With great thanks to Barnet and Hendon Times reporter Adam Newson, we ask a few questions on defender Michael Hector, who was on loan at League Two side Barnet for the 2011/12 season.
1) Give a short summary of Hector`s loan spell with Barnet?
It's been a good loan for both Hector and Barnet. Obviously the young defender has gained plenty of Football League experience during his time at the club and the Bees have had the reward of a defender who could, one day, play at the top level. He's impressed the Barnet supporters and was many fans unofficial player of the season.
He has played in several positions during his time at Underhill - centre-back, right-back and a couple of games in the centre of midfield - and he has shown he is capable of adapting to new positions with relative ease.
2) What do you reckon are his strengths?
He is very comfortable with the ball and was dubbed a young Rio Ferdinand by former Bees manger Lawrie Sanchez. His passing has also created many opportunities for the Barnet strikers this season. He is also very good a reading the game and many times nicks the ball in front of the opposition striker.
3) What do you believe are his weaknesses?
Sometimes his over eagerness to get the ball before the attackers can leave him caught out of position but no doubt those decisions will improve as he continues his development. On occasion he can overplay in tight positions when sometimes it is better to just put the ball out of play and regroup.
4) I`m told he also played a central midfield role at certain points, where did he look more effective?
While his move into midfield worked, he has looked most comfortably when in the heart of the Barnet defence. He certainly has the technical ability to play in midfield but his overall attributes will more than likely lead to him playing as a centre-back.
5) Would you have him on loan again or do you reckon he should be playing at a higher level?
If Barnet were offered the chance to take him back on loan next season I'm sure they would jump at the opportunity. However, it would probably be more beneficial for his development to now move onto a high division. Whether that be League One or the Championship remains to be seen but there is no doubt he has a big future in front of him.
