Sanchez joins Barnet

17 April 2011 08:00

Lawrie Sanchez has joined Barnet in a consultancy role until the end of the season as the club bid to avoid relegation from the Football League.

The 51-year-old former Wycombe, Northern Ireland and Fulham boss will assist caretaker manager Giuliano Grazioli in the Bees' last four matches of the season.

Barnet are second-bottom and lie three points from safety but Sanchez said: "I've come in to help Giuliano, who is a football acquaintance, with the big task of helping Barnet off the bottom rungs of League Two."

Grazioli added on the club's website, "This is an opportunity for me to learn from someone with experience at Premiership and international level. He has so much to give and there is a lot I can learn.

"We've got a job to do and three weeks to get it done."

Ex-Barnet striker Grazioli was placed in charge last week following Martin Allen's shock departure to Notts County.
