Edgar Davids inspires Barnet rout as manager & captain

PROSHOTS

The Dutch legend returned to football after almost two years out of the game to take his role at Underhill and got off to the perfect start with a 4-0 win on Friday

Former Champions League winner Edgar Davids inspired Barnet to their first victory of the season - a 4-0 win over Northampton - on his debut as the club's new player-coach.

The Dutchman handed himself a first professional start since turning out for Crystal Palace in October 2010 and also took the captain's armband for the game.

On-loan Notts County defender Krystian Pearce opened the scoring in the second half after Davids won his side a corner, with Andy Yiadom doubling the home side's lead shortly after.

John Oster added a third with a long-range effort, before Anthony Edgar wrapped up the points in stoppage time.

The Bees remain rooted to the bottom of League Two despite Friday night's rare three points, but the presence of the 39-year-old appears to have brought new life to the club.
