Chris Barker - Biography
Christopher Andrew "Chris" Barker (born 2 March 1980) is an English professional footballer who plays as a defender for Aldershot Town. His brother, Richie is also a professional footballer.
He signed for Championship rivals Plymouth Argyle on an emergency loan deal on 9 August 2008, allowing him to make his debut later that day against Wolverhampton Wanderers. The transfer was made permanent two days later, with Barker signing a three-year contract for an undisclosed fee. On 5 August 2010, Barker joined Southend United on loan for one month after being told he was surplus to requirements by Argyle manager Peter Reid. He signed a two-year contract with the club at the end of the month on a free transfer. On 30 April 2011, Barker was voted Southend's player of the year for the 2010–11 season. Having been vice-captain during his first season with the club, he was appointed captain ahead of the new campaign after the departure of Craig Easton. He scored his first goal for Southend as they were defeated by Crewe Alexandra in the 2011–12 League Two play-offs.
In June 2016, Barker signed for Hereford as a player-coach. In October 2016, he joined National League South side Weston-super-Mare as player/assistant manager to boss Scott Bartlett. Barker left Weston-super-Mare in July 2017.
