Neil Tarrant

Neil Tarrant started his senior career with his hometown club Darlington where he was unable to break into the first team fold, he had a brief spell in Ireland with Shamrock Rovers where he only made a handful of appearances before moving to Scotland to join Ross County in the Third Division. Team mate Derek Adams was enjoying some fine goal scoring form with the Staggies which eventually won him a move to Motherwell in 1998, this opened the door for Tarrant who stepped in to fill the void left in the County attack, Tarrant would of course go in a similar rich vein of scoring form which resulted in him winning a move to English Premiership side Aston Villa, his time at Villa would however see the young striker struggle to break into the first team and he was loaned out to Ayr United and York City before arriving at Fir Park on a 3 month loan deal at the start of the 2001/02 season.

Tarrant failed to make any real impact at Motherwell, despite having huge potential he proved to be a disappointing signing for the club and he would only make six first team appearances before being allowed to return to his parent club, upon his return to Villa he was released, his career would be mainly spent in the lower echelons of English football.
