Eastleigh midfielder Luke Coulson has joined North London club Barnet for an undisclosed fee.
Luke joined the Spitfires in January 2016 from Oxford City, and has been a key part of the team since. When we brought him, everyone knew that he had the potential to climb up the football ladder, and that if he lived up to this, a league club would come calling. Barnet, however, is in my view a surprise destination for Luke as in the summer, he was being linked with a move to the Midlands to join either Birmingham City or Wolves. Nothing, however, came of this and we expected a team of that calibre to come calling again later on in a separate transfer window. Obviously this hasn’t happened, and Luke has joined League 2 side Barnet instead. We do, however, wish Luke the best of luck in his career, and we will definitely be keeping an eye out for him!
Arguably Luke’s best game in a Spitfire shirt – vs Altrincham (16/4/16)
