Dartford striker Harry Crawford pleased to be back at the club after leaving Vanarama Conference rivals Barnet

06 August 2014

Harry Crawford has spoken of his relief at rejoining Dartford.

The striker, 22, left the Darts in January 2013 to sign for Barnet but he ended up scoring just three times for the Bees in 40 appearances.

Released by the north London club at the end of last season, Crawford opened transfer talks with Dartford boss Tony Burman and eventually signed a contract last week.

Crawford's strike rate in a Dartford shirt is one goal every two games.

He said: "It’s a relief to get it done. I’ve been speaking to Tony for quite a while now, over the summer, and we finally got it sorted so I’m happy to be back.

"I’ve spoken to Tony since I left Barnet at the end of April. We kept in touch over the summer and then things just clicked towards the end of the summer.

"I’ve been keeping fit myself – obviously I’ve missed some football training and a few match times but I’m happy to get it sorted and I’m looking forward to Wrexham on Saturday.

"I like it here. I’ve had good times here, I like the club, I like the set-up, I know how it works and the fans have been brilliant here. I just feel happy here."

Crawford's opportunities at Barnet were limited at times.

But he said: "I’m not one to regret or dwell on anything like that. That’s all happened, it’s gone.

"It could have gone better, it could have gone worse, it’s just how it works out.

"I’ve gained loads of experience by working with a manager such as Edgar Davids and I think I’ve developed as a player. Maybe one or two injuries put me back a little bit but I’m forgetting about that, moving on to this season. I’m quite excited and looking forward to it."

Crawford added: "I’ve got a smile on my face, I’m enjoying it, I’ve been here before and I know how it works. I get on well with a lot of the players here, the staff and the fans so I’m looking forward to it. Hopefully it’ll be a good season ahead.

"I’m looking forward to getting some minutes under my belt, some game time and hopefully get a few more goals, like I have done here previously and hopefully we can get things running on Saturday."
