Harry Nicholas Arter (born 28 December 1989) is a footballer who plays as a midfielder for Bournemouth.

He began his career at Charlton Athletic, where he made one substitute appearance in 2007 and was loaned to non-league Staines Town and Welling United before leaving for Woking. After one season at Woking, he returned to The Football League with Bournemouth, becoming a regular following a loan to Carlisle United in 2011. He contributed to Bournemouth's promotion to the Championship in 2013, and to the Premier League two years later.

Born in England, Arter represents the Republic of Ireland internationally. He played for the nation at under-19 level, and received a first senior call-up in March 2015.

Club career[edit]

Charlton Athletic[edit]

Born in Sidcup, in the London borough of Bexley, Arter began his career at Charlton Athletic.[2] He made his professional debut, and only appearance for the club, on 25 September 2007 in the third round of the League Cup, away to Luton Town. He came on as an 86th-minute substitute for Svetoslav Todorov as Charlton lost 1–3 after extra time.[3]

In the 2008–09 season, he had loan spells with Staines Town and Welling United.

Woking[edit]

On 2 June 2009, Arter joined Woking on a one-year contract. At the end of the 2009–10 season, it was well documented that Arter would be leaving Woking, with several Football League clubs chasing Arter. Woking's website soon confirmed that Arter had agreed to sign for Bournemouth with the fee to be decided by an FA tribunal, as the two clubs could not agree a transfer fee.

Bournemouth[edit]

On 7 June 2010, Arter joined League One club Bournemouth for an undisclosed fee, signed by Eddie Howe.[4][5] Two months later, he made his debut in their first match of the season, away to his former team Charlton. He was booked in the first half for a foul on Akpo Sodje and substituted at half time for Michael Symes as Bournemouth lost 0–1.[6] Having fallen out of favour, on 4 March 2011, Arter went on a one-month loan to fellow League One team Carlisle United.[7] The next day he made his debut for the club, replacing Liam Noble for the last 30 minutes away to Brighton & Hove Albion. He scored an added-time equaliser, the first of his professional career, but a minute later Liam Bridcutt scored Brighton's winner in a 4–3 victory.[8]

On 13 August 2011, Arter replaced Mark Molesley in the 66th minute of a game against Sheffield Wednesday at Dean Court, and 17 minutes later confirmed a 2–0 win with his first goal for the club.[9] Overall, he scored 5 goals in 34 league matches that season.

Arter was sent off after 26 minutes on 25 August 2012, in Bournemouth's 1–1 draw at Preston North End.[10] On 20 October, in Howe's first match back in charge, Arter scored in a 3–1 home win over Tranmere Rovers.[11] Altogether, he scored 8 goals in 37 league matches, including in the 3–1 win for the penultimate game of the season against Carlisle on 20 April 2013, which secured Bournemouth promotion to the Championship.[12]

On 2 May 2015, Arter scored in Bournemouth's 3–0 win over former club Charlton at The Valley, which earned their first ever promotion to the Premier League as winners of the Championship.[13]

International career[edit]

Arter played for the Republic of Ireland under-17 and under-19 teams, being eligible through his Sligo-born grandparents.[14]

In February 2015, Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill said that Arter was on his radar and could be called up to the squad for the UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying game against Poland.[15] He earned his first call-up for that game on 12 March, following what O'Neill described as a "very good season",[16] but did not play in it.

Personal life[edit]

Arter is the brother-in-law of former England captain Scott Parker, who is married to his sister Carly. They both began their careers at Charlton.[17]
