Club Career

Club(s) Started his early football career playing for his school team, Nightingale High School and also with Redbridge District.  He was soon playing for Essex Boys and the South of England Boys' teams.  It was Graham Taylor's Watford FC that signed Barton as a schoolboy in 1984. But because of his small size, Watford released him and Leyton Orient FC signed him as a YTS trainee, but again, he was released after a year. Barton dropped into non-league football where Leytonstone FC offered him a contract and then Maidstone United FC paid £10,000 for him on 28 July 1989. He was now becoming noticed, and Ossie Ardiles attempted to take him to Newcastle United FC, but any bid was bettered by Wimbledon FC, and after 42 League appearances, Warren signed for £300,000 on 7 June 1990. Blackburn Rovers FC tried to sign him in 1992, as did Everton FC, Glasgow Celtic FC and Sheffield Wednesday FC. But after 180 league appearances and ten goals, it was Kevin Keegan's Newcastle United FC that spent £4.5 million on Barton on 5 June 1995, outbidding Arsenal FC, to break their record for a transfer fee paid and becoming Britain's most expensive defender. After 164 Premiership appearances and four goals, on 1 February 2002, Warren joined John Gregory's Derby County FC for £200,000. After 53 league appearances, he left County by mutual consent in September 2003 and joined Queen's Park Rangers FC on a non-contract basis on 7 October 2003, but played just threeleague matches before becoming injured and he rejoined Wimbledon FC on 27 February 2004 as a player-coach. After five league games, Wimbledon became Milton Keynes Dons FC and Barton rejoined Conference National side Dagenham & Redbridge FC, he played just twice before he retired from playing on 31 May 2005.
