Player Career Stats
Below are the career stats for the Barnet Squad for during the close season.
This list shows the number of appearances (started and came on as sub), and goals scored. Players who have not appeared for the First Team are also shown.
They are sorted by career appearances, then career sub appearances. Note that some of the players are shown with (number) - see the notes below for more information.
The last Senior Appearance (SA) dates are shown for reference only. I do not show these during the season unless the player has left.
Players' season stats can be found in the relevant season section, eg season 2012/13.
Past players' stats are also available.
Note that this table can be sorted or filtered using the Firefox TableTools extension. There is more information about this here.
Below is a list of links to news stories concerning the players' positions with the club. These are mostly links to the official site. PLEASE NOTE: as of 01 August 2012 the club published a redesigned website. It seems none of the below links (up to that date) work any more. Some of the stories have re-appeared with new links (the one for signing Jon Nurse for example) but I doubt very much they have all transferred across. Please take my word for it that the below information was taken from the Official Site from a story published on the date shown. John Snow, Website Editor.
Anything else relating to players in general, or the manager / coaching / backroom staff, is below. (Earlier links are on the past players list.)
If you spot any errors or can help with links to authorative articles then please let me know on firstname.lastname@example.org
I use the names as they appear on the Barnet programmes. There are some inconsistencies in the names that the players use on their shirts and what appears on other sites and papers. These include
The appearance details on this page usually come from the the details on the match reports that are published on the BBC. If any of these are disputed then I shall seek clarification from the club.
Still with Club?
Whether or not a player is with the club is taken from the official website. There are sometimes players where there has been no announcement from the club - usually fringe players. I do keep an eye on this and occasionally contact the club to clarify. See notes below for more information about this. Players who leave the club without making an appearance remain on this list until the end of the season but do not subsequently appear on the past players' stats.
Both the Home programmes and official website. This is the squad number allocated to the player for the current season, presently 2008/09.
If two players have the same squad number this is where a player coming into the squad is issued with a number of a player who has already left. I occasionally contact the club to clarify where there seems to be a mistake on either the site or the programme (which is indeed what it has always turned out to be so far!)

If you think I may have overlooked something, especially if you have some evidence you can cite (such as a link to an authorative website), then I should be grateful if you contact me on email@example.com
Thanks, John Snow, Website Editor.

No Squad Number
When the squad numbers are announced, usually in July, there is a nice clean list to go by. But as the season progresses various players may be registered without contracts; typically these will be free-agents and trainee players (from the Hive).
The way I understand it, a player has to be registered with the club to play for the club. However, they don't have to be contracted to the club. In theory a player can be registered to the club indefinitely even though neither the player nor the club has any intention of them playing. The player would only need to be de-registered if another club in the same league wanted to register them. It would seem silly to consider such players as 'with the club'.
So, in the above list, a player is considered to still be 'with the club' if:
A player is not considered to still be with the club if:
All the above scenarios are caveated with "unless there is reason to believe otherwise".
An example of this is if they have appeared on the squad list on the back of Barnet programmes but no longer do so, although there has otherwise been no official confirmation from the club. Not all players who have been issued squad numbers appear on the programme squad list so their absence does not necessarily mean they are not part of the squad. (I said it was complicated didn't I?)
Many thanks to Kev Mullen from whose explanations, and patient answers to my questions, the above has been derived.
Note that this article on the official site, published on 10 May 2010, says that successful candidates for the 16-18 Football Education Programme (in partnership with Stanmore College) will be registered as a Barnet FC player (non-contract). I presume the same goes for the scholars also mentioned in that article. While these students and scholars would satisfy the criteria above (ie they are registered as players) the lack of other information about them means it would be pointless to attempt to include them on this page.
Similarly, it does not discriminate between starts and came on as sub (or replaced by a sub). The excel sheet I use for this is not that sophisticated.
Note that the figure is rounded to the nearest percentage.
This is no indication as to the date the player actually joined the club.
The Soccerbase website also shows different figures, including a bogus substitute appearance against Stalybridge Celtic in 2001/02. Their figures are wrong.
If there are any stats you would like to see, or have any comments on either the above suggestions or the stats already shown, please email me.
