Date of birth
Reading-born forward Dave Tarpey joined Barnet from Maidenhead United ahead of last season in a mouth-watering transfer.
Tarpey began his career at Henley Town before joining Basingstoke Town two years later. His next club would be Hampton and Richmond Borough before he was sent out on loan twice to Walton and Hersham and Chertsey Town respectively. Farnborough was his move in 2012 before returning to Hampton and Richmond.
However, it was Maidenhead where he really made a name for himself after bagging 95 goals in 141 appearances, 45 of them coming in their National League South title winning season of 2016-17. His prolific form at York Road awarded him with a move to the Football League but it didn’t get off to the best of starts.
Tarpey only made two appearances for the Bees before damaging his ACL in September which meant he had to watch the rest of the season from the side-lines.
His focus now will be to regain full fitness but Barnet fans can expect something special when the time finally comes.
