He became an instrumental part of manager Justin Gardner’s side last season and I’m sure is set to play a huge role once again.

Palmer joined Barking late in the season last term after being released from Romford where he impressed in the early stages of the campaign.

The former Clapton winger made just 10 appearances and scored once before the season was brought to an abrupt end due to the Covid-19 outbreak which eventually made the season null and void.

The dup join the likes of Abs Seymour, Manny Agboola, Ricky Tarbard, Michael Dixon, Junior Dadson, Max Bradford, Daniel Flemming, Donnel Anderson, Junior Luke, Billy Jones, Sam Owusu, Jack Hayes, Kevin Songolo, Dumeni GB-Dumaka, Shermadin Artmeladze and Ben O’Brien.
