PERSON STATS

  PUNCHEON, Jason
Born In Croydon On 26/06/1986  England
Player Left: 18/06/2008

One of the most exciting players to play for Barnet in the last ten years, but maybe could be even more of a player if he had the right attitude.

Jason was signed by Barnet when no one else would take a second look at him. After a fall out with Danny Wilson, hed been released by MK Dons during the 2005/06 season and had only turned out a few times for Fisher Athletic and Lewes, before Paul Fairclough handed him a pre-season trial with Barnet. He impressed, but was only given an initial one month deal. It quickly became apparent Punch had the talent, but also an attitude and a bit of baggage to go with it. He was fast becoming a fans favourite, but then after a game against his old club MK Dons, which hed been suspended for anyway, in September 2006, he was arrested on suspicion of robbery. It was clear why Fairclough had been cautious, but in the end, Puncheon was found not guilty and returned to Underhill to put on some quite sensational displays.

Breathtaking goals against Colchester, Shrewsbury, Hartlepool and Bradford particularly stand out from his time, along with simply devastating individual displays against the likes of Northampton in the FA Cup. He was undoubtedly a special player, but at times could frustrate both team mates and fans a like with his on the pitch attitude. However, to give him credit, Puncheon signed a new deal with Barnet in 2007, despite there being interest from other clubs. Signing a new deal increased his transfer value and got us a decent fee from him when he did leave.

In the summer of 2008, Plymouth Argyle splashed £250,000 on the Bees winger. A good deal for both parties. It hasnt quite worked out for Punch at Home Park, however. He only made 6 appearances for Argyle last season, before being loaned out to former club MK Dons. He is also spending the entire 2009-10 season on loan at Stadium: MK.
