Biographical Text

An England youth international, Lee joined Tottenham Hotspur as a schoolboy, eventually earning a full professional contract in July 2002.

After featuring in Spurs’ reserve team, Exeter City, who had endured a troubled start to the season which ultimately ended in relegation from the Football League, signed Barnard on loan in November 2002.

The 18-year-old striker only made three appearances for the Grecians against Boston United (his debut), Cambridge United and Bury, but failed to hit the target, and returned to White Hart Lane.

He then had subsequent loan spells at Stevenage Borough (4 appearances, 1 goal) in March 2004; Leyton Orient (8 appearances, 0 goals) who he joined in November 2004 and Northampton Town (5 appearances, 0 goals) in March 2005.

Barnard made his long awaited first team debut in the Premier League with Tottenham Hotspur when he was introduced as substitute against Manchester United in April 2006, which proved to be the first of three league outings.

The player was loaned once more, this time to Crewe Alexandra in two separate spells during 2006-07 where he netted 3 goals in ten league appearances.

Southend United completed the signing of Barnard in January 2008 for an undisclosed fee and scored nine goals for the club in his first season at Roots Hall. He moved to Southampton in January 2010 for an undisclosed fee.
