Barnes-Homer Coup for Nuneaton

Blue Square Bet North club Nuneaton Town have pulled off something of a coup by signing former England `C` striker Matthew Barnes-Homer.

Barnes-Homer left Conference Premier side Luton Town on the 1st January 2012, his contract terminated by mutual consent.

He played just once in the 2011/12 season for the Hatters before falling out of favour with manager Gary Brabin and finishing the year on loan to npower League One outfit Rochdale, where he made five appearances.

He began his career as a trainee at Wolves before going on to lead something of a nomadic life prior to finding his feet at Kidderminster Harriers.

After leaving Molineux he tried his luck in the United States before returning to England and, following success with a clutch of non-League sides, he was snapped by Wycombe Wanderers.

He struggled to make an impression at Adam Park but, after being released at the end of the 2006/07 season, then Harriers manager Mark Yates beat off competition from a host of sides to capture his signature.

His form in front of goal at Kidderminster had alerted the attentions of a number of Football League teams but Barnes-Homer was suitably impressed by the Hatters’ vision and became Richard Money’s first signing as manager of Luton.
