to take it.

"If that means we can develop quickly then as a football club you need to take it with both hands.

"That is why it is very important to stay up. Not only because of the new stadium but also because of the ambitions we have, the academy we have and philosophy that is behind the new plan.

"Going into a lower league would delay that but I am confident even if that did happen we would overcome it."
