The whole Barnet squad, plus four trialists, are set to feature in the first game of pre-season.
Barnet boss Paul Fairclough has revealed that every member of his squad, plus four trialists, are set to feature in the club's opening pre-season friendly.
Veteran goalkeeper Lee Harrison is expected to start and complete his return for The Bees, after three years away from the club with Leyton Orient and Peterborough United.
Meanwhile, young trialists Gary Hooper, Nicky Nicolau (pictured), Jason Puncheon and James Frayne will all be hopeful of impressing the manager enough to win themselves contracts at Underhill.
Eighteen-year-old striker Frayne is a nephew of former England number one David James, but picked up a groin injury in training, and so is a doubt for the game.
Versatile midfielders Hooper, 18, Nicolau, 22, and Puncheon, 20, each have different levels of professional experience, ranging from The Conference to The Championship.
But each of them will be hoping to play to their potential with the League Two Londoners for the challenge of Southern Premier League opposition Hitchin Town on Wednesday, ahead of Arsenal's trip to Underhill on Saturday.
