Barnet F.C. was founded in 1888. It was an amateur team playing their matches at Queens Road until disbanding in 1901. A club was then formed calling itself Alston Works playing at Totteridge Lane. This then became Barnet Alston F.C. in 1906. They moved to Underhill a year later and combined with The Avenue to form Barnet and Alston in 1912.
In 1919 the Alston was dropped and the team progressed through the amateur leagues and turned professional in 1965. They made their name playing in the Southern League and were one of the founding teams of what is now the Conference, which they have just been relegated back into after ten glorious years in the Football League, their highest finishing position being last (24th) in Division 2 in the 1993-4 season. They were relegated into the Conference at the end of 2000-1 season.
During these years various honours have been collected.
