Atieno grateful for Gillingham deal



After spending seven months without a club, Kenya international Taiwo Atieno has finally landed himself a contract with English League Two side Barnet FC.

The deal was made concluded on Christmas day, with the striker making the squad for a Boxing Day 1-0 victory over league leaders Gillingham.

Taiwo did not, however, play in the match. Confirming the move, Taiwo promised to do all he can to make an impact.

“I am grateful to have joined Barnet and I am sure in my time with the club, my career will flourish,” said Taiwo.

“I promise to give my best in a bid to ensure that my team is on its best performance,” added the 27-year-old, who has also represented the likes of Walsall, Rochdale, Chester City and Darlington.

Until May 2012, Taiwo was on the books of League Two side Torquay United. He was released on 23 May with his place being taken by loanee Ryan Jarvis.

At the time of his release, Torquay’s head coach Martin Ling said that he opted to release the Kenyan because he believed he could not get enough out of him.

Taiwo has been capped four times for the Harambee Stars. After 24 matches, Barnet, with 22 points, are ranked 22nd in the 24-team English fourth tier league.
