Simon Emmett, Underhill

  • Director

After 106 years, Barnet Football club played their last ever match at Underhill Stadium on 20th April 2013. Forced to move by an unsympathetic council, the club and it’s fans have to come to terms with bidding farewell to the central focus of their lives. The club clings, by its fan’s fingernails to the bottom division of League Two. Unless the club starts to win matches, and fast, barnet will be relegated. Using candid, intimate and often humorous interviews from fans to well known football faces including Arsene Wenger and Barry Fry, this film looks at what makes this modest, unglamorous but fiercely supported English club and it’s historic stadium so special. A rare, quirky and heart warming tale. Underhill was recently selected for the Berlin Football Film Festival.
